Red Carpet Beauty Trends from the Oscars
The Oscars not only sets a tone for fashion trends on its famous and utterly glamorous red carpet, but for beauty trends as well. We had help from Lisa Moore, makeup artist extraordinaire & Chanel Beauty Ambassador with Saks Fifth Avenue, to recreate our favorite celebrity faces of the night on our models for Channel 12’s Arizona Midday. Here’s how she translated the looks. Plus, we have tips on getting your skin HDTV and paparazzi ready!
Emma Stone | Maureen Montagne
Emma’s makeup artist reportedly had seen her Givenchy gown as it was being created over the course of several months. Its vintage feel and gold fabric gave rise to an ethereal goddess beauty inspiration. To complement her red hair and fair skin, she used a combination of golds for her eyes and brick-red for her lips. To ensure her skin looked its best, she used the Sisley-Paris Black Rose Cream Mask to plump and hydrate Emma’s face. Our makeup artist, Lisa, recreated Emma’s look on Maureen using shimmery gold shadow from Chanel’s Tisse Essentiel Quad Eyeshadow palette and Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir Intense (our personal favorite!). She gave her soft rosy cheeks with lots of Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed and drew a perfectly-painted red pout using Lip Definer in Seduction and Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Daring Red.
Karlie Kloss | Karen Ingram
Karlie went for natural, warm-hued beauty at the Oscars, including coppery eye shadow, rosy cheeks and orangey lipstick. With a few tweaks to better complement Karen’s skin tone, Lisa recreated the look using shimmery shadow from Chanel’s Codes Elegants Quad Eyeshadow palette and Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir Intense, plus Powder Blush in Rose Bronze for her cheeks layered with Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed. She finished the look with a peachy, natural lip using Chanel Lip Definer in Pretty Pink and Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Tender Beige, then topped with Rouge Coco Gloss in Caramel.
Viola Davis | Katherine Lowery
Viola’s makeup artist kept her makeup subtle, but impactful, to complement her gorgeous vivid red dress. She started with flawless, matte skin — Viola’s skin secret is using celebrity aesthetician Olga Lorencin’s Red Carpet Facial in a Box — then added a smoky eye and natural lip color. Lisa designed a very similar look for Katherine by applying a smoky eye using Chanel’s Tisse Smoky Quad Eyeshadow palette and Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir Intense. She then added Powder Blush in Rose Bronze to her cheeks, layered with Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, and finished with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss in Caramel on her lips for a sheer, natural look.
How do you get your skin red carpet ready??
We recommend the following:
- Before you apply your makeup, exfoliate your skin and use a great moisturizing mask.
- Give your tired eyes an instant lift with Chanel’s LE LIFT Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitalizer.
- To plump skin and fine lines overall at the last minute, try intraceuticals atoxelene line wand (we swear by this!).
- Don’t forget your favorite moisturizer followed by a skin primer on top to create a smoother surface for your makeup.
- And of course make sure you drink a lot of water, eat healthy and get plenty of sleep in the week prior to your event!
To chat with Lisa and have her get you camera ready (or simply help you update your look), you’ll find her at Saks Fifth Avenue in Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix.
