Oscar Worthy Duplicity is Key

I've been thinking about the title of my very ambitious 'Oscar Worthy' posts. In my book, we're all worthy. If beauty and makeup make your world a prettier place, that's cool. Some of us may be Oscar royalty, others may not. The universal evening brings us closer together, united in celebration of magic created on the big screen. Go ahead, dream. Dare to dream, big and bold. You are the celebrity in your story.

Double Take.










I'm a lucky, lucky girl. Beauty brands have been very good to the blog, and my Oscar Worthy looks endeavor. Since diversity is the spice of life, I created two slightly different eye variations, changing only the eyelid base variable. I wanted to create a smokey eye, in smoldering black. When I received Hard Candy's sparkly, funky, gorge Spring products, I had to use Shadow Dancers, Night & Day. 
Liquid to powder eyes. A Celestial turquoise, luminizing pearl, duo cream applied to the lid, dries in lightning speed. byTerry Color-Fix Cream Eye Shadow, Silver Granite, true silver glow glides on smooth, and feels natural. Hard Candy Meteor-eyes Black Hole baked, high pigment swirls of silver and black, creates an edgy, bold look. For added intensity, wet the shadow. Mac Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Black Ice inside the upper and lower lash line makes a statement. Mac Lash #20, a touch of density. Nars Stilo Liquid Liner, so thin & precise, one stroke application is all you need. I applied Armani Maestro Foundation post shadow application, avoiding smokey - eye spillage. Shu Uemura Sunlight Peach Dome Blush, creates peachy keen cheeks. A little goes a long way, blends well with fingertips, a sponge or foundation brush. Hard Candy Lip Def, Madison Ave. 3D pearl, soft copper tone screams Oscar, I am worthy.
