Oscar Worthy

Most of us will never get the chance to attend the Oscars, NYC Fashion Week, the Grammys, much less be nominated, have our makeup and hair done by the Pros. Since I'm not in Hollywood painting faces this season, I thought why not recreate some 'Oscar Worthy' red carpet looks, for fun. Exclusively, for yours truly. There will be no crazy, weird, difficult makeup looks, only pretty eyes, lips and cheeks. Looks you can wear whenever the mood strikes. Maybe at your own, fabulous Oscar viewing party, sipping cocktails from the couch. Stayed tuned for more Oscar worthy looks...

Green Envy.

Wearing bold color looks cool when done right. Keep the rest of the face bare, and flawless. This look takes literally five minutes. I left the skin radiant and hydrated, applying Armani's Crema Nera Regenerating Cream and byTerry Concealer Touche-Expert Advanced to the under eyes and lid. (Remember to hit the inner & upper eye corners to create light.) Philosophy's Mineral Dual bronzer-blush, swept over the cheekbones, nose and eye crease. Mac Cosmetic's Fluid Line in Dark Envy, a stunning, emerald shade of green sparkle. Applies creamy and smooth, dries fast and stays put. I used a fine tip synthetic brush for precise application. A swipe of byTerry's powder, and you're ready to paint the town.

Fire and Ice

White shadow can be difficult, but provides a dramatic effect when paired with black. Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in white provides a shimmering, photo ready base. I applied Stila's Liquid Liner close to the lash line and in between the lashes. Armani Black Eyeliner Pencil #4 rimmed inside the eye, creates a dramatic black & white contrast. Every girl should wear Shu Uemura's Dazzling Black Diamond lashes, look and feel like a million bucks. Mac Cosmetic's Pigment in Soft Pearl White applied with the finger into the brow bone creates an ethereal, goddess effect. Nars The Multiple cream stick in Orgasm highlights the cheek a lovely shade of peachy pink. Dab Mac's Soft Pearl White Pigment on top of Nars Orgasm on high cheeks for  megawatt shimmer. Mac's Viva Glam Gaga in chalky pink compliments the blush, balancing the eye. The modern take on vintage Hollywood glam.

Shades Of Purple

Partial to a smokey eye, I love to mix it up, the color purple.
What better time for knock out, full on glam eyes than the Oscars.
Use byTerry Light-Expert Foundation Stick in Vanilla Light,
creates a bare, flawless canvas. 
Apply under-eye concealer last, saves times on shadow cleanup.
Mally Roncal Ever Color Shadow Stick in Plum swept and blended into the crease, along lower lash line creates a smokin,' eggplant base. I love a bare lid, adds light & dimension.
myface Blingtone packs serious, shimmer punch, Purple Haze  dazzle the red carpet.
Mac Pro Longwear Eye Liner in Ice Black rimmed inside the upper and lower lid is 12 HR waterproof formula holds all night.
Ardell lashes in Babies Black, light and airy, deliver va-voom, camera ready eyes.
L'Oreal Infallible 24 HR Eyeshadow in Gold, dusted above the brow bone and high cheek brings glamour up a notch. 
Tom Ford Bronzer a warm, muddy brown with a hint shimmer, paired with Nars Cream ShadowCayenne to the lip is a sexy, chocolate delight.
