For Oscars 2010 beauty, I personally felt there were two themes – the red lips theme and the smokey eye theme – two versions of the Red Carpet Look. Here are my favourites…
Sandra Bullock choose to accessories her gorgeous dress by keeping her hair simple – sleek and glossy with a side part and the ends curling over her shoulder draws one eye from her gorgeous strong red lips and simple eye makeup to her dress. In case you were wondering, she has on her lips the newest Chanel lipsticks called Rouge Cocos in the shade Paris.
Charlize Theron was another lady who chose to wear red for her lips – her version is the classic tomato red. Shane Paish created this stunning look with the following products… Skin – Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation. Lips – Rouge Dior in Celebrity Red. Eyes- Diorshow Unlimited Mascara for thick, long lashes and 5-Coleurs Eyeshadow in Incognito for subtle colour to the eyelids. Cheeks-Diorblush in A Touch of Blush. Her was sleek an side parted.
Who says you can’t pair strong eyes with strong lips? Cameron Diaz went with side-swept hair and paired her red lips with heavily kohl-rimmed eyes.
Smokey eyes was the other theme of the night…
Kate Winslet choose to create soft waves, once again parted on the side for her hairstyle. Slightly smokey eyes with a neutral lip, letting her Tiffany diamond necklace be the “star” of her look.
I am quite partial to Posh’s look, very chic and glamorous!
Victoria Beckham seems to like her cheekbones which were nicely defined with her blusher and her updo only served to add height to her cheekbones. Her heavily smoked eyes were softened with her fringe to frame her face. Neutral lips to match her eyes and blusher.
Another favourite smokey eye look…
Kristen Stewart kept her complexion light and natural with blusher on the apples of her cheek. Her prominent brows and smokey eyes (Try grey eyeshadow applied to the lower lid and lower rim) served to emphasize her gorgeous eyes! Her soft goth look was completed was neutral lips.
Another one of my favourite looks…
Anna Kendrick parted her fringe and pinned back her tousled locks to enhance the romantic feel of her dress. She choose to go with soft smokey eyes and rosy cheeks and lips. A gorgeous blend of sexiness and innocence.
Jennifer Lopaz’s went with smokey eyes and an updo…NARS make-up artist Matthew Vanleeuween explains how he came up look:
‘Based on her dress, I wanted to create an ethereal movie-star look. I kept the cheekbones high and highlighted with the NARS Enchanted Cream Blush for a soft and supportive look.’
Products: Highlighter – Orgasm Illuminator, Cheeks- Enchanted Cream Blush, Eyes – D. Gorgeous Single Eyeshadow & Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara, Lips- Cruising Lipstick.
Amanda Seyfried had a side-parted updo but choose to make it sleek. She teamed her hair with rosy cheeks and lips and defined eyes.
Nicole Richie had a very fabulous strong smoky eye. She has black liner outlining the eyes and ended with a winged tip. Blue eyeshadow mirrored the winged shape of the liner while white shadow highlighted her brow bone and emphasized her intricate eye makeup. Her base was flawless with nude lips and cheeks and hair pulled-back into a tight bun in order not to compete with her eyes.
I felt that the looks created for Oscar 2010 were quite gorgeous and yet quite subtle nicely matching their outfits. It also appears that hair with side parts is one of the trends this year. Which were your favourite looks of the night?
