lupita2Lupita Nyong’o dazzled in pearl embellished Calvin Klein Collection dress at Sunday evening’s 2015 Oscar Awards red carpet. With such an elegant custom gown, it was only natural for Celebrity Makeup Artist Nick Barose to create an equally stunning beauty look.

While keeping the eyes soft and polished, Nick concentrated on enhancing her radiant skin and topping off the look with a stunning Old Hollywood deep red lip. The final look featured elements of classic Hollywood beauties while playing up Lupita’s best features.

Here’s how to get her glowing modern classic Hollywood look.

Well prepped skin is an essential step for this look. Nick began by blending Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate onto Lupita’s skin and Lancôme Genifique Eye Light Pearl Eye Illuminating Youth Activating Concentrate over the under eye area. To ensure a flawless base, he primed the skin with Lancôme La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer.

For a more precise and flawless finish, Nick corrected any imperfections along the skin with a blend of Lancôme Le Duo Stick in Suede and Lancôme Le Corrector Pro Concealer Kit in 550.

Once the skin was perfected, Nick moved onto the eyes. For a more prolonged wear, Nick prepped Lupita’s lids with Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyecolor Base in Sienne #5. Moving onto color, Nick created a subtle neutral look using Lancôme Color Design 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Gris Fumee and lined the both lash lines with Lancôme Artliner in Noir and Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir.

Nick began by moisturizing the lips with Kiehl’s Lip Balm. For that beautiful rich vintage color, Nick lined Lupita’s lips with Lancôme Le Lipstique Lip Coloring Stick in Sheer Chocolate and topped it off with a swipe of Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Aubergine Velvet.

Emma StoneWhether it was her beaded chartreuse Elie Saab gown or her soft coral beauty look, Emma Stone was certainly bringing some spring cheer to Sunday’s Oscars red carpet. Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin created a look that was built around a complementary coral hue that played on the soft green tone of Emma’s dress.

To get that soft coral flush along the cheeks, Rachel applied Chanel Powder Blush in Angelique to the apples of Emma’s cheeks and softly blended it outwards.

This look was all about light playful eyes. Using a blend of tones from the Chanel Limited Edition Lumières Facettes Quadra Eye Shadow, Emma’s eyes were subtly highlighted and shaped. Rachel then lined the eyes with Chanel Écriture de Chanel Eyeliner Pen in Brun. Finally, Emma’s eyes were beautifully framed by a generous coating Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara in Black on her lashes.

For that poppy coral lip, Rachel began by defining the lips with Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Rouge Candy. She then layered REVLON Ultra HD Lipstick in HD Tulip over the liner which gave the lips the perfect spring coral shade.

To get that ‘soft metallic shimmer,’ Sarah began by applying Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Tin to the lids and followed with Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Mist in the inner corners of the eyes.

Sarah proceeded by smudging Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar along the lash line and outer corners of the lids for a more accented touch. She set the cream shadow with Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Lido. Following with an added layer of drama, Gaga’s eyes were heavily lined with Shiseido Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black and blended upon application.

For the finishing bold touch, Sarah topped Gaga’s lashes with a couple of coats of Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume in Black.

With such a dramatic look, Sarah opted for a soft muted pout. She defined Gaga’s lips with Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil in Hazel and swiped the lips in a coat of Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Carnelian. A favorite of both Sarah’s and Gaga’s, the result was a soft lip with a satin finish.

Get The Look: Sienna Miller’s Fresh Golden Globes Awards Makeup

72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards - ArrivalsMuch like her radiant embellished gown, Sienna Miller seemed to be glowing from within at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards. While her perfectly tousled tresses paired well with you gown, it was her fresh beauty look that truly accented the glamorous elements of her full look.

Drawing from the boho-chic tones of her Miu Miu dress, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Charlotte Tilbury created a polished look that still remained fresh and effortless. Allowing the skin to be the focal point of the look helped Charlotte create an ethereal makeup look with hints of glamour.

Here’s how this makeup guru achieved this flawless look.

Prior to applying any cosmetics, Charlotte emphasized the need for perfectly prepped skin. Opting for a mask, Charlotte prepped Sienna’s skin with Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask (to launch March 2015). Once that was complete, Charlotte blended a moisturizing layer of her Magic Cream and followed with a light layer of Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow to ensure bright and hydrated skin.

Once a healthy canvas was achieved, Charlotte applied a mixture of Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation (6 Medium and 7 Medium) to skin. To brighten the under eye areas, Charlotte applied Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher Concealer (2 Fair) and chose a shade darker (3 medium) for areas along the rest of the skin.

To set the foundation, Charlotte opted for a light dusting of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder (1 Fair and 2 Medium) along the t-zone. Not only did this allow Sienna’s dewy complexion to shine through but also added to the longevity of the makeup.

To achieve that lustrous glowing look, Charlotte used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. She enhanced Sienna’s skin by subtly applying bronzer along her cheekbones, jaw line and temple. For added dimension, Charlotte then layered Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks in Ibiza atop the bronzer. Next, Charlotte achieved that dreamy radiance by sweeping Charlotte Tilbury Moonbeach highlighter along the top of the cheekbones. For a light flush of color, she chose Charlotte Tilbury Formentera on the apples of the cheeks.

Charlotte groomed Sienna’ brows and enhanced them with Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Grace K and Cara D.

Charlotte defined her eyes by lining the lash line with Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Powder Eye Pencil in Audrey and layering Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘n’ Kohl Liner in Barbarella Brown over that deeper intensity. For shadow, Charlotte used shades from Charlotte Tilbury The Luxury Palette in The Sophisticate. Using a blending brush, Charlotte blended the enhancer shade into the creases of Sienna’ eyes for added depth and followed with the pop shade at the inner corner and blended it along the upper lash line to the outer corners.

Charlotte heavily coated Sienna’s upper lashes in her favorite Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Mascara (Glossy Black) and lightly applied mascara to the lower lashes.

To ensure a smooth canvas, Charlotte applied Charlotte Tilbury Lip Love Lip Scrub to remove any makeup or dry skin and followed with a light coat of Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic Lip Balm.

Charlotte enhanced Sienna’s natural lip shape with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Iconic Nude. For a base shade, she applied Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Sexy Sienna and layered over a light swipe of K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Nude Kate.
