Get the look: 2010 Oscars beauty - page 3
The Oscars is first and foremost about celebrating the top-notch talent in the film industry – but come time for the red carpet, our favourite A-listers are judged on so much more than their performances on screen…
The glamorous gowns are often the stars of the show, but here at beautyheaven it’s the hair and make-up looks that make us ooh and ahh with wide eyes. We’re here to help you steal the looks of your favourite stars, so you can add them to your very own repertoire this season.
Old Hollywood with a twist: Charlize Theron
Never one to blend in to the crowd, this South African beauty doesn’t require oodles of feathers and crazy get-ups to attract attention. Her breath-taking baby blues are an easy focal point for her face, making the rest of her make-up artist’s work almost too easy.
To get the look, start with a light dusting of a mineral foundation that will allow your skin to breathe. Inika Mineral Cosmetics Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation is our pick as it helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while regenerating the skin. To ensure a rosy glow like Theron’s, you can’t go past a sweep of Bobbi Brown Rose Shimmer Brick Compact – it’s your one-way ticket to utter illumination.
To frame your peepers, a few lashings of a lengthening and separating mascara such as Clinique High Impact Mascara In Black, gets our vote. Top off this ‘old Hollywood’ look with a perfectly coloured lip. Hint: you can’t go wrong with a touch of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump Perfect Lipstick in Perfect Rose.
