Oscar Beauties Wearing CoverGirl!

We’re having SO MUCH FUN!

And you know what else is fun? That some of tonight’s hottest beauties are wearing affordable yet awesome CoverGirl!

Paula Patton

Paula Patton’s Oscar beauty look was created by Mylah Morales,  who started by applying Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil to clean up her skin and create an ideal canvas for foundation application. Next I applied Giorgio Armani Foundation and set the foundation with a sheer layer of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder followed by COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer  for a gorgeous, bronze glow.

To accentuate and enhance Paula’s stunning orange dress, Mylah focused on gold and brown shades for her eyes, and applied gold powder shadow in the corners of her eyes followed by a layer of COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire over her lid for a gorgeous red carpet eye look. Her eyes were completed with a few swipes of COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara for dramatic, ultra-long lashes. For Paula’s lips, I kept them pretty natural and used a peachy shade of gloss that matched her natural lipcolor. To complete Paula’s overall look, Mylah applied NARS Blush in Taj Mahal followed by Shu Uemura Facial Hydration Mist to lock-in Paula’s makeup and help it last her through the night.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Her Oscar beauty look was created by celebrity makeup artist, Molly R. Stern. Her Dries Van Noten gown is a swirl of bright colors that fades into white. For her makeup, Molly wanted to bring out the color of her eyes with some depth while keeping with the brightness of her overall style.

“We started off the look by refreshing the skin with Jurlique Rose Water spray. Then I prepped the skin with Shu Uemura red:juvenus vitalizing concentrate and lightly moisturized with La Mer moisturizing lotion.”

For a flawless complexion Molly primed Maggie’s skin with COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer (out in July!!). Then she lightly applied some Chantecaille future skin foundation in the color ‘cream’ only where she needed it. Then lastly, she dusted La Mer powder foundation in ‘Ivory’ to set the skin for the big night.

For her amber peachy cheeks, Molly used COVERGIRL and Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Rich Cinnamon and dusted some NARS ‘dolce vita’ blush on the apples. For Maggie’s eyes of layered copper smoke, Molly based her eye with COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire. Next, she deepened her lid with NARS soft touch shadow pencil ‘skorpios’. Then she blended into the crease Shu Uemura pressed eye shadow ‘p brown 810’ and lastly lightly dusted Shu Uemura pressed eyeshadow in ‘n me brown 860’ all over the lid for a golden finish.

What do you all think of htese looks?
