23 Feb Oscars: Get The Look
Anna Kendrick’s Smoldering Gaze
Celebrity Makeup Artist, Vanessa Scali for Elizabeth Arden, “Anna’s Thakoon Oscar gown is a breath of fresh air. The soft coral is amazing against her alabaster skin. With that in mind, I wanted to create a look that had presence but wasn’t overpowering and wouldn’t compete with the dress. The focus is definitely on the sultry eye, but paired with nude, juicy skin, and a matte bitten lip, she looks fresh and effortless.“
Tips and Products Used Included: For her smoky eye look, Vanessa used Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Smolder from the lash line to the crease and under the lower lashes as well. Blended it into the skin for a soft edge. Used Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Glisten on the brow bone and a touch in the center of the eyelid. To complete the look for the eyes, she used Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner in Black Violet on the top lash line, on the outer corners of the lower lashes and on the water line. Followed by Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Gel Eye Liner in Deep Sea Pearl smudged into the lash line; Finished with Elizabeth Arden Moisturizing Lipstick Matte in Pink Pucker as a textural contrast to her dewy skin.
Emma Stone’s Coral Pout
Inspired by Emma’s chartreuse beaded Elie Saab gown, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Rachel Goodwin, created a vision of spring with a bold coral lip offset by a simple eye to complement the distinctive color of her dress. “The look I designed was a complete response to the color of her dress, which is an amazing green. I really wanted to let the color speak, but with a fun, unexpected twist, so I chose a beautiful, peachy-coral lip to complement it. Her look is soft and ethereal, with the total feeling of spring.”
Jenna Dewan Tatum’s Holographic Nails
Manicurist Kait Mosh created a custom color for Jenna using two shades of Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish. For the base Kait applied Camera Shy, a nude pink shade, and then added a coat of Make Up Time for a hint of iridescence.

Diane Kruger’s 1920’s Inspired Cascading Bangs
Celebrity Hairstylist Adir Abergel for Moroccanoil created Diane’s look for the Vanity Fair Oscar Part last night and said, “I was inspired by Dianne’s amazing outfit. I loved the flowey top and I wanted to create the same movement with the hair.”
Tips and Products Used Included: Abergal started by parting her hair to a deep side part and applying Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse from root to tip. Then rough-dried the hair with his hands until it was 100% dry. Next Abergal took small sections of hair and curled them with a ½” barrel curling iron all over the head until all of the hair was completely curled. Then sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray to set the hair, brushed hair smooth with Moroccanoil’s Boar Bristle Classic Brush and back-combed for height at the crown. Pulled hair tight to one side and secured with ponytail. Let the other side cascade down for a 1920’s wave. Then finished the look by smoothing the hair with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream and then locked in the style with Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Luminous Glow
Celebrity Makeup Artist, Monika Blunder, said her inspiration for Rosie’s look at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party came from, “The dress Rosie wore was a beautiful dark green with sequins, mermaid-like, very structured and modern. I wanted the makeup to be soft and luminous, with the focus on beautiful skin. I created an edgy look but one that wasn’t overpowering, to keep the focus on the dress.”
