“When I spoke to Jen before the Oscars, we decided we wanted to create a look that exuded modern glamour. She had just returned from vacation, and she had that relaxed, glowing feeling, which we wanted to display on the red carpet. She is the quintessential California glamour girl, and she was radiant as always on Oscar night.”
Angela prepped Jennifer’s skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Boost Cream. She then used a foundation brush to apply CHANEL Lift Lumiere Firming and Smoothing Fluid Makeup in Beige all over the face. Under Jennifer’s eyes, Angela applied CHANEL Lift Lumiere Smooth and Rejuvinating Eye Contour in Beige Lumiere. Instead of a traditional blush, Angela dabbed a bit of CHANEL Hydrabase Lipstick in Coco Red on the apples of Jennifer’s cheeks. She then applied a bit of CHANEL Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed around the tops of her cheekbones, closer to the eye, for a bit of shimmer. Jennifer’s eyes were a combination of LORAC eye shadows in Jade, Black, and Serenity, and a Tina Earnshaw shadow in Aubergine. Her lashes looked extra glamorous thanks to CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black. On Jennifer’s lips, Angela used CHANEL Aqualumiere Lipshine in Panarea, available in April. To complete the look, she dusted Soleil Tan de CHANEL Bronzer on Jennifer’s skin, an exclusive creation product from CHANEL also launching in April.
NICOLE KIDMAN / Makeup Artist Angela Levin
“When I asked Nicole what we wanted to do for the Oscars, she told me she just wanted to look beautiful! So I decided to go for basic, beautiful makeup that shows who she is – an unbelievable beauty, timeless and glamorous. Her look was pure and gorgeous, just as it should be for the 81st Academy Awards.”
Angela prepped Nicole’s skin with he favorite skin care product, CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Boost Cream. On her eyes, she used the sultry shades from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Reflets d’Ombre. Several coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black were applied to create a glamorous, modern eye. She applied CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Rose on Nicole’s cheekbones. For an added flawless effect, Angela used CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Translucent 1 all over Nicole’s face. To create a sophisticated, glossy wine coloured lip, she applied CHANEL Aqualumiere Gloss in Bubble Plum.
NATALIE PORTMAN / Makeup Artist Jeanine Lobell
“My inspiration for Natalie on Oscar night was her dress… The colour was a fantastic orchid, and being Rodarte, I wanted to do cool punk rock sexy fairy make up.”
Jeanine was going for a smoky eye, and used CHANEL Silky Eye Shadow Duo in Orient Express. She used the pale pink as a base and the dark purple smoked around the eye on the lid and smudged in lower lash line. She added CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir inside the eye, and lots of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black for thick sexy lashes. She used CHANEL Perfect Brows in Brun, using the two colours to make a strong brow, but keeping it soft. Jeanine then used CHANEL Powder Blush in Narcisse, a flattering, bright pink shade, high on the cheek bones. She then added CHANEL Glossimer in Galactic for a more pale lavender lip. Finally, for a sexy, bronze sheen, Jeanine applied CHANEL Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed on Natalie’s arms, shoulders, and décolleté.
DIANE LANE / Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin
“The first thing I noticed when I saw Diane was her va va voom black dress! I wanted her makeup to be super sexy and stong, like she is. Because it was the Oscars, I focused on bumping up the eyes with lots of mascara and lashes, and sent her down the carpet glowing and gorgeous.”
Rachel opened up Diane’s eyes with browns and taupes from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Demure. She created a sultry look with soft browns in the crease and a soft ivory on the lids up to the brow bone. The eyes were lined with an Elizabeth Arden smoky eye pencil, and several coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black gave her a dramatic, seductive look. To give Diane’s skin a dewy, glowing look, Rachel applied CHANEL Teint Innocence Naturally Luminous Fluid Makeup mixed with a bit of Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer. On the contours of the cheeks, she applied a peach cream blush from Jouer. Finally, to complete the strong, sexy look, Rachel gave Diane a bold orangey red lip with CHANEL Hydrabase Lipstick in Fuego.
