Makeup Tips You Can Use From The Oscar Red Carpet

Even though Sunday’s Oscars are over, people are still buzzing about all of the good looking females that roamed the red carpet!  Here are some of my favorite makeup looks and what we can all learn from them…

Let Statement Lips Speak For Themselves.

If you’re going to wear a bright bold lip color, keep the rest of your makeup (eyes + cheeks) as neutral and low key as possible.  Let the lip color be front and center.  For a tangerine lipstick like Solange, try this one, and for a cherry red like Rose, try this one.
False Lashes Create Immediate Glamour

If you are terrible at applying eye shadow and shading, then the best way to highlight your peepers 

is to apply a strip of false lashes (or probably 2 in Adele’s case).  
Bam, you immediately look glamorous.  Here are some of my fave lashes.
Every Eye Color Looks Sexier Smokey

It’s a no fail way to make your makeup look sexier – smoke out the eyes!  Take a dark eyeliner, 
whether it be brown, black, navy, charcoal, whatever! just line the entire eye and
 add a matching shadow over it and blend outward.  Add 2-3 coats of mascara on top and bottom too.
Here’s a recent smokey eye created by moi.
If You’ve Got Naturally Flawless Skin, Let It Shine!

Halle and Charlize have obviously really good skin, and they showcase it by not distracting 
your eye from it with lots of colorful shadows and dark cheeks or lips.  
If you’ve got skin this good, use a little highlighter on your cheekbones (like I used in this post here), keep the lips shiny and sheer, and call it a day.
