The countdown is on! The Academy Awards are just six days away and to kick off GLAM SLAM’s Oscar Week, we look at makeup for Sunday’s red carpet.
L’Oreal Paris Consulting Makeup Artist Collier Strong, who has worked with Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Eva Longoria Parker, shares his picks (and products) for Oscar Beauty.
“It’s all about a beautiful bold lip! Whether it’s a warm or cool crimson, a bold, opaque, red lip has a very sexy yet romantic feel. The eyes are as glamorous or neutral as your gown and accessories dictate. Can’t go wrong with the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in British Red.”
“No matter the lip, eyes will be finished with long, beautiful glossy black lashes. I love using the L’Oreal Paris Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara & Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum to achieve this look.”
“Whether it’s a wash of color or a bold, dark statement, using color on the eyes looks gorgeous. A beautiful violet, blue or dark purple. Think of watercolors and softness… that’s what makes this look work!”
“When you see a deep smokey eye on someone like Penelope Cruz, lips will be gorgeous with pale nude shimmery glosses. The L’Oreal Paris Bare Naturale Gentle Mineral-Enriched Eyeliner in Onyx is perfect for dark smudged eyes. If black feels too daring, try Slate or Cocoa.”
