Oscar 2017: Makeup Breakdowns

I'll have to admit I didn't watch the Oscars last night. Being a mom to a toddler sometimes means I fall asleep a little too early than I'd like. Hence, my night last night ended at 8:30 pm. However, that's why social media is so amazing I got to catch up with all the red carpet looks at my fingertips.
Oscar winner, Ginnifer Goodwin wore a red lace gown paired with a focus on the eyes. Strong eyebrow defined brows and a smokey eye. Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh, created this look using LORAC Cosmetics.

Love a red lip on the red carpet! As Nicole Kidman is a Neutrogena Ambassador it was only natural that she use Neutrogena products. Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, wanted the focus to be the lips with just a bit of shimmer on the lids. Here Lobell breaks down the details:

To get Nicole’s looks for the Oscars, I started with prepping the skin which is key for maintaining fresh pretty make up for the long stretch of the red carpet, the show itself and the after parties. I used NEUTROGENA® Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream to help hold the makeup in place and give a plumped boosted hydrated look to her skin, along with NEUTROGENA®HYDRO BOOST Gel-Cream Eye to keep a radiant look around the eyes. I then applied NEUTROGENA® HYDRO BOOST Hydrating Serum for added insurance to keep her looking fresh all night. Next, I applied NEUTROGENA® HYDRO BOOST Hydrating Tint in Classic Ivory* on her face and neck for lightweight dewy coverage. I applied NEUTROGENA® HYDRO BOOST Hydrating Concealer* under the eyes and on the lids to neutralize in place of a shadow primer. I then set the make up with a light dusting of pressed powder.


I used metallic gold shadow on her lids with a slight russet shade in the crease. To create, use NEUTROGENA® Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-In Primer in Classic Nude and Mink Brown*. I wanted her eyes to just look slightly shimmery and did lots of lashes. I applied a couple individuals to the other corner and added a couple coats of NEUTROGENA® Healthy Volume Mascara* to both the top and bottom lashes. I left her brows natural, brushing them up and setting them lightly with a clear brow gel.


I applied rose pink blush with NEUTROGENA® Healthy Skin Blush in Rosy* to the apples of her cheeks to add to the softness to the look.


I finished the look off by prepping the lips with NEUTROGENA® HYDRO BOOST Hydrating Lip Treatment* and then used a creamy red lipstick (Giorgio Armani #402) with a dab of NEUTROGENA® HYDRO BOOST Hydrating Lip Shine in Deep Cherry* to the bottom lip.

*Please note, NEUTROGENA® Cosmetics are not currently available for purchase in Canada.
