It's been a short while since the Oscars but I've had this post planned for ages and thought it would be a shame to disregard it. This brings me onto my apology; sorry that I have disappeared off the blogosphere for over a week, I've been quite busy with uni work but the Easter holidays are coming up so I've got lots of great posts planned (and maybe even a few videos!).
I always love looking at the Oscars' beauty trends for looks to replicate on nights out. This year I loved Jessica Chastain's simple, elegant and timeless hair and make-up, which was inspired by the 40's and old Hollywood. Here is my take on the look.
L'Oreal primer), and then your chosen foundation and powder. I'm using Clinique Stay Matte foundation and my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder. Then dust an icy/shimmering white shade all over your eyelids. I'm using the white shade from my Accessorize palette. Jessica's eyes had a slight golden shade on the inner corners. Use your smallest finger to apply this, gently dabbing in the inner corners, then blend. I used the gold shade from my Accessorize palette.
Step Two: Apply black gel or liquid liner very close to your top lash line. Build up definition around you longer lashes, like Jessica's eye make-up. I'm using Maybelline gel eyeliner in 'Intense Black'.
Eyelure Naturalites in '101' for this look. However to create this look I used a mascara instead. Clinique High Intense Extreme Volume Mascara is a wonder. I built up the mascara in layers using a lash comb to get out excess clumps.
Benefit High Beam.
Benefit Brow Zings wax. Them groom with with a brow brush.
Babyliss Pro Curl 210 curling tong which has a smaller barrel as my hair is shorter than Jessica's so the the curls will be tighter but to recreate the look fully I recommend Babyliss Glamour Waves curling tong. Take a small section of hair and place the end of the section between the clamps before winding the tong upwards in a spiral motion. Hold for ten-twelve seconds and then release the section of hair.
