Red Carpet Beauty – The Oscars 2008
Marion Cotillard strikes a pose
This was one of my favorite looks for hair, make up and wardrobe. Marion looked absolutely stunning in this Jean Paul Gaultier gown. She stood out amongst many of the starlets that night with her gorgeous cat eyes and cascades of sexy loose curls that framed her beautiful face.
To get Marion’s cat eyes start by adding some color to the eyelids first using a silver shimmer shadow. Try Vincent Longo’s Eye Shimmer Souffle in Pavlova, $24 at vincentlongo.com. It’s crease free and stays true for hours, perfect for red carpet beauty. For perfect cat eyes that will have everyone purring, try the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil Kit from beth bender beauty. Each kit comes with a cat eye stencil and a smoky eye stencil. Follow the instructions included and create sexy cat eyes as seen here on Marion.
Give your lashes two coats of mascara focusing on the outer lashes and making sure to coat the top of lashes too for extra length and volume. Try LashBlast mascara in black from CoverGirl.
Give the cheeks a touch of color in a light berry hue and apply with a brush swirling the color around the apple of cheeks before blending up and into the hairline. Try Daisy powder blush, $26 from beth bender beauty.
Complete the look with a berry-red lip color. Try Vincent Longo’s Velvet Riche lip color in Rain Dance, $23 at vincentlongo.com. For fuller looking lips apply a lip pencil first and blend the liner into the lips. add a touch of gloss to the center of lips for extra pout appeal.
