Red Carpet Beauty – The Oscars 2008
Heidi Klum sparkles on Oscar night!
Heidi Klum’s stunning red carpet look was made even more beautiful with her bold smoky eyes and bronzed cheeks. We loved the silver shimmer shadow on her eyes that lit up her face and made her one of our favorite red carpet beauties.
To get Heidi’s look start with a shimmer shadow in silver and apply to the eyelid and into the crease making sure to blend the color into the inner corners of each eye as seen here. Take the same silver shimmer shadow and sweep under the eyes before adding your black eyeliner. Try NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Paris. Use the silver shimmer on the eyelid and contour the crease of eye with the matte gray shadow as seen here on Heidi.
Finish with a black gel liner and begin applying right above the inner corner of top eyelid extending the liner out beyond the lashes. For the best results use a thin and tapered eyeliner brush and tap along the lashline. Try Onyx Stay put Gel Eyeliner, $18 at bethbenderbeauty.com. Bring the gel eyeliner underneath each eye at the outer corners and blend into the lashline.
Finish with a fabulous black Mascara and some false eyelash clusters to complete Heidi’s dazzling eyes. Apply one coat of mascara before adding the lashes to create a platform that will make them easier to slide in. Try Diorshow Mascara in Black, $24 at Sephora and sephora.com. Try Ardell Lash Clusters for sexy peeper’s that will have heads spinning. Available at most drugstores and beauty supply stores.
Give your cheeks a beautiful bronzed glow with Soak up the Sun Bronzing Powder, $26 at beth bender beauty. A favorite backstage at the Oscar’s this year. Swirl the color on the apple of cheeks with a powder brush and blend along the cheekbones for a flawless application. To finish add a touch of bronzer to the bridge of nose and forehead.
Finish with a pale pink shimmer lipstick, or lip gloss to compliment your beautiful smoky eyes. Try Paris is Burning from beth bender beauty, a pink beige shimmer gloss or Laura Mercier’s Pink Dawn Lip Shimmer , a light nude pink $22 at Lauramercier.com.
You’re red carpet ready gorgeous!
