Red Carpet Beauty – The Oscars 2008
Jennifer Garner’s sexy smoky eyes
There was no shortage of sexy smoky eyes, alluring cat eyes, pale pink shimmer lips and red lips at this years Oscars. Our favorite beauties did not disappoint us as they made their way down the red carpet. We were loving all of the make up and hair and especially the different variations on the smoky eye and cat eye. Starting with Jennifer Garner who looked lovely in a black strapless gown, gorgeous diamonds and smoky eyes that sparkled almost as much as her accessories.
Her make up was beautiful and we loved her smoky eyes done in a shimmery bronze, with a strong gel eyeliner in Black. To get Jennifer’s look start by sweeping a bronze cream shadow over the eyelids and into the creases blending out towards your temples. Try Bronze Shimmer Cream Shadow, $18 at bethbenderbeauty.com.
Next line the outer half of the upper eyelids with Onyx Stay Put Gel Eyeliner. Making it thicker as you line towards the outer part of eye as seen here on Jennifer. Smudge the line with a Q-tip or brush and and extend the line slightly up and out beyond your lashes. You can also add a touch of gel liner in Onyx in between you bottom lashes using a thin a tapered brush. Keep the line soft and smudge with a Q-tip to avoid a heavy line.
To make your red carpet look even more eye popping add a few false lash clusters to the outer ends of each upper lashline. Our favorite’s are the Andrea or Ardell Lash clusters and the must have glue if you can find it is the Sherani Eyelash Adhesive. The best we’ve ever tried.
