The last time I watched the Oscars I was in awe of all the glowy faces and perfect cat eyes being spotted on the red carpet. The stars of Hollywood may have the benefit of having a professional make up artist and hairstylist at their disposal for looking glam, but this doesn’t mean we can’t achieve a fun Oscar-esque look of our own! For more DIYs, head on over to my blog In Honor of Design!
I brought in the help of my friend Brielle Brenner, makeup artist here in Atlanta, GA to show us some easy tips for creating our own Oscar inspired eye make – up!
Urban Decay Priming Potion (original)
Alternative : NYX High Definition Eye Shadow Base
MAC “Carbon” (black) Eyeshadow
MAC “Woodwinked” (brown) Eyeshadow
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Kohl Liner in “Black” $5
Mascara of choice (We used Benefit)
Tools: Small Eyeshadow brush and blending brush
Optional : False Lashes (like Ardell Demi Wispies $5)
Tip : be careful not to bring the blended shadow all the way up to the brow bone, as this will create a “muddy” effect . Instead followup with your clean blending brush to and some foundation powder to “clean up” the brown bone and inner tear duct
Let us know if you give it a whirl! We would love to see your results!
