The 83rd Academy Awards show was a snooze, but the Red Carpet was on fire with the fashion and beauty. Got a favorite celebrity look? Here’s how to recreate some of the best of the night. Cate BlanchettInspiration: Celeb makeup artist Robin Fredriksz used icy tones to complement Cate’s lavender Givenchy Couture gown that proved to be a work of art. Makeup: First, Cate used SK-II’s mask, under eye pads (one of my must haves) and moisturizer to hydrate and prep her skin. For makeup, Robin applied all Lancome products. She started with Teint Miracle Lit-from-Within Foundation. To create a defined yet soft smoky eye, she covered the entire lid with Color Design Eye Shadow in Latte and swiped Color Design Eye Shadow in Volanco in the crease. Then, she used Color Design Eye Shadow in Ciel du Soir as a liner, applying it along the upper and lower lash lines. After a few coats of mascara Robin finished the look by giving Cate a pretty, light lip with Color Design Lipcolor in Pale Lip.Mandy MooreInspiration: “We wanted her makeup to have a strong pop,” said celeb makeup artist Kayleen McAdams about Mandy’s red carpet lips. “I was so inspired by all the coral and orange lips on the runway for spring so I did a tangerine version on the lips and cheeks.” Makeup: Mandy wore all Nars makeup. Kayleen started with Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer, which is new for spring, to ensure Mandy’s makeup would last the evening and then applied Sheer Matte Foundation. It sounds cliché, but the star’s skin was glowing. That’s in thanks to another new product launching this spring — Copacabana Illuminator. For the eyes, Kayleen applied Corfu Cream Eyeshadow and Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow and finished by coating lashes with a volumizing mascara. For me, the highlight of Mandy’s makeup was her incredible tangerine lip — this season’s hottest lip color. She is a shining example of how to successfully rock this trend. To get this lip look, swipe on Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. Natalie PortmanInspiration: The strategy behind Oscar winner Natalie Portman’s makeup was as simple and effortless as she looked. “I was inspired by her dress so I went with more purple tones,” said makeup artist Eileen Kastner-Delago.Makeup: Decked in Dior makeup, Natalie had flawless looking skin. She wore a combo of foundations (Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Foundation #020 and #030) as well as Diorskin Nude Hydrating Concealer #002. To play up her eyes and off her plum dress, Eileen applied a mix of shadows: Dior 1-Colour Eyeshadow in #546 Gold Touch, Dior 2-Colour Eyeshadow in Purple Look #885 and Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Extase Pinks #804. To create Natalie’s fluttery, long lashes, Eileen doubled up on mascaras, swiping on Diorshow Waterproof Mascara in Black and Diorshow Iconic Mascara in Navy Blue. Next, her cheeks were dusted with DiorBlush in Peechy Keen #553. To finish the look, Natalie had a glossy, sexy lip created with Dior Addict Lipstick #623 Infamous Pink and topped with Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Apricot Cloche #436.
