Get The Look: Leslie Mann’s 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Look

leslie mann oscars 2014

Love her, She looks gorgeous! Leslie’s skin looks flawless thanks in part to Radical Skincare’s Instant Revitalizing Mask.

Hitting the red carpet for the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar party, Leslie Mann was a radiant beauty from head to toe. “I wanted to give Leslie’s makeup a fresh, young look, with an emphasis on pink tones, to give a flattering counter balance to her gorgeous chartreuse gown”, said makeup artist Elaine Offers.

Elaine began by prepping Leslie’s skin with Radical Skincare’s Instant Revitalizing Mask ($65, Sephora) to invigorate and hydrate. The soothing formula delivers a dose of vitamins and energy to the skin, which when taken off, gives you that “just-left-the-gym” glow. “I followed with a few drops of Radical Skincare’s Youth Infusion Serum, to lock in that moisture and firm skin,” said Offers.

Elaine followed with “a touch” of Cle De Peau’s Refining Fluid Foundation in I10, and Dior Beauty’s Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen in 001 Rosy Glow to highlight and perfect.

Leslie’s cheeks were then lightly blushed with Tom Ford’s Frantic Pink, and her eyes were softly shaded with the gold tones in Tom Ford’s eyeshadow palette in 01 golden Mink, and the rosy tones in 12 Seductive Rose palette.

“Her lower lash line was enhanced with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Pencil in Asphyxia, an iridescent lavender that really flattered her green eyes,” said Elaine. “We finished the look off with Kevyn Aucoin’s The Essential Mascara in Rich Black and Tom Ford’s Lip Color Sheer in 08 Incorrigible, for that perfect pink pop.”

Makeup artist Monika Blunder created an “effortless, Parisian- chic” look for actress and model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Blunder was inspired by the youthfulness and glamour of Huntington-Whiteley’s dress, and kept her makeup looking “fresh.”

FLAWLESS FACE:

  • First Blunder prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer, ($33).
  • Then, using her fingers, she applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (launching Fall 2014) all over her face.
  • She used Laura Mercier Camouflage Powder Brush, ($28) to apply Laura Mercier Seecret Camouflage, ($33) – covering any of her skin’s imperfections.
  • Blunder blended Laura Mercier Secret Concealer #2, ($23) under Huntington-Whiteley’s eyes with a Laura Mercier Finishing Eye Brush, ($32).
  • To ensure her makeup stayed in place all night, she applied Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent, ($35).
  • Using Laura Mercier Bronzer Brush, ($45) she applied Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder #3, ($36).
  • Next, she applied Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic, ($40) to add a beautiful glow to her skin.

  • Next, using the Laura Mercier All Over Eye Colour Brush, ($30), she applied Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Baroque, ($23) onto her eyelids.
  • She added definition to her eyes using Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait, ($23).
  • Then she lined her Huntington-Whiteley’s eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Stormy Grey, ($20) in an outward motion to create a cat eye. She used the Laura Mercier Smudge Brush, ($24) to soften the line.
  • To intensify the smoky-eye effect, Blunder applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa, ($26) with the Laura Mercier Pony Tail Brush, ($29).
  • Using a clean Laura Mercier Pony Tail Brush, ($29), she applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($24) on the inner corner of her eye and eyelid.

  • After curling Huntington-Whiteley’s eyelashes with an eyelash curler, she applied generous coats of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara, ($24).
  • Finally, she groomed her brows using the Laura Mercier Brow Grooming Brush, ($10) and added extra definition using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde, ($22).

  • Blunder lined Huntington-Whiteley’s lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Baby Lips, ($22) and then applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Royal Orchid, ($27) to create the bold pout.

Amy Adams 86th Annual Academy Awards
Nominee, Actress in a Leading Role, American Hustle

Makeup by Stephen Sollitto

Celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a sophisticated makeup look for Amy Adams, who is nominated for “Actress in a Leading Role” for her portrayal of Sydney Prosser in “American Hustle.” He stated, “She wore a stunning sapphire blue Gucci gown, modern and clean. Obviously, I am inspired by this color and simply wanted the makeup to be just as sophisticated.” Below, he breaks down the steps he took to create her flawless red carpet look.

SKINCARE PREP

Sollitto prepared Adams’ skin using RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream ($195). He stated, “I always moisturize with this product. This is the line I use on myself every day. Prepping the skin is just as important as the makeup you use.”

FOUNDATION

  • Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (NEW – Coming Fall 2014) to create a flawless complexion. He noted, “This foundation is simple to apply with a wet sponge or your fingers. It’s long wear, oil free and lightweight. In the end it gives you a matte finish so you don’t have to dust your face with loose powder, it’s built in.”

EYES

  • Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta ($24) to Adams’ lids and contrasted the look by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat ($24) under the star’s bottom lashes.
  • To keep Adam’s eyes looking ”bright,” Sollitto dotted his “ideal champagne shade,” Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sugar Frost ($26) to the inner corners of Adams’ eyes.
  • He applied Nars Eye Paint Liner in Tatar ($25) along the star’s upper lash line to make them “pop.”
  • To finish, he applied Dior Black Out Mascara ($25) to Adams’ lashes.

CHEEKS

  • Sollitto applied the perfect “spring-like blush,” Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color in Ravish ($56) to create a look “that was flush with color.”

LIPS

  • Sollitto noted that he wanted to achieve a lip look that was “pretty, a little bit rosy and glossy.” He used Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Cozy ($25) which he described as “having the perfect punch I was looking for.” He then layered Tom Ford Beauty Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush ($45) over it “for a bit of glamour to match the day.”
