Get the Look: Marisa Tomei 2011 Oscars

CELEBRITY MAKE-UP ARTIST MATTHEW VANLEEUWEN
CREATED PRESENTER MARISA TOMEI’S RED CARPET LOOK
FOR THE 83rd ANNUAL OSCAR AWARDS
USING EXCLUSIVELY ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS PRODUCT

For Marisa Tomei’s gorgeous red carpet look, makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen worked exclusively with Anastasia Beverly Hills product.

Matthew took the Anastasia Highlighting Crème Duo in St Tropezdipped into the crème blush and applied it in gentle back and forth sweeps across Marisa’s smiling cheeks. (Pro tip: smiling makes the job mistake proof, because it helps the blush go where it’s supposed to). Using the same brush, Matthew dipped into the highlighting crème and brushed the tops of the lips and nose with the illuminating fluid. The skin was “so translucent and smooth looking!”

Turning to brows, Matthew filled and shaped Marisa’s with Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette  and created a few feathery strokes in the brow and to define the bottom edge of the brow. Matthew then took Anastasia Brow Duality Penc and placed a bit of the matte highlighter just at the arch of the brow. The total effect is ultra defined and crisp brows that perfectly frame the face.

Moving to the eyes, Matthew took Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette 1  and dusted the soft pink sorbet shadow all over the eye to brighten and tone the skin. Matthew raved that “the shadow is so smoothing and imparts a modern velvety texture.” Then Matthew took Illumin8 palette 3  and blended the mauve shade into the crease “to create the perfect shade of orchid.” Next, Matthew lined the eye with a thin line of black pencil and smudged the sparkly blue/black shadow from Illumin8 palette #3 into the lashline to create a softer, smokey eyeline.

The eye makeup was finished by curling the lashes and applying two coats of Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara, which Matthew says “has reached cult status with many of my clients…it’s incredible.”

Finally to finish Marisa’s stunning look, Matthew applied Anastasia Hydrafull Lip Gloss in Sangria , a gorgeous soft amethyst berry shade.

Oscar Best Picture inspired cocktails!

This year, there was no shortage of amazing films for the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to choose from for their nominations. Among those selected, few are getting as much buzz as The King’s Speech, The Social Network, The Fighter and Black Swan. These films are already winners this awards season and are sure to pick up more trophies at the Oscars February 27th. In celebration of this year’s Academy Awards BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, BENEDICTINE Liqueur, Dewar’s and Cointreau have teamed up to put together a few signature cocktails inspired by this year’s hottest films– also Dewar’s and Bombay Sapphire have been sponsoring a lot of the dinners and lunches for these stars and films leading up to the Oscars so they have definitely been sipped by all the A-listers. They’re perfect for serving during your Oscar viewing party!

The King’s Speech

Raise your glass to Colin Firth’s Golden Globe and SAG victories with this decidedly British cocktail. Made with Earl Grey tea and Bombay Sapphire, the quintessential London Dry Gin, this cocktail is worthy of a King.

Bombay Sapphire Royal Tea

2 oz. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin

1 oz. Earl Grey Tea Infused Simple Syrup

1 oz. Fresh lemon

1 oz. Egg white

¾ oz. Fresh lemon juice

½ Rock Candy

2 Dashes orange bitters

Topped with a Bitter Orange Espuma*

Combine gin, tea infused simple syrup and lemon juice in a shaker over ice, shake vigorously. Double strain into a tea cup. Beat espuma mix until thick and foamy, spoon into tea cup, on top of Sapphire mixture. Put a pinch of tea leaves in center, garnish with a stick of orange bitters rock candy on the side of the tea saucer.

The Social Network

Created by Boston mixologist Scott Marshall of Drink, this coffee-infused Benedictine cocktail is the perfect drink to fuel those long nights spent hacking into the Harvard computer network.

The All-Nighter

2 ½ oz. Rye Whiskey

½ oz. Benedictine Liqueur

Muddled fresh coffee beans

Build in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and stir. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

The Fighter

Toast to two Knock-out performances from Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg, in this year’s The Fighter with a Dewar’s 12 cocktail that packs a punch, yet evokes passion. Watch as the film dukes it out for Oscar gold.

Blood & Sand

2 oz Dewar’s 12 Blended Scotch Whiskey

1 oz cherry liqueur

1 oz red (sweet) vermouth

1 oz fresh squeezed orange juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Black Swan- My personal favorite!

In one of the best performances of the year, toast Natalie Portman’s startling character portrayal in this psychological thriller. Follow her swirl of brilliance and insanity from White Swan to Black Swan, while drinking cocktails to match. Begin with the White Lady in its classic and purest form and end with the dark and deliciously menacing Cointreau Noir in Black Ice.

The White Lady

1 oz. Cointreau
2 oz. Gin
3/4 oz. Lemon juice
Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Black Ice

3 oz. Cointreau Noir

Ice cubes

Pour over ice and enjoy
