Make-up Artist Angela Levin for Chanel says: "Nicole Kidman's Oscar look was glamorous Hollywood with a Brigitte Bardot twist. She looked sexy and playful! Beautiful glowing pale lips, rosy cheeks, and glamour were my inspiration, concentrating on her beautiful eyes and gorgeous skin."
Get Nicole's look:
1. To prepare the skin, use CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream all over the face and neck, as well as on the shoulders and décolleté. As a base use CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup in Ivoire.
2. For the eyes, use the dark shade from the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Bleu-Tendre feathering the shadow inward, creating a dark outer corner of the eye, for a bit of a 60s look. Then use the taupe shade in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Stupendous in the inner corner of the eye. From the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Winter Nights, I use the medium, silvery taupe shade and sweep it on all over the eye using a round motion, blending all the shades together.
3. For the eyebrows use the CHANEL Brow Definer in Blond Clair, and two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir, on both top and bottom lashes. Underneath the eye use a Sephora Nano Eye Pencil in Silver Green.
4. For the lips we chose CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Magnolia. Use the same shade of lip colour on the cheeks, dabbing the shade on the apples of the cheeks with your finger - one of my favorite red carpet beauty tricks!
