Celebrity Makeup: Looks you can do yourself!

The amazing thing about Awards shows is that they showcase a lot of interesting and creative ideas in Fashion as well as Makeup.  There is so much diversity in the various celebs that walk the red carpet, that there is always something that appeals to everyone.

I loved that for the 2014 Award show season, the looks were very soft, effortless and romantic! I also like the fact that these are looks that can be easily recreated at home. Check out my favourite Oscar 2014 Makeup looks below:

Naomi Watts | Bold Lips
The looks is soft, glowing and fresh with a pop of colour on the lips.  The glowing skin paired with a bold lip against the back drop of her gorgeous dress is perfection.  

Skin:  Use a foundation with a highlighter built in or a highlighting powder on top.
Eyes: Soft Brown on the crease with vanilla on the lids. Finish with 2 coats of mascara.
Cheeks: Soft Pink blush blended towards the temple and hairline.
Lips: Magenta shade in a moisturizing formula. Be sure to blot :)

Kate Hudson | Hollywood Smoke Show
Her look is all about sexy glamour!  The classic smokey eyes with a soft pink/nude lip with contoured cheeks works beautifully with her hair and gown.  

Skin:  Use a matte foundation and set with Loose powder.
Eyes: Soft Pink shade on the lids, soft grey on the crease and matte black in the corner.
Cheeks: Coral blush paired with Bronzer to help contour and brighten.
Lips: Neutral/Pink toned lipstick and finish with a light reflecting gloss on top.

Lupita Nyong'o | Fresh & Glowing
She looked flawless on the red carpets, especially at the Oscars, with her princess inspired dress and to her glowing and fresh makeup look.

Skin:  Use a foundation and set with a shimmering highlighting powder for extra glow.
Eyes: Sheer light blue, gently blended and swept onto the lids and into the crease.
Cheeks: Peachy/Coral shade blended out on the apples of the cheeks.
Lips: Coral/Pink lipstick with a matching gloss on top to make the finish last.

Such versatile and beautiful looks that will work on all skin tones.  Have fun with experimenting with your makeup looks for any of your special events!  Take inspiration from everything you see and you will find something that will work for you!
