Giorgio Armani Beauty’s TIM QUINN on Oscar Beauty!
Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Celebrity Makeup Artist and National Artistic Director, Tim Quinn, had the stars dazzling throughout Oscar weekend – in particular Kerry Washington and Uma Thurman.
Tim Quinn kicked off Oscar weekend by creating a fresh and youthful look for Kerry Washington that reflected the laid-back attitude of the Independent Spirit Awards, at which she was presenting later that day.
Tim Quinn began by sweeping Luminous Silk Foundation n°9 across her face to smooth out her complexion, but allow it to remain luminous throughout the day.
To keep create the daytime smoky eye that Kerry requested, Tim used a palette of deep earthy tones, including slate and deep bronze hues to shade the lid of the eye, adding a bit of drama with a sweep of Maestro liner just along the lash line and a few coats of Maestro Obsidian Black Mascara.
The glowing look was completed with a bronze palette that featured sand, gold and reddish hues that was swept from her upper cheek bones to the apples of her cheeks. A simple glossy nude lip finished off the natural, radiant look.
For the fresh, natural look Uma Thurman featured at the Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower, Tim first prepared her face with a primer that featured a touch of pink to bring out the rosy hues in her complexion.
Tim Quinn then applied the new Lasting Silk UV SPF 20 Foundation 5.5 (hits counters April 1st!!) to keep her complexion smooth throughout the evening. Tim then kept Uma’s eyes light and ethereal by using light beige and light rose tones – featured in the new Giorgio Armani Spring Palette – on her lid and finishing with a thin line of liquid liner and a sweep of ultra-black mascara. He then added a few brushes of coral-colored cream blush across the apples of her cheeks and highlighted her lips with lip wax 2 and a coat of lip shimmer 25.
