Get Tina Fey’s Oscars 2009 Makeup Look

Makeup artist Gita Bass created Tina Fey’s red carpet look for the 2009 Oscars. Gita shares her red carpet tips and techniques for creating Tina’s makeup look yourself.

Luminous Skin: “Glowing radiant skin is a must on the red carpet! I love using the Elizabeth Arden Mineral Powder Foundation-it contains mica which reflects light creating a luminous finish that’s never greasy, and it is virtually invisible on the skin, perfect for HD.”

Smoky Eyes: “I wanted to give Tina a soft smoky eye, so I chose a gunmetal shade instead of a harsh black. The Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil is the perfect tool as it delivers a great amount of pigment and it blends beautifully. Adding a little shimmer on the inner corners and the upper lid creates a 3 dimensional finish that really pops.”

Sexy Lashes: “To accentuate Tina’s sexy feline shaped eyes, I added some individual lashes on the outer corners of the upper lid. Curl the lashes and add 2 coats of mascara before adding the lashes-this way you can see where the gaps are and just fill them in.”

Bold Lip: “A natural lip is a great compliment to a smoky eye. I chose Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick in Pink Honey Pearl. It’s sheer enough to not compete with the eye but contains a hint of gold to add some warmth to the face.

…For added staying power, line the lips with a liner the same color as your lip, fill in the line and then layer the lipstick over the top. To create an even sexier pout, add a sheer layer of pink gloss – I used Elizabeth Arden High Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Pout.
