The stars were shining bright on the red carpet at the Oscars last night, and it’s no coincidence that the most beautiful women there all had their brows shaped by the same person: Anastasia Soare, The Definitive Brow and Eye Expert! Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez, and Paula Patton all had appointments with Anastasia at Anastasia Beverly Hills in the days leading up to Oscar Sunday.

Penelope Cruz

Anastasia shaped Penelope Cruz’s brows in a high full arch, making her arches bold and defined. Penelope has big, beautiful eyes that can support a high arch.

Fergie at the 2010 Golden Globes

GET THE LOOK: Love Fergie’s brows at the 67th Golden Globe Awards? Well, the secret to Fergie’s perfect brows is Beverly Hills’ most sought-after brow expert, Anastasia Soare, who is a must for any A-Lister walking the red carpet. BTW-Fergie’s lilac chiffon gown was by Elie Saab.

This year, Anastasia perfected the brows of Golden Globe winner Julianna Margulies, as well as nominees Penelope Cruz, Jane Adams, presenter Jennifer Garner. Other regular clients of Anastasia’s who were also at the Golden Globes include Nine star Fergie and Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss.

Anastasia’s tips on how to get your brows red carpet ready:

How many days/weeks before a big event should you have eyebrows done? Why this period of time? 

“We never want to schedule brow shaping’s for actresses the day before or the actual day of an event because there is too much running around between fittings, hair and makeup and your skin can become very sensitive to wax after a facial or with the application of makeup right after a shaping. I prefer 3-6 days before as this gives the skin enough time to be even with the skin tone of the face. When we remove hair with wax the dead skin is “exfoliated” off and can be slightly lighter in pigment for a day or two. In addition, in the event that there is any redness at all we want to be cautious and avoid this by shaping ahead.”

Gabourey Sidibe at the 2010 Golden Globes

GET THE LOOK:  Gabourey Sidibe, Golden Globe nominee for her lead role in the movie Precious, partnered with Bobbi Brown to create her Golden Globe glow.

“I wanted Gabourey to look pretty powerful, but still like herself, so I gave her glowing skin and modern, sexy eyes. She doesn’t need a lot of makeup, so we added some sparkle shadow, lashes and color to her lips and cheeks, and she was perfect. I love this look because she has a natural glow and looks like the prettiest version of herself.”-Bobbi Brown.

Makeup tutorial on how to get Gabourey Sidibe’s makeup look at the 67th Golden Globe Awards using Bobbi Brown products:

Step 1: Prep skin with Soothing Face Tonic and Hydrating Face Cream
Step 2: Apply Chestnut Concealer under eye. Use Concealer Brush to get an even application.
Step 3: Apply Oil-Free Compact Foundation in Chestnut with a sponge and/or Foundation Brush

Vera Farmiga at the Up in the Air LA Premier: Get The Look

Vera Farmiga was sporting red lips at the Up in the Air LA Premier on Monday, November 30th, 2009, Westwood, Los Angeles, CA. Vera was wearing a dress by Dolce & Gabbana and her makeup look was created by Tina Turnbow, a Natural Makeup Artist.

“Vera’s look was simple glamour: Her dress was ephemeral – a white, almost grecian Dolce & Gabbana, and I wanted her makeup look to shine forth her beautiful features, while keeping that simple, effortless air.”-Tina Turnbow

Face Products: “Vera has a beautiful, fair complexion, so I kept it simple – with a lightweight foundation and finished with a light, rosy blush.

Foundation: Almay Pure Blends Mineral Makeup in Fair – “l love that this foundation is 97.4% natural”

Blush: Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in Blushed – “It’s a beautiful cream stick that creates very natural-looking rosy cheeks.” Mineral Fusion Blush in
Trace
“a soft, baby pink to highlight cheek bones”

Powder: Tarte Provocateur SPF 8 Pressed Mineral Powder & Compact in Fair

Jennifer Lopez at the This Is It Premiere: Get The Look For Less

Jennifer Lopez lit up the red carpet at the ‘This Is It’ premiere.

Here is how you can get Jennifer Lopez aka JLO’s look for less with MILANI COSMETICS:

“She will usually emphasize one feature at a time, never allowing her makeup to overpower her exquisite features,” says Celebrity Makeup Artist Bebe Booth, who has worked with everyone from Britney Spears to Shannon Elizabeth. Bebe reveals how you can recreate Jennifer’s look for less with MILANI COSMETICS for around $50! www.milanicosmetics.com

EYES: It is all about the eyes for this look. To achieve these beautiful bold smokey eyes for an evening out on the town, you will need several shadows to create the look. I recommend two palettes from Milani’s Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows; Backstage Basics ($8.99) for your shimmery silver & black shades and the Ready To Wear ($8.99) palette for the golden highlight around the inner corners of your eyes. Each of these palettes has six shades to choose from, so you have many options for creating a soft or heavy smokey eye. For this look, keep the darker shades toward the outer crease and the shimmer highlights toward the inner crease of the eye.

New York Fashion Spring 2010 Trend Report: Maria Grachvogel

The Show: Maria Grachvogel
Lead Artist: James Boehmer, NARS Cosmetics International Lead Makeup Artist
Trend: Bold Red Matte Lips and Strong Brows

Inspiration: Maria Grachvogel used iconic references of Princess Margaret as photographed by Lord Snowden and Tippi Hedren in “Marnie” to convey the mood of her collection in a modern way- polished yet glamorous.

Look: The look is polished and strong- inspired by a glamorous and modern twist of Hitchcock’s femme fatale. “This look is not about the glowing skin underneath- it’s about the makeup- the brows need to be long and sketchy and the lips need to be rounded and bee-stung,” said lead artist James Boehmer. A flat, matte lip paired with a strong brow was balanced by a bare eye. “The lip,” James warns, “has to be really rich and vibrant- the focus is getting that rich lip otherwise the look can appear as if something is lacking.”

Below are some key products and steps for recreating the look:
