“YSL has such a heritage that it’s always its own reference. This is a very glamorous, very womanly woman. It’s a wet look hairstyle, with all of the hair is kept away from the face, like an actress. Raking the fingers through the hair adds a richness to it.”–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Tip #1: Prep Your Skin

It’s important to prep your skin a few days before a big event. In addition to drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet, the key to glowing skin is following a strict skincare regimen. For pre-event prep, try the Olay Professional Pro-X Intensive Firming Treatment ($62) – this two step kit combines a hydrating mask and tightening serum. Packed with an effective blend of anti-aging ingredients, it works to firm skin by helping restore its natural fullness, elasticity and tension. In just five days skin looks significantly younger and firmer!

Carey Mulligan Oscars 2010: The Makeup

Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell prepped Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan for the big Oscar night.

How to get Carey Mulligan’s Oscars 2010 makeup look by makeup artist Georgie Eisdell:

“This was Carey’s first Oscars so I wanted to make sure she looked age appropriate but still embrace the glamour of the night. Carey’s dress was edgy and elegant so I wanted to keep her makeup looking fresh and youthful. I wanted to enhance the natural beauty of her skin so I used La Mer foundation lightly powdered with La Mer’s translucent powder over that. For her eyes, I used Chanel soft beige and pink shadows from their spice palette. I used MAC’s black track eye liner followed by YSL’s Faux Cils mascara in black. To finish off her eyes I sharpened up her eyebrows with Laura Mercier’s soft blonde brow powder duo. For her cheeks, I wanted to give them a pinched cheek look with Dior’s glowing color powder blush in fruit de la passion. For the finishing touch on her skin, I used Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in medium. And finally on her lips I used Dior addict lip polish 004. I used La Mer body creme on the way out the door to give her body the same glow.”

Tina’s skin was prepped with Lancôme Secret de Vie Toner (Ana Marie’s favorite!) and moisturized with Bienfait Multi Vital, a combination that keeps the skin looking vibrant all day.
