We’ve been in Paris covering Paris Fashion Week (#PFW) for the last several days, but we found a mere moment to briefly chat with makeup maestro Bruce Grayson, 2010 Academy Awards Makeup Department Head and Olay Celebrity Makeup Artist, about red carpet beauty, and what may surprise us this year.
Red carpet beauty can become a bit typical; can we expect to see any new makeup trends at the 2010 Academy Awards?
“Expect to see a new lighter spin on smoky eyes, with sheer translucent colors that provide just the right touch of depth and brighten the eyes in colors like shimmer taupe, rich beige/bronze and luminous pewter. The coral lip trend that we saw last fall on the red carpet will continue at the Oscars in rich vivid matte corals and soft, sheer pinky/corals that give the appearance of fuller lips.”
Sounds beautiful! We’ll be watching the ceremony at 2 AM here in the City of Lights. More Oscar coverage to come soon!
