Get the Look: Salma Hayek’s Sultry Oscar Makeup

By  February 25, 2013

From her Audrey Hepburn inspired bun to her her designer clad feet, Salma Hayek was a vision of perfection at the 85th annual Academy Awards. To complement Salma’s stunning hip hugging velvet and gold embellished Alexander McQueen gown, makeup artist Jo Strettell of The Magnet Agency envisioned a dark smoky eye, classic nude lip  and glowing, dewy, skin for the actress. Using products from Nuance Salma Hayek, a natural ingredient premium beauty line exclusive to CVS/pharmacy®, here’s how she got the look:

FOUNDATION: Strettell applied a touch of Nuance Salma Hayek Brightening BB Cream to perfect and smooth Salma’s complexion, Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation to blur the skin tones and Nuance Salma Hayek Front & Center Concealer & Brightener under the eyes to even things out. Using a large powder brush, fixing the foundation in a buffing action, she applied Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Coverage Mineral Foundation to finish.

BLUSH: On the apple of the cheeks and dragging into hairline, Strettell applied Salma Hayek Flawless Mineral Cheek Trio in Apricot for a coral glow.

EYE SHADOW: Using Nuance Salma Hayek Lasting Wear Gel Liner in black in the water line, eyelash line and eye contour line, Strettell blended the products into a smoky thick line. She then applied black powder from the Nuance Salma Hayek Beautiful Blends Eye Quad in Neutral with a soft brush over the whole eye and then highlighted the lid with gold shimmer

MASCARA: Lots and lots of Nuance Salma Hayek Full Effect mascara layered to add thickness and extra length!

LIPS: Last but not least, Salma’s lips got a subtle shine with Nuance Salma Hayek Color Vibrance Lipstick in Shimmering Nude.
