Oscar night is almost here and if you’re like me, the red carpet is the highlight of the night! The beauty and fashion world is abuzz with what celebs might be wearing, how they’re wearing their hair, and of course how their makeup will look! So what do the beauty experts predict? Well celeb make up artist Christopher Drummond (who has worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Kimora Lee Simmons, and January Jones) gave me the inside scoop to what his make up predictions are for Oscar night!
Eyes: Of course, the smoky look will be big as it always is for the red carpet. It is the “go to” look for celebrities when they want to look glamorous and dramatic. However, this year, I predict the smoky look will be accented with a lot of shimmery metals: bronze, gold, and silver. Also on the eyes: a focus on luxurious lashes and liner focused on the top on the eyes.
Color: Will also be predominant on the eyes – but not heavy color. Light, whimsical shades such as pale blue, lavender and peach will all be used generously.
Skin: Skin will be a main component of the overall look for celebrities. It’s always a pre-requisite for celebrities to have glowing radiant skin, and the Oscars are certainly no exception. Luminizers and shimmer will be used on the eyes and cheeks to help emphasize that “healthy” look.
Lips: There will be two looks: Matte, bright red or nude and glossy. Peach lips will also be a part of the look for many. Peach is always a great “go to” color for makeup artists as it works with a variety of skin tones.
Is he right? I guess we have to tune in to the Oscars to find out!
