2011 Oscars Makeup: Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman‘s makeup look was created by makeup artist Angela Levin. The inspiration:
“Nicole’s Oscar look was glamorous Hollywood with a Brigitte Bardot twist. She looked sexy and playful! Beautiful glowing pale lips, rosy cheeks, and glamour were my inspiration, concentrating on her beautiful eyes and gorgeous skin.”


“To prepare Nicole’s skin, I used CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream all over her face and neck, as well as on her shoulders and décolleté. As a base I used CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup in Ivoire. For the eyes, I used the dark shade from the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Bleu-Tendre feathering the shadow inward, creating a dark outer corner of the eye, for a bit of a up 60’s look. Then I used the taupe shade in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Stupendous in the inner corner of the eye. From the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Winter Nights, I used the medium, silvery taupe shade and swept it on all over the eye using a round motion, blending all the shades together. On her eyebrows I used the CHANEL Brow Definer in Blond Clair, and two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir, on top and bottom. Underneath the eye I used a Sephora Nano Eye Pencil in Silver Green. For her lips we chose CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Magnolia. Then I used the same shade of lip colour on her cheeks, dabbing the shade on the apples of her cheeks with my finger. One of my favorite red carpet beauty tricks!”

I did NOT enjoy that dress, but her makeup certainly shined. What say you, beauties?
