For a girl who just endured a divorce from Taye Diggs AND was called Adele Dazeem by John Travolta, she brought her beauty A-game tonight. Celebrity makeup artist Matin created Idina Menzel’s luminous makeup look at this evening’s 86th Academy Awards. Matin exclusively used 29 by Lydia Mondavi and Pixi by Petra makeup products – all available at Target for under $25 each. Here’s how to get the look.
Step 1: Create a canvas for long-lasting makeup using Flawless & Poreless Primer ($22.49)
Step 2: Dust Flawless Vitamin Veil ($24) over the face for light coverage
Step 3: Dab Correction Concentrate ($12) under the eyes and anywhere that needs additional coverage
Step 4: Apply the Succulent Lip Twin in Coral Camellia ($18) balm to the apples of the cheek for a natural flush
Step 5: For the eyes, create a thick line along the lash line with Lid Last Shadow Pen in Bronze Brilliance ($18), pushing upwards onto the lid, then adding a layer of Endless Silky Eye Pen in EmeraldGold ($12)
Step 6: Create depth on the lids using the Mesmerizing Mineral Palette ($12). Start with the matte brown shade and dabbing along the lash line, then filling out lids with the shimmery mauve and finally highlighting the inner corners of the eyes with the shimmery gold shade and Endless Silky Eye Pen in Oyster Glow ($12)
Step 7: Fill out brows with the tapered pencil end of the Natural Brow Duo ($16 )
Step 8: For full lashes, layer on two to three coats of Large Lash Mascara in Bold Black ($16)
Step 9: Buff lips with 29 by Lydia Mondavi First Crush Lip Scrub ($10) to create a smooth canvas for both the balm and gloss from Succulent Lip Twin in Opal Orchid ($18), finishing with a fresh, youthful look
