Celebrity makeup artist Kindra Mann worked with Busy Philipps for her Oscars 2017 makeup look. Kindra was inspired by Busy’s deep green velvet Elizabeth Kennedy gown with sheer simple cut-outs. To complement the color of the dress and her sleek, straight hair, Kindra wanted to accentuate the eyes keeping it fresh with a hint of glamour. Here, the beauty breakdown, straight from Kindra.
Face: The glam session started off by prepping Busy’s skin with Avon nutraeffects Radiance Day Cream, to give it a luminous glow. Kindra then used Avon Extra Lasting Cream-to-Powder Foundation in Medium Beige to even out Busy’s complexion. On the cheeks, she used Avon True Color Luminous Blush in Coral Radiance for a shimmery peach pop to warm up the look.
Brows and Eyes: To keep the eyes looking simple yet romantic, Kindra kept the base shadow soft by using a wash of a light beige (shade #1) from Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte. She then applied a warm green (shade #4) from Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Emerald Cutto the lid and into the crease, using a slightly damp angled brush; this created the defused winged liner effect. To give the eyes a bit more sparkle, Kindra used Avon Extra Lasting Eyeshadow Ink in Gold Gleam on the inner corner of the eye and slightly underneath the lower lash line mixed with the green shadow. To finish off the eyes, she brushed Busy’s brows in place and added a few coats of NEW Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara in Black to her lashes.
Lips: To complete the look, Kindra applied NEW Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Melon, which perfectly complemented the peachy hue on Busy’s cheeks.
