Last night’s Best Actress winner, Cate Blanchett, channeled a modern movie star look makeupwise, created by makeup artist Jeanine Lobell. “We were inspired by classic, old Hollywood and wanted to give Cate a look that will be timeless,” said Jeanine. It was incredibly generous of her to use her 42 seconds to say something nice about her fellow nominees. And I lived for #SuckIt, Julia. Here, the beauty breakdown.
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad #2 Effeto Nudo – Jeanine used the warm taupe shade all over as a base; the deeper taupe on the lid and feathered it into the crease to open up the eye; the light brown was mixed with the deeper taupe and applied to the outer crease and center; and the darkest brown was wet and used as a liner.
Troy Surratt Lash Curler
Lancôme Hypnôse Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara – After cutting a strip of false lashes and applying to the corner of the eye, Jeanine applied the mascara to the base of the lashes and pressed it in to give her real lashes a false effect
Makeup Forever Brow Gel
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence – Jeanine patted this into the skin before applying foundation to allow her to use a more lightweight foundation and to ensure it will stay put all night long
Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush #10 Beige – Jeanine applied this to the apples of Cate’s cheeks and feathered it out before applying a second coat to ensure she looked like she was glowing from within
Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in #103 – Jeanine finished the look with this creamy, beige-y pink
What do you think of Cate’s win and makeup look?
