Replicate Heidi Klum’s Makeup at the 2009 Oscars
In case you're wondering how Heidi Klum is looking so flawless and young on the red carpet at the Academy Awards (aside from being in a gorgeous, red Roland Mouret dress), check out Victoria's Secret's VS Makeup "The Spring Look" kit. The five-piece kit, pictured above, includes: a Highlighter/Blush Duo in Fresh, a VS High-Definition Mascara in Blackest Black, a Lip Gloss in Blush, and an Eye Shadow Quad featuring the shades Devoted, Primal, Rich and Champagne.
To achieve the look, Victoria's Secret makeup artist Linda Hay blended both blush hues for a dewy, pretty hue, then sweeping the lighter shade on the cheekbone to contour the area. The eyes, meanwhile, are an updated take on the smoky eye look. To get the look, Hay brushed the mauve (Primal) shade onto the lid, added the dark brown (Rich) shade to the crease, opened up the eyes by speckling the brow bone with tiny dots of the sparkling nude color (Champagne) and adding a tiny dot at the inside corners of the eye. To finish the look, the lined to lower lashline wtih the Devoted (soft pink) shade. To create luscious, longer-looking eyelashes, Hay added three coats of black mascara. And, of course, since the idea is an understated but sexy look, Hay dabbed on some Blush Lip gloss.
The best part: you can find everything you need in one handy kit, which comes with instructions (and illustrations) for those who want to repeat the look step-by-step. Hey, see if it makes you feel red carpet ready!
