How-to: Halle Berry’s shimmery eyes and flushed cheeks at the Oscars

Halle Berry - Oscars 2013

The look:

Soft and feminine, with bold eyes and colourful cheeks.

The inspiration:

“I kept Halle’s look pretty casual and tonal, yet still glamorous, to complement the striking look of the dress. I focused on the eyes and added some shimmer for dimension. Halle [was] presenting the Bond tribute award, so that was kind of the theme for the entire look.”—Kara Yoshimoto Bua, celebrity makeup artist for Chanel.
