I'm told her dress was a hot mess, but since all I look at is from the neck up, I think Anna Kendrick was stunning on Oscars night. Instead of the usual classic red lip look, hers was more of a pinky-red stain, and paired with a wash of grey eyeshadow.
"We wanted to make a statement with the makeup and show a more playful side, while still keeping true to her classic beauty," says her makeup artist, Sara Glick. "We usually play her lips down with nudes and light pinks, but for tonight, I wanted her to stop the show by surprising everyone with a bright lip in the amazing new Dior Addict Fluid Stick shade Open Me [available in May]. It's easy and smooth, but the colour lasts, so we didn’t even need a liner under or a gloss on top."
Here's the beautiful close-up:
And here's what you need to get the look....
To illuminate the skin, she used Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen in Roseglow 001.
She also dusted Dior Diorskin Voyage Nude Tan Golden Shimmer Powder Transit Edition (limited edition) on Anna's T-zone and neck as a highlighter.
Anna is wearing Dior DiorBlush Vibrant Colour Powder Blush in 943 My Rose. (This is Dior's amazing new blush launch; Jennifer Lawrence wore the same blush in 553 Cocktail Peach.)
To fill in Anna's brows, Sara used Dior Powder Brow Pencil in Blond 653.
Sara prepped Anna's lids with Dior Backstage Eye Prime, to help her shadows stay put without smearing or creasing.
The silvery grey shadows are from the Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette Trianon Edition in Pastel Fontanges 234 (new for spring). I love the Dior script in the middle and the colours for this were inspired by Marie Antionette!
Finally, generous coats of Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black 090 (rich black) emphasized Anna's lashes.
Along with Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Kendrick was also wearing the new Dior Addict Fluid Stick, available in May. Anna's shade was Open Me 753. Stay tuned for news on that!
Here's the finished look:
I love the unexpected combo of red and grey together for a sophisticated, glamorous evening makeup look.
