Slightly windblown tawny hair, sun-warmed skin, a sleek body-conscious gown and glowing, flushed-cheek, healthy-girl makeup -- classic Jennifer Aniston. And it's fabulous. Don't mess with it. Because when Jennifer Aniston does that Jennifer Aniston thing, she looks phenomenal. Here's what her makeup artist Angela Levin says she did to make her shine:
- One of the most important parts of make-up application on a day like the Oscars is longevity - it has to last all the way from the red carpet to the event and throughout the after parties. I started by hydrating Jennifer’s face and neck with Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 ($14.29 at drugstore.com), and to accentuate her glowing arms and shoulders, I used Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion ($6.99 at drugstore.com).
- I applied a thin layer of Youngblood Mineral Primer ($41 at birchbox.com) on her face and neck followed by a light layer of Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 50 Beige ($47 at nordstrom.com). As a finishing touch I used Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour in No. 50 ($58 at nordstrom.com) to achieve that sunny glow.
- I applied Chanel Cream Blush in Destiny to her cheeks as a base and then brushed on Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 190 Angélique ($45 at nordstrom.com).
- I used Chanel Professional Eye Shadow Base in Lilac on the eye lids and followed with a light powdering with Ben Nye Translucent Fair ($7.95 at amazon.com).
- For Jennifer's eye shadow I used Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Paris ($61 at nordstrom.com) and the purple and black from L'intemporel De Chanel ($80 at chanel.com).
- To finish the look I used Chanel Rouge Coco 400 Louise ($36 at nordstrom.com), with Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel ($34 at nordstrom.com) mixed with Glossimer in 41 Unity ($30 at nordstrom.com).
Sure it's great when Jennifer does something a little different with her makeup and her look. But if someone could wave a wand and say, hey, let's turn you into classic red-carpet Jennifer Aniston, I'd say hellz yeah! You?
