Marisa Tomei's 2011 Oscar Makeup - HowTo Tips

Actress Marisa Tomei looked breathtaking in a dark blue Lily et Cie 1950 Charles James Couture gown which was accented with  layers of asymmetrical navy tulle.

She carried a Kotur miniaudiere and was shimmering with Van Cleef & Arpels sparklers.

Her hair and make-up was flawless.  Celebrity Make-up Artist Matthew VanLeeuwen created presenter Marisa Tomei's Red Carpet look for the 83rd annual Oscar Awards.

For Marisa Tomei's gorgeous red carpet look, makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen worked exclusively with Anastasia Beverly Hills product.

Matthew took the Anastasia Highlighting Crème Duo in St Tropez (image #1 below) dipped into the crème blush and applied it in gentle back and forth sweeps across Marisa's smiling cheeks.

Pro tip: smiling makes the job mistake proof, because it helps the blush go where it's supposed to.

Using the same brush, Matthew dipped into the highlighting crème and brushed the tops of the lips and nose with the illuminating fluid.  The skin was “so translucent and smooth looking!”

Turning to brows, Matthew filled and shaped Marisa's with Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette (image #2) and created a few feathery strokes in the brow and to define the bottom edge of the brow.

Matthew then took Anastasia Brow Duality Pencil (image #3) and placed a bit of the matte highlighter just at the arch of the brow.

The total effect is ultra defined and crisp brows that perfectly frame the face.

Moving to the eyes, Matthew took Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette 1 (image #4) and dusted the soft pink sorbet shadow all over the eye to brighten and tone the skin. Matthew raved that “the shadow is so smoothing and imparts a modern velvety texture.”

Then Matthew took Illumin8 palette 3 (image #5) and blended the mauve shade into the crease “to create the perfect shade of orchid.”

Next, Matthew lined the eye with a thin line of black pencil and smudged the sparkly blue/black shadow from Illumin8 palette #3 into the lashline to create a softer, smokey eye line.

The eye makeup was finished by curling the lashes and applying two coats of Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara (image #6), which Matthew says “has reached cult status with many of my clients...it's incredible.”

Finally to finish Marisa’s stunning look, Matthew applied Anastasia Hydrafull Lip Gloss in Sangria (image #7), a gorgeous soft amethyst berry shade.

Daily Hair Tip
A perfect hair knot is one of the simplest ideas to jazz up the back of any hair. The most important part of having a hair knot is that it look immaculate and be pinned securely. If your hair is too short to form a hair knot you can clip on a fake ponytail and twist it into the knot of your choice.
