Natalie Portman's 2011 Oscar Make-up Secrets

On Oscar night, we saw Natalie Portman looking stunning in a deep purple Rodarte dress, which from the looks we saw on the carpet it will definitely be a standout color for the Spring season.

The Oscar winner's complexion was naturally glowing as a mommy to be and her makeup was soft and pretty to highlight that.  Get the lovely Natalie's gorgeous make-up at home with simple tips from LA-based makeup connoisseur Juliana Landis.

To re-create this look start with a primer and a light tinted moisturizer, lightly conceal around the eyes nose and mouth and use a setting powder such as Mac's Mineralize, to help set the makeup for the evening.

Use a neutral shade all over from the lid to brow with a slight purple hue such as Mac's Yogurt would be a great color, follow with a softer lilac color all over the lid such as Glomineral's lilac and Mac's Parfait Armour in the crease and to line the eyes for a slight smokey look, use a big fluffy brush to blend and finish with a waterproof mascara just incase you weep.

Use Nars Orgasm on the apples of the cheeks to accentuate the glowing skin and a beautiful peachy gloss.

Daily Hair Tip
Whenever possible limit or avoid using a brush on curly tresses. Instead use a widetooth pick or comb with "hair friendly" edges that won't rip or tear fragile curls.
