Celebrity Makeup: Penelope Cruz, Oscar’s 2012
One of the most established and of course one of the most beautiful face in Hollywood, Penelope Cruz, looked dazzling and regal in the recent Academy Awards 2012. Her makeup emphasized her features and gave her a defined and radiant look.
This look is perfect for women in their 30s and above. Penelope looked amazing as she chooses to stick with neutral colors instead of the classic reds or bright shades. This look can be created easily and is great for cocktail events, or even daytime activities if you’re more into nude yet defined makeup.
To get Penelope’s look: Start with a clear and well moisturized face and continue on your regular foundation and concealer routine, choose a sheer to medium coverage foundation or even a tinted moisturizer if you already have a naturally clear skin. Give your eyebrows shape and definition by creating a soft arch and filling the sparse areas with a soft brown brow liner. Apply a light beige eyeshadow on your eyelids and blend it with a taupe shade from the outer corner of your eyes to create a soft smokey eye and apply a shimmering vanilla colored eyeshadow on your brow bone for a highlighting effect. Apply eyeliner on your upper and lower lid and finish it off with a coat or two of mascara on your eyelashes. Dab a small amount of bronzer or a peach shade of blush on the apples of your cheeks and line your lips with a nude lipliner and fill in your lips with a nude matte lipstick.
