Stars were truly shining at this year’s Oscars—from show-stopping gowns to flawless skin and impeccable makeup that completed each look. Prepping stars for those magical moments on the red carpet starts at dawn, and no detail is too small for professional attention when the eyes of the world are literally upon you.
Makeup artists lay the groundwork for each unforgettable look with high-performance skincare to create the perfect canvas. Makeup artist Dimitris Giannetos prepared TV host and actress Maria Menounos’ skin with Murad to bring out a fresh-faced, effortless glow.
“I started preparing Maria’s face using Rapid Collagen Infusion®,” said Giannetos. This lightweight treatment absorbs quickly into skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 2 hours—just in time for any close-up interviews and red-carpet photo ops!
“Then I applied Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture,” he continued. Rather than using highlighter to create a more obviously theatrical look, layering this luxurious moisturizer under makeup creates a natural, healthy glow and keeps skin hydrated for hours.
“To achieve an amazing cat-eye look, I used Eye Lift Firming Treatment for a fresh and sexy look!” said Giannetos. A smooth, lifted under-eye area will boost the wow factor of even the most understated eye makeup.
