You might not have been invited to the Oscars this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t at least recreate the red carpet glamour at home. Thanks to the team at Nars Cosmetics, we’ve got the lowdown on the makeup worn by Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone.
Brie Larson’s statement lip
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, director of the Nars Pro Artistry & Red Carpet division in North America, based Larson’s look on the strong women photographed by Helmut Newton. She used the “Soft Matte Complete Concealer” and “Seaside Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer” from the Nars Summer 2017 collection to give the actress a flawless glow, before going in with the “Famous Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil” to create a statement lip that, coupled with Larson’s textured waves and black robe, made for a vampish, sexy finish.
Scarlett Johansson’s pink glow
Nars teamed up with makeup artist Frankie Boyd to create Scarlett Johansson’s fresh red carpet look. Inspired by the pink, green and magenta tones in Johansson’s Alaïa gown, Boyd prepped the actress’s complexion with the “Soft Matte Complete Concealer” before dabbing “Orgasm Liquid Blush” from the brand’s upcoming Summer 2017 collection across her cheekbones for a pretty glow. A slick of the peachy-pink “Get Off Velvet Matte Lip Pencil” completed the look.
Emma Stone’s old school glamour
Emma Stone lit up the red carpet in her flapper-style Givenchy couture gown and matching flawless makeup. Rachel Goodwin was once again the artist behind the look, which was inspired by the romantic paintings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Goodwin turned to the Nars “Velvet Matte Skin Tint” to add radiance to Stone’s complexion, giving color to the cheeks with the aforementioned “Orgasm Liquid Blush.” The brand’s “Mona Audacious Lipstick” was the product behind the highly covetable rusty red lip hue that provided the perfect complement to Stone’s gold dress and russet waves.
