Best Supporting Actress nominee Amanda Seyfried pulled off a romantic yet dramatic makeup look at this years 93rd Annual Oscars. Wearing a bright red gown from Armani her showstopping dress was perfectly complimented with a bold makeup look. Red on red may sound like a color clash but makeup artist Genevieve Herr decided to use it for inspiration. “The glorious red tulle of Amanda Seyfried’s Armani gown, with its combination of classic and modern architecture, inspired me to use a bold, complementary color on her lips, while choosing warm colors and bright highlights on her eyes.” – Genevieve Herr for Lancôme.

Amanda Seyfried Oscars Skin Preparation

Skin prep is essential for any makeup look. Before wearing a full face of makeup loading up the skin with hydration will assist with providing a beautiful smooth base for a flawless makeup application.

To prep her skin for the Oscars Amanda Seyfried used the Lancôme Clarifique Face Essence the night prior and morning-of on her face and neck. This exfoliating treatment works to smooth skin texture minimize the appearance of pores and hydrate the skin thus creating a perfect base for makeup. On the day of the Oscars makeup artist Genevieve Herr applied Lancôme Advanced Genifique Serum. The best-selling serum quickly absorbs into the skin to provide a burst of hydration and a smooth canvas for makeup application. Beyond skincare Amanda Seyfried’s skin was also prepped with Lancôme Prep & Hydrate Primer to ensure all-night staying power throughout the Oscars.

Amanda Seyfried Makeup for Oscars

Face Makeup

When wearing a lot of red tones in both makeup and clothing it’s important to neutralize any signs of redness. To perfect the porcelain complexion of Amanda Seyfried Genevieve applied Lancôme Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation with a damp sponge and used a lighter shade of the Teint Idôle Ultra Makeup Stick as concealer where needed. To add dimension to Amanda’s Oscars makeup look Genevieve then shaded and contoured Amanda’s cheekbones, jawline and nose with a darker shade of Lancôme NEW Teint Idôle Ultra Makeup Stick and blended with the built-in kabuki brush for a seamless finish. To highlight the cheekbones and add radiance Genevieve applied Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter in Luminous Gold and dusted it on the high-points of the face where the light would naturally hit for an all over glow. With so many red tones in the makeup Genevieve opted for a light application of Lancôme Blush Subtil in Blushing Tresor by applying and blending the product using her fingers to provide a soft hint of color.

Eye Makeup

To create a tonal makeup look to compliment Amanda Seyfried’s lipstick, Genevieve chose warm colors and bright highlights which bring out Amanda Seyfried’s green eyes. Firstly Genevieve lined Amanda’s upper lash line with Lancôme Le Crayon Khol in Black Coffee, taking it from the inner corner to the outer edge and softening the line to create a subtle smokey effect. To set the eyeliner into place for all-night wear throughout the Oscars Genevieve applied shade #5 (dark brown) from the Lancôme Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Fusion and blended it across the lash line. To create warm reddish-tones Genevieve added shade #3 (cranberry shimmer) from the Rose Fusion Palette before adding drama to the lashes. Next, Genevieve curled Amanda’s lashes and started with Lancôme Dèfinicils High Definition Lengthening Mascara and re-coated the lashes with Lancôme Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara for added drama on the Oscars red carpet.


Amanda Seyfried’s lipstick was the ultimate stand-out of her Oscars makeup look. The beautiful deep plum lip was created with the NEW Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink in Nuit Pourpre. First Genevieve lined Amanda’s lips with Lancôme Le Lip Liner in Rose and then applied NEW Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink in 481 Nuit Pourpre (launches in May) for a bold pop of color.
