In anticipation and excitement for the Oscars Lancôme Ambassadress Amanda Seyfried helped co-host an exciting and elegant affair between Vanity Fair & Lancôme at the “Celebrate The Future of Hollywood” Pre-Academy Awards Event. As Amanda wore an edgy little black dress the makeup was kept modern and fresh. “My inspiration for the makeup was the Elie Saab futuristic minidress. It was seductive and fun and inspired me to pair it with a dramatic black eyeliner, fresh skin, and a nude lip” – Genevieve Herr for Lancôme.
Amanda Seyfried’s Makeup Look for the Lancôme Vanity Fair Pre-Oscars Party
Prepping and priming the face before applying makeup for a big event is an important step to hydrate and prepare the skin for foundation application. Genevieve started by applying Lancôme Prep & Hydrate Primer all over Amanda’s face. After prepping the skin Genevieve used Lancôme Teint Idôle Ultra Wear Foundation Stick all over the face and then used a lighter shade as concealer where needed to add additional coverage.
To add subtle color to the face and ensure it does not look washed out in photos. Genevieve used a touch of Lancôme Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose on the apples of the cheeks for a hint of color and warmth.
The classic cat eye is an iconic makeup look that is often seen on the red carpet. To create a cat eye Genevieve first used Lancôme Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in French Nude to define and add depth with the light brown eyeshadow color in the crease and a touch of the lightest shade in the inner corners.
Next Genevieve lined Amanda’s upper lash line with Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony, using the pencil eyeliner as a guide for the liquid eyeliner. To create the cat eye effect Genevieve used Lancôme Artliner Precision Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner. Genevieve created a thicker line to ensure the eye popped and then did a little flick at the end to keep it sexy and edgy. As the final step Amanda’s lashes were curled before Lancôme Grandiôse Extréme Mascara was applied to the top lashes for extra volume and lift.
To finish the look, Genevieve created a soft nude lip. First she lined Amanda’s lips with Lancôme Le Lip Liner in Fraichelle and then applied Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick in Merci Simone on top for a beautiful soft matte finish.
