A single color pop of makeup can easily transform your day makeup into a ultra-glam Fierce Friday look! Case in point—Viola Davis at the 2012 Academy Awards. The green accent of eyeliner was all it took to escalate Davis' makeup look from just pretty to FIERCE!
Best Actress nominee Viola Davis looked absolutely fabulous on the 84th annual Academy Award red carpet. Wearing a green Vera Wang gown that showcased her glistening brown skin and svelte body, Davis made green, glam.
Her impeccable styling, flawless makeup by celebrity makeup artist Autumn Moultrie and a fresh crop of red-tinted natural curls was the topic of much conversation.
When walking the red carpet, makeup and fashion go hand-in-hand. Viola, "The Help" star, put her best face forward with a glammed-up natural look, accentuated with subtle bursts of green and golden highlights.
