2012 Academy Awards: Get the Look—Paula Patton at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

2012 Academy Awards: Get the Look—Paula Patton at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

The Vanity Fair Oscars party was the place to be last night with tons of celebrities coming together to celebrate.

COVERGIRL Paula Patton, Ambassador for for the Queen Collection,  was in attendance at the Vanity Fair Oscars party,  and CoverGirl partnered with her celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles, to get the details of her beauty look we saw on the red carpet.  

Showing plenty of  gorgeous leg in a thigh-grazing Naeem Khan dress and Jimmy Choo pumps, Paula was a stand-out among the throngs of celebrities working the red carpet in floor-length gowns.  

Her blinging accessories—a clutch by Marchesa and jewels by Chopard were elegant and simple, not detracting from her red carpet appearance.

Trending hair of the night was side-swept hair styles, and Paula took advantage of the popular hair trend by wearing her hair to the side held in place with a jeweled hair clip.

After moisturizing  and prepping the lips with lip balm, I used a Beauty Blender and synthetic foundation brush to apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Liquid Makeup in Rich Sand.  I added a little CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in Light where needed and a bit of COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Lush Berry on the apples of the cheeks with a dual fiber brush, then set both of those creamy products with COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder and a bit of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Pressed Powder Light Bronze .  I filled in her brows using COVERGIRL Brow & Eyemakers Pencil in Midnight Brown and brushed them into place.  


First I used a primer on the lids to make sure that the shadow doesn't budge.  Then I used a wash of the COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Light Bronze & Brown Bronze from the lash line up towards the brow to add a little depth to the eye.  Then I lined the eyes with COVERGIRL LineBlast 24HR Eyeliner in Enduring Black, putting black liner in the waterline top and bottom.  I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Truffle at the lashes so that there would be depth, but with a softer feeling than if it was rimmed in black.  


I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Brown Bronze over the liner on the inner corners of the eyes and used COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire at the outer corners to elongate the eye. Lots of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lash Fanatic Mascara in Black added drama to the look.


We lined whole mouth with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lasting Lip Pencil in Rose to define the lips and add longevity to the lip color. Then we applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in Penelope Pink


I always give my client blotting papers and their lip color to take with them for touch ups during the night, so Paula headed to the party with the Queen Collection lip color we used in case she needed to reapply. To find the perfect lip shade, we tried a few different shades of pink, some brighter, some more berry colored, but we went with the soft pink in the end and let the eye be the main focus of the look.
