Salma Hayek wowed everyone last night in an iconic look at the 2013 Oscars. Jo Strettel at The Magnet Agency created the look with her dress in mind.

“With an Alexander McQueen dress embellished with gold jewels and the Audrey Hepburn inspired updo (pined with jeweled tiara), I wanted to do a dark smoky eye and classic nude lip with the glowing, dewy, gorgeous skin that Salma has," said Strettel.

Focusing on her skin, Strettel used Nuance Salma Hayek Brightening BB Cream to perfect and smooth the complexion.

Next, Strettel used Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation in Medium Deep Warm to blur the skin tones and Nuance Salma Hayek Front & Center Concealer & Brightener under the eyes to even the skin tone.

 Using a large powder brush, fixing the foundation in a buffing action, apply Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Coverage Mineral Foundation in Medium/Deep

For a coral glow, Strettel used Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Mineral Cheek Trio in Apricot on the apple of the cheeks and dragging into hairline.

For the smoky eye look, use Nuance Salma Hayek Lasting Wear Gel Liner (black) in the water line, eyelash line and eye contour line, and blend to a smoky thick line.

Apply black powder from the Nuance Salma Hayek Beautiful Blends Eye Quad in Neutral with a soft brush smoking over the whole eye and then highlight the lid with gold shimmer. Top with Nuance Salma Hayek Full Effect mascara to add thickness and extra length.

Finish with a coat of Nuance Salma Hayek Color Vibrance Lipstick in Shimmering Nude.

For Salma's Hair, Peter Savic at Solo Artists teased an updo using Nuance Salma Hayek Texturing Sea Salt Spray, and finished with Nuance Salma Hayek Style & Finish Firm Hold Hairspray.
