"This is my favorite look I’ve done for Oscar,” says Revlon’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman. “It’s chic, sophisticated, fun, and really works with the beautiful clothes. Plus it’s a great way to lighten up the traditional smoky eye for spring.” The vibrant eye is a blend of green and blue eye shadows (the blue, Revlon Matte Eyeshadow in Venetian Blue, $5, is available now; the green, found in Revlon ColorStay 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Silver Fox, $7, will be available in October) that Gucci brushed over and under the lids. She also lined the inner rims of both the upper and lower lash lines with black liquid liner, which “makes it feel cool,” and finished with Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black, $9.
The hair—an exaggerated bun a la Grace Kelly on her wedding day—was done by stylist Orlando Pita. He slicked strands up into a high ponytail, pulled the tail through a big, round foam ring, then wrapped it over the ring and pinned the ends underneath. "It’s meant to make the girls look like princesses or young debutantes," Pita told us backstage.
