Oscar Beauty 2010-Mariska Hargitay Blue Shadow Trends

Law and Order: SVU actress, Mariska Hargitay looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the 2010 Academy Awards. Her hair was tousled just so and her makeup was impeccable. Her look stood out especially for me because of what a huge fan and supporter I am of blue eyeshadow. Blue eye makeup screams sophistication and is an unusual yet classic take on the traditional smoky eye. Blues are also incredibly flattering on every skin tone, if you find the hue that suits you best.

In this case, the rich metallic shade, celebrity makeup artist, Tina Turnbow opted for seriously complimented her honey brown highlights, glowing latte skin and perfectly nude pout. I'm in awe of how M&M's milk chocolate with almonds her eyes looked and how beautifully the shadow brought out the depth of color in her pupils. Turnbow filled me in on what products she used to get Hargitay to her Oscar best.

To achieve that warm dewy complexion the star wore
Chantecaille Tinted Moisture in Tan. Turnbow then used Nars Orgasm Illuminator on her cheeks, shoulders and décolleté to get her skin glowing. She then rimmed the star's eyes with Cover Girl Cobalt Blue Perfect Blend Eye Pencil and brushed on YSL #5 Colour Harmony on the eyes for that smoothed over icy blue sheen. Turnbow completed the look by applying a few coats of Cover Girl Lash Blast in Luxe. Her lips were kept super simple. Turnbow lined and filled them in with Jouer Lip Definer in Natural and then added a basic clear gloss over them.

Hargitay was a vision of Old Hollywood glamour and perfection and her legendary actress mother, Jayne Mansfield, would be proud of how effortlessly Hargitay assumed the role of the graceful, beautiful, movie star her mother once was.
