LIFT: Oscars 2011 Edition

L.I.F.T = Looks I’m Feeling Today!!

I love watching award shows. I am always curious as to how trends (be it makeup or fashion trends) are translated by the actors, musicians, industry “people” and their stylists and makeup artists.

Yesterday was no different, as I tuned in to watch the the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. Of course, the red carpet looks did not disappoint.

Below are my favorite looks from last night:

Camila Alves (the mother of Matthew McConaughey’s children) was my standout person of the night. I loved her whole look. Simplicity at it’s best!!!

Jennifer Hudson looked radiant in this tangerine Atelier Versace gown. Again, as with the Grammys, her makeup looked great.

Last but not least, I had to mention Halle Berry. I thought she looked Angelic 😉 in this dress below. I loved her whole look.

LIFT: Pre-Grammy Edition 2011

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

I’m getting ready to watch the Grammys, but I wanted to share these images I came across today (from the Pre-Grammy Gala and Salute to Industry Icons Honoring David Geffen). The Gala took place last night and Jennifer Hudson was on FIRE!!! She looks amazing in that dress. Her makeup is on point! I am feeling her whole look.

To create this look, I would use MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow on the lid and MAC Bronze eyeshadow in the crease, with a black liquid liner and false lashes. For the lips, I would use MAC Lady bug lipstick.

I really think Miley Cyrus stood out as well. Her makeup was natural but very flattering.

I also loved seeing Brandy and Monica together. They both looked great! Remember the song “The Boy is Mine”?
