Cameron Diaz's Red-Hot Oscar Look
As NeNe Leakes would say, I am often "tardy for the party." Which is why I knew I loved Cameron Diaz for a reason when she showed up to Oscar red carpet five seconds before Ryan Seacrest was wrapping up his E! coverage. When asked why she was so late Diaz, half joking and definitely half not, said she showed up late on purpose so she wouldn't have to talk to anyone. Zing! I love a girl who tells the truth and, let's be honest, probably a vast majority of the stars on the red carpet (with the exception of Miley Cyrus) would have loved to skip those interviews.
But I'm glad Diaz showed her face before the show started, because her Oscar makeup was absolutely flawless. And, as most flawless things in the world are, Chanel created it. "We took the Veronica Lake regal, smooth, classic Hollywood look and gave it a modern but glamorous twist. We kept the warmth and added a little edge," said makeup artist Robin Fredriksz. To get this look, Robin started off by applying CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Sand in the crease of the lids, and lining the entire eye with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir. To make Cameron's striking blue eyes pop even more, Robin applied several coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. As Cameron has loved a red lip lately, Robin lined her lips with CHANEL Lip Definer in Rouge, and applied the perfect true red lip shade CHANEL Rouge Coco in Gabrielle. She used the same shade of lip color as a blush, dabbing a bit on the apples of her cheeks. Cameron's nails were painted with CHANEL Nail Colour in Lotus Rouge, a flattering shade perfect for the red carpet.
