Want To Glow Like Jen And Kate? Oscar's Makeup Artist Says Great (Or Great Looking) Skin Is The Key

We had the pleasure of interviewing Emmy-nominated makeup artist Bruce Grayson yesterday – the one who ran the backstage goings-on at the Academy Awards (21 makeup artists! 19 hairdressers!) – and he let us in on how we mere mortals can get looks like the ones we saw on Sunday.

Bruce’s advice for getting red carpet glam at home is the same advice he gives the celebrities: it all starts with great skin. Getting your skin in shape weeks in advance is the key to looking as amazing as possible: facials, microdermabrasion, whatever it takes.

Bruce said he swears by Olay Definity Color Recaputre ($21) and Laura Mercier Secret Concealer ($22) to even skin tones and make skin look just flawless.

Bruce’s picks for best makeup on Oscar night? Jennifer Aniston’s look was one of his favorites, with the star going a little more glam than usual but still showing gorgeous, translucent skin and makeup. Other favorites included Kate Winslet’s pale beigy pink eye with a dramatic lip and Viola Davis’s gorgeous mauve-y purple lips.

“Oscars is about sheer simplicity," Bruce says. "It focuses on the eyes or the lips or the skin.”

As far as other makeup bag staples, he adores Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara ($7.65) and Cargo Blu-Ray Blush/Highlighter ($27). When it comes to lips, Bruce is mad for the new lip gloss/lipstick combination products that go on easy and leave lasting color with shine – one of his favorites right now is MAC Tinted Lipglass ($14).

Whether or not you include the red carpet and HDTV lighting is entirely up to you.
