Get An Oscar-Worthy Look on a Budget
Beauty icon Jennifer Garner looked stunning at the Oscars on Sunday. But doesn't she always? She's such a graceful persona, both on screen and off, and I can just imagine her as a natural mom, going to the park with her kids in jeans and a t-shirt (and very little make-up). But when it's Oscar night, it's time to pull out all the stops. Jennifer's makeup looked nothing short of flawless and lovely.
Here are a few tips from celebrity makeup artist and Neutrogena Cosmetics Science Expert, Matin, on how to achieve Jennifer’s look at home, without spending a fortune on cosmetics:
First off, Matin recommends priming the skin by using a light-weight oil-free moisturizer to set your foundation. For a foundation that will enable you to achieve Jennifer’s flawless, even look, try a sheer mineral foundation. Matin recommends Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation from Neutrogena. It creates a perfect matte finish while providing time-released antioxidants and SPF to help improve the clarity, tone and texture of your skin. To create Jennifer’s intense eyes, Matin recommends the new Neutrogena's Healthy Volume Mascara in Carbon Black to increase lash volume by up to 400%. To finish off the look, apply a glossy pink lip color with a touch of shine.
