While we were obsessed with the frocks (check out our gallery and style report of dresses here) we were also busy gushing over the brightest beauty looks to hit the Oscars red carpet.
Hair-wise, our favourites included Rose Byrne and Rooney Mara’s fringe and nude lips on Emma Stone and Natalie Portman but we often wonder what makes a Hollywood star’s skin glow for their red carpet moment.
The answer? St Tropez appaz! The tan brand had a beauty suite at the Oscars where they ensured gorgeous celebrity skin to compliment the amazing gowns and hair. So, we got the lowdown from St Tropez for three looks of the night; Penelope Cruz, Kim Kardashian and Kelly Osbourne.
Matthew Van Leeuwen wanted to give her a bronzed glow with a modest shimmer to compliment her elegant, sophisticated Oscar look.
“I combined an equal amount of the St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion with the St. Tropez Rose Skin Illuminator and applied it all over her upper body. Next, I dusted the St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks over her shoulders, back and décolletage to finish it off.”
Products used: St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion, St. Tropez Rose Skin Illuminator and St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks.
In true Kardashian style, Kim wanted a dramatic colour to compliment the glamorous and sexy red carpet look she was channeling.
“Kim has such a beautiful dark tone to her skin already I wanted to enhance it even further with St. Tropez dark tanning mist. So, Fiona Locke of St Tropez took it to the next level and showed off her beautiful bone structure with added contouring.
Products used: St. Tropez Skin Finishing Treatment. Get this look at home using St. Tropez Dark Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and Applicator Mitt (€27.89).
Tanning expert Fiona Locke also created Kelly Osbourne’s “Pastel Tan” to compliment her Badgely Mischka vintage dress.
“Kelly is such a chameleon she can wear any look on her skin. I gave her the Pastel Tan with an added boost of colour. This allowed her to choose any colour gown and gave her the feeling of confidence “.
