The 87th Academy Awards have surely been a feast for the eyes of fashion lovers all around the world. During the red carpet and the ceremony, Internet was flooded with pictures and comments published in real time, but most of the times what happened behind the scenes was more interesting than what everybody got to see on tv. Thank God for Instagram, where stylists, manicurists, make-up artists and hair-stylists posted pictures of the routine celebrities went through before wowing the world with their fantastic looks.
I was particularly intrigued by the account of Elaine Offers, who did the make-up of Julianne Moore. The American actress (who wore a Chanel Haute Couture custom-made dress) won the Oscar as Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Still Alice by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. She looked gorgeous, but who knew Offers did her make-up using L’Oreal Paris products only? Yay for budget beauty!
On her dressing table I spotted Infallible Pro-Matte liquid foundation and powder, Visible Lift Blur blush and Color Lift blush, Colour Riche balm and Infallible Le Rouge lipstick, Revitalift Moisture Blur anti-aging moisturizer, Age Perfect Cell Renewal advanced restoring golden serum and Color Riche Dual Effects eyeshadow palette in Rose Nude. Julianne is one of the ambassadors and testimonial of L’Oreal Paris, but she could use make-up and skincare of any high-end brand, so it’s nice to see she actually wears the products she advertises.
Here is a beautiful shot of Elaine putting some mascara on Julianne. I guess this happened moments before she left for the Dolby Theatre. Exciting, isn’t it?
