Halle Berry looked amazing as a presenter at the Feb. 27 Oscars– here are her secrets!

Halle Berry is definitely one of those stars who looks amazing without makeup, but she looks pretty incredible with it, too! Celebrity makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua created a stunning look for Halle, which was “inspired by the lightness and shimmer of her Marchesa nude crystal and tulle strapless gown.”

Here are some tips from Kara on how to create this show-stopping look!

  • “We played up her eyes with warm browns instead of blacks.” Kara used Revlon Luxurious Color Satin Eyeshadow in Shimmering Sienna.
  • “I wanted to keep the eyes shimmery and soft-edged while defining them by smoking them up and lining the inner eye.” She used Revlon Luxurious Smoky Eye Pencil in Bronze Smoke and Revlon Custom Eyes Mascara in Black.
  • “To balance out the smoky eye but still keep her look healthy and fresh, I used peaches that are soft enough yet with enough color.” She applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Horizon, a warm peach shade, on Halle’s cheeks.
  • “I lined her lips with a peach tone that has just enough brightness and definition.” She used CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Peche, then added CHANEL Glossimer in Petit Peche on top.
