Sure, there’s a lot of buzz about the dresses on the red carpet (rightly so!), but what about all that beautiful makeup? For her gorgeous look, Sienna Miller tapped her longtime friend (and one of the best makeup artists around) Charlotte Tilbury. We asked Tilbury to share what it’s like behind the scenes getting ready for the red carpet at the Academy Awards. Here’s how she created the look (while the two rocked out to some Bob Dylan).

1.    Charlotte started with her Goddess skin clay mask, a product she says “is the key to shrinking pores and tightening the skin, leaving you with a perfectly dewy, plumped and revived red-carpet glow.”

2.    Magic Cream (Charlotte’s secret to red-carpet skin) and Wonderglow were applied to hydrate the skin and create a soft focus, which she says is “amazing for HDTV.”

3.    Next, Charlotte applied Light Wonder foundation in 6 medium and 7 medium, then the retoucher concealer in 2 fair under the eyes and 3 medium for the rest of Sienna’s face.

4.    Air Brush Flawless Finish powder in 1 fair and 2 medium was applied only to the T-zone to control shine while keeping from taking away from the dewiness on the rest of the skin.

5.    To enhance Sienna’s eyebrows, Charlotte used Brow Lift in Grace K and Cara D.

6.    Rock ‘n’ Kohl eye pencil in Bedroom Black and the Feline Flick quick fine line shodo pen were used over the lash line to dramatically define the eyes.

7.    Using her eye smudger brush, the Luxury eyeshadow palette in The Sophisticate and full fat lashes, Charlotte accentuated Sienna’s “winged” eyes, focusing on the crease and lash-line areas.

8.    To enhance the cheekbones, Charlotte applied Filmstar Bronze & Glow with the powder & sculpt brush, following the hollows of the cheeks and along the jawline with the bronzer and applying the highlighter shade to the top of the cheekbones.

9.    To further accentuate Sienna’s features, Beach Stick in Moon Beach and Ibiza were used to illuminate and sculpt.

10.  To prep the lips, Charlotte used Lip Love lip scrub and Lip Magic. Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillowtalk was applied to mimic the pigment of Sienna’s lips and filled in with K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Bitch Perfect.

11.  Last, for an allover glow, Charlotte applied Supermodel Body all over Sienna’s limbs.

“I love making women feel beautiful and empowered,” says Beauty Stylist Nadia Tyby at Nordstrom Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA. “And everything about make-up is about a feeling.” If, as the holiday season approaches, the feeling you’re going for is sparkly and bright, Tyby can help with that, too. The four-year Nordstrom beauty pro says she’s already got her favorite Adrianna Papell shimmering party dress primed for party duty, and she was more than happy to turn us on to the three top tools in her glitter bag.

 

For your face: “I am obsessed with beautiful luminating skin. Shimmer Brick by Bobbi Brown is a perfect balance of shimmer and radiance leaving the skin looking healthy and youthful.”

For your eyes: “Adorn your eyes by pressing perfectly sparkly Mac Pressed Pigments onto the lids. Totally dresses up any outfit. Feeling a little sassy? Before applying your shadow, Spray Fix Plus on to your shadow brush and then pack that pigment on!”

For your lips:Dior Golden Shock – Addict is pretty amazing. It’s lightweight and plumping, creating fuller luscious lips that say ‘kiss me.'”

Our beauty trend editor, Kate Fannin, loves Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics so much. Let her count the ways.

With Halloween right around the corner fun beauty products are a must, which is why I’m so excited that Nordstrom is now selling OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). Their Lip Tars are perfect for creating any color imaginable. Here are seven reasons to become obsessed…

1. Lip Tar: crazy name, awesome product. Use alone or MIX them to create your own ‘bespoke’ color—check out the Electric Orchid color I created. Tap into your creative side and let us know what you invent!

2. Color names include Captain Howdy, Pool Boy, Electric Sheep, and Leeloo (any reference to The Fifth Element instantly ups the cool factor).

3. The Lip Tar Primer is one of the best I’ve ever used. It melts into lips and has serious staying power to “grip” the Tars.

4. We spotted Lip Tars in use backstage during NYFW SS15. If they’re good enough for the pros, they’re good enough for me!

5. The Colour Pencils can be used as lip liner or eyeliner; I’m all about using the hot-pink color, Anime, as a night-out eyeliner.

6. There’s even a clear, anti-feathering pencil that keeps the Tars from wandering.

7. Who doesn’t love a brand name that validates beauty junkies everywhere? Obsessed? Check. Compulsive? Unashamedly so. Cosmetics? Obvi.

And that’s my take,
Kate

Circus performers, psychics, pop darling Lily Allen, So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley and Kim Kardashian looking positively radiant in the ‘Golden Goddess’ palette? Yes, it’s true: the Charlotte Tilbury VIP Launch Party on October 9 was a decadently gorgeous affair.

Held outside our store at The Grove in LA, Charlotte Tilbury’s Makeup Your Destiny Launch Party and two-day Beauty Festival was a carnival-themed extravaganza, including a Mesmerizing Eye Bar, a K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lip Bar and one-on-one ‘Tilbury Transformations’ with members of the British beauty maven’s varsity squad. 

The powerhouse turnout was no surprise, of course. You might recall that Tilbury crafted Amal Alamuddin’s makeup look—using the ‘Sophisticate’ eye palette and Chic to Cheek Blush in ‘Love Glow’—when Alamuddin married George Clooney. Her client list is star-studded. But devotees of the renowned expert’s holistic approach also appreciated the presence of notable naturopath Dr. Nigma, who demonstrated the incredible age-erasing capabilities of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult-status skincare line.

Our photo album is like a retroactive full-access pass. Enjoy!
