Yalitza Aparicio Oscars Beauty Look

Team TME just got the backstage beauty breakdown for this year's belle of the ball! Right from Celebrity Makeup Artist Carissa Ferreri, the master behind the makeup for Best Actress nominee Yalitza Aparicio, star of Roma and we're sharing it with you! This is an exciting moment for Yalitza (and let’s face it, all of us) – She’s the first Indigenous woman nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award. Her glam – a peachy lip, soft light eye and glowy skin– definitely accentuates this power moment!

Inspiration: My inspiration for Yalitza’s look was spring. Her (Rodarte) dress is a beautiful mint color and I wanted to do something fresh and soft with apricot and peach colors. ~ Carissa Ferreri

Skin: I do a lot of skin prep before starting on the makeup as it’s essential to begin a beauty look with a clean and smooth canvas. For Yalitza, I started with a mini facial using Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser and mixing it with the RE9 Advanced Prepwork Cleansing Polish to really exfoliate and leave the skin looking fresh and bright.

Next, I used the RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner to refresh the skin and add radiance. I love that it comes in a spray bottle with a light mist so I sprayed it on my sponge and applied it to her skin. Then I used the RE9 Advanced Intensive Renewal Serum, followed by the RE9 Advanced Prepwork Hydrating Dew Cream to hold in moisture. The last step was to add the RE9 Advanced Prepwork Gel Eye Masks to soothe and cool the under eye.

Eyes and Brows:  After skincare, I always move on to eyebrows and eyes so the products have time to work and penetrate the skin (I left the gel eye masks on the eyes throughout this process). I love a really fluffy and sculpted eyebrow so I applied the Shape It Up Brow Pencil in Dark and added the Eyebrow Gel to gives the brows more life.

For eyes, I wanted to do a very springy fresh and peachy look. Almost like a monochromatic look, so everything flowed nicely together. I used It’s All In The Eyes Volume 1 Palette and applied the shades Carroway and Clove for the crease and diffused any harsh lines. For the lids, I used It’s All In The Eyes Volume 2 Palette and applied the shades Opal and Prism, which is a beautiful peach color with gold undertones. This combination gave the exact peachy color I was looking for. I added a light touch of the It’s A Fine Line Pencil Eye Liner in Carob to the bottom lash line, leaving the top lash line bare.

Face and Body: For the face, I started with the Makeup Primer and followed that with the Perfecting Liquid Foundation in Golden Bronze. To mattify, I added the Got You Covered MineralPowder Foundation SPF 15 Sunscreen in Bronze which I applied to the center of her face to remove any shine.

For concealer, I mixed The Real Conceal Liquid Concealer in the shades Tan and Dark to brighten the under eye.

For cheeks, I applied Blush in the shades Blossom and Apricot to give a nice warm glow.

I applied Bronzer to the perimeter of her face and forehead to add dimension. I also applied the Bronzer to her cheekbones and brought it down to her shoulder to because it added such a pretty glow.

Body, I used the Intelligence Nourishing Facial Oil on her neck, shoulders and arms which hydrated and mattified the skin with a nice subtle glow.

Then I used the shade Moonstone from the Starlight Glow Palette and I used the shades Stardust and Twilight on her body, collar bone shoulders

Lips: I finished the look with a peachy lip. I used the Smoothed Over Lipstick in the shades Lily and Zinnia which left a lovely peachy finish.

Carissa used 100% clean, high-performance vegan skincare and makeup from the botanically based, cruelty-free beauty brand Arbonne!

Celebrate National Lipstick Day 2017 With TME Picks

Saturday, July 29 is National Lipstick Day and in the words of Elizabeth Taylor, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” Okay, well you may not want to pour yourself a drink just yet, but you may want to pucker up that pretty pout and put on some lipstick. After all, we know that lipstick is one of the easiest ways to change up our look or change up a sour mood -- TME’s editor is infamously known for whipping out a tube and shoving it at anyone who isn’t in the greatest spirits … as usual we digress.

In celebration of National Lipstick Day 2017, Team TME has picked a few of our favorite lipstick brands and shades to share with our readers, along with a few fun lipstick facts. Did you know that lipstick has been around for about 5,000 years? Ancient Sumerian men and women crushed gems mixed with tar and decorated their lips. In the US 900 million tubes of lipstick are sold each year and 80 percent of women state that they wouldn’t walk out the front door sans lipstick!

Mehron's L.I.P Cream ($7.95) combines a luscious hydrating lip formulation with intense artist inspired pigmentation. The effect leaves lips looking luxurious, creamy and conditioned with dramatic color that lasts all day and night.

jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick ($25) vivid pigments blend with nourishing natural oils and super fruit extracts for petal soft lips that feel, look and taste amazing. The 24 versatile shades dress the lips with high-impact color and sumptuous depth. The continuously creamy, rich and smooth formula glides on easily for long-lasting hold.

INGLOT Diamond Lip Tint ($18) is a super long-lasting liquid lipstick with a strong metallic gleam. Thanks to its delicate argan oil infused formula, it keeps lips conditioned and moisturized while providing extreme shine and a smooth finish. Diamond Lip Tint provides ultimate coverage and a fuller look to the lips.

Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick in Lily ($29) - For that peachy keen look we crave this summer, try this creamy lip color with a lush, velvety texture that delivers long-lasting hydration – providing the coverage of a lipstick with the nourishing properties of a lip balm. Did we mention it's made with watermelon and apple extracts? Yum!

LORAC Alter Ego Hydrating Lip Stain ($19) - This sexy and playful stain coat your lips in highly- pigmented color and hydrates with nourishing Jojoba Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Shea Butter and Mango Seed Butter for all day pigment, shine and hydration.

Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick ($10) - A full color, 100% vegan, hydrating natural lipstick that lasts with intensity, like the deepest love. Creamy hydration, highly pigmented, and chocked full of anti-aging benefits that nourish and love your lips.

Serge Lutens Fàrd a Lèvres Lipstick ($75) - The unique formula features argan oil to preserve moisture and reflect light, giving the lips a glossy finish while concealing fine lines. Bright colors create a fresh springtime look. (L to R - N°14 -Notre-Dame du Rose and N°15 360 Volts).

Well, there you have it. Now that you’ve perused our picks, and hopefully you’ve find one that you love, you can take a “lipstick run” to your favorite cosmetics counter or ULTA or Sephora … you can even find a few of our suggestions at your local drugstore! 

~xo Happy National Lipstick Day!
