Tonight's the night that the Academy Awards are held in Hollywood….do you plan on tuning in?  I'll definitely be front and center watching Red Carpet coverage and picking up on the fashion and beauty trends.

  • CollegeCandy and Tarte Cosmetics have teamed up for a really fun Oscar® contest.

  • Celebrity makeup artist Christopher Drummond predicts that we'll see the smoky eye look, accented with a lot
    of shimmery metals:  bronze, gold, and silver. 
    Also on the eyes:  a focus
    on luxurious lashes and liner focused on the top on the eyes.  For skin, expect to see luminizers and shimmer on eyes and cheeks to
    help emphasize that "healthy" look. Christopher expects lips to be either bright red matte or nude and glossy. 
  • As you're watching the Oscar® telecast tonight, make sure to check out the Swarovski crystal curtain on the set of the Kodak Theatre.  Made up of over 100,000 Swarovski crystals in a variety of shapes and sizes
    flown in from Austria, the main curtain outlining the stage's grand
    arch will measure close to 60 feet tall and 100 feet wide and will
    include be comprised
    of over 6,000 one-meter hand-crafted crystal strands, weighing in
    at an incredible 6,000 pounds. Amazing!
