Oscar Spotlight: Heidi Klum

Here’s how the hair and makeup team created Heidi Klum’s stunning mod look…

“Hairstylist Helena Faccenda and Victoria’s Secret make-up artist Linda Hay used Victoria’s Secret So Sexy hair products and Very Sexy Make-up to create Heidi’s look.

Helena created a soft mod updo inspired by Faye Dunaway, circa 1968 Thomas Crown Affair. To get the this updo, Helena backcombed Heidi’s roots to give the hair a little lift. Hair was smoothed over with a soft tooth brush. To finish the look, hair was tied into a couture shaped ball at the crown of her head. “To complement Heidi’s amazing couture gown, I channeled Elegant Horst’s 60’s Vogue cover.”

As for the makeup, Linda focused on the eyes, the absence of color and a neutral lip.
The skin was sun-kissed with a beige/bronzy look from head to toe using a mix of Bare Bronze Gleaming Self Tan Tint and Daily Glow Moisturizer to her whole body and a light sweep of Ooh La La Shimmer Powder to line her legs, arms, and shoulders. For her face, Linda used tinted moisturizer to even out her complexion and a little concealer around the eyes and nose. A light dusting of translucent powder and Goddess Bronzer to shape and contour her face.

For the eyes, Linda used Black Velvet Eye Pencil to draw a very thin line on the top lash line. Then using the 2 lighter Charcoal colors in the Satisfied Eye Very Sexy Mosaic palette, she lightly smudged the pencil and drew in the crease. Linda used the white shadow in the Mosaic palette to highlight right under the brow line and a dot at the inside corner of the eye. Underneath, she also added a thin sweep of the lightest silver to gently define the eye. Next, she applied individual lashes to the top and bottom lashes and about four or five applications of Very Voluptuous Black Mascara for supreme definition. To make the eye pop even more, she used Sparkling White Eye Pencil.

The lips were kept matte. Linda ussed Ginger Spice to line her lips and filled them with a combination of Whisper and Spontaneous to finish the look.”
