GET THE LOOK: (Eco) Oscars 2012

On the most glamorous eve in Hollywood, we noticed that the beauty looks were fresh with only the slightest splash of color (except for Angelina's striking red lips, of course). In true let-your-natural-beauty-shine-through style, our favorite eco-celebs proved that less is more and that it's all about highlighting your best features. To replicate this, we thought we'd round up their beauty looks and make them simple so that you can achieve them yourself.

To start, make sure your skin is cleansed (Argan Cleansing Oil), nourished (100% Pure Argan Oil), and protected (Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40+). Lightly apply your shade of Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation and dust your T-zone with our Argan Pressed Powder in Natural. This will leave you with a clean palette and your skin will stay soft and supple all day. 

1. Cameron: Ms. Diaz was a blushing beauty in shades of pink on her cheeks and lips. To get the look, smile and the apply our Argan Color Stick in Petal Pink to the apples of your cheeks. Stain your lip with our Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Jitterbug and then apply a thin coat of Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Precious for a soft sheen. Keep your eye makeup simple by lining your eyes with Eye Liner in Black and then applying a coat of GOGO Mascara on both the upper and lower eyelashes

2. Natalie: Letting the ruby red of her dress take center stage, Ms. Portman kept her makeup soft in hues of dusty rose. Get her subtle look by highlighting your eyelids in shades of brown (we recommend our Argan Beautiful Eyes in Beautiful Nudes), lining the upper lid with our Argan Magic Marker Liquid Eye Liner, followed by a coat of GOGO Mascara. Then use Argan Color Stick in Rosey on your cheeks and our Magic Marker Lip and Cheek Stain in Waltz on your lips. Finally, apply a coat of Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Voluptuous.

3. Penelope: A sparkling ocean blue dress meant that Ms. Cruz needed a beauty look that was classic and simple. She kept it clean by sticking to earthy and neutral shades. First, define your eyes as detailed in Natalie's look, making sure to keep the eyeliner defined on the upper lid and blended on the bottom. Follow with our Argan Cream Blush in Sunset. Finish the look by applying our Lip Liner in Peach to your entire pout, followed by Argan Natural Volume Lip Gloss in Happy for a little shine.

4. Gwyneth: With a dazzling bright white dress, Ms. Paltrow stuck to bronzed shades for her face. Define your eyes like the looks above, using Argan Eye Shadow in Embrace and Maple to draw attention to your lids. For a sunkissed glow, use Argan Bronzing Powder in Beach No. 1 on your cheeks. Finish with our Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Mambo and a top coat of Argan Lip Gloss in Confession.


ECO STYLE: Stella McCartney

Ms. Stella McCartney, queen of eco fashion, truly understand luxury and conscience. Her empire has been built on innovative and gorgeous design that is cruelty-free. And since she's beautifully dressed many forward-minded celebs in her gowns, I'm excited to see what she comes up with for this year's Oscars! Her avant garde take on the fashion show for Fall 2012 only proves how unique she is and I'm sure her frocks will be festive and fabulous. Stay tuned!
