Natural makeup features heavily at Oscars

Natural makeup and nude looks featured heavily at last night's Oscars, with plenty of stars going for silvery, shimmery gowns and faces to match.

Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren chose to wear silver, while Amanda Seyfriend and Jennifer Lopez opted for white. Miley Cirus and Demi Moore selected buff-coloured gowns.

Zoe Saldana was one of the stars who perfected the natural makeup look, teaming it with her champagne and purple-hued Givenchy dress.

'We wanted to give her the sexy, sophisticated look, but fresh,' makeup artist Vera Steimberg told the LA Times.

'So I concentrated more on her eyes and her skin, keeping colours neutral for the lips and cheeks,' she added.

Ms Steimberg said that she did not use too much concealer and foundation as she wanted her 'skin to show and glow'.

She used a skin illuminator to make Ms Saldana's cheekbones really stand out and matched it with a muted pink lip colour.
