LORAC Cosmetics founder Carol Shaw used a selection of her company’s celeb-loved products to create an “Ann-Margret-meets-Barbarella” look for Debra Messing’s red carpet stroll. She created a base using Breakthrough Performance Foundation in SMS 3, $38, and Undercover Lover concealer in UL 2 patted beneath her eyes, then lightly dusted her skin with Translucent Touch Up Powder in TL 2, $32. To create smouldering eyes, Shaw premiered LORAC’s Best Dressed palette, which will be available for purchase after the Oscars. She started with a warm pearl highlighter under brow bone, and gold at the corner of each eye. Shaw swept a coppery hue over the over her entire upper lid and taupy-brown in the crease. She finished with Eye Shadow in Dark Brown, $16, smudged over whole lid and under the lower lashes, then rimmed the inner lid with LORAC Pencil for Eyes in #01 Dark Brown, $12. Visual Effects Mascara in Jet Black, $20 completed the eyes. Next, Shaw brushed Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder, $32 over Debra’s cheeks, touching lightly on the bridge of the nose and chin to create a glow. Hot & Spicy Cheek Duo Blush/Bronzer, $29, to give Debra a peachy, sun-kissed look. She kept Debra’s lips neutral by shaping them with Pencil for Lips in #18 Light Rosy Nude, $12, then filling in with Co-Stars Lip Color and Ultra Glossy Top Coat in French Kiss, $19. The final pro touch was TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer, $30, which gave Debra’s body a red-carpet-worthy glow.

And while with a little attention, you can recreate Debra’s makeup look at home, her bouncy gorgeous locks sadly might prove to be a bit more of a challenge. The genetically-gifted redhead gave credit where credit was due, revealing on the red carpet, “This is really my natural hair, with just a little bit of curling iron.”
