Viola Davis at the Oscars 2012

Her performance in The Help moved me beyond compare.  I must admit that I was ever so disappointed when she lost the Best Actress award at this years Oscars (if you are going to loose to anyone, Meryl Streep is the way to go!).

Viola Davis impressed me even more on Sunday when she confidently walked down the red carpet with her hair au natural.  She looked radiant, and glowed with self  assurance. It has been widely reported that her husband encouraged her to strut her natural hair down the red carpet, and I am so glad he did.

Her makeup look was equally elegant.  She matched her emerald green gown with similar eye colors, bronzed skin, and nude, glossy lips.  Here are my suggestions on how to recreate her look below:

Sue Devitt Glow Kit:

–  Includes: Tinted Body Moisturizer, which is oil-free and leaves your skin completely refreshed and rejuvenated with a healthy, bronzed glow.

– Eye Intensifier Pencil in Tanzania: stunning bronze eyeliner to smoke out the lid

– Bronze lip gloss

 Laura Mercier Bronzing Duo: 

-A set of two bronzing powder hues.
