red carpet ready for the oscars: beauty news.

i've been getting so many emails about the oscars you would think i was getting an award (i so am not). after finally sorting it all out, i bring you the highlights of oscar red carpet beauty prep and news.

heidi klum seems to be the busiest bee in the business this week. yesterday she and victoria's secret makeup artist linda hay teamed up to talk about the best kept style and beauty secrets in hollywood. she has also worked with victoria's secret to create a diamond pendant gift for the best actress nominees and is working with diet coke as the spokeswoman for the red dress campaign to raise heart disease awareness amongst women.

i was lucky enough to submit a question to linda hay for my readers, and here it is:

what steps are taken so that red carpet makeup stays intact for several hours?

her response:
start with an oil-free moisturizer so you don't get too shiny as the night wears on. i like the sheer foundations and concealers from very sexy makeup, which don't cake and flake, and allow skin to breathe. to make your eye makeup last, make sure you apply liner and shadow after you've prepared the eye with a light touch of concealer and powder so the color will set and adhere longer. when you're at the event, make sure to check your makeup every hour. if you have limited room in your evening bag, take beauty rush blotting sheets, a powder compact with mirror, a small blush brush to apply powder, and your very sexy lip gloss or lipstick of choice so you're armed with the necessities to keep your makeup sexy and glamorous all night long.

l'oreal has created a special limited edition version of their infalliable never fail lipcolour in red carpet red to commemorate the evening. available only in february 2008, at lorealparis.com and l'oreal boutiques, $11.99.

in the paradoxical topic of men's beauty (kidding), emerging star and man who rivals the boyfriend in charm, john krasinski (jim from the office) is a devotee of zirh men's skincare.

and who's getting ready for the big night where:
linda evangelista and mark wahlberg both have appointments at ole henriksen for facials. and finally, fekkai products and stylists will be used to prep marion cotillard and jen garner.
