When it comes to the complete look, Paula Patton is never an #epicfail. The COVERGIRL Queen Collection Ambassador was nothing short of a demure goddess channeling old Hollywood glamour at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty. We got the step-by-step makeup dish directly from Covergirl Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles.

Want Paula’s lovely look? Read on for the beauty beat!

After moisturizing  and prepping the lips with lip balm, Fiona used a Beauty Blender and synthetic foundation brush to apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Liquid Makeup in Rich Sand. Next, she added a little CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in Light where needed and a bit of COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Lush Berry on the apples of the cheeks with a dual fiber brush, then set both of those creamy products with COVERGIRL Professional Loose Powder and a bit of COVERGIRLl Queen Collection Natural Hue Pressed Powder Light Bronze. Fiona filled in Paula’s brows using COVERGIRL Brow & Eyemakers Pencil in Midnight Brown and brushed them into place.

On to the eyelids, Fiona used a primer on the lids to make sure that the shadow doesn’t budge. Then she used a wash of the COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Light Bronze & Brown Bronze from the lash line up towards the brow to add a little depth to the eye. Next Fiona lined the eyes with COVERGIRL LineBlast 24HR Eyeliner in Enduring Black, putting black liner in the waterline top and bottom. Fiona used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Truffle at the lashes so that there would be depth, but with a softer feeling than if it was rimmed in black. COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer was the bronzer of choice to line the inner corners of the eyes. Fiona used COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire at the outer corners to elongate the eye. Lots of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lash Fanatic Mascara in Black dramatized Paula’s complete look.

Finally, time for Paula’s sexy lips! Fiona lined Paula mouth with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lasting Lip Pencil in Rose to define the lips and add longevity to the lip color. Then she applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in Penelope Pink.

And like the perfect makeup artist, Fiona made sure Paula was strapped with blotting papers and lip color in her gorge clutch for touch-ups throughout the night!
