Oscar Makeup Trend: Smoky Eyes & Nude Lips

The Oscar red carpet was exciting, especially when Kate Hudson showed up and completely put most others to shame.  Well, in my book.  Piercingly defined, smoky eyes and nude lips seen first on Giuliana Rancic, then on celebs like Penelope Cruz, Sandra Bullock and Kate Hudson, was not only my favorite makeup trend, but also the most wearable seen tonight. It's sophisticated, glamorous and with the right tools, anyone can pull it off.  Here's all you need:

Smoky Eyes: The right tools are essential.

Eyeliner Sharpener  Your liner needs to be as precise as possible.  Fluff, Shadow Brush This has a rounded shape and is used to apply shadow to the lid.  Angled, Crease Brush This helps to get into that crease and contour the eye shape.  Blending Brush Blend and shade, blend and shade.

Nude Lips: Preparation is key.

 Lip scrub to remove any dead skin. Lip balm to moisturize.
