Vanity Fair's Oscar Beauty, Smells Like Oscar, YSL Beauty Quick. Beyonce's Makeup Artist does it Cheap & Chic with L'Oreal.

By Laura Medina

Smells like the Oscars at Vanity Fair's Social Club, Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb fragrance line, eponymously borne Viktor and Rolf BonBon (their version of the candied-ifed Angel) and their men's cologne, SpiceBomb.

The eponymously Flowerbomb was a refreshing explosion of bold florals of:  bergamot and green tea, intensive, sweet and pure Sambac jasmine, seductive Centifolia rose, freesia and Cattleya orchid. Musk and patchouli in a base.

As a wrapped candy, Bonbon Viktor&Rolf for women aims at women who celebrate the pleasure and self-indulgence, as well as moments of relaxation and enjoyment.  In a pink bottle shaped as a wrapped candy. Its composition is signed by Cecile Matton and Serge Majoullier. The key note is caramel, surrounded by aromas of mandarin, orange and peach at the top; flowers of orange blossom and jasmine in the heart; and cedar, guaiac wood, sandalwood and amber in the base. 

Dashing, debonair dudes aren't forgotten but needed to be focused on at the Oscars.  This is where they snap up Spicebomb Eau Fraiche Viktor&Rolf for men, featuring pink pepper, pepper, grapefruit, sea salt, lavender, elemi resin and tobacco.

YSL Beauté makeup artist Dell Ashley did a "Bim, Bam, Boom" makeover using slicks and swipes, using three different shades of TOUCHE ÉCLAT SLOGAN EDITION.  The basis is #2 No Need To Sleep TOUCHE ÉCLAT classic concealer for all-over blemish banning.  Then, he used the lighter #1 I Am Not a Morning Person as all-natural highlighter to widen the eyelids and the top cheekbones.  To contour, he sculpture the cheekbones and deepen the creases in the eyelids with #3 All Lights on Me.

No mere lip balm would do, it's the lush YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick in #49 Rose Saint Germain and Rouge Volupte Shine #9 Nude.

Any Awards Season Week is an ideal time and place to launch brand new products to "awe, woo, and swoon" influential stars who need the best and the newest to hit the stage that night.

Vanity Fair's Beauty Lounge is no different.

They're people, too.  They, too, what makeup that's affordable and approachable and ready to snap up in a pinch...L'Oreal did very well here.

L'Oreal's RevitaLift® Anti-Wrinkle + Firming SPF 30 Day Lotion is what makeup artist pat oncolleté for those strapless, low-cut, plunging neckline, and strappy eveninggowns baring a lot of skin under the glare of the hot lights and hot sunlight.

Beyonce's current makeup artist and new L'Oréal Paris celebrity makeup artist Sir John Barnett went on to discuss in depth how an Art student like he went on to doing Beyonce's Super Bowl makeup (he used and mixed cream to match the rosy-dusty-bronzy sunset for her eyes) then how he did Viola Davis's makeup for the cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue.

He knows how stressful Oscar's red carpet can be and that you need everything packed into a teensy-tiny clutch.

The makeup you pack in your clutch is what he calls "Emergency Fire Drill" makeup.  You can need L'Oreal Voluminous® Butterfly Mascara because the wand "tight lines" your lashes without infecting the rims of your eyelids.

L'Oreal's tough but fabulous Infallible® Pro-Matte Gloss can double as creamy, pigment-intense lip gloss that doesn't fade while doubling as a creamy liquid cream blush that doesn't clog facial pores.  A clutch essential.

If air-kissing then sipping cocktails and munching on burger sliders is your thing, you can't go wrong with L'Oreal's Infallible® Pro-Last Lipcolor.  Slick on the High Intensity Color for true color pay-off that resists transfer, fading & bleeding then top it off with Pro-Seal Balm to lock in color and leave lips feeling moisturized. 

This scribe swears by this friendly but tough lip color.  After downing a My Father's Office burger and shoestring fries for lunch, the lip color is still there, without disappearing or peeling and it's still moist.  This is foodie makeup, right there my foodie friends. 

This is what Oscar party-goer wore to the Oscar Sunday.
