Camila Alves looked stunning as usual on the Oscar red carpet, on the arm of husband and lead actor nominee Matthew McConaughey. Her beauty look is a blend of warm, golden tones, something her makeup artist Patrick de Fontbrune calls “classic Hollywood with a modern twist.”

De Fontbrune prepped the model and designer’s complexion with vbeauté Undercover Agent Anti-Wrinkle Protecting Serum and dabbed vbeauté Eye Never Anti-Aging Eye Cream all around her eye area.

He eschewed foundation, using just a light coverage tinted moisturizer for a natural, sheer glow, and then applied Votre Vu Belle Poudre in Golden Medium over the T-zone and eyelids, for a shimmery gold finish and to help her makeup stay put through the rain and humidity.

Her lightly flushed cheek color came from a dust of Votre Vu’s Vu-On Rouge in Amourette (available in Summer 2014) and her chiseled cheekbones can be credited to a mix of great genes and a Votru Vu bronzer, which the makeup artist applied all over the face and used to sculpt and shade her features.

Lastly, De Fontbrune lined and filled in Alves’ lips with Votre Vu’s Drawmatic Lip Liner in Naked and then finished off the entire look with Votre Vu’s French Kiss.
