Oscar Red Carpet Beauty Prediction & Hot Makeup Tips Too!
I’ve got my Swarovski crystal turban on and I am making some beauty predictions.
Can you picture me?
When it comes to Oscar red carpet beauty this Sunday, you can expect to see a makeup throwback to the 1920′s with clean fresh skin spotlighted just the right way.
I guarantee that big dark eyes, double sets of false lashes, and blood red lips will dominate the Oscar red carpet beauty looks.
Highlighters used on the bridge of the nose and the crest of the cheekbone focus über brilliant attention, and you know those stars love attention. So should you.
I like the Yves Saint Laurent Radiant Touch Touche Éclat to highlight. Are you aware that YSL says that every 10 seconds one Yves Saint Laurent Radiant Touch Touche Éclat is sold somewhere in the world? Wild.
Why the reason to elevate the look this year to a sophisticated streamlined 1920′s glam, you ask?
Simply put, in times of great hardship, Americans can step out of their own life and escape into the shoes of a Hollywood star! And, one of the chicest and trendsetting Hollywood stars, is Oscar nominated Rooney Mara, pictured here.
Plus, the capitulation of the Oscar-nominated silent movie The Artist and the adorableness of its star Berenice Bejo, solidify the infatuation with the 1920′s.
As for your hot makeup tip: YSL has come out with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre, a lip stain that’s also a gloss. It is beyond amazing you can eat drink and still be red carpet perfect… now, that’s a tip worth sharing!–Brad Boles

Brad Boles landed in New York in the early eighties at the height of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and worked his way up the make-up artist ladder to fame with his work being featured on the cover's of countless fashion magazines, as well as editorial spreads. MTV was his playground working with the most celebrated artists of the time from Pat Benatar to Grace Jones.
When Hollywood came calling, he landed his first film doing Kim Cattrall’s make-up and went on to work with Reese Witherspoon, Gina Gershon, Sandra Bernhard, Karen Black, Billy Zane, Andrew McCarthy and more.
Brad was the creative director for Denise Rich for 12 years as her stylist and make-up artist, as well as designing her legendary parties for such luminaries as President Clinton, Patti Labelle, Natelie Cole, and Richard Avedon.
Later, Brad opened a store of exotic interiors in NYC in 2002 and then opened a store in Moscow! Brad also designed the Zarin Fabrics showroom with Jill Zarin thus leading to being on the “The Real Housewives of New York City” seen as Jill Zarin's gay husband. Brad is currently working globally on interior projects and has been busy doing interiors in New York City, The Hamptons, Moscow, Morocco, and Dubai.
He has shot the pilot for his own TV show produced by Nancy Glass Productions. Look for his coffee table book, "The Art of Extravagant Luxury" coming soon. Brad and Sharon Haver are developing a style book and series.
