Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. -Thoreau



gab-241x300-7466880 My pal, makeup artist Toby Fleischman is so super talented. It was her incredible work on Evan Rachel Wood that caught my eye a while back. She did an amazing smokey eye highlighted  with gold and flawless skin that was breathtaking.

Toby just finished touring with Mariah Carey and she probably didn’t even unpack her suitcases before she was called to do Gabourey Sidibe’s makeup for the Oscars.

It was Toby who Gabby and I talked about when I met her at the Independent Spirit Film awards. Toby’s a genius with a makeup brush and Gabby totally gushed about her.

Today Toby sent me a note detailing what she used on Gabby, an exlcusive scoop, if you will!  Here are the details-

“It was Gabby’s big night after a long 14 month promotion of “Precious” so we really wanted it to be all about her. After seeing the magnificent Marchesa gown, it was an easy choice as to what her make up look should be – keep it simple and toned down so she could shine with her amazing spirit and beauty.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid keeps Gabby’s skin looking creamy and gorgeous and it’s matte quality works to keep the shine down. We wanted a soft metallic eye to pick up the jeweled accents on the dress. Starting with Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Liner in Black, I smudged it into her lashline for a glamorous lash look. Next I covered the entire lid in CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast stick in Bronze. A touch of CoverGirl Eye Enhancer Shadow in Tapestry Taupe set the bronze cream stick and added that hint of metallic we wanted to achieve. Keeping the rest of her face soft, Nars Blush in Lovejoy gave her a bronzy glow. Estee Lauder Tiger Eye Lipstick completed the look adding a touch of Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Gold Spun to pick up the light. The best part about Gabby’s red carpet look – seeing her mega watt smile when she saw herself in the mirror! Stunning!”
