Celebrity makeup artist, Carissa Ferreri, gave us an exclusive look into Best Actress Nominee, Yalitza Aparicio’s, makeup.

Attending the Oscars alone is a major moment, but being a nominee for your first ever motion picture is even more exciting. Aparicio is the first indigenous women to be nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for Roma. Her red carpet look included a peachy lip, soft light eye, and glowing skin. Carissa Ferreri shared her inspiration behind the makeup look.

“My inspiration for Yalitza’s look was spring. Her dress is a beautiful mint color and I wanted to do something fresh and soft with apricot and peach colors,” said Ferreri. “I do a lot of skin prep before starting on the makeup as it’s essential to begin a beauty look with a clean and smooth canvas.”

Carissa made sure to use 100%  vegan skincare and makeup from the botanically based, cruelty-free beauty brand Arbonne.

We loved the vibrant yet soft look. You can follow Yalitza Aparicio and Carissa Ferrari on Instagram.
