Anna Kendrick Arrives at the Oscars

Anna Kendrick was one of our best dressed this year at the Academy awards. The young 24 year old actress walked the red carpet in a flowing Elie Saab Haute Couture gown in pale pink. The color looked great with her brown loosely pulled back hair.

Anna Kendrick was nominated for best actress in a supporting role for her work in 'Up In The Air', playing Natalie Keener opposite George Clooney. Kendirck did not win in this category, but seemed happy for Monique who took home the Oscar.

Many of us know Anna Kendrick from her first major movie series, Twilight and New Moon. Anna played Jessica, the 'best friend' of Bella Swan (the main character).

Interested in how to get Anna's Oscar makeup look? The makeup was very light to go with her dress. First start with making your complexion flawless with some concealer and foundation. Add some highlighter to the cheekbones and just below the arch of the eyebrow. Then use Tarte coral cheek stain on the apples of cheeks.

Anna has a smokey eye effect. To achieve the eyes, line the upper lids with a black eyeliner, then carefully line the bottom lids as close as you can to the eye from the outter corners to about the centre of your eye. Use a dark grey shadow in the crease and along the lash line.

For the lips Ana used Tarte Lipsurgance Natural lip stain in Charmed with a little gloss on top.
