Make-up artist Scott Barnes has explained Catherine Zeta-Jones’ “dramatic” look at the Academy Awards.

The Welsh actress and her co-stars performed a number from 2002 movie Chicago at the event on Sunday, celebrating the film that won Catherine an Academy Award for best supporting actress.

Scott Barnes styled the brunette for the night, giving her a nude lip for the red carpet and a more striking look for her turn on stage.

“For her performance singing All that Jazz... I went in a completely different direction. (And how insane was that, by the way? It had been ten years since she had done that number for so many people.) I took the opportunity to use the drama of the situation to give Catherine a red lip, and I unleashed those big, bold eyebrows,” Scott explained to People magazine.

All That Jazz is a seductive number, allowing Catherine to channel her sultry Velma Kelly character from the movie.

Scott believes his clever styling helped her take on the role effectively.

“There’s a time and a face for every red lip. All that Jazz — the drama of the music, the short, black bob — was one of them. My red of choice for Catherine was M.A.C’s Ruby Woo, a generally universally flattering red lipstick,” he revealed.

“And when you watch her on TV — or from side stage, where I did — it’s really a striking look. I like to think it also helped her get into character a little bit. Make-up is great for helping you feel like a slightly different version of you.”

For her red-carpet appearance, Catherine wore a gorgeous gold dress by Zuhair Murad.

Scott explained he wanted the eyes to be the focus, but not to take attention away from her elaborate gown.

“To Catherine’s lids, I applied a taupe shadow, with a darker brown shadow in the crease. You’ll notice there’s absolutely nothing metallic about her look, which was very intentional. The face and dress are working together, not against one another. Everyone gets along!” he smiled.
