Gwyneth Paltrow's Oscar look revealed

Gwyneth Paltrow sported an "elegantly bronzed" look on the Oscars red carpet, says her make-up artist.

The actress dazzled at the 84th Annual Academy Awards in a chic caped Tom Ford gown and minimal accessories. Gwyneth worked with beauty professional Leslie Lopez to achieve her stunning make-up.

Leslie explained she wanted to create a look that "complemented the dress and was still sophisticated enough for the red carpet," describing it as "elegantly bronzed".

According to website Beauty High, the make-up artist started with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in order to give Gwyneth a "dewy base". She then created a radiant glow with Super Orgasm Illuminator on the "apples of her cheeks".

For the eyes, Leslie applied Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on the eyelid for a "pop of gold colour". She then added Maybelline's brown liquid eyeliner in the lash line.

She finished the overall look with NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and used a slick of gloss on Gwyneth's pout.

Meanwhile, hairstylist Adir Abergel created a "sleek and modern interpretation of the low-nape ponytail."

He prepped Gwyneth's hair with Fekkai Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm from the roots to ends of her damp hair.

He then created a deep side parting using a comb and blow dried the hair without a brush, making sure to "keep the part and desired shape to the hair."

Adir then flat ironed the hair until it was "completely smooth" and pulled the hair back into a low ponytail.

The hair professional chose to allow the elastic hairbands to show as he wanted to give Gwyneth's tresses a bit of "raw edge".
