When the curtain closes at the Oscars, the Vanity Fair After-Party is one of Hollywood’s most coveted invitations. The stars who walked the red carpet at the event exuded glamour, however, if we have to play favorites, one celebrity stood out among the rest: Barbie Ferreira.

Since her debut on the hit HBO series Euphoria, all eyes were on Ferreira and her jaw-dropping beauty looks. The actress and new U.S. Ambassador for YSL Beauty isn’t afraid to experiment with color, and last night was no exception.
Ferreira opted for Fendi this season, wearing a strapless silk dress with stripes in shades of golden yellow and an array of pinks. She paired the dress with smoldering makeup.
“For Barbie’s look, we wanted something to complement her post-holiday bronze,” says the makeup artist Kali Kennedy. The process is collaborative, adds Kennedy. “We always try to create a mood and tonight it was all about the sensuality of [YSL’s] Black Opium Scent.”
Ferreria’s soft, warm glow was paired with pink smoky eyes, fluttery lashes, and a high-shine lip gloss. To make Ferreira’s lashes stand out, Kennedy applied the Radical volumizing mascara before slipping Lash Clash Mascara for more volume. On the lids, a trio of shades from the Couture Color Clutch Palette– golden yellow, matte pink and golden brown – were applied to create a modern smokey eye.
Adding to the post-holiday glow, Kennedy tapped Nu Glow In Balm on the high points of Ferreira’s face “to add a little dew” to the skin before applying foundation. “I always recommend using a light touch,” says Kennedy. “I want to create a seamless, but raw look. You can always add more, but it’s much harder to take away.
To add depth and dimension to the star’s lips, Kennedy applied Slim Velvet Radical Matte Lipstick in Release Nude before topping it off with Rouge Volupté Candy Glaze Lip Gloss Stick in Sweet Pink for a high-powered glow.
