Angelina Jolie‘s right leg made a splash at the 2012 Oscars, but we think her perfect red lipstick really stole the spotlight! That’s why we caught up with her makeup artist Toni Garavaglia to get the inside scoop on her look. “We wanted to balance Angelina’s makeup with her elegant Atelier Versace dress,” she told InStyle.com exclusively. “We decided that a red lip paired with a soft, clean smoky eye was the way to go.” Garavaglia lightly applied Jolie’s eye shadow, added a dash of liquid liner, then pulled the entire look together with a generous sweep of MAC’s Russian Red lipstick, a true cherry with blue undertones.
