A staggering Angelina Jolie gravitated down the red carpet this year at the 2012 Academy Awards, glinting an luminescent presence of beauty against the camera’s blinding flashes. The Hollywood actress wore one of the best-dressed this year, in a stunning, black-velvet Atelier Versace gown, which featured a thigh-high slit. She paired the gown with black, peep-top pumps and finished the look with her signature sultry waves and predominantly classic makeup, yet tweaked with a bodacious contemporary look.
Napoleon Perdis has released this seasons Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup looks, for the David Jones Autumn/Winter 2012 Fashion Launch. Look Two – Metalika is based around current colour’s which play both heavy and soft metal hues to the eyes and lips. Angie models this look well at the Oscars with glamorous, intense neutral shines. Contrasted with enhancements under the cheekbone to identify a natural strength, and brighten the eye with lessening tones and shades.

This look welcomes inspiration with soft and predominant tones.
