How-To: Freida Pinto's Makeup at the 2009 Oscars

I have a feeling the beautiful Freida Pinto could walk onto the red carpet wearing clown makeup and still take my breath away, but her Oscars makeup was incredibly flattering.

  • Skin: Use a mineral powder foundation to cover complexion imperfections. (Paul used Diorskin Nude in Honey Beige). Sweep a powder highlighter along cheekbones. Freida wore Diorskin Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond.
