Though she always looks stunning, Oscar winning actress Laura Dern really brought out her A game on the Academy Awards red carpet last night. If you thought she looked especially luminous, you're right! Certainly part of that is thanks to good genes, but she also collaborated with celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass to get her ready for the biggest night of award season. And that meant using a special lip plumping red carpet secret: the NuFACE Fix.
"NuFACE Fix is the perfect way to prep the lips for a red-carpet-ready pout," Bass tells E! News exclusively. "The microcurrent technology creates fuller-looking lips without needles and smooths fine lines in just a few minutes!"
In addition to using the NuFACE Fix to get Dern's pucker into perfect shape, she also used the NuFACE Trinity to prep her skin for a night of spotlight-ready makeup. The result was a beautifully fresh-faced look that stole the spotlight from anyone else who stood near Dern's orbit!

Dern's skin was prepped and lifted with microcurrent using NuFACE's Trinity Facial Toning Device to firm, smooth and tighten the appearance in just a few minutes. It's an award-winner itself, designed with interchangable treatment attachments and clinically tested to improve facial contour, tone and reduce wrinkles with visible results in just five minutes a day.
Bass then used the NuFACE Fix Line Smoothing Device, which targets the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips within three minutes. It can firm, smooth and tighten the look of skin, especially when you use the "feathering" technique, a quick erasing motion that can diminish fine lines. It can also be used around the eyes and on the forehead.
Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer
Then, it was on to the makeup! Bass started with this hydrating primer, known to boost radiance and blur the look of imperfections. The hydration comes courtesy of ingredients such as shea butter, rice bran, and glycerin, which also smooths and softens the skin.
Armani Beauty Neo Nude Fusion Powder
Bass then set Dern's face with this finishing powder, giving the finished look of a luminous liquid foundation with the clean application of a compact with high-performance and advanced pigments that make for a weightless, skin-matching veil that lasts all night long.
Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil
"Then, I lined top and bottom lash lines with Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in 8, keeping the line thicker and well blended on the outer corners for a smoky elongated effect," Bass says. The pencil's formula is silky soft and easy to apply, whether you want a smoky look, or something more precise.
Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Lip Pencil
Now to finish off those freshly-plumped lips! Bass lined Dern's lips with this soft lip pencil in shade 2 to give her lips flawless defenition and shape throughout the night, and to show off the results of the NuFACE Fix.
Alleven Colour Shield
And lastly, Bass gave Dern one more product to help her glow. Says Bass, "For a flawless, healthy glow on Laura's body I applied Alleven's Colour Shield in Ivory to her chest and arms for an all over, even complexion. I also used Colour Shield in Glow, a shimmery version to highlight her shoulders and collarbones." And good news: it's quick-dry, water resistant, and transfer resistant.
