THE OSCARS: Make-up from the Red Carpet by Jamie GreenbergJamie Greenberg, a Los Angeles-based make-up artist, was kept busy during Oscar week with events leading up to and on the big night.  For two of those important parties—the Independent Spirit Awards and the Vanity Fair Viewing Party—Greenberg created party-pretty looks for “The Office” star Rashida Jones. She also did Katie Esleton and Ari Graynor for the Vanity Fair Party.

“For Rashida we really wanted her lips to pop. Her hair was sleek and beautiful so the make-up had to be clean and pretty,” explains Greenberg.

Working with products from Avon’s mark line, Greenberg did a warm eye and red lip on Jones, all against flawless skin. Here's how:
