NEIL PATRICK HARRIS

Celebrity groomer Sonia Lee created the look for Neil Patrick Harris last night at the Oscars using Montez Renault and Leonor Greyl products.

“For Neil’s look tonight, we wanted to him looking as easy and natural as possible but still classic and sexy," said Lee. "He’s wearing this great custom Brunello Cucinelli grey cashmere tux with a satin shawl collar.

"Before we started, I had Neil cleanse his face with Montez Renault Facial Cleanser.  Then I began by applying Tom Ford Anti-Fatigue Eye Treatment around the eye contour.  Next, I applied Montez Renault Facial Moisturizer on his skin with a foundation brush.  I used the brush so it ensures an even application.  I massaged in the moisturizer with my fingers after to ensure that it absorbed really well.  I loved this moisturizer, its so refreshing and the scent is amazing.  It absorbs really quickly and is really light which is what most men prefer when using a moisturizer.

"I went back over his t-zone with Murad Face Mattifier to tamp down any shine and make sure he was camera ready.  We also used Collyre Bleu Eye Drops so that his eyes look brighter and wouldn’t get dry when he’s on the red carpet.  To finish off, I applied Montez Renault Moisturizing Body Lotion to his arms, hands, everywhere to keep his skin looking moisturized and healthy.

"For his hair, I started by warming up Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel in my hands and applied it evenly and lightly all over his hair.  This styling cream is a really great product because it gives the hair a little shine and makes it look really finished.  Then I used a flatiron to straighten out any flyaways and went back with Leonor Greyl Baume Bois de Rose (launching April 2015) and used my fingers to create a bit of separation for a sexier look.  The products smell amazing and so refreshing which is really great!”

Before Neil ran on stage in just his tighty-whities, he had to strip down super-fast to his underwear and Sonia had just enough time to apply Montez Renault Moisturizing Body Lotion on him.  She loves the scent and the fact that it is light and non-greasy, plus it made him feel like he was wearing something!
