Marion Cotillard earned an Academy Award this year for Best Actress in a Lead Role for La Vie en Rose, in which she played French chanteuse Edith Piaf.

I first took notice of Cotillard in a French film call Love Me If You Dare. It was a quirky little film about love and childhood games that go too far.

She also gave a scene-stealing performance as a woman obsessed with vengeance during World War I in A Very Long Engagement.

From Beauty Riot:

Foundation / Concealer
After moisturizing, apply concealer to the inner corners of the eyes and underneath to cover dark circles. Apply a small amount of concealer to the eyelid for a base foundation before applying shadow.

Use a foundation shade as close to your natural skin tone as possible. Blend well.

Use a pink or mauve shade blush, depending upon which compliments your skintone better. You should apply your blush in the style that best suits your face. Round faces look better with blush applied to the apple of the cheek, while narrower faces can take blush on the cheekbone. Apply blush one light layer at a time until you have a delicate, pink glow.

Apply a pearly light gold from the lid to the crease. Dot some in the inner corners of the eyes for extra glamour.

Next apply a mauve or rose matte shadow to the outer half of each lid.

Apply a medium mauve or rose in the crease from corner to corner.

Apply a cream or vanilla color just below the brow, from underneath the arch to the outer corner.

Choose either a dark chocolate brown or deep wine color eyeliner. You can either use a sharp pencil, or use a wet brush dipped in a powder shadow.

Apply a thin line to the top lash line, from corner to corner. Use a light touch and get the color in between the lashes. You can try dotting your way across the lashline and then going back and filling in to create one continuous line. Repeat until your lashline is nicely filled in, without allowing the line to get too heavy. You can thicken the line a little at the outer half of the lashline to add glamour and widen eyes. Now trace around the inner corner for a really professional look.

Continue with a light hand to apply liner across the bottom lashline getting in between lashes like with the top lashline. Use a small sponge or a folded tissue to blur and fade the line.

Use a brow wax, with a small brush to shape and fill in, or pencil. Start by defining the arch and then fill in the rest as necessary.

Curl lashes and coat two or three times with a black, lengthening mascara.

To get glass-smooth lips, try brushing them very gently with an old, soft toothbrush. Then apply petroleum jelly and allow it to soak in for 30 or more minutes.

Choose a matching lipliner and lipstick in a light pink or mauve shade that matches your blush as closely as possible. Apply one coat of the lipstick and blot with tissue, then apply a second coat. Then, line the lips if necessary. Cover your lips with a coat or two of clear gloss.
