Parasite may have won big at the 92nd Academy Awards, taking home the ceremony’s most prestigious award for Best Picture, but it was 82-year-old presenter Jane Fonda and her unbelievably ageless skin that we couldn’t seem to take our eyes off of.
Incredibly enough, her flawless makeup, which she rocked with a newly silver pixie cut and a sparkling garnet Elie Saab gown recycled from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, came courtesy of an anti-aging drugstore line that’s also beloved by the likes of Helen Mirren — L’Oréal Age Perfect.
What’s more, every element of the Grace and Frankie’s star’s look, from her radiant concealer to her ruby lips, rang in under $20!
Makeup artist David De Leon took to Instagram to share all the products he used to make the actress glow brighter than ever for her big night, beginning with the company’s Age-Perfect foundation in warm beige ($15.99).
Designed specifically for mature skin, it’s packed with a hydrating serum and vitamin B3 to help retain skin’s moisture, making for a lightweight formula that won’t settle into fine lines, which Fonda told Access in 2012 that she purposely kept while undergoing plastic surgery around her eye area. “I don’t like hypocrisy,” she said at the time. “I made sure that they kept my lines. I didn’t want to lose my wrinkles, I just wanted to lose the bags under my eyes.”
To further cover up any would-be imperfections, De Leon turned to L’Oréal’s Age-Perfect concealer in natural beige ($12.99) and creamy powder foundation in cream beige ($15.99), which is infused with a blend of ceramides (fat molecules that help to retain moisture), antioxidants, and complex minerals. It’s also got a shine-free, matte finish.
From there, the makeup guru dusted Fonda’s cheeks with a bit of Age-Perfect radiant satin blush in rosewood ($12.99). This pigmented pick features Japanese nourishing camellia oil, which has long been used by geishas for its oleic acid, slew of vitamins (A, B, D and E), and omegas (3, 6 and 9).
As for her eyes, De Leon made them pop with the Age-Perfect satin glide waterproof eyeliner in charcoal ($9.99), lash-magnifying mascara with conditioning serum ($10.99), and brow-magnifying pencil in blonde ($7.97), which he used to fill in any sparse hairs.
He finished the look off with a swipe of the brand’s Age-Perfect anti-feathering lipliner in Nude Pink ($9.99) and satin lipstick in Subtle Primrose ($7.99).
We guess it’s true: Age really IS nothing but a number!
