Oscars 2015: Behind the Scenes With Scarlett Johansson's Makeup Artist

Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh, who also works with Chloe Grace Moretz and Aubrey Plaza, gave us a sneak peek at her pre-Oscar preparations.

The awards-season race is more of a marathon for the makeup artists whose days and nights are packed with getting celeb clients ready for red carpets, high teas, cocktail parties and press interviews.

Oscar weekend is no exception, especially with pre-awards parties, designer dinners and the Independent Spirit Awards, which all happen just a day before the ceremony.

Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh knows the marathon that is awards season well and was particularly busy this past weekend making up her longtime clients Lily Allen, Chloe Grace Moretz, Aubrey Plaza and Scarlett Johansson for the slew of events each actress attended.

To prepare herself beforehand and be well-prepared (for anything) the day of, Quynh turned to healthy and hydrating juices, her favorite meal and an arsenal of luxe beauty products to keep herself sane, inspired and moving along beautifully.

"I feel the lip gave this whole look the quintessential 'Scarlett' touch — she has great lips!" notes Quynh about Johansson’s Oscar-night beauty. The color she used on the actress is a Dolce Matte Lipstick by Dolce & Gabbana that hits stores this April.
