At last night's 95th annual Academy Awards, Salma Hayek gave a masterclass in red carpet glamour—even if the carpet was champagne. Hayek's shimmery Gucci gown was a hit before the ceremony even began, punctuated by free-flowing waves, and a dewy, ethereal glow. One of star's latest go-tos for radiant skin? The internet-viral Makeup by Mario SurrealSkin Foundation.

SurrealSkin Liquid Foundation in 17N



Hayek's effortless Oscars 2023 makeup look was created by celebrity makeup artist and Makeup by Mario founder himself, Mario Dedivanovic. For a glowy, hydrated base, Dedivanovic first prepped her face with La Mer's Moisturizing Soft Cream and Hydrating Infused Emulsion among other skin essentials. Next, he layered the buzzy SurrealSkin Foundation in shade 17N over his brand's SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer in Medium to even out the star's complexion. And to accent Hayek's flawless face makeup, the artist added SoftSculpt Bronzer in Medium to her cheek contours, along with the Soft Pop Powder Blush in Creamy Peach and Soft Pop Blush Stick in Soft Coral for a slight flush of color.

In the few short months since its launch, the popular foundation has become a must-have among beauty lovers in the know, thanks to its wide shade range, and lightweight, flexible formula that looks nearly identical to skin. It also happens to be ultra hydrating and long-wearing, thanks to its formulation of vegan squalene and grapeseed oil, which lasts for up to 12 hours.

"Some super-moisturizing products just glide onto the face, but this one sticks onto the skin,” Dedivanovic previously told “The foundation is the perfect base to add sculpting and highlighting products atop without looking greasy.”

Even if you're not on the red carpet, the versatile foundation is easy to mix with moisturizer for a barely-there skin tint, or layer under concealer and other makeup staples for full-coverage glam—you may forget you're even wearing makeup after it's applied. According to BAZAAR associate beauty editor Katie Intner, what makes SurrealSkin so universally appealing is, "how easily it melts into the skin and is perfectly buildable."
