Oscars 2013: Catherine Zeta Jones fails to pull off flawless skin trend thanks to too much make up

Red carpet faux pas: Michael Douglas' wife's natural beauty completely hidden under too much foundation

Catherine Zeta Jones turned heads for all the wrong reasons on the Oscars 2013 red carpet tonight.

The resulting look meant Catherine, whose natural beauty could outshine most younger Hollywood actresses, was caked in foundation - which looked uncomfortably creased when she smiled.

Luckily for the star all was not lost as the natural, subtle effects used on her eyes, cheeks and lips highlighted her naturally-beautiful features.

There were a whole host of top beauty lists being showcased tonight, with the likes of Heidi Klum, Amy Adams and Salma Hayek leading the way.

Supermodel Heidi followed in Jennifer Lawrence's footsteps with her slicked-back tresses, while Amy Adams opted for a classic updo in her trademark style.

Beauty Salma Hayek showcased a highly-piled beehive with a smokey eye, which worked perfectly with her high-necked gold and black dress.
