Using ooVoo group video chat, Phan will provide two lucky ooVoo users with a makeup tutorial on how to recreate the Red Carpet celebrity look of their choice.  No matter if a favorite celebrity is nominated for an award, or will be hitting the carpet with that perfect smokey eye, Phan will work her beauty magic to create a movie star transformation.
