18 Oscar-Winning Beauty Looks
Hollywood brought its A-game last night—and we’re not just talking about Ellen Degeneres’ Twitter-crashing selfie. From Cate Blanchett’s retro waves to Naomi Watts’ deep wine-coloured pout, here are the beauty looks that you need to see again (with plenty of insider tips to try at home!).
Hair legend Serge Normant twisted Roberts’ locks into a loose, low bun, and then gave it texture with his own Meta Revive Dry Shampoo ($25).
The actress’ red lip came courtesy of Dior’s Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35) in Open Me—available March 15th–and makeup artist Sara Glick.
Jolie wore her hair sleek and pushed back—one of spring’s latest red carpet trends—thanks to hairstylist Adam Campbell.
Legendary hairstylist Chris McMillan calls the look he created on Hudson “Veronica Lake-meets-Jerry Hall.” He curled her locks with a 1-inch iron, brushed through her strands with a Mason Pearson, then set her strands with Living Proof’s Flex Shaping Hairspray ($24).
For serious shine, hairstylist Renato Campora applied Kérastase’s Laque Couture ($35) to the actress’ locks after he wrapped her strands into a tight chignon.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our favorite man hair! Hairstylist Chase Kusero applied a cocktail of Vidal Sassoon’s Waves Primer Spray ($5) under the Waves Pomade ($5) to the actor’s locks, let him sleep on it for lived-in texture, then used the brand’s ColorFinity Dry Shampoo in Rich Darks ($5) the next day.
Hairstylist Mara Roszak was inspired by “old Hollywood glam,” so she curled the bottom half of Biel’s locks with a 1 ½-inch curling iron, then applied L’Oreal Paris’ Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Strand-Smoother Serum Spray ($5) for a shiny finish.
To create a “modern movie star” look, makeup artist Jeanine Lobell applied a strip of faux lashes to Blanchett’s eyes, then used Lancôme’s Hypnôse Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara ($28) in Black for added volume.
Lawrence paired her red Dior dress with Deborah Lippmann’s Nail Lacquer ($18) in Sarah Smile under a coat of Tiny Dancer.
“The almond shape gave Anne’s nails a bit of an edge while still feeling very old-Hollywood glam,” says nail artist Tom Bachik. After shaping, he painted the actress’ nails with a nude polish under a coat of L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Polish ($6) in Sweet Nothings.
“We didn’t want to do a typical red lip,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. Instead, she used the deep plum hue of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain ($35) in #1 Violet Edition on Robbie.
Makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen used Giorgio Armani’s Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick ($34) in #502 Scarlatto to achieve the actress’ deep red pout.
