The Oscars beauty low-down

So most of us girls were glued to our tv screens last night watching all the glitz and glam of the Oscars.  I got to see it all up close 😉  I must say I highly enjoyed seeing all the beautiful gowns, the colors and styles and most of all the hair and makeup!!  So ladies, here are my favorite beauty looks:

 

Jessica Chastain

This is on the top of my list as it’s one of my favorite looks of the night.   Don’t you just love her beautiful hair?  I love how her hair has lots of natural texture.  I think this is a great bridal hair style for someone wanting to create a soft half-up and half-down do.  I also love how her makeup is kept natural and fresh with a simple eyeliner look.  Adore the lip color and the cheeks too.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone (in my opinion) looked amazing.  Everyone seems to be writing negative comments about all the red, but I liked it! I think her makeup was so subtle with the touch of graphic eyeliner.  Her lip color was kept soft with that “just bitten look” that I love.

Angelina Jolie

I think her hair and makeup was stunning.  This is a great blow out with lots of natural looking waves and volume.  I also think her makeup looks flawless.  Love that red lip color with just the right amount of sheen.  Her eyes look gorgeous too!

Jennifer Lopez

J-Lo’s makeup and hair were fabulous!  I love the winged out white eye liner with long luscious lashes.  I think her skin looks beautiful and the lip is a great nude color with a touch of peach.  Her hair looked really elegant.   I am loving the high top bun.   It seems to look great on almost anyone.

Gwyneth Paltrow

She always has great skin.  She always focuses on keeping her skin dewy and highlighting in the right places.  Great lip color for brides.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron’s dress was just gorge, right?  Had to put this picture up as she was one of the most talked about celebs on the night!  I think her new hair style suits her a lot.  Her hair looks healthy and brings youthfulness to her face.

Stacy Keibler

I think this is a great hair style for someone wanted side swept hair.  Love the waves and how her hair frames her face.

Michelle Williams

I just love Michelle’s complexion.  She is always radiating.  Definitely using liquid illuminators 😉  Simple and lovely as always.

Kate Mara

Love her hair style, very organic and natural.  Just how I like to create hair especially for weddings.  I adore the adorned hair piece, really makes it look more glamorous.

Rose Byrne

I love this look for a few reasons, but mostly I love love love the shine in her hair and how it makes her look so put together.  It is so important that our hair looks lustrous, healthy and shiny!  Must be all the argan oil.  I also love her peachy lip color.

Rooney Mara

This is a very English Rose look.  I love her complexion, cheek color, brows, simple eye makeup and pinky red matte lip colors.  Very simple but has impact.  Another lovely bridal look if wanting a stronger lip.

Octavia Spencer

She was really glowing and looking gorgeous.  I love the highlighted areas on her skin and the amber colored cheeks.  Her eye makeup was lovely too.   I would have perhaps blended the darker outer shadow a little more but overall I think she looked great!

Shailene Woodley

I think she looked so pretty.  This is a lovely bridal look for a bride that is looking for something more natural.  I love the warmth in her eye shadow and the pretty pink lip

So ladies what is your opinion on all these looks?  Who was your favorite?  Would love to hear your opinion, please comment on my facebook page!

Have a beautiful Monday evening!

Enjoy life and stay beautiful!
