Did anyone catch the awkwardness of Oscars 2017 last night?! I’m still in disbelief at what happened that I almost forgot about the best red carpet makeup moments. I’m very happy Moonlight won and definitely recommend it to those who have yet to see it!
For today’s post, I’ve rounded up my favorite looks of the night, as well as recreating two different Oscars looks.
Contour is Out
As a lot of trend forecasters have predicted, face contour is seemingly phasing out. Instead, the focus was on soft cheeks and matte eyes with pops of gold shimmer.
Jessica Biel went straight for the flick of the eyeliner. The adorable Chrissy Teigen opted for smokey neutrals. Hailee Steinfield killed it on the red carpet. The lady of the night, Emma Stone, chose a soft matte look with brick red lips.
I’m recreating looks by Emma Stone and Chrissy Teigen using some products I’ve been really liking lately.
First Thing’s First
With great skincare comes beautiful makeup. I’ve been using the Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cleanser and it seriously leaves skin soft and clean. I’ve been dealing with super oily T-zones lately, so I’m using the Glycolic Acid Toner by Mario Badescu that I always use when I need oil control. Finally, I’ll massage in Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer for optimal hydration.
Emma Stone’s Makeup
For Emma’s beauty look, I stuck with a very matte foundation using the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation (I’m in #58) along with the concealer from the same line. I filled in my brows and brushed on the Buxom True Hue Blush. I completed the look by smoking out my eyeliner and applying the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick that I’ve been trying out.
If you don’t know this about me already, it’s that I absolutely love Chrissy Teigen. So of course, I had to recreate her neutral smokey matte beauty look. For this look, I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette along with a MAC Lipstick in Antique Velvet. I did line my lips with a brown liner to warm up the lipstick, as it’s more nude than brown.
I hope you all enjoyed these two looks!
