It was all about the eyes at the Oscars
The hottest beauty looks straight from the red carpet
Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / March 05 2018
The star of the show? It was all about the eyes. Dramatic eye looks in the form of serious smoke were the biggest trend for the evening. Glamorous waves and flawless skin were a close second and third.
From sophisticated and elegant to sultry and sexy, these are the Oscars beauty looks we gave top marks.
Dripping with utter coolness, as per usual, Zendaya took to the red carpet with her hair swept back and styled into a sleek and sophisticated topknot. Her smoky eyeshadow was a droolworthy hue of burgundy, and was blended towards her brow bone. She teamed it with loud lashes for a youthful and edgy twist.
We’re loving Allison’s stunning Oscars get-up. Looking every bit the belle of the ball, the Girls actress opted for classic Hollywood waves, with her lob parted at the side for an elegant and sophisticated take. However it was her long, luscious lashes that took centre stage, ensuring her blue eyes popped. Is it just us, or does she always looks so damn pristine?
Do you see her super intense smoky eye?! Absolute goals. With her eyeliner blended up towards her brow in a cat-like flick, the star chose a statement burnt-orange matte lipstick that was hot, hot, hot. She gave her golden locks voluminous and natural-looking curls - and they looked So. Damn. Good. Can we also talk about her highlighter? It’s like looking into a mirror.
Emma Stone stood out for all the right reasons, rocking a deep side part and letting her eyes do the talking. She rocked a bright pink eyeshadow, which was blended up towards her brow bone and shaded beneath her lower eye line. Teamed with black liner and a subtle glossy lip, the star oozed sophisticated chic.
The actress completely stole our hearts with her flawless *everything*. Opting for incredible loose waves (ugh her hair is amazing), cobalt blue eyeshadow, lined eyes and glowing skin, she had us speechless. Does she just not age?
While we’ll always have a soft spot for the Oscars nominee regardless, there’s no denying that Margot Robbie looked absolutely stunning. Tucked behind one ear, her lob was styled with a slight wave, while her makeup was kept natural, glowing and fresh. She chose a soft shimmery eyeshadow, that perfectly highlighted her blue peepers, and her classic nude lip tied the naturally-beautiful look together perfectly.
Looking every bit flawless, the Aussie actress opted for a bold smoky eye and kohl-rimmed waterline for a striking look that worked wonders to accentuate her blue eyes. With her locks in a messy updo, her peach-flushed cheeks and nude pout topped off her gorgeous look.
