The Oscars are over, and now that the whole envelope controversy has settled, let’s take a look at what we’ve learnt from the stars who graced the red carpet that night. Here are the top 3 beauty trends we spotted that night, and what you’ll need to get them.
Pink in all shades was spotted on eyes everywhere. Magenta, baby pink, deep rose – stars sported every shade gamely.
Actress Naomie Harris (Moonlight) was the boldest, with her magenta lids complementing her pristine white Calvin Klein dress. Actress Scarlett Johansson went a lot subtler, with a light wash of pink accenting her peepers. After all, with God-given genes like hers, you don’t need much help.

The stars went retro for Oscars this year, with Emma Stone (La La Land), Emma Roberts, and Ruth Negga (Loving) wearing red lips reminiscent of old-school Hollywood.
The shades ranged from scarlet to burgundy, but there was one similarity: they were all perfectly applied and flawless. Tip: exfoliate before application for a smooth canvas.

Perhaps the simplest beauty look of the night, glowing skin kept the actresses looking flawless, without taking attention away from their outfits.
Actresses Alicia Vikander, Jessica Biel, and Felicity Jones took to the red carpet looking like goddesses, with the help of highlight, bronzer and their makeup artists’ skilled hands. Tip: moisturised skin is key for this look – we suggest applying a mask before starting your makeup for the best lit-from-within result.
