Find Out How to Create Our Favorite Celebrity Makeup Looks from the Oscars

Our Favorite Celebrity Makeup Looks from the Oscars

The stars came out looking their best for the 2014 Academy Awards. From simple and chic to bold and daring, here are some of our favorite celebrity makeup looks that graced the red carpet. 

In our opinion, Jennifer Lawrence can practically do no wrong. Her cat eye and subtle lip color are simple yet elegant. To achieve Jennifer’s cat eye, sweep a long-lasting gel eyeliner such as Colorescience Gel Eyeliner onto your lash line with an angled brush. 

When you have gorgeous skin like Lupita Nyong’o, you don’t need much makeup. She came to the 2014 Academy Awards with a simple sweep of metallic shadow and a red lip. jane iredale Eye Gloss in Grey Silk creates a shimmery finish similar to Lupita’s and adds a touch of shine. 

A popular celebrity makeup look is the smoky eye and Angelina Jolie proved that it is still in style. By using a palette such as glo minerals GloSmoky Eye Kit, you can create a neutral brown smoky eye that is fit for the red carpet. 

Bold lip color is a risk that Kerry Washington achieved to perfection at the 2014 Academy Awards. Her deep berry lip color sets off her simple eye makeup for a bold and stylish look. A creamy lipstick such as bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Lead the Way will help create this perfect pout. 

Not only is she an acting legend, Meryl Streep is a timeless beauty who always manages to look elegant. Her simple and classic appearance featured minimal makeup to show off her naturally flawless skin. All you need to create this look is a skin-perfecting foundation such as jane iredale Amazing Base Loose Minerals SPF 20 and a sweep of natural blush such as Colorescience Pressed Mineral Cheek Colore in Pink Lotus..
