Oscars Makeup Faves + Vote for my next Tutorial!

Hi, everyone! It's time for my annual Oscars makeup roundup where I get to share my favourite beauty looks from the night and then you get to vote for which look you'd like me to re-create in an upcoming tutorial. I always have so much fun with this, so would love to hear your thoughts!

There were a lot of super soft, uber-natural looks on the red carpet last night, which aren't always my favourite, but I've highlighted the ladies who rocked the fresh-faced makeup look the best. I also included some of the lovely actresses who made bolder, more expressive choices. We all know that I'll stand behind a vibrant, glamorous makeup look all day, every day! 

Let's get to it:

1) Naomi Watts
This is an actress that often graces my 'best of' lists and this time was no exception! I absolutely loved her lush lashes, deep plummy lips, warm rosy cheeks, and wavy hair. 

2) Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore is such a classic beauty and she looked so radiant last night! Her bronze liner, sheer rosy cheeks and lips, and dramatic lashes were ultra flattering! 

3) Lupita Nyong'o
Lupita is another regular on my awards show makeup lists. She is always radiant and never afraid to play with colour! Her icy blue eye shadow, luminous skin, and warm, tawny lips were fabulous!

4) Rosamund Pike
Rosamund Pike was one of those ladies who completely rocked a nearly bare-faced look. Her skin was radiant and the sheer rosy brown lipstick and shadow were ultra elegant. 

5) Felicity Jones
Another trend I noticed on the red carpet was a major mod movement. Felicity Jones sported the look perfectly- with soft, sultry black liner and a luscious peachy lip.

6) Margot Robbie
I will never deny a classic pinup look its spot in the limelight! Margot Robbie looked quite stunning while channeling her inner Marilyn. Love those sculpted red lips and soft, smokey bedroom eyes.

7) Cate Blanchett
Yet another regular customer on my lists, Cate Blanchett is always a vision. Last night she sported soft pinky peach cheeks and lips with a subtle bronze eye. The shades (and that amazing necklace) really made her eyes pop!

8) Ava Duvernay
Finally, a serious smoky eye! This vivacious Selma star looked incredible with her bold sultry eyes, bronzed cheeks, and lush, rosy lips. Totally fierce!

Ok, so now it's up to you! 
Which of these looks would you like me to re-create in my next tutorial?? 
Which look was your favourite?

Also, you'll notice that the blog has had a bit of a makeover! Once the updates are finalized, I will share with you the lovely blogger who made this transition possible :)

Thanks for stopping by! xo

  5. Lupita or Margot. I am loving the blog Jen!

  6. Man, I didn't even realize how natural most of the stars looked last night! I love a good bold lip too, but I really like how, well, themselves they all look. I vote for the Julianne Moore look! Those brown lids and peachy lipstick- that's a look I want to pin down :)
