The Oscars- Red Carpet Report!

Simple was the way to go at this year’s Oscars and surrounding parties and events, with almost every young Hollywood starlet wearing lightly smoked-out eyeshadow paired with pale pink lip gloss. Though the minimal makeup look was clearly a hit, that didn’t make for boring red carpet beauty. Each star used the makeup uniform of the night to their advantage, highlighting their best features with an extra dab of gloss or expertly placed winged liner. 

Minus the intricate updos and false lashes, many of these looks can be paired down for a day of classes, so don’t hesitate to recreate a few of your favorites at home! From nude lips to retro waves, here are some of the best beauty looks from the 2013 Oscars!


Kerry WashingtonWith sleek hair and muted makeup, the star looked fresh as can be. Don’t you just love the petal pink blush paired with loads of Lancôme HYPNÔSE STAR mascara and Rouge in Love lipstick in Rose Boudoir. (The eyeshadow is Lancome’s Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Sienna Sultry)

Jennifer Aniston: Queen of the natural, beachy tresses, Jen opted for her famous blown-out, straight tresses on this year’s red carpet, and let her fiery red Valentino dress do the talking.


Reese Witherspoon: Reese styled her iconic blonde locks in beautiful, tumbling Veronica Lake-style waves for the ceremony, which were structured with a deep side part and swept over one shoulder and her signature blue eyeshadow..


Jessica Chastain: Chastian described her glittery Armani Privé gown as a “Happy Birthday Mr. President kind of dress.” But it was her creamy skin, Jessica Rabbit waves, bright red lip, and a simple stroke of black liner that truly brought the old Hollywood glamour into 2013.


Jennifer Lawrence: Letting her natural beauty shine through, the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress embraced a minimalist look on her fair complexion, highlighting only her eyes with a small amount of glistening charcoal smoky eye with a head-turning twisted bun.

Naomi Watts: Matching her rose coloured lips to a very subtle rose coloured blush, Aussie actress Naomi looked ladylike and elegantly understated on the red carpet.
Jennifer Garner: This mum-of-three looked stunning on the red carpet, donning the latest trend and keeping her puckered lips a simple nude colour.
Zoe Saldana: Zoe chose beautiful shades of shimmering brown, grey and black shadow to perfectly highlight her big brown eyes; a stand out feature of her otherwise simple makeup.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum: This is one mum-to-be that certainly has a glow. Jenna looked flawless with subtlety-winged eyeliner covered with a soft brown shimmer. The look was complemented with perfectly manicured eyebrows.


Amanda Seyfried: Light plum shadow, baby pink gloss, and shimmering highlighter made the Les Miserables actress look simply angelic—just like her sweet singing voice! A gently mussed updo completed the soft look.
So, who had your favorite hair/makeup look of the 2013 Oscars?
