Oscars 2016: The Best Hair and Makeup Moments
BEST AU NATURALE
Margot's makeup artist Tyron Machhausen opted for a “fresh and effortless” beauty look to complement the actress' dazzling golden Tom Ford gown. The makeup pro gave the star luminious skin using Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder Duo and finished the look with a matte nude lip with Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual.
MOST INTRICATE UPDO
BEST STATEMENT LIP
Celeb makeup artist Hung Vanngo selected Naomi's deep red lip with a little help from her fans before she hit the red carpet. The final pick — L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Rouge Envy — popped perfectly against her blue-and-purple sequin Armani Privé gown.
MOST ORIGINAL HAIR ACCESSORY
Celeb hairstylist Mara Roszak gave Brie a “celestial but fresh look” with a half-up, half-down hairstyle, twisting pieces from the front into intricate knots. The hair pro then added a silver slice of fabric (which echoed the beading on the star's gorgeous royal blue Gucci gown) into the knots and sealed the look with a few spritzes of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray for hold.
Normally we'd applaud Alicia for her gorgeous glow (seriously, what's the secret to that impeccable tan?), but for the Oscars, we're all about her take on every fashion girl's favorite hairstyle: the “hun” (half-up, half-down look with a teeny bun on top). Paired with her strapless “dusty yellow” Louis Vuitton dress, the Belle comparisons practically make themselves.
BEST OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM
MOST UNEXPECTED UPDO
We so rarely see Sofia stray from voluminous, glossy waves that we couldn't help automatically awarding her top prize for her center-parted ponytail.
Olivia's monochromatic makeup moment was noteworthy in and of itself, but we're all still talking about her lit-from-within skin, which Patrick Ta achieved with Chanel's glow-enhancing products, including Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid and Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick in No. 22.
BEST SMOKY EYE
The Brooklyn actress went all out for the star-studded evening in a plunging custom emerald-hued Calvin Klein Collection design, which was completed to perfection with her “smoky and sensual” silvery eyeliner, courtesy of makeup artist Mai Quynh, using Chanel's Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Smoky.
BIGGEST HAIR TREND
Everything about Mindy's beauty look for the star-studded evening is worth noting: the shimmery smoky eye! the glossy nude lip! the center-parted chignon! Which is why we've crowned her queen of everything for the night — it's so pretty, we bet it would turn Disgust into Joy.
CLOSEST BRAID RACE
After seeing Olivia's intricately twisted updo and Chrissy's multi-plait moment, there's no way we can pick just one winner, which is why we're deeming both wispy dos worthy of awards.
