For the actress's makeup look, makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff wanted to "enhance her natural beauty." The makeup artist lined the top and bottom lash line with Urban Decay's 24/7 Pencil, then blended it out for a "soft smoke." For shadows, she took the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and blended black in the crease, then used a dark brown to soften the edges. For a final pop of shimmer, Sheriff tapped on the NYX Shimmerball Eyeshadow in Salmon on the center of the lid and inner corners of the eyes.
Sir John, the makeup artist that created Olivia Culpo's look, calls the star's shocking-purple eye "Ice Princess meets Great Gatsby." John used the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Shady Violet and L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette in Violet Amour around Culpo's entire eye for the washed lavender look, making sure to apply the palest purple shade under her lower lash line.
The Best Supporting Actress nominee wore a classic black, eggplant and gray smoky eye that paired perfectly with her elegant off-the-shoulder feathered Marchesa gown.
Best Supporting Actress nominee Naomie Harris dipped a toe into the red eye shadow trend with makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, who created her look for the evening. Dedivanovic used he burgundy and brown shades in Chanel's Eye Shadow Quad in Candeur Et Experience to build up this warm orange-y red eye.
While the Best Actress nominee's bold red lipstick (in the shade Mona from NARS) was the focal point of her look, which makeup artist Rachel Goodwin says was inspired by the romantic paintings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, we couldn't help but be captivated by Stone's bronze-hued eyes, too.
