My Favorite Makeup Looks from the 2016 Oscars

1. Sophie Turner

Top awards go to Sophie Turner, wearing a beautiful champagne smokey eye. The lower lash line is darker than the top, which usually makes eyes look smaller, but it’s expertly blended and makes her seafoam green eyes pop. To recreate the look, I’d use the Lorac Pro palette, with Champagne on the lids, Taupe in the crease, and Pewter blown out along the lower lash line. Sophie keeps the rest of the look natural with feathered brows, soft pink cheeks, and a pinky nude lipstick. For a close match, try  Bite Amuse Bouche lipstick in Fig.

2. Alicia Vikander

Alicia balanced out her dramatic Belle from Beauty and the Beast gown with natural makeup that added definition. She wore a matte brown smokey eye with black eyeliner along her top lash line. To recreate the look, I’d use the Lorac Pro palette with Taupe all over the lid, and Sable blended in the crease and outer corner. I’d contour with an apricot blush and wear a muted coral lipstick, like Urban Decay lipstick in Rapture.

3. Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn matched her one-shouldered tangerine dress with a bright orange-red lipstick. To recreate the look, I’d wear Urban Decay’s lipstick in Bang, with clear gloss added on top. The rest of her look was simple, with false eyelashes and coral blush.

4. Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan wore a very smokey silver eye and peachy nude lipstick. To recreate the look, I’d wear Colourpop Liberty on the lid, tightline with black eyeliner, and smoke out the line with a charcoal eyeshadow, like Lorac Slate. Saoirse wore Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Adrienne.

5. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga had an interesting take on vintage glamour. Rather than wear traditional red lips and a black cat eye, she wore a copper pink smokey eye with shimmery coral pink lipstick. To recreate the look, I’d wear a BareMinerals eyeshadow in Bragging Rights all over the lid, up into the crease, and alone the lower lashline. I’d define the crease with a darker red eyeshadow, and blend it out into a winged shape. I’d wear a coral lipstick like Nars Audacious lipstick in Julie, and pat some of the eyeshadow in the center for a frosted effect.
