Beauty Hack: Oscar Worthy Makeup

Featured Video
For this week’s beauty hack, we were inspired by the Oscars red carpet’s reigning beauty queens. Lupita Nyong’o’s fresh faced makeup is the obvious top pick, while Jennifer Lawrence’s radiant look at last year’s Oscars remains a classic. Emma Watson rounds out the list with her vibrant red lips and nude eye.

Beauty Hack: Oscar Worthy Makeup

Lupita Nyong’o’s award winning beauty at the 2014 Oscars.


Lupita Nyong’o’s Fresh Face



Lupita took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress last year, along with the titles of best dressed and best beauty look. This tutorial is by Lupita’s very own makeup artist Nick Barose. A little goes a long way with this makeup look. Champagne highlighter and a touch of red lipstick are the stars of this look.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Subtle Cat Eye

This tutorial is based on J. Law’s makeup at the LA premiere of the latest in The Hunger Games film franchise, but is a close dupe of her Oscars look. The key to getting Jennifer’s radiant look is focusing dark eyeliner on the outside of your eyes and keeping the rest of your makeup clean. Finish with a slightly coral tinted gloss, rather than the pink featured in the video, to complete the look.

Emma Watson’s Bold Lip



While Emma Watson didn’t take home any Oscars, she still wowed the crowd with her gorgeous makeup. Emma’s makeup featured her flawless brows, and focused on a bold lip and full lashes. Remember to moisturize your lips prior to applying your bold lipstick, and be generous with the mascara. For extra drama, try some false lashes.
