Hollywood glamour reached greater heights at the Oscars this year. Most of the stars shined in rocking makeup. Sophistication and chic describes the red carpet looks for Oscars. Here are some of the stars who did better than the others in the makeup department.
1. Reese Witherspoon
The evergreen actress opted for neutral tones in her makeup kit for the evening. Her lips were colored in a nude shade in matte finish. Her cheeks were done in flushed pink and eyes in light colors without much use of eyeliner. This gave a modern look rather than a retro one.
2. Jessica Chastain
The brunette beauty went with her trademark scarlet lip color which looks striking against her pale pink and flawless skin. Her eyes have been done in a neutral eye shadow with minimal use of eyeliner. The stylist has used generous amount of mascara to open up the eyes.
3. Amanda Seyfried
The lovely eyes of this leading lady were given a feline touch with delicate use of grey eye shadow to create winged lines that extend to the outer edges of the eyes. This gives them an almond shape. The lips and cheeks have been kept simple with just a dash of gloss on the lips.
Master in choosing the right makeup, Adele stuck to her signature retro smoky eye makeup. The pinky tone on her lips in matte finish gave them a neutral finish. The cheeks have been left alone and the hair style defines her face.
5. Anne Hathaway
Anne’s makeup was the only saving grace to the disastrous last minute choice of dress for the big event. The pixie cut has been aptly matched with simple makeup. Anne’s lip color went nude with a matte finish of the dull pink color. A hint of gloss in the centre of the lips makes them look fuller. Eyes were highlighted by use of a black liner.
