The Best Makeup Looks From the Oscars


Award ceremonies offer an excellent opportunity to honour the arts. However, they also provide a fantastic chance to gawp at the looks celebrities pull together. Indeed, this year’s Oscars didn’t disappoint. Although there are many stunning makeup looks, we’ve selected three of the best. Plus, the products you need to recreate them at home.


Oscars Artist: Priscilla Ono

You can always count on the Fenty Beauty founder to pull it out of the bag with her makeup looks. Indeed, her red-carpet attire was no exception. I love her dewy skin and the creamy matte red lip, but the real star is that hairdo! Riri brings fun and playfulness to an otherwise classic award show attire by opting for a spiky topknot. But then, we wouldn’t expect anything less.

Get the look: The Fenty Beauty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in The MVP is the ultimate red lip. The whipped formula feels comfortable on the lips, but the long-wearing formula means it’ll stay put without smudging all night!

Angela Bassett

Oscars Artist: D’Andre Michael

Angela Bassett’s royal purple dress was one of the night’s best outfits. She kept her makeup more neutral-toned to avoid any colour clashing. But neutral tones don’t have to be boring, as this look proves! The warm, slightly pink-toned shimmery eyeshadow paired with the almost first-finished cappuccino lips gives ’90s supermodel glam but with a modern twist. Moreover, her stunning old Hollywood waves ensure the look is eminently Oscar-worthy.

Get the look: You can’t beat MAC for authentic frost lipstick. The shade Spanish Fly is the perfect cool-toned brown with a soft, glowy finish.
