My Top 5 Oscars Makeup Looks (and the worst!)

by Anne Hutton Makeup & Beauty, Carlow

So it's that time of year again, and all of our favourite Hollywood hotties got their glam on for the 2013 Annual Academy Awards. Most of our lovely ladies kept it simple yet elegant, while some pushed the boat out a little for a more attention-grabbing look.
Here are my top 5 favourite celeb Oscar looks (in no particular order)!

JESSICA CHASTAIN





Jessica Chastain looking very old-Hollywood, with bright red lipstick, minimal eyeshadow, liquid liner along her top lash-line, and lots of lashes. In my opinion she could do with slightly more groomed looking eyebrows however!

JENNIFER LAWRENCE

 Best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence looks soft and girlie, with subtle contouring of her cheekbones, a soft smokey eye, pink blush and nude pink glossy lips.


JENNIFER HUDSON

Jennifer emphasises her beautiful eyes with soft eyeshadow, lots of soft lashes and black liner on her upper lash-line only. Her lips are nude, soft and natural.


AMANDA SEYFRIED

I just love Amanda's winged purply eyeshadow, which gives an almost feline look to her huge eyes. Her skin is dewey with subtle highlights on her cheekbones, brow bones and along the centre of her nose.

SANDRA BULLOCK

Does this woman ever age? Sandra looks amazing as always with matte skin (no shine), smokey eyes and barely there lips. She looks super-groomed!


And now a special Thumbs-Down bonus! My least favourite Oscar's Makeup Looks....

ADELE
Sorry Adele! I really love you but I really don't love this look. Two words: TOO MUCH!!
Adele's beautiful eyes are simply hidden under layers of eyeshadow, thick eyeliner and gigantic false lashes. It's more Saturday night than Oscars in my opinion. Nice eyebrows though.

GINNIFER GOODWIN

Oh what were you thinking Ginnifer?! And she usually looks so cute! Her eyeshadow is pretty cool I must say, but would look much better without all that black liner, the dodgy spikey false lashes, and the over-blackened eyebrows.
