Covid might have thrown all the awards shows for a loop, but it still hasn’t stopped the 93rd Academy Awards from happening. With a live red carpet happening amidst the pandemic, some of our favourite celebrities took this opportunity to get dressed to the nines and impress us with their hair and makeup. From no makeup-makeup to super glamourous eyeshadow looks that perfectly colour matched their gowns, here are some of the top beauty looks from the Oscars this year.
It is official, Zendaya can do no wrong. While the Spider Man actress usually serves us full glam at awards shows, this time she gave us Cher vibes with her loose mermaid waves that served as a perfect complement to her “my face but better” no-makeup makeup.
Serving us face and body, Amanda Seyfried went for full Old Hollywood vintage glam with a chignon and a sleek, swooped fringe. Her eyeshadow was kept to a minimum allowing her matte, red lip be the only pop of colour for her makeup.
While we’re used to seeing Margot Robbie as a beachy blonde, it seems like the Birds Of Prey actress has gone a darker route, trying out the hottest colour of the season, bronde in a loose ponytail and bangs. Described as a hair colour that’s a blend of brunette and blonde that’s typically combined using balayage techniques or highlights, it’s a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Musician H.E.R has been slaying it this entire awards season, giving us glamourous and colourful makeup looks that make us long for the times where we could go all crazy with our makeup. The singer went for a metallic purple eyeliner look that perfectly matched her jumpsuit and a magenta lip.
Is Angela Bassett holding onto the secret to the fountain of youth? The American Horror Story actress was glowing all night with her sun-kissed contour and didn’t shy away from a dramatic makeup look with her dark blue smokey eye.
Andra Day’s curly bangs are making us wish that we could replicate the same look! The actor kept her makeup very low-ket and airy, choosing to do a light brown shimmer on her lids and a nude lip. A perfect look for an awards show or a day at the beach if you ask us!
Is it ok to go matchy-matchy with your eyeshadow in 2021? According to Regina King, the answer is yes! The Watchmen actor went for a light blue eyeshadow with dark blue-rimmed eyelids that colour matched her gown perfectly. To keep things modern, King wore her hair in a razor-sharp bob that had nary a hair out of place.
