Academy Awards Beauty Special (Part 5)
FROM bright colours, show stopping hair and make-up to embellished gowns galore, the beauty game has always been strong. The Academy Awards never disappoint when it comes to fashion and beauty and, sure, there are always a few misses, but we still get excited to see what Hollywood biggest names steps out in. You also get a helping hand on some of the latest trends, giving you an idea on how to incorporate it into your wardrobe or how trends look on different skin tones and silhouettes. Here are our bests and worsts of 2015.
EMMA Stone embraced chartreuse, or that colour between yellow and green (one of the trickiest shades ever). She paired it with one of the easiest shades for lips, though: orange. There’s a shade for everyone!
THE champion of elegant, romantic locks, Keira’s loose waves, mauve lip and soft eyes, showed that less can be more.
WHILE it was the year of modest and understated styles on the red rug – Scarlett chose a brave buzzcut and quiff combo. Not for the faint of heart.
ZENDAYA’s two-toned dreads were actually magical. While she received a lot of flack (by one Fashion Police judge in particular) she nailed modern-day glam.
FALSE lashes strike again! They make Jen’s gold eyeshadow, subtle waterlining and natural brows stand out fantastically.
RITA’s make-up is a cute nod to the 1960s. Think Twiggy. She also showed off her shorter hair.
THIS is how you make retro-inspired hair feel modern. Carmen mixes soft 1930s flapper-style curls with a modern dye job to keep her look unmistakably contemporary.
Oscar’s Don’t: Jennifer Lopez
REDDISH tones surrounding your entire eye is never a good thing. Add a goopy application of clashing candy pink lip gloss and way too much bronzer and you’ve got Jennifer’s worst Oscar’s look.
