Beyond the gorgeous gowns and jaw-dropping jewels, the 2018 Oscars red carpet also bore witness to a slew of breathtaking beauty looks that threatened to steal the spotlight. From bright bursts of color to statement smoky eyes and power pouts galore, these were the nine beauty moments arguably worthy of their own awards.
Get Out star Allison Williams rocked a new lob on the red carpet. She gave the look a touch of old-school Hollywood glamour thanks to soft waves that were complemented perfectly by nude makeup and accentuated lashes.
Aussie beauty Margot Robbie was the epitome of springtime beauty with her off-white Chanel gown and fresh, fabulous face. Opting for just a touch of blush, a creamy pink lip, and a hint of silver shadow on her eyes, she proved that less sometimes really is more.
Trust Zendaya to bring some cool-girl edge to the red carpet. Teaming a tight topknot updo with a smoky plum eye to match her Grecian Giambattista Valli gown, she truly earned a spot on this list.
Picking a palette of pinks and rose golds, Australian actress Samara Weaving looked simply stunning. From her tousled updo to her creamy complexion, perfect raspberry pout, and striking pink-hued peepers, this look was pure perfection.
Emma Stone also opted for a pink-themed beauty look with the help of makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, who used the new NARS ‘Wanted Blush’ palette to add a fuchsia flush to her cheeks. For her eyes, Goodwin focused on metallic pinks with a touch of navy liner to really make them pop.
Sandra Bullock proved that she’s still got it in her breathtaking black-and-gold red-carpet look. Matching her makeup to her statement Louis Vuitton gown, she opted for super-straight locks and a dramatic smoky eye brought to life with a touch of golden shimmer.
Makeup maestro Hung Vanngo worked his magic on Jennifer Lawrence and broke the beauty rules by combining a statement burnt-orange lip with a statement cat-eye flick. The fierce beachy waves were just the proverbial cherry on top.
With her gorgeous Gucci gown, braided updo, purple power pout, and defined eyes, the wife of Kering’s CEO proved that she wasn’t afraid to make bold choices.
Actress Zoey Deutch was the talk of the town thanks to her dazzling eco-friendly dress, which she wore to represent the Red Carpet Green Dress award. But it wasn’t just her ensemble that got people talking as her combination of glamorous waves and berry-hued eyes and lips made for an unexpected but oh-so-chic combination.
