While the world is still talking about the hairstyles and makeup moments spotted at the Oscars, we’re lusting after the beauty looks overlooked amidst all that fuss. And trust us when we say this: you don’t want to be missing out on these. Not only are we talking about some of the most striking eye-makeup looks we’ve seen in a while, but there’s also glitter galore and bold lips perfect for the spring/summer season. Which would you dare to wear? Vote in our poll, below.
There’s no look more fitting to celebrate the Oscars than Old Hollywood glam, which Adriana Lima proved perfectly this week. Stepping out on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair afterparty with deep-red lips, a sultry feline flick, and sleek waves, she was the epitome of a brunette bombshell. As for that perfect power pout? All thanks to a mix of Maybelline’s ‘Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick’ in ‘Burgundy Blush’ and ‘Rich Ruby’.
But when it comes to fierce flicks, no one outdid Taylor Hill this week. The model looked breathtaking with her midnight-blue winged liner look by Hung Vanngo, which saw flecks of sparkly teal blended into a deep-blue shadow, with lots of kohl liner to boot. Simple skin and nude lips ensured all eyes were on hers.
The queen of the statement stare has to be Lucy Boynton, who has wowed us more times with her eye makeup than we can count. Of course, her most recent look was no exception. It saw her rock a stunning gunmetal and gold glittery eye to perfectly match her Gucci gown. What better way to celebrate your significant other winning an Oscar – she’s currently dating Rami Malek – than with a look that matches the statuette?
Selena Gomez looked pretty in pink with a soft palette of peaches, pinks, and rose golds, proving that you don’t always need dark colors or bold hues to stand out. To keep things cool and not too “pretty, pretty”, she teamed her makeup with a snatched high pony and chunky hoop earrings.
Within the week itself, Lima swapped her deep-berry red for a seriously hot fuchsia hue, ensuring she earned a second spot on this list. Described by makeup artist Patrick Ta as “a glossy moment”, it was all about wet-look lids, high-shine hair, and a matte-pink pout so bright that you probably shouldn’t stare right at it – although it’s impossible not to.
