In case you haven’t heard, the Oscars are THIS Sunday (but you obviously knew that, right?). In just two days, this year’s most popular A-list celebrities will be walking the red carpet of
Hollywood’s biggest night. Yes, the photogs will be zooming in and snapping away at each star’s beauty hits and misses (hey,
Jennifer Lawrence!), but just because you’re not at the event doesn’t mean you can’t rock your own golden moment at home. No doubt you’re getting together with friends to watch the program live—and you’re looking for hair and makeup inspiration that will fit the bill. I personally guarantee that if you wear one of these celebrity-approved,
red carpet-worthy beauty looks on the eve of March 2
nd, you’ll own the most talked about look of the night.
Runway inspiration: DSquared2 Spring 2014 (above)
Why we love it: Get a jump start on your spring beauty regime with a
bright orange lip (
the colour of the moment). Do as the celebs do and highlight just one feature—in this case, the lip is the focal point while the light
smoky eye and voluminous lashes are the backdrop.
