Recap of Oscars 2012 Beauty Trends

It was the year of the white and red dresses, and the incredible beauty looks that went with them!!

The blunt cut and classic makeup:
When Rooney Mara stepped out in a white dress (instead of her usual black) I was shocked, and then I took in the whole look and I was blown away!  This is a fashion YES!

To achieve this look you need to deepen the color of the eyebrows, and color lips with a semi-matte red-orange shade.  Keep the rest of the look minimal with a tan eye shadow and thin black liner on top lids only.

Cover Girl Eyebrow Pencil $3

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in #39 "La Sompteuse" $32

Other blunt bangs and classic makeup looks were
Rose Byrne

Katie Homes

Ellie Kemper

"Grace Kelly Classic"
A flashback to soft waves, shoulder length hair and delicate fabrics was also present on the red carpet, most notably:
Penelope Cruise

Miley Cyrus

Mila Jovovich

Natalie Portman

Spritzing hair with a setting spray and placing mid-length hair in pin curls.  Run fingers through and shape, then set with a mist hairspray

Try Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray $25

L'Oreal Ellnet Hairspray $15

"Sleek Bun Hairstyle"
I was surprised to see this repeated again so much at the Oscars after it seemed to be on trend earlier in awards season!  But I love it!

Emma Stone

Jennifer Lopez

Shaliene Woodley

And the night's big winner, Octavia Spencer!

Sleek back hair and spritz with hair spray and secure pony tail where you desire the middle of the bun.  Twist hair and secure ends with bobby pins and then spray hair with hairspray to finish the style.  Add embellishments like rhinestone flowers or decorated hair combs on top of the bun or on the side.
