Get the Look: Oscars 2011
Last night's Oscar Awards were bittersweet for us. While we loved the gaggle of gowns, hair, and makeup looks to swoon over, the show marked the official end of awards season, leaving us with months until our next red carpet. Take a look at some of our favorite hair and makeup styles below and how you can get the look at home. Plus, be sure to see who topped off our best and worst list here.
Sandra Bullock's Textured Bun
David Babaii for Couture Colour styled Bullock's bun by applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment on wet hair and drying with a round brush. Once dry, he brushed her hair back and used IT&LY Hair Fashion Digital Styling Iron to twist half-inch sections of the hair, starting at the front. After each section had cooled, he combed the hair back into a ponytail at the nape and wrapped her hair around an elastic in a bun, allowing any loose hairs to fall naturally.
Hilary Swank's Silver Smoky Eye
"I really wanted to play up Hilary's eyes, so I used her gorgeous Gucci Premiere couture dress with shades of gray and satin as my color inspiration," said CoverGirl makeup artist Monika Blunder. To get the look, Blunder blended silvery colors across the eye, opening them up with CoverGirl Liquiline Blast in Silver Spark close to the top and bottom lash lines. Using darker colors on the outside of the lid and silver shades on the inside she applied CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast in Onyx Smoke to bring out the shades of her dress. As a last touch, she curled the lashes and topped off with CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara in Very Black.
Anne Hathaway's Low 'Do
To get the presenter's red carpet chignon, Frederic Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel started by parting her hair down the center and applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip from roots to the ends. Using a round brush he dried the hair and pulled it into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, making sure to cover Hathaway's ears. Next, he twisted the ponytail into a knot, keeping it loose so the wispy pieces in the front could fall out. To top it off he spritzed Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray for flexible hold.
Gwyneth Paltrow's Glowing Skin
"I wanted Gwyneth to look classic and beautiful, but at the same time approachable," said CHANEL makeup artist Leslie Lopez. To get her radiant skin, she prepped with CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream, with CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup in Beige and CHANEL Correcteur Perfection Long-Lasting Concealer in Beige Ivoire as a base. After applying CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta on the lids and CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Trace in the creases, she mixed the brown and taupe shades in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes and lightly dusted on top of the lids. To top it off, Lopez lined the eyes with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Brun and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir, concentrating on the outer corners to make the eyes really pop.
Jennifer Lawrence's Bombshell Blowout
Dove celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend gave Lawrence a fresh take on 1940s waves by using a dollop of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum on damp hair, blowing out, and setting in hot rollers with styling gel. After 30 minutes of setting with the rollers, Townsend raked through Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-in Smoothing Cream to keep the hair shiny. Next, he sprayed Dove Flexible Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement onto a flat, natural bristle brush and ran it through her hair. He then spritzed Dove Heat Defense Therapy Mist on the ends of her hair and took a two-inch curling iron to shape the ends just slightly. He topped off the look with another mist of hairspray to keep her hair from falling flat on the red carpet.
Mila Kunis's Romantic Waves
To get this Black Swan star's breezy updo, TRESemmé celebrity stylist Mara Roszak applied TRESemmé Naturals Mousse to wet hair and rough dried, parting hair to one side. Next, she used a one-inch barrel curling iron to wave the hair away from the face in small sections. She then brushed the curled sections out with her fingers and formed an "S" around Kunis's face. She finished by pulling the hair into a soft chignon and spraying with TRESemmé Naturals Finishing Spray for hold.
