Oscar Nomination Inspired Makeup Looks

Awards season is upon us, meaning new makeup trends are about to hit your Instagram feed straight from the red carpet! Check out these iconic makeup looks from the top nominated films and actors in the 2022 Academy Awards. 

Kristen Stewart- SPENCER (Actress In A Leading Role)  princess diana makeup look

This look was so simple but embodied the classic minimalist beauty trend before it was even a trend. To transform yourself into Princess Diana/ Kristen Stewart, it’s all about a soft brown kohl eyeliner pencil. Smudge and blend along your upper and lower eye lids for subtle definition and finish off your look with a volumizing coat of mascara like PRETTY BIG DEAL  

Nicole Kidman- BEING THE RICARDOS (Actress In A Leading Role) nicole kidman makeup look

In 1956 the It look was bright eyes and arched brows and this look is all about the spikey lashes! Recreate Lucille Ball’s classic look with a thin line of liquid eyeliner and a spikey lash like POKER FACE. Have you tried our 3-in-1 eyeliner and lash adhesive LASH & GO? It's made for a look like this! We’re sure Nicole Kidman would have approved.  

Jessica Chastain- THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE (Actress In A Leading Role)  tammy faye makeup oscars

While an exact recreation of Jessica Chastain's look isn't in everyone's taste, you can surely glam it up! The main focus of Tammy's look is a dramatic smokey eye with blues and browns layered with a coat of mascara. Totally trendy for spring! Want to up the drama on these eyes? Try a shorter lash with base volume like SECRET WEAPON.  

Ariana Debose- WEST SIDE STORY (Actress In A Supporting Role)  west side story makeup inspired

This look is all about the lips and lifted cheek bones! Ariana Debose is seen rocking Anita’s fierce red lip in West Side Story and you can pull it off too! Pick out your favourite long wear lipstick, a flirty lash like SHORT & SWEET and softly blend out a contoured face for this sculpted and youthful look. Nothing is more classic of the timeline of West Side Story than a red lip and flirty lash combo, this is one of the easiest looks to recreate on this list! 

Nadia Stacey, Naomi Donne and Julia Vernon- CRUELLA (Makeup And Hair Styling)

The one we’re MOST excited about, so much inspiration came from this popular Disney adaptation to a more complex and darker tale. Smoke out cool tine black and grey eyeshadows into a moody smokey eye just like Emma Stone aka Cruella - for added smize and drama use a flared voluminous lash like CAN'T BE TAMED to complete this look.  

Göran Lundström, Anna Carin Lock and Frederic Aspiras- HOUSE OF GUCCI (Makeup And Hair Styling)  house of gucci lady gaga makeup

First things first, Lady Gaga’s performance in House of Gucci was ICONIC. This look is all about bold defined brows and a dark smokey eye. Grab your tinted brow gel and a micro brow pencil to map out the perfect arch. Using dark taupe and brown eyeshadows, use a pencil blending brush to achieve the highest pigment payoff. If you're feeling a little extra, top off your look with a Gucci-worthy lash like SASSY BUT CLASSY 

We’re SO excited to kick off the awards show season with this major event, and even more excited to see the makeup looks that come from the red carpet on Sunday, March 27th. Stay tuned for our recap and tips on how to recreate the looks from the stars themselves!
