Anya Taylor-Joy

The Queen’s Gambit star graces the Oscars 2024 with cascading locks

Anya Taylor-Joy exuded breathtaking beauty on the red carpet with a winning beauty blend of strong liner, volumized lashes, and a splash of lip color. The high-shine lip is a combination of Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm in Minty Rose, Dior Addict Lip Oil in Rosewood, and Rouge Dior Contour Lip Liner in Nude Pink. Together, they “create a beautiful hydrating base, and is the perfect understated complement to her eyes,” makeup artist Georgie Eisdell explains in her Instagram post. “We wanted her makeup to be elegant and timeless.” The star also kept her silky blond tresses down with a smooth middle parting to compliment her makeup.

Emma Stone

Soft glam is the way to go for this award-winning actress

Academy Award winner for Best Actress Emma Stone takes the monochromatic makeup look to the next level, committing to a glossy pinky-peach hue to complement her custom Louis Vuitton dress. The star looked radiant, courtesy of makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, and debuted Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Big Lip Plumpgasm on her lips. Nail artist Emi Kudo matched the look with a Dazzle Dry nail polish in the shade Peacefully Me, and hairstylist Mara Rozsak framed Emma’s darker hair in a center part and soft, long waves.

Vanessa Hudgens

This soon-to-be-mom flexes pregnancy glow with smokey brown tones

Vanessa Hudgens stunned the red carpet with a baby bump in a Vera Wang gown, flaunting the pregnancy glow with a chic and striking look. Makeup artist Tonya Brewer gave the actress a matte base, topped with blush and bronzer to accentuate her features and cheekbones. Her glam moment was all smokey brown eyes, arched eyebrows, and a warm shade of mauve lip. Danielle Priano styled her hair in a sleek half-up hairstyle with a single face-framing lock, capping off her look to a sure head-turner.


Zendaya’s minimal yet chic look never disappoints

After a whirlwind Dune: Part Two press tour, Zendaya is back on the red carpet with yet another showstopping look. Tai Simon styled her hair to a fabulous bob with a deep side part and a most pristine outward flip at the ends, creating the perfect frame for her rose-toned makeup. Zendaya is timeless glamor with her perfectly defined eyebrows and a semi-matte, rose-nude colored lip that matched her earrings.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence’s natural and fresh face of makeup doesn’t take away the glam

Clad in Dior polka dots, Jennifer Lawrence exuded bronzy warmth in a ‘less is more’ approach. She sported thick liner over a wash of taupe eyeshadow and a neutral lip, going for the natural with underlying Oscar-grade glamor. She complemented her jet-black cat-eye with a smooth, side-parted wavy hair reminiscent of old Hollywood. 

Florence Pugh

Dune: Part Two star swept the red carpet in a silver punk-glam look

Florence Pugh captivated the red carpet in her sartorial brand—the elegant punk ensemble. Her makeup artist, Alex Babsky, is responsible for the pop of purple shimmer in her terracotta sand-hued eyeshadow and the dusky rose lipstick. The side-swept platinum tousled bob styled by Adir Abergel finished the look.

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst is serving timeless elegance in simple white dress and a pop of red lipstick

The actress brought old Hollywood back with a classic red lip, a touch of pink on her cheeks, and dramatic, side-swept curls. Simple yet striking, Kirsten Dunst showcased a flawless glow with a gorgeous dewy finish on her skin. Makeup artist Melanie Inglessis shared that her look was all about skin, the “pop of natural glow”, and Danucera’s Cerabalm was the first and last step in the glam process. 

Billie Eilish

The What Was I Made For? songstress stunned at the red carpet with a glossy and dramatic makeup look and a classic blow-out. Emily Cheng, her makeup artist, gave her a tonal peach look: natural brushed eyebrows, classic mascara, and just a hint of over-lined lips with gloss. The skinny black liner and a mid-brown shadow under Billie’s lashes weaves the singer’s DNA with the whole experimental look, and it’s a no-brainer that it is perfection.
