The Oscars: Beauty Inspiration

The Oscars come at the perfect time of year right before wedding season kicks into full swing!  What better way to get makeup and hair ideas for your special day than to look at what these beautiful ladies do on Hollywood's biggest night.  I added in pictures of the gorgeous dresses as well, just because they are so pretty!

Jennifer Lawrence:  For her first Oscar win she certainly looked the part with soft smokey eyes and romantic bun up-do.  I also loved the back necklace, what an amazing way to highlight a toned back.


Reese Witherspoon:  Old Hollywood waves and smokey blue shadow.  One of my favourite looks of the night.


Charlize Theron: Beautiful glowing skin and soft makeup looks amazing with her short pixie cut.  


Jessic Chastain: Red lips, winged liner and vintage waves.  Love!


Kerry Washington: Look at those lashes!!  Beautiful matte look and soft wavy hair.


Sandra Bullock: Keeps it simple with straight hair and soft makeup.


Jennifer Garner: Smokey plum eyes go beautifully with her plum dress and wavy updo.


Salma Hayek: Gorgeous smokey eyes and chic bun with gold jewelled accents.


Amanda Seyfried: Purple cat eyes with a texturized up-do. 


Amy Adams: Flawless skin and a simple up-do look amazing with teardrop earrings.
