Most of Hollywood chose to wear their hair pulled back, up and away from the face. Not an easy look to pull off for everyone, but beauties like Nicole Richie, Zoe Saldana, and Jennifer Lopez certainly wore it well.
Nicole Richie was sporting an elegant ballerina bun, which stylists have shown on the runways for the new year. It's a sophisticated and refined look, and turns the spotlight on one's features beautifully.
Jennifer Lopez opted for a 'messier' up-do, with a few wispy tendrils peeking out, which still showed off her sexy side. And of course, statuesque beauty Charlize Theron wowed the crowd with a side-parted do, softly tucked behind in back.
As far as the Academy Award makeup styles, red lips were hot, and Sandra Bullock and Charlize were not shy about putting on a very bold lip. You can't tell by the photo of Sandra here, but those lips were dark red on the television screen.
There were mainly softer lips in pale, neutral shades on most celebrities last evening. Zoe, Nicole, and Jennifer chose a stronger eye, instead. Amazing cat eye makeup. Just look at Nicole Richie. Her eyes are mesmerizing. Absolutely stunning. It appears to be a silver eyeshadow with a black liquid liner.
And as you know, Jennifer Lopez loves to highlight her cheekbones. And once again, her makeup is perfectly applied. Makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuween used NARS Orgasm Illuminator to achieve those highly defined cheekbones.
