2016 Oscars Beauty Looks

Rooney Mara

The 88th Annual Academy Awards were held last night, Feb. 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and The Makeup Examiner Team has all of the beauty looks for your favorites stars!

Inspiration: “I wanted to create a statement updo that had high polish with great architectural edge that mimicked the lines of the Givenchy dress.”Adir Abergel for Rooney Mara

Get the Look:
  • I started by using Pai Shau Bipasic Infusion from roots to ends on dry hair to create a lustrous foundation
  • I then flat ironed the hair completely straight so that it had the fluidity I need to create the sleek updo 
  • Then I sectioned the hair from temple to temple to create the first severe parting and pulled into a high ponytail.
  • I created my second severe parting just below the top ponytail and made another ponytail from mid ear to mid ear that hid the first ponytail. 
  • ​I sprayed the entire head with hair spray to eliminate any frayed ends or layers.
  • Then I flipped the ponytail up and tucked the ends into the second section of the ponytail 
  • Finally I took the last section of hair and wrapped it around an elastic band, and secured into a low chignon and pinned it into place.



Brie Larson

Inspiration: “Brie wore a gorgeous, royal blue, custom Gucci dress. I wanted her hair to have a celestial but fresh look to complement the dress. We did a modern half-up, half-down style.”  -Mara Roszak, L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Stylist

Get The Look:
  • Mara started by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream to Brie’s damp hair.
  • She parted the hair in the center and then blow dried with a round brush.
  • Once dry, she used a ghd platinum styler to touch up the hair and help with any frizz or flyaways while keeping it healthy and shiny, especially with the humid weather.
  • She then sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray all over the hair.
  • Then, using a ghd curve Classic Curl Iron 1”, she created soft, loose waves throughout the hair.
  • Once done waving, she brushed the hair out with a boar bristle brush and applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum on the middle and ends of hair for extra shine.
  • Next, she took the front pieces of hair by the hairline on both sides and twisted them, bringing them to the back of hair. She pinned in place and then put a piece of fabric that matched Brie’s belt on top of the pins, wrapping the extra hair that was hanging around the fabric.
  • Lastly, she sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray all over the hair for hold and L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist for extra shine.



Julianne Moore

Inspiration: “The dress is a fantastic, architectural halter with lace and dark jewel detailing - I've never seen anything like it so am excited with how the makeup look complements it.” -Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris

Get The Look:
  • Elaine started by prepping skin with Revitalift Daily Volumizing Moisturizer and Revitalift Miracle Blur.
  • Overtop foundation; she blended Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer as a spot-concealer, which left a fresh finish in its wake.
  • For warm contour, subtle shape and definition, Elaine opted for Infallible Pro Contour Palette all over the face.
  • Before applying Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Pink to cheeks, Elaine worked True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden onto the cheekbones and bridge of nose for “lit from within” results.
  • Elaine turned to Colour Riche Eye Shadow in Paris Beach to neutralize and highlight the browbone. On lids, she blended a combination of shade Quartz Fume and Infallible 24H Eye Shadow in Eternal Black, pressing both in with a dampened brush and resulting in a shine that played into Julianne’s dress.
  • Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter was used in waterlines to sharpen up natural eye shape, and lashlines were accented with brown liner.
  • Elaine curled lashes, applied a few coats of primer and topped off with Voluminous Superstar Mascara.
  • After using a lip stain for shape, Elaine topped off with Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick in Jennifer’s Nude for neutral, nude coverage.



Naomi Watts
I
nspiration: “Naomi wore this beautiful, art-deco, sequined dress. We wanted her hair to have a classic 1930s Hollywood vibe with a modern twist.” -Cervando for L’Oréal Paris

Get The Look:
  • Cervando started by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse to damp hair, combing through so the product is evenly distributed throughout the hair.
  • He then used L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream on the ends of hair and parted hair to the side.
  • Next, Cervando rough dried hair about 90% of the way to create a lot of volume, texture and density.
  • After blow drying, he used a small 1 inch round boar bristle brush and dried hair section by section, making sure to blow hair back and away from the face.
  • Once done with drying the front sections, Cervando rolled hair into 3 Velcro rollers for added body, then let hair set for 20 minutes.
  • After removing the rollers, he combed through hair using a wire brush, blending hair from top to bottom.
  • Next, he used a flat iron to wave the hair and locked in the look with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Hairspray.

Makeup: Hung Vanngo for L’Oréal Paris

Inspiration: “Tonight, the inspiration for Naomi’s look was a flashback to the 1970’s with a smoky eye and vibrant lip. We opted for a grey, slate smoky eye and a red, velvety lip.”

Get The Look:
  • Hung started by prepping Naomi’s skin with Revitalift Triple Power Serum and Revitalift Triple Power Moisturizer all over.
  • He then focused on Naomi’s base. First, Hung used True Match Concealer to even out Naomi’s skin tone. He then applied True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation to give Naomi’s skin a fresh, dewy finish.
  • Hung then used the Infallible Pro-Contour Kit to contour Naomi’s cheeks. To add a soft pop of color on top, he used True Match Blush in Baby Blossom.
  • He then groomed her eyebrows with Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit.
  • For Naomi’s eyes, Hung used Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in Slate on her upper lash line. He blended the eyeliner on the lash line in an outward motion.
  • To continue the grey smoky eye, he applied Colour Riche Dual Effects Eye Shadow in Incredible Grey, using only the grey and silver shades in the palette.
  • Next, he finished off the eye look with Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara; launching March/April) on Naomi’s lashes.
  • To complete the look, Hung gave Naomi a bright red lip with Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Rouge Envy.



Rachel McAdams

Inspiration: “Rachel’s dress is a deep forest green that is super classic and elegant. For the nails, we wanted to give her an elegant, glamorous look. We went with a full coverage nude to complement her green dress, as well as her look for the after parties.” -Tom Bachik, L’Oréal Paris Global Nail Artist

Get The Look:
  • Rachel’s nail look featured a custom blended color. You can recreate this look at home using Infallible Pro-Last Nail Color in both Passionate Petal and Forever Mink.
  • To start, apply one thin coat of Passionate Petal as the base color on the nail. This gives the nail a pretty pink undertone.
  • Next, apply a thin coat of Forever Mink on top of the dry, pink nail. The end result is a full coverage nude, with a modern twist and pop of pink.
  • Then, apply the clear topcoat from Infallible Pro-Last Nail Color to give the nail amplified color and shine.
  • To finish the look, apply a couple drops of Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil to rehydrate the cuticles and bring an overall glow.



Heidi Klum ... Nails

Inspiration: “Heidi’s dress for the carpet is a beautiful purple color. We opted for a classic, full coverage nude, channeling the 1960’s Bridget Bardot era. The nude that we chose was a tonal, skin tone nude." -Tom Bachik, L’Oréal Paris Global Nail Artist

Get The Look:
  • Heidi’s nail look featured a custom blended color. You can recreate this look at home using Color Riche Nail Color in Walk on the Beach.
  • Apply two coats of Walk on the Beach to the nail to give a full coverage, nude look.
  • Next, apply Colour Riche Nail Color in Top of the Line to seal in shine.
  • To finish the look, apply a couple drops of Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil to rehydrate the cuticles and bring an overall glow.




Reese Witherspoon stunned at last night’s Academy Awards in a gorgeous deep blue fit-and-flare gown, which inspired Nexxus New York Salon Care Celebrity Stylist Lona Vigi to create a sleek straight hairstyle. "We decided a straight hair tucked back behind the ears complimented the elegant neckline of the dress perfectly to create a classically glamorous look," said Lona Vigi.

Get The Look:
  • On Reese's wet hair, I applied a small amount of Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Gel and Oil Infinite Nourishing Oil to create a sleek and sophisticated style that complemented her beautiful dress.
  • I blow dried her hair with a ghd air hairdryer and used a ghd paddle brush to keep the look sleek and smooth.
  • Once dry, I ran a ghd platinum styler throughout her hair. I love this flat iron because it heats to the optimal 365 degrees so I know I’m not damaging my clients’ hair.
  • Then, I applied a small amount of Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Nourishing Oil to create a shiny and smooth finish to the final look.
  • To keep the hair back and in place, I sprayed Nexxus New York Salon Care Maxximum Hold Finishing Mist.




Chrissy Teigen walked last night's red carpet in a stunning, embellished Marchesa gown with her hair pulled back into an elaborate braided style created by Christian Wood using TRESemmé products. Christian created the undone, yet elegant look to juxtapose the glamorous, grown-up feel of the gown and keep Chrissy's overall look youthful, yet elegant.

Get The Look:
  • Prep hair with the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume reverse wash system, applying the Pre-Wash Conditioner, followed by the Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo to get a great base.
  • Apply the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Mousse throughout the lengths of the hair, leaving the ends out, and then apply the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximizer to the ends for a soft, voluminous texture. 
  • Using a round brush, blow dry the hair smooth with the Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q Hair Dryer for volume at the roots. PRO TIP: It's important to use a powerful dryer when blow drying the hair to help cut the drying time in half. The Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q Hair Dryer uses 70% more air pressure, allowing for much faster drying time.
  • Next, take the hair at the crown and pin it away. Take two one-inch sections on both sides of the ears and braid all the way down, while using the fingertips to rub the hair and create texture.
  • Release the hair at the crown and begin to braid down the middle and combined the 5 braids in one hand and secure with an elastic. Using a handful of bobby pins, secure braids for extra hold.
  • Take the lengths of the hair and create a larger braid and secure with an elastic, leaving out the ends at the bottom.
  • To complete the look, pull out loose pieces around the face for beautiful, airy volume. Rub the braids with fingertips to create a soft texture and spray the finished look with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hairspray, for a hold that lasts all night but isn't stiff or crunchy.

FKA Twigs - Makeup by Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist

 Lady Gaga - Makeup by Sarah Tanno for NARS Cosmetics

Key NARS products used: Himalia Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Violet Atom Illuminating Multiple, Greta Audacious Lipstick


Alexa Chung - Makeup by Tamah K. for NARS Cosmetics

 Claire Danes - Makeup by Matin for NARS Cosmetics

Beauty Inspiration: "I was looking at Chinese illustrations from the 20s and loved the look of a maroon wash on the eyes and cheeks and stained dark cherry or oxblood red on the lips. I wanted to use a version of that which was suitable on the red carpet."

Fei Fei Sun - Makeup by Maki Ryoke for NARS Cosmetics
  
Beauty Inspiration: "The inspiration for the look was Babe Paley traveling to China in the 30s. The eyeliner really had to be created for Fei Fei’s face; it was quite thick to enhance her eyes.

 Reese Witherspoon - Makeup by Molly Stern for NARS Cosmetics

All NARS products, except where noted, are available online at NARS and NARS boutiques.


Beyoncé - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: “I was inspired when I saw Beyoncé with all of her hair off her face. It automatically gave her an awakened, child-like look that I wanted to enhance with a bit of an anime vibe. I also wanted to play up her makeup since her Givenchy gown was long, sheer and covered in jewels,” shared Sir John.

Step 1: Prep face with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation focusing on keeping the T-zone matte. Sir John worked to play up her luminous skin tone and over-exaggerate a fresh, youthful appearance
Step 2: To create contrast, he mixed L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden and Rose (Available July 2015) and applied to the cheeks. To further sculpt the cheek and add dimension, he applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, which also helps absorb light
Step 3: Sir John made Beyoncé’s tan skin really pop by directly contrast with a pastel mint lid. He created a mod eye by applying a mix of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Endless Sea and Infinite Sky
Step 4: For a “deer in the headlights” look, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible to the top lid and into the lash line. He purposely kept the bottom lash line clean with no liner and mascara to further enhance the wide eye finish
Step 5: To complete the look, he added tons of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara so eyes popped, and added a touch of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Neverending Nutmeg to simply and subtly enhances the shape of lips


Karlie Kloss - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sir John 

Beauty Inspiration: Sir John was inspired by the elongated silhouette of Karlie’s Versace dress, which lead to the decision of creating an enhanced summery, beachy look with a fresh, modern, evening twist.

Step 1: Sir John prepped skin with the super-rich L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Re-Volumizing Daily Moisturizer to create a flawless, moisturized base 
Step 2: Then he used L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Ice (Available July 2015) for a glowing, luminous complexion
Step 3: Next, he blended L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden (Available July 2015) to sculpt and define Karlie’s cheekbones
Step 4: Following the silhouette of Karlie’s dress, Sir John opted for a fresh eye look and elongated the eye applying L’Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Green Ivy to the top of the eyelid. By starting the liner at the middle of the eye and drawing under the lash line, the eye appears more open
Step 5: To create maximum impact, Sir John added L’Oréal Paris Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen in Black to the lash line, followed by the several layers of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara for extra intensity
Step 6: To complete the look and create a super nude lip, Sir John applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Color in Everlasting Caramel

Karlie Kloss (Hair) - Makeup Artist: L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Karlie wore a gorgeous Versace gown, which automatically feels a little sexy. I really wanted her hair to be moveable and soft, so we went for a tousled, glamorous look,” shared Mara.

Step 1: To start, Mara applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray to damp hair
Step 2: Next, she blew out hair starting at the front and using a round brush around the face and sides, rough drying the back
Step 3: Then, Mara wrapped random sections of hair around a 1 ¼ curling iron, keeping the ends out for smooth and soft waves
Step 4:  She sprayed the hair with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold to lock the look in place and then brushed out the hair a bit to soften the wave
Step 5: Next, she applied a few spritzes of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare High Lift Creation Spray for more body and hold
Step 6: Last, Mara sprayed more L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold all over hair to complete the look


Carey Mulligan (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Carey wore this gorgeous Balenciaga gown with a stunning collar so, because of the high neck, we wanted to put the hair up. I love this look – it’s ethereal with a slightly modern edge that still feels effortless,” shared Mara

Step 1: Mara started by spraying the entire head with L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, then rough dried hair with a blow dryer
Step 2: Next, she pin curled the sections around Carey’s face to give extra height to the look
Step 3: Mara split the back of the hair into three sections, fastening each section into a pony tail and then wrapping into individual buns, locking in with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold
Step 4: Next, she let out the front pieces and touched them up with a curling iron before pinning them to the back of the hair
Step 5: With a tiny bit of L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold on her fingertips, Mara loosened the front pieces for added softness around the face


Lily Collins (Hair) - L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hairstylist, Mara Roszak  

Beauty Inspiration: “Lily wore classic Chanel. We’ve already done so much with her short haircut, so for this look we really wanted a more timeless, simple look.”

Step 1: Mara trimmed a few pieces of Lily’s hair up front to give a shorter bang look
Step 2: Next, she used a ½ wide curling iron to curl random pieces of hair
Step 3: Then, Mara applied a minimal amount of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel as a shield to keep hair in place
Step 4: She sprayed L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold onto her hands and pieced out bangs using her fingertips
Step 5: To finish the look, Mara turned to L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray, which smoothed hair and locked in the style


Julianne Moore - Makeup Artist: Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “Julianne wore a gorgeous black Riccardo Tisci gown with jet beading and corseted accents.  She debuted a shorter hairstyle and we used her signature makeup color palette of taupes and plums, amping it up a bit for the occasion,” shared Elaine.

Step 1: Elaine prepped skin with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Volume Filler Daily Volumizing Moisturizer
Step 2: She then blended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation with Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer for a combination of coverage and luminosity
Step 3: To brighten up the face, Elaine dotted her go-to L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream under the eyes, down the center of the nose and across the top lip
Step 4: Next, she penciled in brows using L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in Blonde, and the upper lashlines with Infallible Smokissime Eyeliner in Brown Smoke
Step 5: Elaine defined eyes with a selection of rich plum and chocolate hues from the NEW L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude Smokey, adding Infallible Silkissime Highlighter to the waterlines to open up the eyes
Step 6: Next, she finished off the eyes with coats of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara
Step 7: Last, Elaine used both L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Lip Colour in Raisin Revival and Mesmerizing Merlot to concoct Julianne’s signature plum lip look


Jennifer Lopez - Makeup Artist: Mary Phillips for L’Oréal Paris

Beauty Inspiration: “All I have to say is RED DRAGON! The hair is slicked back and very fashion forward in its ‘finish’ and texture, but very tasteful. The makeup really ties in the red dragon theme, but in a very subtle way. She has that classic JLO skin, we kept the glow, the tone- and all of those elements that people love, but I would definitely call this glow a ‘special occasion’ glow. You're going to see a lot of reds, oranges, peaches, but in a very diffused blown out way. We play a lot with merging her eye color with her cheek color, which is Eastern Asian-inspired, and pays a bit of a homage to the disco 70's era. Her lips are a golden coral and her eyes have a very thin black liquid liner line on the upper lash only. You might notice an overall golden finish to her skin, which is because I dusted that everywhere as a finishing touch to play up the crystals in her breathtaking red Versace gown. She almost looks ethereal. She floated in with this dress,” shared Mary.

Step 1: To start, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur, which is great for filling in the depths of fine lines and allowed foundation to glide on with ease
Step 2: Mary used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray before, during and after makeup. She explained that it gives skin the perfect finish making it her skin-must
Step 3: Next, she applied L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation in Classic Tan all over the face
Step 4: To brighten and plump in all the right ways, Mary added two-in-one L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer
Step 5: To create the signature bronzed glow and for a bit of sheen, Mary applied Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer
Step 6:  Mixing Lancôme Limited Edition Blush Subtil Crème in Coral Alize, Brise Rosee, and Rouge Mistral and L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Classic Wine created a super slick balmy blush, which Mary patted all along the temples, tops of the cheek bone and into the eye lids. She also dabbed the mixture at the very center of her mouth and blended outwards, which she described as almost a faint "popsicle mouth” look
Step 7: For the eyes, Mary applied L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara in Black, which fanned lashes out and added thickness primarily to their tail ends
Step 8: For bold color and precise, long-lasting application in one stroke, Mary applied L’Oréal Paris The Super Slim Liner by Infallible
Step 9: Mary then applied L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Plumper in Transparent, which she credits as having the perfect hold
Step 10: To complete the look, she added a shiny punch of a subtle color using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss in Peach Fuzz -- the luster and sparkle tied the look together to completion

All products are available at online at L’Oréal Paris and mass and drugstores nationwide.


Gabrielle Union – Got2b Celebrity Hairstylist, Larry Sims

Beauty Inspiration: “We wanted to give her something super fresh, with a rock star vibe at the same time” says Sims. He adds, “I gave her a razored bob cut that is shorter in the back with elongated tips in the front, and layered throughout.”

Step 1: Once Larry finished cutting Gabrielle’s hair, he went section by section starting at the nape of the neck and sprayed Got2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm to protect hair from heat styling
Step 2: Next, Larry set his blow dryer to cold on the highest setting to give her strands a wispy and voluminous finish
Step 3: He then took Got2b Playful Crème Pomade, rubbed it into his palms and ran the product through her hair for added texture
Step 6: Next, he used a few drops of Got2b Glossy Anti-frizz Shine Serum for additional shine and frizz control, and finished with Got2b Mind Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray to set the look

Got2b products are available at DrugStore.com


Katie Holmes – Celebrity Stylist DJ Quintero

Beauty Inspiration: For the 2015 MET Gala, Katie Holmes paid homage to Chinese style with an elaborate, navy, Zac Posen dress embroidered with Asian-inspired clouds and side cut-outs.

Step 1: On damp hair, apply a dab of Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream to the ends only
Step 2: Blow dry using a medium-sized YS Park round brush, keeping the front and side pieces straight and the back of the hair beveled inward
Step 3: Run a 1 ½ inch Harry Josh flatiron through hair, from root to tip
Step 4: Shake hair and spray Alterna Haircare Caviar Perfect Texture Finishing Spray throughout for body and texture
Step 5: Spray Alterna Haircare Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Shine Spray throughout for smoothness and shine

Alterna Hair Care products are available online and select salons.

STEP 5: Spray the entire head with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold and let it cool down
STEP 5: Remove all the Velcro rollers and brush hair with a paddle brush to create a beautiful smooth finish
STEP 6: After hair is brushed out, backcomb the crown of the head to give it that great 60’s vibe with a touch of height - a nod to Brigitte Bardot
STEP 7: Pull the hair into a low ponytail, making sure that all the height stays at the crown
STEP 8: Wrap the ponytail with a white elastic band for contrast
STEP 9: Finish the look by applying L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for a high gloss finish
