Oscars 2013 beauty highlights


Anne Hathaway continues to think pink, and ditches her signature red lipstick, for a, we think, far more flattering look on her pale rose complexion. Matched with her softer blow-out too, it just works.
Yes we've seen her with this look before, but Jessica Chastain knows that a bit of old fashioned glamour in the form of her favourite side swept hair and red lipstick is the recipe for red carpet success. Shame she hasn't mastered the false lash effect quite so well.
Ten out of tan on the richter scale, Heidi Klum hasn't even noticed it's February, or for that matter that it's 2013. And that boob looks very squashed.
A curl happy tong does not the modern hair-do make. But we'll give it to Reese Witherspoon for attempting to take on this year's red carpet favourite 1940's do. Just a little less effort next time.
Taking the Oscar for Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence has indeed found her beauty footing on the red carpet. Putting her best foot forward again, Lawrence worked her barely there base, balmy lips and grey blue eyes (with the help of a few extra lashes) and that super pretty up-do beautifully.
Taking it back to the old school with her hair maybe, we still like the stonger brow and more gutsy, plum toned, lipstick on Nicole Kidman .
If it ain't broke why fix it? We agree with Jennifer Aniston who took her failsafe Californian girl glow and chunky, glossy down-do down the red carpet - luckily for her, what suits her, is also bang on trend
With two dazzling dresses in one night Naomi Watts had to go low-key on the make-up, and gets it bang on with a creamy complexion, just enough definition on the eyes and a relaxed, but still elegant up-do.
If you can avert your attention away from her lashes (not models own) to Catherine Zeta-Jones's make-up you'll see a failed attempt at contouring. The idea is to use make-up to create shape and sculpting that looks like your own, rather than just a lot of heavy shadow and highlighting handywork.
Healthy wealthy hair (as seen on the catwalks for autumn winter 2013), fresh skin (it's all about BB cream rather than full on base now), and a peachy toned nude lipstick for Sandra Bullock , makes for a great little Hollywood update.
Charlize Theron takes her Mad Max hair hangover and softens it with her failsafe girly ethereal sheeny, glowing make-up and gently lined eye.
Kate Beckinsale just about saves herself from a serious bad hair day (just one too many curly wurly prom girl hair pieces) by getting the London look with flash of gold on the eyes using Rimmel's ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner and a pop of Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bulletproof in gold on the inner corners.
Renée Zellweger asked her make-up artist for an "easy glamour look." So using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in Nude and Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze, with a little Matte Eye Colour in Truffle and Eye Liner in Noir, Kristofer Buckle created this "sexy, pretty and fresh look." Shame Laura Mercier doesn't do hairspray really.
