You May Want to Sit—These Oscars Beauty Looks Actually Stirred Our Soul

Following the beauty-centric pandemonium provoked by last weekend’s Super Bowl halftime performance (thank you for that, J.Lo and Shakira!) comes an equivalent, fiery ball of beauty fervor courtesy of the 92nd Academy Awards. In celebration of the year’s absolute best in film, all of our favorite stars have spilled onto the L.A. red carpet in their absolute finest designer gowns, jewels, and—our personal favorite—head-turning hair and makeup looks that are so good we’ve created a designated folder on our iPhones for safekeeping. 

Thus far, the 2020 award show beauty ambiance hasn’t disappointed—the Grammys red carpet was studded with too many crystalized eyelids to count, the SAG Awards felt like a unanimous ode to classic Old Hollywood glamour, and the Golden Globes served up a decidedly minimalist aesthetic on a sizzling, gilded platter.

Obviously, the bar was set high for the Oscars—aka the most anticipated award show of the entire season. Curious to see how your favorite A-list arrival wore their strands and skin? Ahead, there’s enough head-turning beauty inspiration to keep your vibe afloat for the rest of 2020. Keep scrolling for all the best beauty looks from this year’s Oscars red carpet. 

Glossy waves? Check. Crimson-painted pout? Double check. Radiant skin? Triple check. Shimmery eyelids? Quadruple check.  The must-have beauty product: T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer ($285) 

Considering it was raining in L.A. during the Oscars red carpet, we’d say Monáe’s hood was a stunning (and perhaps strategic?!) success. But we also need to applaud that hot red lip and fluttery gaze. The must-have beauty product: Lashify “Drama” Gossamer Lashes ($25)

TG Eilish was scheduled to perform during this year’s Oscars because we already had post-Grammys withdrawal from the singer’s signature edginess.

The combination of Dever’s visibly dewy cheeks and perfect cat-eye has us speechless.

Beetz’s chocolate-hued smoky eyes are the perfect antithesis to the rest of her makeup featuring glowing skin and subtle, glossy nude lips.  The must-have beauty product: Nexxus Comb Thru Volume Finishing Mist ($14)

Sporting flowing, Old Hollywood–esque waves, Kaling keeps her red carpet look classic with rosy cheeks and polished black liner.

Dern is always a vision on the red carpet. We’re especially on board with this pretty half-up hairstyle and her fresh, less-is-more makeup aesthetic.

The actress always keeps us on our toes with her bold beauty choices (which we love, by the way). Pink glimmery eyes? Yes. We see you, Regina King.

In case you hadn’t already boarded the hair-accessories train that’s been gaining major traction, Ferrera just made a case for it that you absolutely can’t say no to. The must-have beauty product: Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Smooth & Shine Cream ($7). Next: All the Oscars Red Carpet Looks That Left Us Speechless
