Best Of Beauty ~ Oscars 2016


So what were your thoughts about the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet beauty?

Frankly I was super under-whelmed. Sometimes it seems as though in a mad effort to look casually cool some of the ladies looked as if they didn’t realize that this is one of the two most glamorous nights in the American year, the other being the Met Gala.
I hate seeing ladies underdone on such a big night.

ho-hum hair and makeup on Alicia Vikander

I was so disappointed in the absolutely gorgeous Alicia Vikander’s hair and makeup for the red carpet. She looked like she was on her way to the supermarket. Or Home Depot. Maybe it was just the hair that bugged me? Because her after party look was fabulous.

At the post-Oscars Vanity fair party Alicia looked amazing. This would have been a far better Red Carpet look.

Brie Larson’s hair and makeup were also too casual in my opinion.
The hair was awful, and the makeup didn’t compliment her eyes.

I really didn’t get it. She looked so much better later in the evening at the Vanity Fair party.

Doesn’t she look lovely here? Why not this look for the Oscars Red Carpet??

My absolute favorite look on the red carpet this year, second to none, was the incredible makeup on Olivia Munn, created by Patrick Tabere.

That lip was everything! Patrick used a combo of 
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipsticks 96 and 90,  offset by blush 76 Frivole and 55 by Chanel. 

If you are going to stand out for being fabulous, Oscar night is the night to do it.

Olivia’s after party makeup change was also gorgeous.


Other notables were Charlize Theron for being Charlize Theron.


Margot Robbie was perfection.


Jennifer Lawrence’s hair was fantastic and her eye game was strong both for the red carpet (she ran in right as the ceremony was beginning)

Rooney Mara’s makeup packed a fierce punch – that brow!!! that lip! that eye!


Chrissie Tiegan’s bronze and gold makeup was lovely, and her wispy, soft hairdo complimented her total look.


Saoirse Ronan’s eye makeup was the perfect counterpoint to her dress. (which I thought was fabulous.)


Rachel McAdams hair and makeup were both perfect.
