In typical Oscar fashion, the night was filled with sophistication and glamour. All the ladies (and men) looked breathtaking, and we took note of some of the night’s beauty trends that we could incorporate into our everyday style.
Light pink/ nude lips
This is my favorite trend—and I pray it will last forever. Nude lips are easy to wear, and they have that retro vibe going on. A nude lip feels very ’60s but not in a dated way. You can sport your nude lips from day to night, with a swift change of eye color. In the morning, wear mascara and some eyeliner and pair with your nude lips for a girl-next-door look. For an evening rendezvous, pair your nude hue with a smokey eye. Avoid frosty nudes if you’re fair-skinned. Morena women may try the warm nude pink to brighten up the complexion.
Defining your eyes with eyeliner and great lashes works wonders. This is an easy way to up the ante, and everyone will certainly take notice. Make sure to define your lip with a lip color that will brighten your complexion. A good lip color can make or break your look—in general, people can’t help but focus on a good lip color.
The leading ladies looked extra radiant and fresh—and while this is a beauty trend that all women aspire for, it takes effort to execute. Good moisturizer is vital, so you need to be aware if your moisturizer is suited for your skin type. A good skincare routine that is hiyang or suited to oneself is crucial for any woman, at any age.
I recently purchased Dior’s Dream Skin based on its promise of immediate radiance. I like it because it’s easy to use and will take me through my busy day at work. A friend advised me that application of foundation or tinted moisturizer is crucial in establishing the base of your overall makeup. Wearing your foundation well does not mean piling it on your face—it means dabbing lightly and blending properly. This technique will shave years off, and you will look bright and youthful.
Keep your hair away from your face, whether you wear it up or wear it down. This is a general rule that you can take from morning meetings to evening formal events.
It would look absurd to wear full-on makeup and have unkempt hair. Find a hairdo that matches your features and personality. Wear wavy hair for a fun and flirty look, and wear your hair straight for a fashion-forward feel.
