TRENDS OF THE OSCARS!

Hollywood’s most glamorous It girls took the stage at this year’s Oscars, and wow did they shine! Accenting the glitter and glitz were fresh faces, pops of color, and subtle tones that make Tinsletown’s most fabulous night a memorable one! Here are some of our favorite makeup trends of the red carpet:

Jennifer Lawrence Blog

The Silver Linings Playbook star took home her first Oscar last night and looked stunning doing it! We loved Jennifer Lawrence’s sultry mauve pout, and you can replicate the seductive color with Dolce & Gabbana’s Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in “Nude Mauve.”

Jenna Dewan BlogPositively glowing, mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum walked the red carpet with the ease of a veteran and hunky hubby Channing Tatum by her side. We adored her smudged out liner that really gave her a subtly sexy cat eye. You can do the same with this Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in “Stingray.”

Amanda Seyfried BlogAlways shining Amanda Seyfried went from girl-next-door to glamour queen with her use of a deep amethyst on the outer corners of her eye, which complimented her pale-hued gown. Capture the same on your lids with Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in “Psychedelic Sister.”

Charlize Theron BlogCharlize Theron always knows how to turn a few heads, and Oscar night was no exception. She didn’t overpower her recently chopped locks by using a pale nude lip color. We love Buxom’s Big & Healthy Lip Polish in “Samantha” to copy this seductive pout!

Reese Witherspoon Blog

America’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon revived yesteryear Hollywood glamour with her soft curls and vamped up royal blue dress. But, what really polished her look was those perfectly rosy cheeks! Smashbox Love Me Blush in “Idolize Me” will help you do the same!

FUTURISTIC BEAUTY LOOKS

Call it the Avatar-effect but it seems that designers and makeup artists alike can’t get enough of the futuristic makeup trend. These looks are magical, innovative and edgy! Let your creativity go wild and create a futuristic of your own. Here’s a little inspiration from us at Chic Studios:

  

Icey white shimmerscreams futuristic! Recreate this look from the pages of Vogue China with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Iced


Here is a look spotted on the runway at the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2012 show. Pink is not just for your lips my dear! Use Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Woodstock to rim your eyes with a flash of Barbie-pink.

Lip tattoos are growing more and more popular and there are a plethora of fun shades, patterns and even glitter for you to try! One of our favorite brands is Violent Lips Temporary Lip Tattoos
