The ever-gorgeous Zendaya brought ‘sultry glam’ to the red carpet. Her hair was pulled up into a precise, chic topknot allowing all attention to land on her glowing skin and fierce brows.

Sheika Daley, the celeb make-up artist behind this stunning look explains “Zendaya’s look was inspired by 1970’s Mohagany Glam with the eyes matching the beautiful chocolate color of the dress”.

The products used were all from Charlotte Tilbury’s range from skin prep to the final smatterings of powder. Check out Sheika’s Instagram ‘officialsheiks’ for a full breakdown.

Margot Robbie

With Margot’s fantastic bone structure and stunning facial features there isn’t really a lot that she can’t pull off. This understated, almost angelic look crafted by the expert hands of Pati Dubroff is no exception.

Margot’s hair was sleek and freshly trimmed by celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett. “Her dress was extremely feminine and elegant, and we wanted to take the length of her hair up to make sure that it felt very classic and modern to go with her gorgeous dress.”  Bryce used Moroccan Oil products to create this blunt, s-waved bob.

Danai Gurira

This is easily one of my favourite looks of the night! The creativity behind this really makes it stand out. I did a little research and uncovered the mastermind behind Danai’s hair; Vernon Scott, who took inspiration from African Ancestral Tribal face paint. Take a look at his mood board/visual treatment below.

Eiza Gonzalez

Fresh and young are the words that come to mind when I see this entire look. Eiza’s base and eyes were kept simple (yet flawless nonetheless) to really allow the orange toned red lipstick to pop and compliment her bright and sunny gown.

Fun fact: Most if not all products used were high street/drug store.

Jennifer Lawrence

The Best Beauty Looks from the 2018 Oscars - Jennifer Lawrence  from

I truly don’t know which part of this I like the most! The burnt orange lip, the sultry smoky eyes, those textured eighties-like blonde curls. I was not at all surprised to learn that Hung Vanngo was the genius behind J-Law’s makeup, yet again he gets it right.

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong'o -

Every time I see Lupita, I find myself trying to figure out whether she is an actual goddess or a mere mortal like the rest of us. Frankly, I’m leaning towards the former.

She is one of those rare people who, in my humble opinion, always exudes grace and a certain regal aura. So, it comes as no surprise that she is adorned and swathed in glittering hues of gold and deep royal blue. Nick Barose, the creator of this look, shared his artistic vision and inspiration on his Instagram and cited the heavy influence of the Ancient Egyptians. This is another example of pure creativity on the red carpet that I’d love to see more and more of.

Last night make up inspo on the star of @blackpanther @lupitanyongo 💅🏼💥💥💥 Egyptian #goddess of war #sekhmet lioness eyes. 🦁👁⚔️ Beauty inspos that come from museums and other culture will always be cooler ( and when u see images of your client looking like one of those classical bust you see in museum, it’s more fun ) I love the Ancient Egyptian royal colors combo, pairing gold with Egyptian blue. ✨✨✨💙 When it comes to blue as eye make up color, you can wear it with out it screaming BLUE from across the red carpet, mix bright royal blue with navy and black and you can do it with liquid liner too if you want more discreet lines ( like @lancomeofficial #Artliner in Saphire 💙) or lining inner rims for extra intensity ( #DramaLiqui pencil in Bleu Magique ✍🏿 ) and shimmery blue eye shadow ( #ColorDesign Eyeshadow in All Made Up 💙) that can be blended in with black, deep navy and grey. #lupitanyongo #oscars #academyawards #Redcarpet #Lancome #LancomeRedcarpet @lancomeofficial

Andra Day

Andra Day -

Is anyone else getting major Rihanna vibes here? I swear, I had to do a double take at first.

This dreamy, over the top look is sublime! I adore the entire floral inspiration that literally runs from head to toe.

Dusky pink smoky eye, bold brows, flawless complexion and… are those lavender buds in her hair? Honestly, all those elements combined with that heaving bosom make me believe that Andra looks as if she belongs in a Pre-Raphaelite painting.

Jennifer Garner


Does this woman ever not look radiant?

The main star of this look is without a doubt those full, voluminous locks of hair swept effortlessly to one side in true old hollywood fashion. Hair stylist Adir Abergel told Allure “I pulled a lot of images of Sofia Loren, early Elizabeth Taylor, where the hair was big and sexy yet effortless,”. He concludes with “The key to the style is shiny, healthy hair.”.

Check out this link for a behind the scenes, step by step guide to achieve this look.

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji, as per usual, looked fierce and sexy. The hair was sleek and framed her face beautifully to really show off  her bold berry lips paired with a frosty lilac eyeshadow.

Make up artist Ashunta Sheriff used a host of products ranging from her own brand foundation, cult favourite Glossier and our trusty old Vaseline. A detailed step by step breakdown can be found on her Instagram or alternatively have a read through Ashunta’s interview with Coveteur.
