The Secrets Behind The Best 2019 Oscars Beauty Looks
Leave it to makeup maestro Hung Vanngo to create a radiant look with a twist. Working with Chanel Beauty he pulled shades from Harrier's Bulgari necklace for a colorful smoky eye. Jennifer Yepez on hair used Frederic Fekkai products to create a classic updo.
Makeup artist Kate Synnott worked with products from Revlon, Olehenriksen, and Alleven to create a flawless finish on Graham. The look was completed with black liner and a rosy lip. Working with a ghd styler Justine Marjan pulled Graham's hair back into a sleek bun and covered it with custom Jennifer Behr velvet bows. Using a toothbrush and Tresemme hairspray she ensured zero flyaways.
Hairstylist Adir Abergel was responsible for Charlize Theron's new look on the red carpet. Tracey Cunnigham had dyed her locks earlier this week, and Abergel chopped Theron's hair into a jaw length bob only the morning of the Oscars. Chanel makeup artist Kate Lee completed the look with a red lip which popped against the new hue of her hair.
We wouldn't expect anything less than high octane glamour from Jennifer Lopez. Chris Appleton was on hair, working with ghd's and Color Wow's award-winning anti-humidity product Dream Coat to create a flawless wave with a side parting. Makeup artist Scott Barnes used his self-titled products to show off J Lo's signature red carpet glow.
Chan's emerald jewels from Bulgari inspired makeup artist Monika Blunders sweep of green liner. Working with products from Japans favorite beauty brand Clé de Peau Beauté the rest of her look was kept luminous. Clariss Anya Rubenstein was on hair, also using products by Frederic Fekkai to create a low bun with a slightly offset parting.
Hairstylist Frederic Aspiras was in charge of creating Lady Gaga's sweeping updo. Working with ghd's and Joico hair products he created a modern take on Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast At Tiffany's look. Makeup artist Sarah Nicole Tanno looked to a 'soft, fresh and young' take on makeup. She used products from Marc Jacobs Beauty with neutral tones on the eyes, finishing with a rosy nude lip.
As the face of Dolce & Gabbana, it's no surprise that Emilia Clarke worked a full face of the brand's products. Created by makeup artist Jilian Dempsey the look highlighted her bold brows and a pink lip. Jenny Cho was on hair showcasing Clarke's new chocolate brown bob colored by Nicola Clarke from the John Frieda salon in London.
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin drew inspiration from Emma Stone's Louis Vuitton dress by creating a smoky bronze eye. Using Sisley products she referenced the 60s fantasy icon Barbarella. Working with Leonor Greyl products hairstylist Mara Roszak pulled hair back for a 'structured and sculptural updo'.
Makeup artist Tym Buacharern drew upon the metallic accessories donned by Danai Gurira. Working with Black Opal beauty products skin was glowing with bronze shades swept across the eyes. Hair was perfected by Larry Sims with Biolage products allowing him to create a 'braided and laid' look.
