Lip

(Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway)

Statement Lip:

Anne Hathaway’s soft pink lip, softens and flatters the rest of her face. While Jessica Chastain’s bold red lip adds instant high-end glamour to any look. Choose a pink or red lip to make a statement at any event. Either colour will guarantee you an on trend look.

Nudes

(Samantha Bark and Charlize Theron)

Nude Look:

These two stunning actresses both opted for nude make-up and simple hairstyles. It is a feminine and elegant look, that takes no time at all to complete at home. Opt for a glossy lip colour, as this adds more glamour to the look.

Simple Up-dos:

Salma Hayek’s chose a piled up oversized bun, accessories your up-do like Salma to add instant glamour to a simple look. Or why not opt for Jennifer Garner’s simple but elegant up-do. Soften the look  by adding texture to loose hanging hair.

Updos

Romantic Up-dos:

Copy the look of these glamorous girls for the optimum romantic wedding look. Use a sea salt spray to achieve this textured swept back look.

Waves

A favourite red carpet look. These gorgeous waves add instant glamour to any look. Add a side parting and sweep you hair to one side to really achieve that A List look. Use a styling spray or hairspray to really make sure the waves are set.

It’s that time of year again, its the Oscars. The time of year where we all sit waiting in anticipation to see what stars wore who.  This year every name you could think of was worn and there was even more sparkle and glamour. Winning the the best dressed award is almost as great as winning best actress.

In the studio we have picked out our favourite looks from the evening.
