Our favorite beauty looks from the 2015 Oscars red carpet
The Best Actress winner was glowing from the moment she stepped onto the red carpet. Though her glittery gown may have played a part, we like to think that what really made her shine was her flawless skin and classic makeup. 

Julianne's makeup artist, Elaine Offers, prepped her skin for a perfect finish with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. Then she added a hint of L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Pink

For the eyes, she used a mixture of taupes from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude (available in mid-April) and highlighted with light lilac hues to complement Julianne's coloring. 

As for the lips, long-wear is a must. And this deep-burgundy shade, Raisin Revival, was the winner. 

Julianne turned to nail guru, Tom Bachik, for what he calls "a clean, simple look that really played up the beaded adornment accents of her gown." 

He started with a coat of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Wishful Pinking. Then topped it with an iridescent shimmer -- L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Charmed, I'm Sure.

Leave it to this diva to make a princess gown look totally fresh and not at all froufrou. 

It's the sleek high ponytail that gives JLo's look that extra edge.

Mary Phillips, JLo's makeup artist, said she "stuck to a monochromatic palette of warm peaches and diffused bronzes paired with a cool-toned pink lip."

Here's exactly what she used! 

Brows: L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in Blonde

Eyes: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude (available in mid-April) accented with Infallible Smokissime Powder Eyeliner in Taupe Smoke and Voluminous Miss Manga Black Angel Mascara

Lips: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Timeless Rosé.

JLo's main manicurist, Tom Bachik, also took a cue from the peachy tones in the princess gown using L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Mauvelous
It's not always easy to pull off a bold lip when your gown is equally as eye-catching. Naomi does it seamlessly. 

Pati Dubroff, Naomi's makeup artist, kept the makeup simple with a focus only on the outer corners of the eyes and on the lips.

The leading lady and new mom looked sexy and chic from head to toe. 

Zoe's makeup artist wanted to highlight the actress's "new mom glow," so she played up the eyes and opted for a soft lip color. 

She used L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude (available in mid-April), applying the lighter colors of the palette in the middle of the eyelid and darker colors toward the corner of the eye. 

For the lips, she chose L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Timeless Rosé.

Then, she set the whole look with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Hairstylist Mara Roszak wanted Zoe's hair to mimic the vibe of her jaw-dropping gown, so she opted for a sexy, undone updo. 

After prepping Zoe's hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray, she roughed it up a bit and created a center part. 

Next, she used a one-inch barrel curling iron to define a few choice curls and gathered the strands into a low pin-tucked bun. 

No beauty roundup would be complete without talking about this gal's red-carpet hair! 

Emma's go-to hairstylist, Mara Roszak, said, "Emma's red hair against her gorgeous, lacy green gown reminded me of a beautiful watercolor painting, so I wanted the hair to have a similar feel."

We think this asymmetrical, side-swept style nails it. 

And, you can master this look with just a few tools: 

Start by prepping your hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Elastic Curl Mousse, then rough-dry your strands. 

Next, create waves with a one-inch barrel curling iron and pin to let set. 

Last, sweep the hair into a loose chignon and spray with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold

It's clear (ahem) that Jen was going for a sexy, nude look from top to bottom, starting with a glittery gown that left very little to the imagination and ending at her fingertips with the perfect pink polish. 
Tom Bachik, Jen's go-to mani guy, found the winning color combination in one coat of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in How Romantic, topped with one coat of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Color in Wishful Pinking.

​This season, the Oscar's were everything! Who won? Don't ask us. We pretty much only watch for the red carpet (okay, not only, but definitely mostly!). Our eagle eyes spotted everything from skillful contouring, to perfect cat-eye-lined peepers, you know, the typical beauty go-tos. But, we also saw a few unexpected beauty looks –- think high ponytails, wine-colored lips, asymmetrical side-swept bobs, and more. Basically, we've got enough beauty-goodness to keep us satisfied until next awards season.
