Red Carpet // The Academy Awards 2016 Style & Beauty

Oscars, beauty, style, Academy Awards, red carpet, Saoirse Ronan, Rachel McAdams, emerald dress, Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Vikander, Brie Larson, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Kerry Washington, Versace, Neutrogena

Whether you watched the Oscars on Sunday or not, there were a lot of trends in both style & beauty that I think we're going to see all year long...

One such trend I noticed was the color green, which we saw as emerald on Saoirse Ronan and Rachel McAdams, and as seafoam on Cate Blanchett. You can shop some great every day and special occasion green dresses below...

Another was simple hairstyles, which again we saw on Saoirse who wore her hair down and wavy, on Sophia Vergara with a simple pony, and also on Jennifer Lawrence with a sleek lob. Others opted for a simple half-up look, including Alicia Vikander and Brie Larson.

My three favorite looks of the night through were Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Alicia Vikander in custom Louis Vuitton, and Kerry Washington in Versace. Their gowns were unique and stunning, but still classic and elegant for the evening.


I also thought their hair and make-up were perfect as well. If you're looking to recreate J.Law's sleek lob, I recommend this flat iron from Sedu (which I purchased using Birchbox points).

For both Alicia's and Kerry's hair looks, you'll want to add some volume to your strands, so I recommend this volumizing spray from Serge Normant. I received a sample in my December Birchbox and so far I love it. It really does add volume to your hair!



Kerry's beauty look is also super easy to get at home as well because, guess what, she used Neutrogena products! Yup, drug store products on the red carpet - how awesome is that?

She started with Neutrogena's HydroBoost Water Gel (which I LOVE - read my review) and the Shine Control Primer. The only non-Neutrogena item was her foundation, which was Marc Jacobs.

On her eyes, Kerry used Neutrogena's Long Wear Eyeshadow in Cool Plum, the Nourishing Eye Liner in Cosmic Black, and the Healthy Volume Mascara. On her cheeks, she wore Neutrogena Healthy Custom Glow Blush and Bronzer in Raisin Glow and on her lips she used Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Healthy Peach.
