Lupita N'yongo's Lip ColorLupita N'yongo's Lip Color
THURSDAY, MARCH 06, 2014
Here's our Winner of the night! Lupita N'yongo rocked a gorgeous periwinkle gown with a complementary peach lip. The lip color isn't as strong as a lipstick but isn't as sheer as a gloss and we have the perfect product for that! Here's how to achieve her look:
Step 1: Line the eyes using our Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in 'Black' and wing out the ends.
Step 2: Curl lashes and apply our Lash Collections in 'Dramatic' corner lashes just to the edges of the eyes for a little extra flare.
Step 3: Grab our new EX-Tra Glosses and mix the shades 'Brian' and 'Joe' for the perfect pink-orange lip!

Oscars Beauty Roundup!Oscars Beauty Roundup!

The bad news? Awards season has come and gone. The GREAT news? A full round-up of Oscars beauty, just for you! When it came to the biggest event of the awards season last night, we were shocked to discover that simplicity was in! The fresh-faced look is here to stay in a BIG way. Here's five of our favorite looks from last night's big show:

With smoky-brown eyes, and a subtle red lip, Emma Watson was one of the most-done up of the night. A full face of makeup, but she still looked naturally-beautiful. We loved it!

Charlize took the bold look of mismatched eyeliner, and refined it to a fresh glam for the red carpet. With a safe gunmetal grey on the top lashline, and eye-widening white on the bottom rim, it's a classic way to stay on-trend.
Nominee Sandra Bullock went classic as well, pairing yet another brown smoky eye (The best way to be naturally-dramatic!) with a lovely nude lip. Fresh, elegant, and all-around glam!

The perfect cat-eye! Like Charlize, Olivia Wilde went for grey eyeliner, a great twist on the classic black. The always-classic cat-eye paired with minimal makeup elsewhere gives this look a very modern vintage appeal. Love it!

Last, but certainly not least, the big winner of the night was our favorite Lupita Nyong'o. Soft, dewy skin, champagne eyes, and a glossy lip: This look is fresh, elegant, and flawless! Congrats to Lupita on her big win, we think we'll be seeing a LOT more of this new beauty icon!
