Whether bold or subtle, it seems like there was a look everyone could relate to at Hollywood's classiest red carpet event.

The greatest accessory to those sparkly gowns and towering heels at the Oscars? It's in the face, of course, and Hollywood's makeup artists and hairstylists did not disappoint.

Hair trends were a mix from high buns to loose wavy hair, with some bangs thrown in for easy sophistication. 'The Help's' Viola Davis looked stunning au naturel while Jessica Chastain rocked half-up and half-down wavy curls.

As for the cosmetics, the women showcased the full range of options. Dramatics were found in the classic Hollywood red lip, worn beautifully by Angelina Jolie, Penelope Ann Miller and Milla Jovovich, while a calmer, subtler side was found on actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Maya Rudolph, who went for nude looks.

Here are some of our favourite looks and tips to recreate them in your bathroom:

We Recommend:
