Jennifer Lawrence

Wow. J-Law looks phenomenal. The winged shadow is beyond, and we can't get enough of the burnt orange lip—not to mention those curls.

Margot Robbie

The girl of the minute looks like a vision in Chanel, with angelic makeup to match. Also, we're seriously into her new (slightly shorter) hair. Whether she takes home the Oscar or not, this beauty look is the standout according to us. 

Samara Weaving

Australian golden girl Samara looks like a dream in shades of coral and gold. A little bit of depth around the eyes balance out the waves and tulle just so.

Allison Janney

Award nominee Allison looks incredible. Perfect highlights and a powdery pink blush have her looking miles away from her character in I,Tonya. We're crossing our fingers for her!

Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita is gilded perfection at this years Academy Awards. Everything from the luminous skin to the gold thread woven through her hair is amazing.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman isn't one to normally dabble in colour, but this orange lip looks so fresh (especially with her blue dress).

Zendaya

With a face like that, Zendaya could (and does) wear any hairstyle. The actress looks next-level amazing in this chocolate eye and bun duo. Try Ouai's Matte Pomade ($36) for a sleek vibe.

Saoirse Ronan

Props to Saoirse's makeup artist for nailing no makeup-makeup perfectly. The Lady Bird star looks radiant in shades of blush.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone took a step pack this year, opting for pants over a gown. Her sleek blow dry and pink eye shadow compliment the jewel-toned jacket perfectly.

Helen Mirrin

Another icon, Helen Mirrin keeps it simple is pared-back makeup, a soft lip colour, and out-of-this-world jewels.

Emily Blunt

Nude skin and lashes seems to be a theme this year, is it not? Emily Blunt looks so special with the softest hint of pinky-coral on her lips.

Allison Williams

Allison's nude makeup perfectly complements her chocolate waves. Also, we need that mascara in our lives.

Haley Bennett

We can't stop staring at the flowers in Haley Bennett's hair, or her perfect hair cut, for that matter. She's also the perfect example for the transformative powers of a little shimmer in the corner of the eyes.

Meryl Streep

Nominee Meryl Streep has kept it pared-back with nude skin, simple hair, and glasses.

Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot is partial to a vintage beauty look, and tbh we're not really surprised. We're also really into the matte skin—maybe dewy complexions are finally done?

Greta Gerwig

If this doesn't convince you to chop your hair off, nothing will. We love Greta's take on colour with the berry lip and yellow dress combo.

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner looks fresh and youthful in shades of violet. Light, airy hair keeps it modern.

Salma Hayek

Wine-stained lips and braids are a perfect choice for Salma's honey complexion.

Zoey Deutch

Burgundy is tipped to be one of the biggest makeup colour trends of 2018, and Zoey has us sold. Use a palette like the ABH Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette ($75) for a soft wash across the entire lid.

Ashley Judd

Proof that old-school glamour never gets old. Creamy skin, loose curls, and mauve lips suit Ashley Judd to a tee.
