It’s finally here. After the gorgeous beauty looks at the Golden Globes and the wild looks at the Grammys, it’s the Oscars. While a lot of people were curious to see who would (actually) win the award for Best Picture, we were eagerly anticipating what celebrities were going to show up in for the 2019 Oscars. After all, it’s the grand finale of awards shows. Celebrities save their very best looks for last and go big with their hair and makeup.
Many stars didn’t disappoint. The glam meters were turned up high. We saw “big” beauty in a literal sense in some instances with sweeping hairstyles and statement hair accessories. Plus, there were a few stars who opted for dramatic hair color switch-ups. We even spotted some fashion month beauty trends like barrettes, headbands and dewy skin.
In some cases, it seemed like the need to slay at the Oscars was too much and celebrities crippled under the pressure. The results were some questionable hair and makeup looks featuring overzealous uses of eyeliner and teasing combs.
