Hollywood wrapped up the 2013 award season last night with the biggest of them all: the Academy Awards!
I have to admit I wasn't overly excited about many of the dresses on the Oscars red carpet this year, but I did find it refreshing to see so many stars taking a different approach to hair and makeup.
The most obvious trend seen on many stars was long, glamorous hair worn down instead of in an up-do, which is a fun change. Below I've broken down the most common hair and makeup trends I spotted on the red carpet this year.
From Jessica Chastain to Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Helen Hunt, the stars let their hair down this year at the Academy Awards!
After the Golden Globes I did a tutorial (seen here) on how to achieve this no-fuss approach to special occasion hair. I love the relaxed, glamorous waves paired with the gorgeous gowns -- a sleek and sophisticated ode to Old Hollywood.
A deep side part was seen on many stars.
Clean Eye Makeup:
In lieu of overly dramatic, smokey eye makeup, the stars kept it simple with barely-there shadow and clean liner and lashes.
If you're going to wear a bold lip color, the Academy Awards is the time to do it. Jessica Chastain is one actor who opted for a bright, beautiful lip, along with the aforementioned sleek waves:
From berry to bright red, the stars continued this award season's trend of letting their lips do the talking.
