Standout beauty looks from the Oscars 2022

When it comes to red carpet appearances, a memorable look consists not only of a drop-dead gorgeous gown, but immaculate hair and makeup that elevates an outfit from great to spectacular.

At the Oscar’s 2022, some of the best looks of the evening were accompanied by standout hair and makeup that need a moment of their own to be appreciated in all their glory.

Without further a do...the beauty looks we’re obssessed with from the Oscars 2022:


A glowing goddess. Queen B opted for minimal bronzed makeup to allow her canary yellow gown and chandelier earrings do the talking.


Tati Gabrielle

This might just be one of our favourite beauty moments of the night. It's the combination of the platinum blonde goddess braids that were swooped to the side and tucked in, that complimented her satin skin and fluffy brows, which meant that all she needed to master this look was add a gold foil leaf to the inner corner of her eyes and a job very well done.

Thuso Mbedu

A star! Thuso is definitely teaching us a lesson from hair to makeup and we're tuned in. The articulated feathered brow, with the duo-winged black and silver liner, flawless buffed skin and neutral toned lips allows for the natural textured afro to bring it all home and make this look iconic.

Zoey Kravitz

An Aubrey Hepburn inspired beauty look that has us feeling all types of legendary.


Megan Thee Stallion

We're talking perfectly curated swirls and swoops, the sleekest winged liner and a muted eye with glass lips to seal the deal.

Lupita Nyong’o

It's the hair for us. Paired with a creamy red lip, that just makes the outfit come together.

We love the regal approach that was taken on her hair, with hints of silver accents on her eye area keeping the apples of her cheeks flushed with a high shine glossy lip.


Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada’s buzz cut made a statement at the Oscars - and she complimented it perfectly with smoky emerald eye, chocolate lippie and statement earings.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Trust Tracee to pull off the fire engine red lippie paired with a natural face and a sleek hairdo.

If you've ever been in doubt if less is really more, then H.E.R did the job convincing us that it's all true. The feline sapphire liner marries the coral lip and cheek so well.
