And the winner for best hair and makeup goes to…….

Watching the oscars is a night I look forward to all winter long.  It keeps me going through all the bone chilling days and night.  This year was extra special because I was accompanied by my bestie, Racheal.  We drank wine and dished all night long about fashion and beauty- and the best part, my amazing husband served us “best-picture” themed tapas (see my Instagram for a peek at the menu!) while we watched the show.

Here are my top 5 picks for the best hair and makeup on last nights red carpet:

1.) Kate Hudson
Kate was drop dead gorgeous with her smokey eye.  I loved the edgy look with her dress.  She nailed it with a pale lip and luminous skin.  Her side swept, wavy hair was just imperfect enough.  I’m really loving the idea of unstructured, more effortless hair styles these days.

2.) Sandra Bullock
Another smokey eye perfectly done!  A definite trend on the red carpet last night- more and more celebrities opted for the nude lip.  Sandra’s look was perfection.  And, I want her hair color!  Her glossy chocolate locks with warm caramel highlights shined on the red carpet.

3.) Charlize Theron
She always gets it right.  How stunning is Charlize?!!! Wow!  This woman looks good no matter if she’s wearing retro waves (2013), a pixie (last year) or the chic short do.  This was classic makeup perfection with black liquid liner flicked out on the corners and sheer shimmery lids.  Head to toe beauty!

4.) Cate Blanchett
Her look reminded me of peaches and cream.  Her flawless skin glows! The whole look was “classic Cate” and although I was expecting her to change it up a bit for the Oscars, she knows what works for her and went with it!  Congrats on the win!

5.) Naomi Watts
She is always willing to take a risk.  Last night her winter white, Calvin Klein dress was a bridal worthy choice.  Statement necklaces were floating about the red carpet last night. She too, wore her hair down and swept to the side.  I predict we’ll see a lot of brides walk down the isle with this look.  Her poppy lip stood out in a sea of nude lips.

Who were your favorites?!
