If you've been searching for an easy way to improve your beauty game, the standout looks from the Oscars may just be your solution. To prove it, The Zoe Report editors went ahead and rounded up their favorite hair and makeup of the evening. From Charlize Theron's stunning new hair color to Laura Harrier's blue smoky eye, the Oscars offered a fresh set of beauty ideas you'll want to try out immediately.
"Amy Adams has been wearing sleek, super-polished updos all awards season long and these natural-looking waves are such a refreshing change. Her makeup was perfectly subtle, too, allowing that sparkly metallic gown and the near-blinding bling around her neck to speak all for itself." — Olivia Young, Celebrity Writer
"I never considered wearing blue eyeshadow until I saw Laura Harrier's Oscars look. There's nothing I don't love about her beauty look, but that powder-blue wash on her lids is incredibly stunning." — Ruby Buddemeyer, Associate Celebrity Editor
"I'm always a fan of Charlize — she looks so sleek and sophisticated for every red carpet. Plus, I'm so excited about her hair color change — I love her blonde, but wow, she pulls off brunette beautifully." — Anna Buckman, Shopping News Editor
"Everything about Lucy Boynton’s Oscars look was pure, retro-inspired perfection, from her muted-pink smoky eye to her glossy lips and soft, wavy hair. It’s one beauty moment I’ll definitely be referencing in the months to come (and attempting to recreate, too)." — Eva Thomas, Celebrity Writer
"I’m all about statement-making fashion, and people are going to talk about Linda Cardellini’s ruffled, hot pink Schiaparelli gown for a minute — but the unsung hero was her complementary makeup. Going with a fresh-faced glam look let the dress shine." — Madge Maril, Shopping News Writer
"Bows have been the accessory du jour this year, and I love that Ashley Graham took it and ran with it. So stunning." — Angela Melero, Senior West Coast Editor
"I can't get over Brie Larson's hair — it's sleek yet entirely effortless, and perfectly complements her metallic Celine dress." — Aidan Macaluso, Social Media Editor
