The 2019 Oscars Lipsticks You’ll Want To Buy Immediately
The mother of all awards shows is finally here to provide you with enough inspo to last until next year. Just when you thought you had seen all the best looks of the season, Hollywood's fashion crowd pulls out all the stops for the final red carpet. These 2019 Oscars lipsticks are the easiest way to recreate your favorite style moments.
Nothing brings a trend to life like a red carpet — especially the Oscars red carpet, where the biggest names in fashion and beauty come out to play. Over the years, this iconic ceremony has been responsible for some pretty momentous looks (Celine Dion's backwards suit and Björk's swan dress, to name a few).
Believe it or not, lip color has been a key factor in its evolution, too. The first sighting of a colorful pout on the Oscars red carpet was on Grace Kelly circa 1955, although nobody could tell she was wearing berry-pink gloss because it was televised in black and white. And who could forget Madonna's famous Marilyn Monroe moment in 1991, when she smiled through lips brighter than the red carpet itself?
So there you have it: These lipsticks are making history (or at least just setting the aesthetic for this year). See the evening's best, ahead.
Laura Harrier ended awards season with a bang, having — hands down — one of the best beauty moments in her career so far. Her makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, set the look with a pinkish-red lip with optimal shine.
"Melissa's awesome pantsuit really was my inspiration," makeup artist Georgie Eisdell said in a press release. She wanted to keep the actor's lips "soft but with a hint of color," using a combination of matte lipstick and gloss.
Latrice Johnson acheived Regina King's pink lip with a trio of products from Pat McGrath Labs, she confirmed on Instagram.
"When it came to choosing the lip color, Jo (Baker) picked Lip Chic in Wisteria, a soft wearable plum shade," a press release from her team said, "for its purple undertones that would compliment both Lucy’s eyes and dress."
Emilia Clarke's hot-pink pout popped against her sparkly lavender dress. The woman behind her beauty look, Jillian Dempsey, used a liquid color with a matte finish.
Tina Fey's makeup artist, Gita Bass, went with a neutral lip to balance out the actor's bold blue eye makeup.
There's no better match for a bright-yellow dress than a bold red lip. Pat McGrath Labs was responsible for Constance Wu's memorable pout.
Brie Larson's sparkly gown spoke for itself, so makeup artist Nina Park opted for a subtle nude lip.
