Spring is in the air and that was very apparent tonight on the Academy Award's red carpet! This awards show never disappoints with all the glamour and the fashion. There seemed to be a light, freshness in all the beauties that graced the red carpet as neutrals and pastels were the color du jour. Subtle plums created sweet, but statement making smokey eyes; while nude lips provided a lovely complement to their overall look for Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Garner.
Their ashen grey smokey eyes, though light in color never lacked any drama for both Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. Both ladies kept the skin youthful and fresh with hints of pink on their cheeks and lips.
Continuing with the neutral trend, but adding her own flair to it, was the lovely Jessica Chastain. She was my favorite of the evening oozing old Hollywood glamour with her make up, hair and dress. The eyes were kept very simple with a shimmery nude eyeshadow on the eyelid, a warm, but very faint contour in the crease and a clean but dramatic black eyeliner on the upper eyelid only. Her skin was flawless and her cheeks had a soft pink glow. The finishing touch to complete her look was a perfectly, classic red lip.
