While digital award ceremonies haven’t been all that bad in 2021, there is nothing like witnessing a fresh new beauty look on the red carpet rather than via Zoom. At the Oscars 2021, that’s exactly what we did, surveying the scene as the stars turned out in full glamour – sans protective face mask – with all manner of hair and make-up looks. It was truly time to show up and show out.
Stand out looks include Zendaya’s mermaid-esque ultra long hair and natural, glowy skin, while Margot Robbie and Halle Berry’s fresh new bangs also caused a stir. Celeste’s centre parted hair perfectly complemented her deep red lipstick and we are always here for a blunt cut bob, as per Regina King.
Another big beauty trend of the night was lipstick. It came in all manner of hues, from light pink to the deepest berry reds and plum shades, and it was notable after a year in which many of us ditched wearing colour on our lips thanks to masks. Injecting a sense of Old Hollywood glamour to the red carpet, everyone from Amanda Seyfried to H.E.R. wore a slick of the good stuff. And we were very much here for it.
Below, find the best Oscars beauty looks for 2021.
