Hollywood’s big night out isn’t just about the movies anymore—and why would it be, when it’s the one night of the year when all the stars put their best foot forward? (Cutest couple? We’re lookin’ at you, Selena and Bieber!) From lips to nails, here are our quick notes on how you can get glam Oscar beauty at home—in a jiffy.
Fuchsia lips as seen on: Hailee Steinfeld
A punchy lip can wake up your whole face. When paired with a pale dress like Hailee’s, it instantly pops and brightens your look. Choose a shimmery hue instead of a matte and layer with a clear gloss for even more shine.

Shiny bouncy ponytail as seen on: Reese Witherspoon
Channel Barbie by pulling locks back into a super-high pony at the crown of your head. First, apply volumizing mousse to damp tresses and blow-dry. Then, set hair in big curlers to get full, bouncy spirals. Apply a nourishing shine serum and gather hair into a pony tail, securing with an elastic or fun hairband. Brush out pony to loosen up curls, and finish with a strong hairspray.

Purple-y nude nails as seen on: Mila Kunis
We were in love with Mila’s lilac lace number—and loved even more how she paired it with a sweet not-too-nude mani. To get your own perfect shade inspired by Mila’s style, try the palest pink shade with just a twinge of purple.
