“I wanted to make her look like a prize, because she is a prize and the work she’s receiving accolades for is so impressive!” Witherspoon’s makeup artist Molly Stern tells us. Using the star’s Calvin Klein gown as a starting point, Stern went for a metallic color palette, going for gold tones as opposed to silver. She applied a base of Laura Mericer’s Baked Eye Color in Black Karat ($24;sephora.com), then smudged the Caviar Stick in Gilded Gold ($28; shop.nordstrom.com) on top. “I concentrated the black along the lash line, and it made the brightness of the gold more sexy,” she adds. A sweep of Laura Mercier’s Crème Cheek Color in Blaze ($24;nordstrom.com) gave off a believable flush, and as a finishing touch, Stern applied the Crème Smooth Lip Color in Merlot ($27;nordstrom.com) under a layer of gold gloss.
The double nominee (for Still Alice, and Map to the Stars, respectively) went for an allover metallic look, pairing her dazzling Givenchy gown with a smoky, silver tinged eye. For a sultry base, makeup artist Elaine Offers applied L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon in Impressive Brown ($8;lorealparisusa.com) across the lid, sweeping L’Oreal Paris Infallible Smokissime in Black ($10; lorealparisusa.com) along the lashline. Touches of L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Eye Shadow in Silver Sky ($8; lorealparisusa.com) added a metallic finish for a cohesive look.
As a complement to her glamorous retro waves, Rodriguez’s makeup artist Jenna Anton went for a dramatic eye with a peach-toned lip. Anton used a warm matte yellow from her lid to brow bone as a base, then traced the star’s lash line with L’Oreal’s Super Slim Infallible Eyeliner ($9; ulta.com). She started with a thin line, then built up the thickness as she reached the outer corner, extending it into a wing. L’Oreal’s Eyeshadow Crayons in Enduring Rose and Everlasting Gold ($8 each;lorealparisusa.com) were applied to Rodriguez’s inner corners to make her eyes pop. After defining her brows, Anton set a flawless canvas with primer and foundation, adding a touch of blush to give off a rosy glow. The L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor in Permanent Blush ($13; lorealparisusa.com) finished the look.
Bombshell alert! Jennifer Lopez sported some major volume with the help of her mane man, Lorenzo Martin. He used the star’s Zuhair Murad number and ‘60s actress Sharon Tate as inspiration. Once prepping damp hair with L’Oréal Paris’s Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($4;elizabetharden.com), he began to blow dry with a round brush for a boost of body. After setting her hair in 1-inch rollers for an about an hour, he flipped her head over and brushed her strands out. His next step? Teasing the crown. He spritzed the brand’s trusty Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold ($13;target.com) to lock the style in place. Lastly, he split a portion of her hair down the middle and secured behind the ears.
