The Oscars 2022 red carpet was literally red — from the gowns to the suits — but the beauty looks had some versatility. Some celebrities had fun experimenting with new hairstyles, some gave us face, and some made me jealous of their perfect eyebrows (hi, Zoë Kravitz). Here are the best of the bestest beauty looks on the red carpet this year.
Chloe and Hailey win for always knowing how to switch their locs up. Tonight they opted for buns — Chloe with a dramatic textured bun finished off with the most laid baby hairs and Halle, the birthday girl with a textured curly bun with hints of golden brown wefted into it.
Most Cool Slick Back
If you’re going to krash an awards show, at least look good while doing it. Kourtney Kardashian understood the assignment with her short slicked back ‘do. It was an elegant touch to her strapless black vintage Mugler gown.
It’s sleek, sharp, and colored to perfection. Bobs are usually popular on a red carpet, but Serena’s hands down takes the crown for this one.
Best Red Lip
There were so many to choose from, but Tracee’s bold red lipstick was the standout feature on her subtle makeup look. And with her red dress? Perfection.
Eyebrows I’m Jealous Of
Have you ever seen eyebrows so perfect? Zoë’s pink eyeshadow and swooped bang were gorgeous, but that alluring arch in her dreamy and thick eyebrows stole the show. Thin eyebrows may be “in,” but these could never go out of style.
Eyeshadow That TikTok Will Be Trying by Tonight
When it comes to eyeshadow, Megan Thee Stallion is always going to have a cut crease look. And tonight’s nudish pink shadow look will have all the TikTokers recreating it by morning.
The Smokiest Eye
Zendaya can do no wrong. This silver smokey eye was juuust smokey enough to highlight her face, yet subtle enough to not take away from her jaw-dropping look. Her gloss was the perfect finish, too.
Let’s be honest, Lupita always kills it on the red carpet. Tonight’s structured updo made of locs was simply art.
A Side Swoop Worthy of Swooning
Sofia loves a side swoop for her red-carpet moments and I can see why. It’s sleek, it’s fitting, it’s everything. I don’t know how much hairspray it took to have her swoop lying so flat while being so shiny, but sign me up for it!
Best Middle Part
Apparently side parts are old and center parts are in? Obviously, Becky G knows how to do a perfect part down the middle of her head. She’s cool.
The Ultimate Winged Eyeliner
H.E.R. may have had on her infamous shades, but there was no hiding that winged eyeliner that was drawn to perfection. The cobalt blue was also an unexpected touch with her green jewels — killer glam against those blue tinted glasses.
Perfect for Spring Hair
Spring is the season for change and Tiffany Haddish showed that she’s ready for it. Her blonde hair fits her skin tone so well and the fingerwaves top it off. I’m starting a petition for her to wear her hair like this for every red carpet — want to sign?
