Best Beauty from the 2012 Academy Awards


Gowns, gems, and glamour! Celebrities gussied up from head to toe for Hollywood's biggest night. From Jessica Chastain's soft waves to Octavia Spencer's smoky eye, we crown the best in hair and makeup looks from the 2012 Academy Awards. 


Pretty in pink! Complementing her rosy colored gown, Emma dusted her lids with a muted version of the hue. She kept the rest of her makeup clean witha subtle flush of tint on her lips.

Golden girl! Jessica flaunted a flawless glow on the red carpet. Her shimmering peach eye shadow mirrored her strawberry locks, which were pinned back in a simple half-up, half-down 'do.

Continuing her minimal makeup streak, Rooney added a splash of color to her Snow White-style with a scarlet statement lip. We adore her long, feathery lashes!

Va-va-voom! Taking the award for best smoky eye of the night, Octavia rocked a dazzling sunset orange shade paired with smoldering black in the outer corners. To keep the focus on her peepers, she modeled a matte nude lip.
