BLOCKBUSTER BEAUTY TIPS
Lights, camera, BEAUTY! The Oscars are just a few days away, and you’ll be red-carpet ready with these Hollywood glam makeup looks. From retro radiance to modern mattes, these looks will make you the brightest star in tinsel town.
A classic red lip is one of the most timeless makeup trends there is, and the ultimate symbol of old Hollywood glam makeup. It never goes out of style and can be worn in various shades – from bombshell red to marvelous merlot – or even jazzed up with some glitter for a modern take on a classic!
For lips like Marilyn Monroe’s, go with a simple and elegant crimson shade. Our Liquid Lipstick Long Wearing Matte Lipstick in Glory is a timeless red that glides on and stays on all day for ultimate star power. Just one swipe and it’s showtime! For a more subdued look, pick up the shades Charlotte or Chrissy for a toned-down take on this glam makeup staple. All shades set to a chic matte finish that’s perfect for onscreen kisses!
Or maybe you’re more of a sparkles girl? No prob! Use our Deep Red Glitter for a more fun take on the classic red lipstick look. After applying your chosen shade of red, tap on glitter with your finger while lipstick is still wet – or swipe on our Smooth Canvas Long-Wear Shadow Primer using your finger or our Brush V8 – Vegan Lip Brush to apply glitter to your lips. A modern red lip that will have all eyes on you. This classic has only gotten better with age, and it’s the perfect addition to your red-carpet look!

A sparkly take on the classic red lip look
Audrey Hepburn’s brows were bold, brilliant, and beautiful… everything BH stands for! The iconic actress sported thick, strong brows throughout most of her career that highlighted her beautiful eyes, and many still replicate her look decades later!
Hepburn’s brows were pretty unconventional. Instead of the arch many eyebrow enthusiasts swore by, she chose straight brows that slightly lift towards the ends. However, she’s a beauty icon in every sense. Many of today’s stars, including Meghan Markle, model their brows after hers!
While this look is fairly simple, it requires proper maintenance. The biggest beauty essential for bold, Audrey brows is our Studio Pro Tweezers, because nobody likes stray hairs! Also grab our Studio Pro Ultimate Brow Palette and Bold Brow Vegan Brush Set to get lush, full brows that are perfectly Hollywood.
We’ve all looked at our favorite celebrity and wondered just HOW their complexion is so flawless. And we’re here to tell you! Hollywood’s Golden Age was an ultra-glamorous time, but it was before highlighter and shimmers took over the glam makeup world. Read on for a fresh, natural makeup look worn by movie stars of the Golden Age.
You’ll be in the clear with our trio for perfect skin! Our Naturally Flawless Liquid Foundation, Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer, and Matte Finish Pressed Powder come together for a glam makeup look that’s fresh, flawless, and guaranteed to give you movie-star flair.
Once you’ve set the stage, skip the sparkles and opt for a soft, rosy blush. Our Blushed Neutrals 26 Color Eyeshadow and Blush Palette gives you a beautiful burst of color that perfectly complements red lips and other Hollywood makeup faves. It also comes with ultra-pigmented eyeshadows for chic, low-key looks that make your eyes pop.
If there’s one word to describe Hollywood, it’s elegant. The hair, the gowns, and especially the glam makeup that we’ve admired for decades. One of the most elegant glam makeup trends for A-list looks is mile-long lashes. They’re the perfect finish to any look, and frame your eyes in gorgeous ways.
If you’re looking for something dramatic, there’s always falsies! Our Studio Pro Lashes instantly add extra oomph to your eyes and amp up any look. You’ll be ready for the red carpet in no time!
Another timeless trend that made its mark on old Hollywood is the cat eye. Starlets like Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor wore the famous flick back in the 1950s, and winged eyeliner has since become a phenomenon. The makeup look is perfect for both daytime drama or evening glam. Scoop up our Liquid Eyeliner in Black – now available at Ulta.com – and create a fierce cat eye that would make Cleopatra proud!
