Yesterday I was traveling so I’m a day behind on my Oscar beauty updates, so forgive me if you’ve already seen these looks.
Anna Kendrick wore a romantic blush-colored Eli Saab gown on the Oscar red
carpet, complimented by an effortlessly elegant, modern updo designed by stylist Craig Gangi.
Gangi, inspired by the graceful off-the-shoulder look, created an updo highlighting softly waved texture accenting healthy hair with natural-looking shine. He first applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to add moisture and give hair a soft hold that was smooth as well as frizz-free and static-free.
After blow-drying hair straight, Gangi used a medium sized curling iron to create loose, natural waves. He then pulled strands back, leaving just enough hair at the nape of the neck to create a small ponytail, and shaped a loose, undone textured bun.
To add a touch of drama, he went back to weave three small braids with the remaining hair, then again braided the three with each other. Finally he circled the braid around the bun. After pinning the style, he sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to hold the look in place without stiffness, and misted the final updo with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray for additional boost of red carpet shine.
Celebrity makeup artist Sara Glick created a “very soft, neutral look with bronze undertones” for Anna Kendrick using her favorite Dior eyeshadows and mascara: Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Sunset Cafe and Incognito and DiorShow Unlimited Mascara.
