When it comes to red carpet beauty, the Oscars is always our favourite. The glitz, glamour, the gowns. What’s not to like?
And after a few years of live events being put on pause, the 2022 Oscars is shaping up to be one hell of a show-stopper. With a guest list including Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Chastain and Tracee Ellis Ross, we’re strapping in for some stellar hair and makeup inspiration.
