Understated makeup was all the rage at last night's OscarsIf style hounds and makeup fanatics were all scouring the red carpet on Sunday for the latest trends in bold cosmetics, they may have come up empty-handed. As it so happens, demure, understated makeup was more de riguer at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

"By and large, the makeup was soft, safe and devoid of a 'statement' anything," according to FashionEtc.com. "Subtly defined eyes, rosy cheeks, and sheer, natural-looking lip color were the order of the night for Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, and especially, Michelle Williams."

The last-mentioned starlet showed up with a stunning look that her makeup artist characterized as "ethereal and sparkling," the news source reports.

Ladies can use a touch of Academy Award-worthy inspiration when it comes to their own day-to-day makeup routines. Opt for tinted moisturizer, translucent power and soft, cream-based blush. Eyes can still pop with a played-down approach – use a couple coats of mascara paired with soft pigments on the lids.
