There’s nothing quite like a riveting award show to garner makeup inspiration, and that’s just what the 2013 Oscars was! Numerous celebrities showed up to event to showcase their beauty, and there’s plenty to be said about the cosmetics that were worn.

One trend that appeared to be prominent throughout the evening was rich pouts. As SheKnows reports, everyone from Jessica Chastain to Anne Hathaway wore bold lipstick. Whether you like the idea of magenta lips or you were thinking along the lines of fire engine red, this might be a style worth trying. Check out brands like Lipstick Queen for more daring color choices.

Another trend worth noting from the Oscars was the lean toward more natural makeup. Women seemed to be less concerned about caking on the blush and eyeshadow. Instead, most chose to apply a bit of jet-black mascara onto their lashes and allowed their peepers to do all of the talking.

Whether you don’t wear much makeup or you simply love the idea of a natural look, this may be just the appearance for you. Even if you aren’t into celebrity gossip, there are always makeup tricks to be learned from Hollywood’s finest.
