And the Oscar goes to...

In celebration of the Upcoming Oscar's, I decided to piece together beauty lessons we learned from the nominees of Best Supporting Actress.

Annete Bening- The Kids Are Alright

Beauty Lesson One: Who says that glasses are reserved only for nerds? NewsFlash, Glasses are totally in this season. Throwing on a pair of black rimmed glasses, instantly polish up your look and make you seem more professional. This is great especially on days lazy Sundays.

Nicole Kidman- Rabbit Hole

Beauty Lesson 2: An easy way to fancify your hair, is to throw it up in a Half up- Half down Curly do. This romantic look is great for date nights, formal events and even just days out.
To get this look:
1. Section of your hair from the tips of your ear and secure with an elastic. Leave.
2. Curl the bottom strands with a 1" Curling Iron. I swear by Hot Tools.
3. Loosen up your do until you get your desired look!

Jennifer Lawrence- Winter's Bone

Beauty Lesson 3: A winged smokey eye is totally hot this season. Instead of blending into a rounded shape, try going for a more winged out shape. This fashion forward look definitely puts all the eyes on you. Just make sure to balance it out with a nude lip other wise you could be mistaken for a clown!

Natalie Portman - Black Swan

Beauty Lesson 4: Go all out for Bright hot pink lipstick! Don't shy away from the colour, although it may seem a little too much for some, it is actually very flattering on many skin tones. Perfect for night outs,  hot bright pink is the way to go!

Michelle Williams- Blue Valentine

Beauty Lesson 5: Snip, snip snip! Don't be afraid to cut your hair. Cropped pixie cuts are adorable! Super flattering and versatile. Michelle's blond pixie looks elegant and edgy at the same time. So What are you waiting for?

So who are you rooting for this Oscars? I'm going with Natalie Portman for Black Swan. Btw, anyone seen it? What are your thoughts on it? Leave it in the comment section beloe!
