The Best Oscars 2014 Beauty Looks

The glamour! The fashion! The awards! There’s a lot that went down at last night’s Oscars, but most importantly is the hair and makeup looks we saw on some of our favorite celebrities. From neutral makeup tones to pushed-back hairstyles, here are the top 6 beauty looks we loved seeing on the red carpet last night:

1. Kate Hudson rocked a smudged smoky eye and pale pink lip color whilst her hair was swept to the side in glossy waves.

2. Jennifer Lawrence wore her short hair pulled-back away from her face, but with plenty of volume at the crown. Her neutral eyes rimmed with black and soft peachy lips completed the perfect look.

3. Kerry Washington’s deep cherry lipstick and gorgeous half-up-half-down hairstyle added such elegance to her overall style of the night.

4. Amy Adams sported a sleek vintage-inspired up-do, complementary to her bronze eye make-up and glossy rose lips.

5. Sandra Bullock also picked up on the side-swept curls trend, pairing it with a heavier metallic smoky-eye and a nude lip color for a classic beauty look.

6. Lupita Nyong’o looked as gorgeous as ever! Her princess-like look included a shimmery berry-hued lip and a simple, yet stunning, headband.

Welcome Seth to the StyleSeat Team!

We’re very excited to welcome a new member to our StyleSeat team: Seth Warrick. Seth is from Fort Calhoun, Nebraska- a small town of 900 just 20 miles outside of Omaha. He studied Communication Design at Parsons in NYC and has previously worked as a web designer and brand manager at various successful companies. Seth is joining us as Senior Designer and we’re so happy to have him onboard. He will be applying his amazing aesthetic and ninja design skills to the StyleSeat experience across web and mobile.

In addition to his love for product design (especially at the intersection of human interaction and brand), he has spent substantial time working as a photographer and has periodically dabbled in film. The only thing that rivals his fascination with and around the design world is his love of music, where you can find him producing and deejaying alongside friends. Seth also loves traveling and does so whenever possible, wherever possible. So again, please join us in welcoming him to StyleSeat!
