Now that we've analyzed all the beauty looks on this year's Oscars red carpet, it's time for the after-parties! After the show, most of the A+ list could be found at the super-exclusive Vanity Fair Oscars party, while all the other celebs hit up Elton John's annual AIDS Foundation viewing event.
Here are all the hair and makeup highlights:
Don't ask me to explain why I like this—I just do! Where most would fail, I think Hailee pulls off this brown-toned makeup, low textured ponytail and Brooke Shields-esque brows. I know she's wearing false lashes, but these feel so thick and soft, they sort of work.
Why didn't Jessica do this for the Oscars?! I like her wavy hair here, and the cherry-red lips, soooo much better. Damn, she has good skin, huh? It's ridiculous.
And this is why Karlie is a supermodel. The hair, the pose, the cheekbones, OMG. I'm loving her glowy skin, the peachy makeup and the tightlined eyes.
Nice! I just want to pet Olivia's hair, it looks so touchable. The matte pale pink lipstick gives an unexpected twist to a retro look. Still some brow-filling issues, though...
I'm so into this fun sheer pink lipstick, and the fresh, freckled skin. But I woulda thought Rashida was too cool for false lashes, you know? Plus the brows might look nicer just left alone.
I feel like I've seen this look (and this pose) from Miranda a thousand times before. Still gorge, though. I love seeing her natural lashes with luminous skin and the pop of orangey-red gloss.
Paula's been hit and miss in the past, but this is a good look for her. Well, except for the eye makeup part—I'd have done less spidery lashes and a more subtle inner corner highlight. But all in all, very nice.
Michelle has such amazing eyes, I totally get why she plays them up like this—and their contrast against her pale, fresh skin is fab. I think her hair colour should be a softer brown, to harmonize with her light brows.
Hair is fantastic, but the lipstick? Not so much. (It's coming across like a dated sort of brown, rather than the modern way that Hailee styled it.) I can't tell exactly what's happening with her false lashes, but there might be a situation.
I love when Amy does these soft, vintagey, undone updos—they are my favourite on her. Her eyes are really popping this time, thanks to the blue dress and the bronzey shadow that picks up on the tones in her hair.
Hmm... Zoë updated her Oscars look by adding a fishtail braid and red lipstick, and filling in the white waterlines to black. I don't think the latter worked too well—they are now a weird grey, and seem a bit heavy. Also, why are her cheeks so light compared to the rest of her face?
More supermodel gorgeousness. As usual, I'm all over Kate's blonde hair-dark brow contrast. And this orange lipstick is divine.
Uh-oh, we have a concealer creasing issue. Without that, and the heavy eye makeup, this could've been a cute look—I like it even better than Rita's pale Oscars lips. Her short hair is totally growing on me as well; it looks so good off the face like this.
Bad foundation—it happens to celebs, too! Kat's is too yellow for her skin tone, creating an unflattering mask effect. I am convinced she gets injections in her upper lip, and it's getting out of control.
This is a bit "baby Kardashian"! Selena does wear eye makeup well, and I love the flecks of gold here. Her round face can handle the contouring without looking too overdone.
Diane (who I believe always does her own red carpet makeup) did a good job here. Goldy-taupe eyes, defined natural lashes, zero liner and creamy red lips. Sophisticated and elegant as usual.
Not bad. Ashley's hair looks incredibly shiny, and she really suits a smoky eye and these goldy-brown tones of makeup. But the lashes are too much, and her blush doesn't seem blended at the temples.
You'd think with such incredible eyes and brows (and lips!), Jessica would know not to pile on the lashes. They're totally unnecessary. Everything else is great, although I'm not sure about brushing up the brows quite this much.
Is Miley okay?! I feel like she's really lost her glow lately. It's also time to attend to these roots.
Faith looks adorable in her new (-ish) short haircut and this rosy makeup. Her lips are, like, perfect. I get tired of saying it, but the lashes aren't needed here either.
Here's Margot posing hard, with basically the same look as at the Oscars. Except maybe a different lipstick? It seems more orange here.
This is cool—hair piled high on top and up off the neck, with eyeshadow that pulls out at the outer corners. I like it, Nina!
Lily cut her hair! I can't say I like it as much as the bob, but we'll have to see how she styles it moving forward. Here, it's all a bit androgynous. (Those brows tho!)
Heidi's makeup is good this time (no white waterlines to be found!). I'm not so into the hairstyle... and did you catch the stubbly armpits? We should also talk about nose hair removal soon, because I keep noticing that on celebs, too. (They are human, after all.)
Kylie looks pretty here, and I have always coveted her hair colour. Just wish she wouldn't wonk up her face with the Botox. That one brow is crazy arched!
Whoa, Nicole looks like a totally different person. I really like this eyeliner job—with the soft edges, it makes an impact without feeling harsh.
I'm getting a bit of an Alicia Keys vibe from Zoë here. I think she pulls off this dramatic eye makeup because it's in a modern shape, brows are natural yet full, and her skin is really fresh (with freckles!).
Holy bad lighting! I can't imagine Brittany left the house looking this red. The photog obviously hates her. She doesn't help matters by piling on the lashes and the Barbie lipstick. I miss her blonde. Remember the 2013 People's Choice Awards?
Speaking of bad lighting, this is even worse—they turned Natalie green! From what I can tell, she's still doing beauty right these days, with lovely brows, lashes and lips. Miss her.
Classic Camilla here. With brows like this, you can basically just show up with hair scraped back and minimal makeup—they ARE the look.
Lupita switched up her Oscars look by adding a deeper burgundy lipstick to go with the metallic eyes. When does this woman not look good?
You know how I've felt about Sarah lately—too much contour, too much everything!—but I geniunely love this. The high ponytail throws the spotlight on her doll-like features, and she's wearing the heck outta that red lipstick.
Beyoncé has a bob again! I mean, it probably won't last more than five minutes, but this is an awesome hairstyle (and colour). I hope she keeps it.
Rosie got her hair lobbed a little while back, and it definitely makes her seem more approachable. I like it! See how this brown makeup trend is really starting to stick?
Jennifer didn't change a thing versus her Oscars red carpet look. Hey, the woman knows what works...
Angie got stuck in the same greenish lighting as Natalie Portman, and it's really bringing out her mismatched under-eye concealer (and um, nose hairs!). Still, she's a beautiful woman and the high ponytail is fab on her.
Gillian really does not want to be here. Not sure why, because her styling seems good to me! I do think her hair colour is too brassy, though.
I'm surprised to see such heavy foundation on an OMGmodel. Right? Does she really need this much? But she has my dreambrows, so there's that.
Of course Lady Gaga busted out a brand new look compared to her Oscars red carpet showing. Long, fake-looking hair (despite the roots), blackened lips and loads more liner. Not loving.
So this is a first. Jennifer Lopez has a reverse Eagle, except instead of her face being darker than her neck, you have to go all the way down to her breasts. At least the rim of pink eyeshadow is gone, replaced by... baby blue?
Aw, looks like Emma didn't change much except her dress. Like a normal person, her hair is just a little fallen compared to earlier in the night, and her lipstick is worn off. Still a cutie!
Keira, too, didn't really do much for the after-party except change her dress and take out that questionable hairband.
Alessandra did her go-to beauty look of smudgy eyes, inner corner highlights and glossy, pillowy lips. She really doesn't have to try, does she?
Nice to see Kat with a bit less makeup (relatively speaking). I actually like this blue-grey shadow for her, and the lashes are are so much better now.
Nice to see Julianne trying out a different hairstyle than that textured bob we always used to see. The pink lip gloss is nice on her, but the brows feel a tad heavy.
Deborah Ann Woll
No major complaints here—Deborah's makeup looks fresh and pretty, if a bit predictable. I think she'd look so much more striking with darker hair.
Alexandra's another one where I don't get the need for the heavy eyeshadow, liner and lashes. Her eyes would pop with mascara'd lashes alone! This feels like she's trying way too hard.
Leslie swings wildly from being one of my favourites—like at the Globes—to looks like this, which is pretty underwhelming. The ponytail seems too casual and frizzy, and the middle part is a bit harsh.
This is fine, although I prefer Keke with darker hair (like this). The gold around the eyes and the pop of pink gloss are both pretty.
Compared to the Oscars, Chloë's after-party changes were to pull her hair half-up, wipe off the eyeshadow and add a slick of red lipstick. I like this look better!
I prefer Emmanuelle's hair down, but this is okay. I think it would've looked more modern just tight to the head instead of with the big floppy bun. Some blotting paper needed also!
Kelly doesn't need these lashes either... but I'm repeating myself. She's a beautiful woman, and I'd love to see this without the lashes, heavy brow-filling and with a side instead of cent part. Little tweaks!
Forget bad hair days... we all need to copy Sia and get hair-hats for bad beauty days.
