Quantico’s, Priyanka Chopra’s beauty game during this season’s Oscars subtle point. Her rosy lip matched with sultry eye makeup is soft enough for everyday wear.

Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara - Oscars

Needless too say, I’m obsessed with the makeup look Rooney Mara wore to the Academy Awards this year, which perfectly accented her chiseled features. A matte, crimson lip and smoky brown lids are the perfect recipe for a night out.

Golden Globes

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde - Golden Globes

Nothing says you’re ready for a night out than a pop of bright color on the lids, and Olivia Wilde’s pink, smoky eye feels lived in, yet elegant. Pair this fun eye look with a nude lip so you don’t go too over the top.

SAG Awards

Alicia Vikander

Alicia Vikander - SAG

Not only is Alicia Vikander’s acting game on point (she recently walked away with an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work in The Danish Girl), but I for one was all about her minimal, sun kissed makeup look during this year’s SAG awards.

  • Lip and cheek stain (BECCA Beach Tint, “Fig,” Sephora.com, $25)

Viola Davis

Viola Davis - SAG

Viola Davis was a showstopper in this matchy plum makeup look, which also happened to match her gown at the SAG awards. Usually I’m not for similar colors on the lips and eyes, but Viola’s cooler makeup balanced out her overall look beautifully.

Let’s face it — you really can’t go wrong with a chic, traditional smoky eye — just ask Laverne Cox. This makeup look is the perfect compliment to almost any night time outfit, award show or not.
