BIG BEAUTY TRENDS AT THE 87TH OSCARS TO STEAL

Posted by 03.02.15

The 87th Academy Awards produced a bejeweled lineup of actors and actresses on the crimson carpet. As one of the key catalysts for beauty trends (the other is Fashion Week, which preceded it), the Oscars are notable for their recipe of starlets and risk taking, classic looks and often edgy beauty choices.
