Emma Roberts was a total bombshell with her romantic red lip, copper smoky eye and gorgeous Hollywood glam hair. Roberts wowed everyone when she showed up to the red carpet debuting her new, shiny red mane. To play on her romantic vibes, she paired the gorgeous look with a black and white lace gown that left onlookers swooning.

To get her gorgeous look, Roberts teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, who prepped Roberts' face with Charlotte Tilbury Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, (coming soon), to hydrate, brighten and smooth her face. Tilbury applied Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, $46, for the perfect glow-y base and sculpted her cheekbones (using Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, $68.

Sexy Smoky Eye
Taraj P. Henson arrived to the 2017 Oscars ready to slay. Henson sported a sexy skin-tight velvet gown, which she paired with a sultry smoky eye and high brow. To make her brown beauties really pop, she applied a white shimmery shadow down the center of her lids and blended. She might be sporting some dazzling bling, but her gorgeous makeup is the star of the show.

Henson's makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, was the mastermind behind her flawless face. To get her sexy smoky eye, Sheriff started by applying the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, $20, and followed with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, $20, to line the eyes on the top and bottom lash lines. After blending out the eyeliner, Sheriff used the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette, $54, and blended black in the crease and dark brown on the top to soften the edges. To add some definition to Henson's dark eyes, Sheriff lined her top and lower lash line with M.A.C. Creme Liner, $17, and smudged it using Q-Tips. To make the eyes really pop, Sheriff applied NYX Roll On Eye Shimmer, $4, in Salmon, down the center of her eyes and in the inner corner of the eyes.

Ethereal Bad Girl
The "Edge of Seventeen" Actress Hailee Steinfeld was an ethereal angel on the red carpet. Her romantic double-knot updo and billowing floral gown complemented her glowing complexion and pretty pink lip, but to stay true to her bad-girl side -- Steinfeld rocked a smudgy maroon smoky eye. While a bold move, the eye makeup brought all the attention to Steinfeld's dark eyes.

To create her classy updo, Steinfeld teamed up with celebrity stylist Chris Appleton who says he "went for a bold style to complement the mixture of classic and modern vibes given from her gown." To start, Appleton prepped Steinfeld's wet strands with Toni & Guy Prep: Heat Protectant Mist High Temperature Protection, $6.39, and blow-dried hair backwards away from the face using a paddle brush. Once dry, Appleton sectioned off the top half of hair and gathered the lower half into a ponytail at the back of the head. Then, Appleton applied Toni & Guy Style Spray Wax, $14.99, throughout the top section for a high-shine effect and began curling her hair using a 1-inch curling iron. Once the curls were cool, he gently brushed Steinfeld's curls out and joined them to the existing ponytail, wrapping sections of hair from the ponytail in a clockwise motion above and below, twisting into a flower shape. He secured the gorgeous look with pins and Toni & Guy Medium Hold Hairspray, $12.99.

Negga kept her look simple and elegant, sweeping her dark tendrils into a romantic updo embellished with a gorgeous ruby headband, which matched her red gown beautifully. As for her makeup? She combined a pretty red lip with a hazy, light smoky eye. The result? Pure beauty
