Sisley Glossy Gloss

oscar_beauties.jpgThere were plenty of head-turners at last night’s Academy Awards, but these three were head, shoulders and eyelashes above the rest.

Jennifer Garner sported a gorgeous girl-next-door-goes-glam look with her messy updo, loose side-parted bangs, strong eyes and pale lips. She managed to look sexy, yet fresh without appearing as if she tried too hard.

Katherine Heigl opted for a retro bombshell look with Marilyn Monroe-esque hair and a strong red lip to match her stunning red dress. Flawless skin and lush lashes completed the look.

As for Penelope Cruz, is it just us or is this the best she has ever looked? Her sleek half-up/half-down ‘do and sultry smoky eye showed off her unique features to their fullest. Sophisticated, timeless and beautiful.
