Every Makeup Item Used for Ashley Graham's Dramatic Oscars Look Was Under $20
Every year, the entire WWW team keeps a close eye on both the beauty and fashion looks coming down the Oscars red carpet. We on the beauty team especially look forward to every spectacular hair and makeup moment, and this year's carpet wasn't lacking in either. A particular beauty look that stood out was Ashley Graham's sweeping updo and winged liner paired with a custom Alberta Ferretti dress.
Luckily, we got a complete breakdown of her glamorous hair and makeup look from hairstylist Mashal Afzalzada and makeup artist Ivan Núñez. You'll also be jazzed to know that every product used for Graham's dramatic makeup look is under $20 and from a familiar-favorite drugstore brand! Keep scrolling and find out which one.
When describing the look, Núñez said, "We wanted to go for a classic Hollywood glamour look with a twist. I was heavily inspired by the sharp graphic lines of the gown! So I gave her a beautiful, sharp, smoked-out liner moment."
Núñez started with this radiance-boosting foundation from Revlon as a base.
To brighten up Graham's under-eye area, Núñez then went in with this hydrating concealer.
To give Graham a sun-kissed glow, Núñez then applied this bronzer with crystal-like pigments and pearls that create a flattering glow without too much glitter.
To set the look, he then went in with the translucent setting powder.
For a touch of color on the cheeks, Núñez dusted on this soft powder blush.
This liquid eyeliner was used to create her stunning dramatic wing.
On the eyes, Núñez went for the ColorStay Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette in Moonlit, an eye shadow quad with four highly pigmented shimmer shades.
Graham is also wearing this volume-boosting mascara, which (with daily use) will help darken bare lashes over time. Best of all, it does this without clumping, smudging, or flaking.
We're so grateful Núñez shared this gorgeous lip shade with us. We'll definitely be snagging since it's only $6.
Layering this juicy gloss over the lipstick was the cherry on top of a perfect look.
Afzalzada started Graham's hair by prepping with the Living Proof Smooth Styling Spray before blow-drying to smooth the hair and prevent static and flyaways.
Next, she sprayed Living Proof's Style Lab Control Hairspray section by section for a firm hold as she slicked the hair into different ponytails.
After applying the Vanishing Oil, she twisted the hair into multiple sections and then pinned them in a chignon shape. She then finished the look with a bit more of the Control Hairspray.
