Is it just me or did the Oscars get REALLY awkward last night? Thankfully when it comes to beauty on the red carpet, there can be more than one winner. I predicted that we were going to see some bold beauty looks and it’s safe to saw, we saw just that. The biggest trend? A pop of color on the eyes! Here are a few of my favorite beauty looks that stunned the red carpet scene.

I decided to play pretend and recreate my own red carpet glam. I teamed up with celebrity makeup artist (and friend!) Lyndsay Zavitz to …
