Makeup artist Jo Strettell gave Demi her glowing Oscars makeup look, and now we've got the breakdown so you can do the same for yourself. Strettell created Demi's soft smoky eye by lining them with a carbon black eyeliner, then applying Lancôme Color Design Eye in Ciel du Soir on her lids. To highlight, Strettell swept Color Design Eye in Honeymoon on Demi's brow bones and in her inner Vs. She then curled Demi's lashes and applied waterproof black mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.
For Demi’s lips, Strettell used a base coat of Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere, followed by a dab of Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling. She swept Lancôme Blush Subtil in Rose Fresque across the apples of Demi's cheeks — giving her just the right amount of red-carpet glow.

Cameron Diaz's golden waves
Cameron Diaz's Oscars hairstyle was a throwback to Hollywood's golden era, reinterpreting Veronica Lake's classic waves for a new century. Her stylist, Lona Vigi, created a side-swept look to show off Cameron's Oscar de la Renta gown.
To get shiny hair, Vigi used Liqwd Professional Volumizing Catalyst spray before blow-drying Cameron's hair with a luxe Velecta Paramount Paris TGR 4000i dryer. ("These are amazing," she said. "The combination of these two gives you so much shine and volume.") She used a round Ibiza brush while drying, then followed by sectioning hair and rolling it back in hot rollers. Next, she brushed out the curls, swept them to the side, and finished with L'Oreal Elnett hair spray.
Stylist Robert Vetica wanted Jennifer's look for the Oscars to be "very modern and sophisticated," so he gave her this tousled updo.
To create the look, he began by applying Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream on Jennifer's wet hair, then blew it straight. Once it was completely dry, Vetica sectioned her hair into two ponytails, one on top of the other, to create volume below the crown of the head.
Next, Vetica used a curling iron on each ponytail and brushed them both out to create volume. He pinned her hair up into a bun, and then strategically pulled out strands to create a textured effect. To frame her face, he pulled out flyaways around her forehead and finished with high-hold hairspray. Glamorous!
When a stylist knows his client, the results fit her personality to a T. Such was the case with the man who created Kristen Stewart's look, Frederic Fekkai's Renato Campora. He says he wanted to create a "modern, edgy look with a young vibe."
To create the style, Campora applied Fekkai Strong Hold Volume Mousse ($23) to Kristen's wet hair, combing the product through from root to tip. He then dried her hair straight using a large-barreled round brush. Then, he used a one-inch barrel curling iron to create waves and texture. To give her more volume and movement, he worked Fekkai Au Naturel Dry Shampoo ($23) into her hair as well.
Campora then created a few loose braids down the sides of Kristen's hair, beginning halfway down the strands, and left them untied at the ends to create extra dimension to the look. He pulled all her hair back into a low chignon and secured it with large bobby pins. To keep everything in place, he gave her hair a once-over with high hold hairspray. Simple, unique, and totally Kristen.
