We sure hope that the Oscar after parties served plenty of food, because a few red carpet show-stoppers were eating for two! While all of the mommies-to-be looked ravishing on Sunday evening, we fell in love with Olivia Wilde’s sharp cat eye and dewy skin (though she does have that whole “pregnancy glow” home-court advantage).Celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis drew inspiration from the 60′s when creating this classic French look, which makes the eye appear bigger and bolder regardless of the shape and size of the lid.
Here’s how to get her look.
As a Revlon Global Brand Ambassador, Olivia rocked the affordable drugstore brand from start to finish. Inglessis began by smoothing Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer all over Olivia’s face and neck, followed by Revlon PhotoReady Makeup in Nude. She skipped blush, opting for an illuminator instead for a smoother look. Next she used Revlon ColorStay Shadow Links in Taupe to create a darker canvas the liner, dusting the shadow from Olivia’s lash line to her eyelid crease. She then used Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black to create the dramatic cat eye. To achieve an even swipe like you see here, you have to work very quickly — the slower your hand, the shakier the application when it comes to liquid liner. She skipped the false lashes and opted for a swipe of classic black. Olivia’s nude lip was created by using a combination of Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Complex (an LHJ editor favorite) and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink Cognito.

If there’s one key piece for spring it’s the perfect jacket. While we opt for a trench at work and statement toppers for our nights out, most days we’re living in a military-inspired jacket like this one. It works as a neutral and plays nicely with dressy, sequin pieces and drapey tees alike. We couldn’t resist partnering this version with on-trend boyfriend jeans and bright heels.

Good news — you only have to shave half of your legs this spring! It’s the season of the midi skirt, a hemline that ranges anywhere from just below the knee to just above the ankle. Whether you go for a 1950’s voluminous tea length style or prefer something sleek and fitted, the midi skirt adds a touch of old-school elegance to just about any look.

We’ve noticed a new silhouette on the block when it comes to outerwear. The cocoon coat was all over fashion week and it’s slowing winding its way into our favorite fast-fashion stores as well. While the silhouette has been on the scene since Balenciaga debuted it in 1957, it’s recently been sidelined by body-hugging car coats and edgy moto jackets. We love the cocoon coat because it’s easy to wear. Plus, it exudes a downtown-cool-girl sense of style. The newest versions for spring come in candy-colored pinks, dusty rose, sky blue, and ivory hues. We’d pair this blue one with a white and black ensemble and some chic blush accessories.

Let’s all agree to just ignore the cold and lingering snow, shall we? We’re focusing our energies on bright new separates, perfectly worn-in denim, and airy accessories. If by any chance you are still dusted in snow (like us, le sigh) pair this bright jacket with a camel or white turtleneck until temperatures warm up.

We get it, Winter, you’re big and bad. You’re a bully of the worst kind–unrelenting–shoving us into the same miles-thick sweaters and clompy boots for weeks on end. We’re so over you. So, instead of indulging you with another post full of warm layers, we’re letting our imaginations turn to that elusive season called spring. We’ve heard rumor that it’s a time of sweet sunshine and mild days. Should this time ever arrive, we’re planning to indulge in our new favorite trendy color–cobalt blue– and some fabulous white boyfriend jeans. Check out more of our favorite cobalt blue pieces, here, and keep your mind fixed on sunshine. (We’re going to will this winter away!)
