Parked in front of your TV right now, eating trashy takeout and drinking cheap champagne? Us, too. After all, there’s no better way to “celebrate” the 88th Academy Awards.

Things are looking up this year—and we’ve already got the standout dresses locked and loaded, so what’s left but to take a closer look at the very best hair and makeup on the red carpet? Behold, all the looks we just can’t get over, from Priyanka Chopra’s perfect berry lipstick to Saoirse Ronan’s sexy tousled hair. So good.

A natural, lightly bronzed makeup look is Alicia Vikander’s go-to, which is all the more reason to pay very, very close attention to that cool half-up bun. It’s like Sailor Moon goes red carpet.

Jennifer Lawrence is everything we wanted Jennifer Lawrence to be on tonight’s red carpet. This may just be one of her very best looks yet.

Nothing pairs with bold blue quite as well as a purple-leaning berry shade, just like the lip color Brie Larson used to contrast that rich sapphire dress.

We’d never expect anything less than perfection from Cate Blanchett, who truly outdid herself with fresh-faced makeup and a simple yet stunning bob.

The only thing we can really say about Charlize Theron is that she’s so gorgeous it’s almost hard to look at. It’s like staring into the sun.

Chrissy Teigen totally embodied the cliche “pregnant lady glow.” Almost makes us want to go get knocked up just to score that radiant effect. Almost.

Emily Blunt, every bit the pretty, poreless English rose. Sigh.

Yes, girl: Jennifer Garner slays in this natural, yet somehow totally striking, look.

Julianne Moore is shiny hair goals—and her enviably clear complexion isn’t half bad, either.

Ugh, so good. Kate Winslet has historically favored sleek updos on the red carpet, so this more natural wavy look is a delightful departure.

Nailed it: Kerry Washington’s cat eye and nude lip combo is so simple, but she’s somehow made it look new and modern.

True to form, Lady Gaga showed up in full-on silver screen glamour with a wavy platinum bob and a gorgeous metallic smoky eye.

Margot Robbie went total red-carpet golden girl with bronzed skin and monochromatic makeup. She kind of looks like an Oscar statuette herself?

Naomi Watts consistently serves up on-point Hollywood elegance, and this classic look is no exception.

Olivia Wilde went clean and classic with dewy skin, a subtle purple smoky eye, and a braided updo.

Priyanka Chopra positively stunned in this effortless look. Well-groomed brows and a flattering berry lip color are a recipe for success.

All the heart eyes emojis for Rachel McAdams, who looked insanely good in nude lipstick, a slicked-back undo, and a flash of subtle green eyeliner. Well-done.

Rooney, Rooney, Rooney—the actress stuck to her high-contrast guns with a brick red lip and a severe, itty-bitty bun.

Tousled, texturized hair and black-lined bedroom eyes made Saoirse Ronan a real show-stopper.

As anyone who’s ever chased the red hair dragon already knows, Sophie Turner’s hair color is the auburn dream.
