There’s only one thing better than the beauty looks at the Oscars: the beauty looks at the after parties. Although the main event can bring out some stunning hair and makeup looks, the after parties are where celebs have a bit more fun and take some risks. From metallic smokey eyes (we’re looking at you, Vanessa Hudgens) to stunning retro waves (*cough* Amy Adams *cough*), we’re coveting these celebrity beauty looks from the Oscars after parties. Get your Pinterest finger ready. You’re going to want to save these.

If you're looking for the smokey eye to end all smokey eyes, Selena Gomez might just be your muse. The singer's winged smize matched the hardware on her metallic dress in the best way possible.

We're still swooning over Taylor Swift's freshly chopped bob, which framed the singer's subtly contoured cheeks perfectly.

With just a hint of color around the lids, this tropical green shadow made Olivia Munn's dark brown eyes pop!

There's nothing more elegant than a windswept updo and a classic red lip. Just ask Kate Upton, who mastered the pair beautifully.

We collectively gasped at the sight of Kate Hudson's gorgeous bronzed glow. From her cheeks to her cupid's bow, Hudson is single-handedly making us want to book a beach vacation STAT.

Everything about this look from Lily Aldridge was eye catching. From the stark center part to the most perfectly contoured cheek bones, this is one look we're dying to emulate.

With her hair gracefully tucked behind her ear, Freida Pinto looked nothing short of a vision of classic beauty.

Alessandra Ambrosio's tucked tresses might have been a little unconventional, but we're completely loving the sleek look paired with a bold choker.

The award for the most doable beauty look has to go to Jessica Biel, whose beachy waves and peach lip are simple yet refined.

If Hailee Steinfeld's brown smokey eye isn't the most sexy update on a dark lid, we don't know what else is.

Cue cheek envy. Ashley Graham's skin was simply luminescent with a touch of highlighter on the apples of the cheeks.

We never understood the impact shiny hair can have until we spotted Sophie Turner's beyond lovely waves.

As if we needed any convincing silver eyeshadow was a must try, Lily Donaldson single-handedly reinforced our metallic love.

Brittany Snow's lashes alone are worth noting, but her pretty pink lipstick is actually a combo of two (drugstore!) products: Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands and Tulip Tied.

Nothing says red carpet more so than a gorgeous mound of curls. These chocolate waves from Sanaa Lathan were all that and more. Oh and did we mention that touch of white shimmer at the inner corners of the eyes? Swoon.

We can't tell what's more radiating, Alicia Vikander's amazing skin and rosy cheeks or her much-deserved Oscar.

Fresh off her platinum transition, Jennifer Lawrence stuck to a simple yet elegant straight 'do paired with smoldering smokey eye. The result? Modern sophistication and two thumbs up.

Our pick for most enviable lipstick of the night hands down goes to Kate Beckinsale, whose glossy coral color is giving us life.

It's always a risk wearing a bold lipstick, but Kate Bosworth succeeded in every way possible with this peachy coral pout.
