Tonight’s Oscars saw our favorite celebrities taking to the champagne carpet giving everything from old-Hollywood glamour to sleek, modern beauty. Throughout the night, a common thread amongst our most beloved A-lister’s was a return to the classic smokey eye. From eyeliners to shadow palettes to falsies and more, here’s a run down of the products behind the smokey eye looks that took over the carpet this year.
Paired with a gorgeous Elie Saab gown and a sleek, low bun, Delevingne rocked an understated yet alluring, pink-toned smokey eye. Bold, full falsies courtesy of Ardell Lashes completed the look.

The Everything Everywhere All At Once Oscar winner’s smokey eye was made with all Anastasia Beverly Hills makeup products. The actress’s makeup artist, Grace Ahn, revealed that she used the brands Primrose Palette ($55) and mixed shades Honey and Primrose in the crease for transition before tapping on Sparkling Amber onto lids for shine and finishing with Deep Berry to smudge eyeliner and into the outer corners. Ahn also used the brand’s Darkside Waterproof Gel Liner ($18) in Black and two coats of the Lash Brag Volumizing Mascara ($25) to complete the sultry look.
The star aspect of Pugh’s smoked-out look was the sharp cat eye, and the star’s MUA Alex Babsky shared on Instagram that he used Valentino Beauty’s Twin Liner ($40) in Black & Nero to create such a sleek line. He also used the brand’s Eye2Cheek Blush & Eye Color ($58) and Magnificent Mascara ($32) to round out the peachy yet smokey look.
Nominated for Best Original Song, Gaga took to the carpet wearing a look comprised solely of products from her own line, Haus Labs. The star’s look was centered around a bold, black waterline and dramatic cat eye courtesy of the line’s Optic Intensity Eco Eyeliner ($22) in Black Onyx Matte.
“For statement eyes, apply L’Oreal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Eyeliner ($12) in ‘Blue’ along the top lashline, and blend blue shadow into the crease and under the eyes,” says MacDowell’s makeup artist Mary Wiles. “Opt for L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Eyeliner in ‘Intense Black’ in water lines and blend up and out. Top lashes off with L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Lift Mascara ($15).”
Matlin’s makeup artist, Brett Freedman, used all Laura Geller products to give the Coda star “smoked realness.” “To keep the smoked eye crisp I used the INKcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner ($38) around the entire eye and on the waterline for the ultimate pop,” he explains. “I used a mix of light and dark, light-catching shades from the Best of the Best Baked Full Face Basics ($79) palette on the eyes. Pro tip: I applied the shimmery shade Oyster and Almond with a damp brush for a chrome finish and finished off with three whopping coats of Always There Waterproof Mascara ($24) to ensure night-long wear.”
