A-list actresses glammed up the Oscars red carpet on Sunday. Not only were their designer dresses the talk of the evening, but the stand out trend was beautiful brows. While some made the mark, others missed the cut. Celebrity brow stylist and Brow Police Joey Healy selects the hits and misses and reveals how to get these gorgeous looks.



I dreamed a dream of perfect eyebrows! The Les Miserables starlet and winner for Best Supporting Actress dazzled the red carpet with bold, brunette brows which worked perfectly to balance her short pixie cut. I would have loved to see her sweep those bangs aside even more, to really showcase her flawless, bold brows.

Adele’s brows definitely made the Skyfall (in a good way)! Winner for Best Original Song’s brow color perfectly complimented her sandy blonde locks and her beauty look is all about the eyes. I love this soft, yet finished brow to complete her look, it says "glamour" all the way.

With Charlize Theron’s newly cropped coif, there was no hiding those brows. She set her own trend for the evening, stepping away from thick, bushy brows, and went for a streamlined, elegant arch that work flawlessly with her bone structure. The ashy, taupe tone of her brows, really brings out the emerald green in her eyes.

Kerry Washington wowed the crowd with her luscious, thick brows. This Django Unchained actress looks like she just stepped off the New York Fashion Week runway. For someone with a prominent mouth, high cheek bones and large eyes, her brows harmoniously balanced the rest of her features. Her eyebrows play into her youthful appearance and enhance her fresh-faced look.

Jessica Chastain’s role in Zero Dark Thirty was all about the search, yet the search is still on for her eyebrows. To balance out her bold lip color, she needed a bold brow to keep her face in high/low proportion. She missed the mark on achieving a polished brow look and should have opted for a soft cinnamon powder.

Oscar golden girl and Best Actress winner, Jennifer Lawrence looked like Hollywood royalty, although her brows were not the stars of her beauty look. While her Oscar nominated role was bold and daring, her brows did not follow the Playbook. Whisper light and thin, her eyebrows are not up to my standards of perfection.

Jennifer Garner showed support for hubby Ben Affleck on the red carpet, but her brows did not glam up her look. Jennifer’s eyebrows would benefit from being darker, especially with her light, airy makeup. Her shape is on-point, but the resulting brow looks patchy and sparse.

Amanda Seyfried’s brows are so Miserables. The awkward, brassy tone is too light and looks disjointed from her hair color. A triumphant start to her shape sadly fizzles to an underwhelming tail; it looks as if she may have been too tweezer happy with the ends of her eyebrows. Her disappointing beauty look was simply not red carpet worthy.
