Awkwafina showed up to the 2019 Oscars looking Awkwa-FINE-a as hell, if we do say so ourselves. We adored her gorgeous lavender DSquared pantsuit complete with pussybow, but more so loved her lived-in waves and peachy cheeks. Makeup artist Mai Quynh said her outfit had "a flirty spring feeling to it," which was incorporated into her makeup look.
Using all Giorgio Armani Beauty, Quynh prepped Awkwafina's with Kiehl's Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque ($45), then created a base using the iconic Luminous Silk Foundation in 5.75 ($64) with a damp BeautyBlender ($20). She concealed under her eyes using Power Fabric Concealer in 3.5 ($34). To bring a flush to the cheek, she added Neo Nude A-Blush in 50 ($38) and highlighted using A-Highlight in 10 ($38). The eyes included only three products: Eye Tint Eyeshadow in 12 ($39) all over her lid, Eye & Brow in 1 ($30) along her upper lash line, and then she layered Eyes to Kill Eye Quattro Eyeshadow in 4 ($58). She finished two coats of Eccentrico Mascara ($32). $398
For her hair, stylist Anh Co Tran, known for creating his signature Lived-In styles, said he wanted to add a "modern tweak to classic waves." He rough dried the hair first using and added L'Oreal Pro Constructor (in salons only) to give the waves hold throughout the night and ghd Air Hair Dryer ($199) and then gave her what he coins as "nuwaves" with the ghd Platinum+ Styler ($249), rounding the edges and giving even heat to the entire hair cuticle. After the waves were complete, he backcombed each section and finished with a texture spray.
