Steal Dakota Johnson's Super-Sexy Oscar Beauty Look (PHOTOS)

Dakota Johnson Oscars

Miss Fifty Shades of Grey looked SMOKIN' at the Oscars Sunday night, no? Dakota Johnson's Yves Saint Laurent dress was red hot, but it was only part of the equation. Her hair and makeup were utter perfection, and we can all steal a page or two from her beauty book.


Let's start with her sassy ponytail. Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend dreamed up this sassy 'do -- a bold choice for such a formal occasion, but it totally worked. He started by working a little Youthful Vitality Silk Crème through her damp hair, then blowing it dry with a rubber-cushion brush. What gives the ponytail volume and texture is a liberal spraying of Dry Shampoo throughout her hair -- AFTER blowdrying, and before pulling it into a ponytail.

Bonus tip: According to Mark, "The key to dressing up a ponytail is in the details, so I pulled a small amount of hair from the ponytail, wrapped it around the base to hide the elastic, and secured with bobby pins." Aha!

Next: makeup. Those gorgeous smudgy eyes and that almost bright red but not quite lip perfection! There's something a little demure about the toned down red, right? Makes it even sexier!

Rouge COCO lipstick Gabrielle 444

Makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua created Dakota's gorgeous look. She used Chanel Precision Lip Definer in 92 Capucine and Chanel Rouge COCO lipstick in 444 Gabrielle. But, if Chanel's a little pricey for you, Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Garnet Flame would do the trick very nicely.

For an easy smoky eye, I love the Benefit Smokin' Eyes kit, and Almay makes a really nice, affordable smoky eye kit as well.

Dakota Johnson Oscars nails

Last but not least, did you happen to notice those vampy red nails? Deborah Lippman did Dakota's Oscars manicure, but they're not telling us what the color is. Sneaky! Two great options for a similar, vamped out mani: Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies and Essie Poor Li'l Rich Girl.
