Whether you're dressing the part for an Oscar's party or just want to add some red carpet glam for your next night out, check out these tips to win every award in the beauty department!

1. The Dress

A long black or white dress with a flattering cut will elevate your look effortlessly and provide the perfect backdrop for your makeup and hair game. Jennifer Lawrence might rock Dior on the red carpet, but for the rest of us, choose fit over brand.

Fresh skin, big retro waves, a dramatic cat eye and a precise red lip are a winning Oscar's beauty combination! WomensForum teamed with Goldplaited, a styling salon in Chicago, to show off how you can achieve this look.

Make sure to use concealer as a primer to keep your pout looking fresh all night. Another lippie tip: Use a brush to paint your lipstick on instead of applying directly from the tube for a more precise professional look.

3. Pumps

There's really no reason to go crazy with your shoes when you have a long dress that'll be demanding all the attention. Pick a pair of gorgeous pumps you can wear all night and you're set.
