After being glued to red carpet coverage and speaking with publicists, makeup artists and hairstylists all day yesterday, I am beyond over the Oscars! Truth. However, there’s so much to talk about. Here’s a round up of some of the beauty loot the pros used on celebs like Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Hudson, Adele and more before they hit the carpet. Believe it or not, a lot of it is from the drugstore!

To enhance her spray tan (which she got the day before the Oscars) Salma Hayek’s makeup artist, Jo Strettell, applied St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Firming Body Lotion to her body before she hit the red carpet.
To mimic her soft pink dress, Anne Hathaway’s manicurist, Tom Bachik, first used L’Oréal Paris’ new limited-editionVersailles Romance Colour Riche Nail Collection (coming out in March) called “The Palace Life.” Then added a personal touch by painting her grandmother’s initials on her ring fingers.
