Despite having obsessed over Reese Witherspoon’s red carpet glam and fashion already, the actress’s new Instagram reel has me marvelling all over again. The 45-year-old blessed her 25 million Instagram followers with a Makeup Brush Challenge video. In it, she starts makeup-free and in a polka dot robe before briefly flashing her makeup brush in front of the camera lens as the frame transitions to capture her in full Oscars glam and red hot halter-neck Christian Dior gown. In the accompanying caption, she jokingly wrote, “#Oscars glam: What… like it’s hard?”

Los Angeles-based makeup artist Tracey Levy is the expert behind Witherspoon’s makeup, brought to life using Biossance skincare, Armani Beauty cosmetics, and Artis makeup brushes (specifically the brand’s Elite Collection Oval 6 Palm Brush Mini and the Digit Skincare Oval 6 ). Hairstylist Lona Vigi styled her strands with ghd heat tools. The actress wore her blonde hair down and parted in the center for a finished look that was both timeless and Gen Z-approved. Paired with her Bulgari jewels, the whole beauty and fashion moment was *chefs kiss* perfection.

GRAZIA doesn’t have specific details about what exact makeup products Levy used for the star’s 2021 Oscars glam but stay tuned for more information. 

Behind-the-scenes before the 93rd annual Academy Awards

In Witherspoon’s first Instagram post of the evening, the 93rd annual Oscars presenter expressed her excitement for the event. “Congratulations to all of tonight’s #Oscars nominees!” she wrote. “I’m so honored to be a part of this evening, celebrating the magic of movies and their ability to make us feel more connected to the world around us. Swipe to see my hot date [read: Laura Dern].”

If you need us, we’ll be trying to decide what’s more obsession-worthy: Witherspoon’s natural-glam Oscars makeup or her friendship with Dern. It’s a tough choice, no?
