Our fave celebs are bringing the ’90s back this award season with a classic brown makeup palette. Stars like Emily Blunt and Felicity Jones are sporting coppery shadows for a natural, dewy look, while Kerry Washington and Dascha Polanco are using brown-based hues on their lips. These shades are classic and complement the bright, bold colors we’re seeing on their gowns. We’re counting down the days until the Academy Awards and predicting even more natural beauty looks on the red carpet.
