Known for her out-of-this-world outfits and glamorous red carpet appearances, Lady Gaga can do no wrong. This time, her full glam to no-makeup-makeup transformation not only proved how astonishing she looks with or without a full beat, but she has also moved so many others to looks and feel confident, too. Whether it's her dramatic mug or her skin-like glow, here's how you can achieve her full look at the Oscars.
BLACK SWAN-ESQUE GLAM
Creative makeup is all the rage these days, but nothing beats a classic smokey eye and a red lip. Celebrity makeup artist Sarah Tanno and Academy Award nominated hairstylist Frederic Aspiras teamed up to achieve this Black Swan-esque makeup look to match her dress fresh off the runway.
Lady Gaga looks all type of classy at the red carpet. The secret? It's not always about using vivid colors to make a statement, sometimes, it's all in the technique.
If you look closely, the hair and makeup is constructed to appear elongated and sculpted. To achieve this, all you need to take note of is to blend your eyeshadow, blush and contour upwards. Normally, one should brush powder contour and blush on the cheekbone, but for this look, we recommend applying the product higher than what you are usually used to.
Lady Gaga's mug isn't as intimidating to copy as you'd think. In fact, it's actually beginner-friendly. Rather than using black shadow for a smokey eye, start with your neutrals, and pack it on from lightest to darkest with an upward motion to elongate the eye look. Finish off with a red lip and a clear gloss, and you are good to go.
SKIN IS IN EVEN ON STAGE
This isn't the first time Lady Gaga stripped her makeup off. In fact, she's done it a few times. We can't blame her, she looks absolutely stunning with or without it. This year, she's done it again, and this time, it was onstage performing her latest song, Hold My Hand. As much as she's moved us with her amazing voice, she has also moved everyone when she chose to go natural during her performance.

While a full glam can do no wrong, it's good to let your skin breathe once in a while, too. After all, packing on layers of makeup can feel uncomfortable. Take inspo from Lady Gaga herself, who can sport an all-natural look, even onstage.
For women like Lady Gaga, going public without makeup can be no biggie, but for others, they might feel a little too exposed. If you're the type to beat their face in full glam but want to try out the natural look, opt for a a tinted moisturizer or a skin tint for a change. Who knows? It might be a gateway to a makeup-less mug, too.
