The Academy Awards are on Sunday, and if you haven'y figured out which movie to root for, don't panic. We all know the real competition is on the red carpet--at least the competition for best beauty look is. 

Over the years the Oscars red carpet has acted as a place for celebs to put their best face forward and make a lasting impression. Rooney Mara's 2012 goth-pretty makeup and Michelle Williams 2006 berry lip are just two of the looks that cemented them as style stars--and the looks that lots of people (us included) reference on a daily basis when looking in their makeup mirrors. (Though we'd say our day-to-day makeup is a little more like Kristen Stewart's 2013 Oscars look.)
