Places, everyone, it's finally time for the big show! That's right—the 2021 Academy Awards have arrived (albeit a little later than usual), and we couldn't be more ready for the epic finale to this year's awards season. For obvious reasons, red carpets have looked a bit different this year and have taken us on a more digital journey than ever before. But this hasn't stopped our favourite celebs from serving up some seriously jaw-dropping beauty moments from the Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, SAG Awards, and more. This evening's Oscar Awards are sure to be even more exciting.

As we all know, big beauty moments at the Oscars are nothing new. But after a year spent wearing nothing but sweatpants and with less makeup and hairstyling than ever before, we're confident our faves will bring it on the Oscars red carpet this year. Keep scrolling for the most showstopping beauty looks to inspire all your hair and makeup aspirations for when we can show our faces in public again.

Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor! Zendaya is absolutely stunning with those flowing mermaid locks and soft, glowy makeup. And those brows? Always iconic.

Must-have beauty product: Lancôme Brow Shaping Powdery Pencil in Light Brown (£23)

As if the coily faux hawk weren't gorgeous enough, Ms. Viola also hit us with a pink lip. We love.

Must-have beauty product: Matrix Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray(£9)

This red lip is also speaking to us.

Must-have beauty product: Sisley Paris Tango Phyto-Lip Twist Matte (£32)

Regina King can do no wrong in our book, but this monochromatic sky blue moment is something special.

Must-have beauty product: Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense Eyeliner Pencil in Intense Ivy (£17)

This ponytail moment is certainly a departure from Margot's usual lob haircut. We're loving the face-framing fringe and the overall laid-back vibe. Plus, her glowy makeup is just too good.

Must-have beauty product: Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Illuminating Powder(£47)

Andra is a golden goddess this evening!

We are loving how Glenn's signature pixie cut is styled tonight.

It's the soft glam for us. Her very best accessory? All that bare skin!

Must-have beauty product: CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask (£299)

We are loving this royal purple eye shadow moment! It's not often we get to see a colour story like this at the Oscars and it's just gorgeous. Her easy, flowing hair was the perfect complement.

Must-have beauty product: Wella
EIMI Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray (£12)

If there's one thing we know about Ms. Angela, it's that she'll never miss an opportunity to give us a bold eye shadow moment. And she never misses, either!

Must-have beauty product: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Eyeshadow Palette in Blue Hypnotique (£43)

There are no word for this glamorous look. Everything about it exudes Hollywood glamour.

Must-have beauty product: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Fusion (£43)

This asymmetrical, ultra-short bob is such a different look for Halle! We're loving the switch-up, especially the trendy baby bangs. And we'll always appreciate that steadfastly glowy skin.

Fresh skin and sleek hair will never go out of style.

Must-have beauty product: Phyto Glossing Cream (£17)

A sleek middle part is always a good idea. Pair it with bronzy eye shadow, as Reese has here, and you're all set.

Ladies and gentlemen: H.E.R. A red carpet appearance by this bonafide rockstar is never boring. That berry lip and dramatic eyeliner are such a vibe.

What a breathtaking look. From the perfect braids to the laid baby hairs and the dramatic smokey eye, it all works.

Vanessa is looking so good this evening! That sleek updo is fire, and the oxblood lip is quickly becoming her signature.

These beautiful barrel curls are so classic and so stunning.

Must-have beauty product: Sisley Paris Hair Rituel Volumizing Spray (£70)

Ms. Rita has long-embraced her grey and we love that she wore her signature flipped crop haircut.

Director Chloé's fresh skin and simple braids exude such power.

Imagine attending the Oscars for date night. We, too, would rock some pretty curls and a bold lip, a la Isla Fisher.

It's the voluminous natural hair, for us, but we're not mad at the red lip, either.

Must-have beauty product: Sisley Paris Phyto-Lèvres Perfect Lip Pencil (£42)

Olivia's sleek haircut is so dreamy.

This smooth, sleek ponytail is so perfect and so satisfying to look at.
