It’s not the shiny gold statue that will be garnering all of the attention at the Academy Awards — it's the fashion statement that’s made by those will be lucky enough to hold one.

Buzz names you’ll hear when a reporter asks the inevitable “Who are you wearing?” are designers including Dior, Zac Posen, Versace, Oscar De La Renta, and many more. But it's about more than the dress — it's about the look. Shoes, bags, jewelry, hair. Each detail is all-important to the overall flawless appearance.

In anticipation of the 85th Academy Awards on Feb. 24, I’ve found beauty secrets the stars use to perfect their looks. Here are 10 that you can use too.

1. According to makeup artist Joanna Schlip (refinery29.com) putting cherry Jell-O on moisturized lips will stain your lips so you won’t have to reapply constantly. She says to just dip your finger in the powder and layer on wet lips.

2. If you want luscious, silky hair condition your hair when it’s dry, author Kym Douglas suggests. It holds in moisture better. You can leave it in for a while or rinse straight away.

3. My favorite beauty tip is to apply nasal spray or Visine to a blemish to take away the acne inflammation. Proactiv founder Dr. Kathy Fields says they work like a steroid. Since eye drops and nasal spray shrink blood vessels, they can get rid of puffiness and under eye circles.

4. According to refinery29, celebrities often take baths after their makeup is applied. This sets the makeup and gives it a dewy look.
