With the 86th annual Academy Awards coming up on Sunday, we here at RealSelf are anxiously anticipating the glamorous red carpet looks. This has been a banner year for our favorite leading ladies, with nominees in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories spanning legends and newcomers alike—including Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong’o.

From Amy Adams’ daring plunging necklines, to Julia Roberts’ loose, sexy waves and Jennifer Lawrence’s recent foray into the pixie cut—we love that these ladies embody confidence.

We wanted to break down a few noninvasive cosmetic procedures that are natural-looking options to help achieve a certain star quality, for those of us that aren’t as genetically gifted as Hollywood’s elite. So we asked Dr. Paul Nassif, renowned Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon, to weigh in. Check out Dr. Nassif’s tips below and let us know in the comments who you are looking forward to seeing this weekend!

Cheeks: to get Sandra Bullock's fullness in the cheeks, Dr. Nassif recommends Voluma. This new filler is designed to add youthful volume to the cheeks and yields an amazing outcome when the injections are performed properly by a skilled specialist.

Best Face Forward: To achieve Amy Adams’ natural-looking and a furrow-less face, a great skincare regimen and a conservative amount Botox or Dysport would be a great option. Botox and Dysport help reduce the appearance of “dynamic lines” caused by facial movements.

Lips: To achieve Julia Roberts’ winning smile, Dr. Nassif recommends Juvederm for adding fullness to the lips. It is very soft, and yields a great looking and natural result.

Skin: For Jennifer Lawrence's healthy, fresh-face glow, a hydrafacial is a great treatment. It provides cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration all while infusing antioxidants and hyaluronic acid.

Remember: board certification matters! As always, RealSelf recommends ensuring that your doctor or dermatologist is properly certified to administer the procedure that you are seeking.
