The 74th annual Golden Globes took place last night, and during the arrivals the red carpet was inundated with some of the best beauty looks we've seen. As stars gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, we saw how our favorite leading ladies turned heads on the red carpet.
From working old Hollywood glamour to finding fresh takes on minimal beauty to surprising with bolder appearances of unexpected color (the red carpet saw unprecedented amounts of pink eye shadow), stars hit on a wide array of beauty looks at this year's Golden Globes. Hair was worn either tousled or sleek, and ponytails and asymmetrical 'dos were the reigning favorites this year. From Emily Ratajkowski's shocking lob to Sarah Jessica Parker's channeling of Princess Leia, we've rounded up our favorite beauty looks from the evening.
See below for the best beauty looks from the Golden Globes red carpet.
Ratajkowski sneakily teased a dramatic new hair length. It turns out the look isn't permanent, but the wavy bob nonetheless made an impact on the red carpet. (Find out how you can fake a shorter haircut, too.)
While it may look like Washington got highlights for the event, hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew actually used blond and brown clip-ins after using Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask ($7) to condition the star's natural tresses. A dark moody lip finished off the look, achieved by makeup artist Carola Gonzalez by layering Dolce & Gabbana Glam 355 lipstick and Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Deep Plum ($9).
It wasn't lost on us that Portman's regal half-updo evoked Jackie O, and her bright pink lipstick and luminous skin kept the look playful and fresh. Dior makeup artist Pati Dubroff used the brand's Rouge Dior Lipstick ($35) in Opéra, followed by Rouge Contour Lipliner ($31) in New World Matte. "This combination of color made a beautiful, custom pink with a touch of coral," she says.
Witherspoon worked a look of laid-back glamour with side-swept bangs and the rest of her hair pulled back—as not to compete with her smoky eye, of course. Stylist Adir Abergel prepped the actress's locks with Virtue's Uplifted Volumizing Whip ($36), gave it a rough dry with the new Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($399), and added extra volume with volumizing spray before pulling it all back into a chignon.
Hairstylist Lacy Redway created Newton's sleek ponytail with a bit of height at the top to showcase her off-the-shoulder dress and long jeweled necklace that extended down the back like a halo around the hair. Because of the Westworld star's naturally curly tresses, Redway used Fekkai Full Blown Volume Lightweight Styling Whip ($20) to fill in cuticles and provide extra hold. Redway touched up the ends of the hair with Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Crème ($20).
After prepping pre-show with a lip mask, Stone stepped out onto the red carpet with a plump pink pout with a coordinating flush of rosiness on her eyelids and the apples of her cheeks.
Makeup artist Melissa Hernandez played off Steinfeld's dress with a matching lilac smoky eye; she used Giorgio Armani's Eye Tint ($39) in #8, 10, and 12 for an old Hollywood look with a modern twist.
Returning from last year's Golden Globe win, Larson kept her beauty look classic with pristine waves and a bold red lip.
Makeup artist Stephanie Barnes created Chopra's custom dark red lip by mixing Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour ($28) in An Affair and Seduction.
Makeup artist, Jen Streicher kept Moore's overall look clean so as to play up her eyes. For a fresh face, Streicher applied Caudalie's Beauty Elixir ($18) onto the beauty blender she used to apply foundation, as it “leaves the skin with a beautiful dewy look." As for Moore's eye makeup, Streicher played with color—copper above the eyes and blue below—for a "subtle but sexy" look. She layered a variety of rich warm hues, applying Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color ($34) in copper and following with Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour ($25) in Terracotta. The dark indigo lining Moore's bottom lash line is from Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays ($48).
Williams took a minimalist approach to her beauty look, keeping her platinum bob sleek and off her fresh face.
Even a towering updo accessorized with tiny beads couldn't take the attention away from Monáe's glow.
This look was about full-blown volume, as Bell's amped up her platinum lob. As for her makeup, a smoky eye heated things up even more.
Keough's screen siren beauty look was created by makeup artist Beau Nelson using Chanel.
The supermodel went with purple makeup tones that echoed her dress.
Collins opted for an intricate updo complete with pinned curls and wrapped braids. Her makeup was equally adventurous, pairing a bold red lip with pink eye shadow.
Makeup artist Kate Lee created Miller's fresh, feminine look using Chanel products.
Chastain seriously showcased her ivory skin, tightly slicking back her red locks and keeping her rosy makeup minimal with the exception of black mascara. As for her signature copper locks, hairstylist Renato Campora used Moroccanoil products to slick Chastain's hair back into a braided chignon.
The Westworld star topped off her fashion-forward suiting with a bleached coif and slicked-back roots.
Harris delivered a fresh take on Hollywood glamour with an updated pale pink lip to accompany her smoky eye and structured waves.
Hairstylist Kylee Heath wanted to play off the ethereal rock-and-roll vibe of Kidman's dress when creating this romantic half-up half-down look. Heath gave the pulled back style texture by alternating between 1 and 1.25 inch curling irons. She then finished off Kidman’s look with a spritz of Leonor Greyl Laque Souple ($36) for a smooth finish.
Were the actress's Heidi braids and all-white ensemble perhaps in homage to our dearly departed Princess Leia? As for her smoky eye, makeup artist Leslie Lopez used a series of Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick Eye Colours ($29) to craft the contoured look.
Hair stylist, Paul Norton's inspiration for Rodriguez's look was the cabaret. Norton created the Jane the Virgin stars' retro bob, by styling her ombre colored locks in s-shape curls. He then modernized the look with Joico's Hair Shake ($18) applied just at the ends for messier finish.
Tran's topknot was red carpet–ready thanks to some polished styling.
Culpo took the pink eye shadow trend to the next level with a bold smoky effect that was just as eye-catching as her intricately braided updo.
The actress kept her look simple and oh so pretty. Hairstylist Laini Reeves, round brushed Adam’s amber locks close to the roots for a polished looking middle part. She further used a flat iron and cream based styling products to create shine and softness. Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto says it all came down to the way he prepped Adams's porcelain complexion—Chantecaille's Rose de Mai Face Oil ($185) is the "magic product."
Vergara swept back her long locks into a high ponytail and opted for her bronze makeup look.
Inspired by "classic, effortless beauties from the '60s like Jane Birkin and Sharon Tate," hairstylist Cervando created Jones's bold bangs look—elegant with a retro twist—adding mystery to her half-hidden smoky eye. He achieved the look by applying Matrix Style Link Mineral Airy Builder Dry Texture Foam ($18) to damp hair and brushing through from mid-lengths to ends before beginning the blowout. After blowing out her hair, Cervando pulled it back into a loose chignon, leaving height at the crown and setting the look with Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray ($18).
The Night Of star opted for a charcoal eye and a classic updo.
Teigen's berry pout made a statement with her otherwise subdued makeup and slicked-back hair.
Biel found beauty in simplicity with a sleek side part and subtle makeup—with the exception of bold mascara, that is.
Kendrick's fuchsia lip made for an especially bold pop of color juxtaposed against her all-gray ensemble.
