The holiday season may be known as the most wonderful time of the year, but for beauty lovers everywhere (editors included!), award show season gives glittering lights and bouquets of mistletoe a run for their money. To kick it off, the 75th Golden Globes are taking place tonight, and the stunning lips, sleek strands, and radiant complexions that have danced in our heads for months have finally arrived on the red carpet.
As usual, all our favorite stars (of the big and small screens) have brought their A game. Keep reading to see each and every jaw-dropping look from the 2018 Golden Globes. (Your beauty fix awaits.)
A rich berry-hued lip complemented Alexis Bledel's blush-flushed cheeks and sleek, parted hairstyle. Bledel worked with celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell who used Giorgio Armani's Lip Magnet in Front Row ($38)
For maximum drama, Jamie Chung opted for a crisp center part, bold brows, and a gorgeous red lip. “For Jamie’s look we went with a punk rock, sleek and chic style and modern middle part. While the straight style is very classic, the middle part and hair behind the ears added a bit of a rock n’ roll edge," celebrity stylist Castillo Bataille explained. For gorgeously a sleek finish that stays put all night, he used OGX Extra Strength + Honey Hold Mega Glue ($7)
A nod to Old Hollywood glamour, triple threat Dove Cameron went with tousled waves, a touch of color on her lips, and a sultry, smoked-out eye. For the ultimate bend, celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan used the Ghd Curve Classic Curl Iron ($199).
All eyes were on Tracee Ellis Ross on the red carpet with her thickly lined eyes, orange-red lips, and showstopping turban.
Actress Allison Williams went for soft and subtle with a nude tone on her pout and a soft eye look to add a hint of depth and dimension. A soft updo kept the focus on her gorgeous bone structure. Celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan swept shade #2 from the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Warm Sunrise ($6) all over Allison’s lid for the base and then #3 from the lashline to crease.
Nominated for her leading role on the NBC hit show This Is Us, actress Mandy Moore commanded the red carpet with a matte red pout (the exact color is Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick in Walk of Fame $5) and a clean updo with a center part.
Madeline Brewer added a touch of edge to her classic waves with a demure red lip and glowing skin. (Plus, we can't get over those cascading waves.)
Actress Claire Foy let her bright blue eyes take center stage. A head-turning blue-red lip—Chantecaille's Lip Stick in Cerise ($38)—layers of mascara, and slicked-back hair accentuate her look. Chantecaille's Rose de Mai Face Oil ($185) was used to emphasize and prep her flawless complexion.
The model stayed true to her natural makeup M.O. with bronzed skin and a flattering nude lip.
Though Dakota Johnson's elegant makeup was somewhat tame (it was all about the lashes and that demure pink pucker), her face-framing fringe and an ultra-long ponytail added interest. For the perfect tail, celebrity hairstylist Johnnie Sapong used a large barrel curling iron for some added texture. Then, once her hair had cooled, a small amount of Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Crème Serum ($7) for separation.
Actress Alison Brie showed off an Audrey Hepburn–inspired look we couldn't take our eyes off of. “I started by misting Leonor Greyl's Spray Structure Naturelle ($42) over clean, damp hair,
then used Mason Pearson's Boar Bristle Brush ($120) to give Alison a simple blowout," explains celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler. "She has a perm for GLOW, plus lots of short, choppy layers at the moment, so we wanted to smooth things out as much as possible.”
Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski may be known for her chilling role as Serena Joy Waterford in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale (and her character's pristine low chignon and signature no-makeup makeup look), but here, she gave us a prominent departure with loose curls and a sweet rose-toned lip.
Actress Susan Kelechi Watson wowed with glowing skin, defined brows, and gorgeous natural texture. To re-create Kelechi's “bobfro”, celebrity hairstylist Vernon François prepped her scalp with his Scalp Nourish~Ment Braids and Loc Spray ($24) followed by the Leave~In Conditioner ($28) from
root to ends for extra hydration and protection.
We barely recognized 13 Reasons Why actress Katherine Langford, thanks to her super-smoky eyes, her contoured cheekbones, and her mermaid-esque waves. (And ICYMI, a sprinkling of sparkling stars also adorned the back of her hairstyle.)
For an iconic look, Jessica Biel wore a pop of light fuchsia on her lips, brown shadow, and an elegant, side-swept updo. For epic polish, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel used the Ghd Gold 18k Styler. (PSA: There are only six available in the country and the iron will be available for purchase February 1 for $199)
To finish off her allover glow, Celebrity Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimotobua used St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish ($18) and the brand's One Night Only Finishing Gloss ($25) for a touch of sun-kissed radiance.
Actress Sarah Paulson just might be one of our favorite hair chameleons (she always surprises us!). This year, she kept it simple with a chin-grazing cut and slight bends in her ombre strands.
Issa Rae never misses a beat when it comes to a gorgeous hair and makeup pairing. Her stunning updo and cool-toned eye shadow perfectly pair sultry and sophisticated. Plus, her allover glow can be attributed to Vaseline's Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Smoothing Body Butter ($17).
Leave it to Kendall Jenner to deliver a jaw-dropping beauty look on the Golden Globes red carpet. Between her plush nude lips and modern, tousled cut and style, we're 100% obsessed.
We love Michelle Williams for her consistent signature look: side-swept fringe, a radiant complexion, and a slight touch of pink-toned nude on her pout. (Plus, if she ever grows out that perfect pixie, we'll adamantly protest.)
Cue the applause: Big Little Lies actress Zoë Kravitz conquered the red carpet with none other than a head-turning red lip, sculpted cheekbones, and a soft flick of liner on the outer corners of her eyes. For her gorgeous lip look, makeup artist Nina Park went with YSL's Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color in Melon D'or ($37) for a luxe satin finish.
We were anxiously anticipating what kind of beauty look Gal Gadot would debut on the red carpet, and she did not disappoint. The highlights: a shiny, berry-stained pout, gorgeous arches, and lashes for days. For her timeless lip celebrity makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani used Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Bombshell Red ($5)
Have you noticed a trend yet? Jessica Chastain's brilliant red lips offset her glistening natural hair color, porcelain skin, and dramatic eyes. Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora dried the actress's hair using T3's new Cura Ionic Hair Dryer ($235) in addition to a round brush for smooth and silky shine. To finish, he misted Goldwell's StyleSign Perfect Hold Big Finish Volumizing Hair Spray ($23) to ensure lasting volume and body.
To upgrade her low bun with a punch of interest, actress Christina Hendricks tied the knot with a sleek black ribbon. To keep everything in place, opt for Nexxus' Comb Thru Natural Hold Design and Finishing Mist ($14).
For this year's 75th Golden Globes, Diane Kruger showed us her signature. (Aka lightly lined and shadowed eyes, a matte nude lip, and a touch of peach-toned blush.)
We're obsessed with Samira Wiley in the Handmaid's Tale and possibly even more obsessed with the whimsical look she brought to the table at this year's Golden Globes. Glossy plum-colored lips, coordinating hues on the lids, and lots and lots of volume struck a major high note.
Margot Robbie, the I, Tonya star is one of our all-time favorites when it comes to mesmerizing makeup looks. Case in point that magical, magenta pout. Plus, for hair that sparkles like Robbie's use Moroccanoil's Treatment Light ($34). (It's what her hairstylist Bryce Scarlett used on her damp hair pre-style!)
We love watching Millie Bobby Brown come into her own on the red carpet, and this time around, she wowed with some comparable edge. (As demonstrated by a dramatic cat eye— Avon's True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Blackest Black ($5)—and a tight, sky-high ballerina bun—anchored by braids running vertically in the back, of course.)
Though she shaved her head late last year, Kate Hudson's signature blonde locks are already making a comeback. To complement her newly cropped strands, the actress punctuated her look with a thin black headband. Demure.
It's official: Angelina Jolie is officially aging in reverse. Plus, with her fanned-out lashes, a healthy dose of jet-black liner, and a plump, glossy nude pout, we're getting glamorous, '60s-inspired vibes.
With slightly mauve lips, rose-toned cheeks, and a subtle touch of highlight along the bridge of her nose and cheekbones, Natalie Portman radiated that quintessential healthy glow. And since she's known for those gorgeous arches, makeup artist Melanie Inglessis kept them coiffed and full with Dior's All-in-Brow 3D Brow Contour Kit ($57).
To accentuate her fresh platinum blonde strands (and those jaw-dropping sapphires!) Saoirse Ronan wore a pretty flush of peach on both the apples of her cheeks and her pout. To finish: a dab of luminizer in the center of her face and along her Cupid's Bow.
Metallic eyes, dusty rose–toned lips, and a romantic updo equate to a triple-threat beauty look courtesy of Emma Stone inspired by the suffragettes.
Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell showed off her flawless complexion with a natural nude lip, poppy-tinted cheekbones, and smoldering eyes.
To offset her baby-pink lips, Penelope Cruz worked the red carpet with kohl-rimmed eyes (in a super-inky shade of black), defined brows, and tousled blowout for some added oomph.
Three words: Purple. Eye Shadow. We can't stop gazing at anything other than Kerry Washington's bright and bold eye look, but her deep side part and pretty bends and waves aren't anything short of spectacular either. (To get the look, reach for InStyler's Cerasilk Styling Iron $115.)
It's been awhile since we've seen Halle Berry on the award season red carpet, but true to her flawless form, she impressed with glowing skin, a minimal eye look, and layered, cheekbone-framing bangs. For a glowing complexion, makeup artist Jorge Monroy used Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation ($64) and then followed the application with the brand's Fluid Sheer ($62) for a touch of highlight.
Actress Salma Hayek always makes an impression on the red carpet. At this year's Golden Globes, she went with imperfectly perfect waves, flushed cheeks, and a striking cat eye.
Last Fall, Emilia Clarke delighted each and every GOT fan when she took her naturally brunette shade of hair to Khaleesi-level platinum. To show off her fresh, icy blonde tone, she wore a bold shade of magenta on her lips complemented by a wash of rosy pink on the cheeks.
Bring on the glow and gloss! Mariah Carey impressed on the red carpet with a shimmering frosted pucker (courtesy of Kristofer Buckle's Cashmere Slip Longwear Lipstick in Bardot $24) Rose-gold eyelids (his Premiere Palette Eye Shadow Palette ($29), bronzed skin, and lots of radiance completed her red carpet look.
Nominated for her leading role as Offred on Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, actress Elisabeth Moss stepped up to the plate with a subtle makeup look. Long, fluttery eyelashes complemented her pretty baby blues and her perfect nude lip offset her fair complexion. (Do like Moss's makeup artist and reach for Dior's Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm $34.)
For a striking pop of color, actress Chrissy Metz wore shades of plum and burgundy on both her lips and eyes. And let's not ignore her gorgeous strands: “For Chrissy’s look, I added waves using a 1- and 1/4-inch curling iron to encourage movement for a soft, romantic style. To finish, I misted Tresemmé's Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray Hold Level 2: Smooth ($14) all over to lock the look into place achieving style without stiffness," explains celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena.
America Ferrera capitalized on her phenomenal texture for a blowout with the perfect amount of body and movement. Applied to both lips and eyes, bright berry completed the actress's makeup. The exact shade: Avon's True Color Lipstick in Poppy Love ($8)
For a touch of ultimate sophistication (and a bit of elegance) Reese Witherspoon's signature blonde tresses offer a chic and subtle contrast to the shimmering shades of baby pink on her eyes and lips. To prep her skin for the big night, celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern used Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist ($19) and then accented the finished look with the brand's Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Sweet Pink ($27).
A bright lip, a dewy complexion, and sun-kissed tendrils kept Nicole Kidman's Golden Globes look fresh and glowy.
Actress Alicia Vikander is known for her less-is-more approach when it comes to beauty and this year's Golden Globes look exemplified that impeccably. We love how breathtaking her low chignon appears when paired with her trademark makeup aesthetic. For impeccable shine, try Sun Bum's Beach Formula 3-in-1 Leave In ($15). (It's what Vikander's hairstylist, Chris Naselli, used on her tresses!)
Glowing skin, russet hair, ultra-chic bangs… we're head over heels for Lily James' chic red carpet look. For her radiant glow, celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno prepped the actress's skin by pressing in five to six drops of Biossance's Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil ($72) to brighten and even out her tone and texture.
We saw numerous tributes to Old Hollywood glamour on the red carpet, but Shailene Woodley's iconic iteration may have been our favorite. The makeup was kept simple, and her Veronica Lake–esque waves felt modern thanks to her two-tone blonde hair color. For serious shine and hold, her hairstylist Marcus Francis applied R+Co's High Dive Moisture Shine Creme ($29) to the top and side sections before brushing through at the roots.
Between her gorgeous hair, shimmering plum eyelids, and glowing skin, we couldn't stop talking about Viola Davis' fiery makeup ensemble.
