Did the Country Music Awards officially outdo itself this year? Considering that the evening involved a performance from Beyoncé (she took to the stage to sing her twangy "Daddy Lessons") as well as a rare appearance from Taylor Swift, we'll go ahead and say yes. And that's not even to mention the red carpet, which boasted quite the array of gorgeous beauty looks—all relatively lower-key than we're used to from the CMAs but nonetheless gorgeous: Think lots of tousled locks, lived-in hair color, and gold-tinged makeup.
So who put their best faces forward? Keep scrolling to see some our very favorite looks of the night.

For her headlining performance at the ceremony, Bey went with sleek hair and a shimmering neutral makeup look. (Get her golden glow with RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer, $38.)
The singer kept it classic (but gorgeous) with a smoky eye and slightly tousled locks.
Musgraves's dramatic lip perfectly complemented her slick raven hair. Keep your own mane flyaway-free with Rahua Finishing Treatment ($45).
Consider this your proof that going minimal can still turn heads.
Is there ever an occasion when Kidman's porcelain complexion doesn't look positively luminous?
We missed you, T.Swift! The singer made a rare appearance as a presenter and looked stunning with her new-ish shag cut (and signature red lip).
