Stars gathered Sunday night at the 22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards to celebrate the best filmmaking of 2016. Stepping out onto the red carpet in their evening best, our favorite leading ladies turned heads with stunning beauty looks that ranged from barely-there and natural to bold and statement-making. From Kerry Washington to Mandy Moore to Emma Stone, there was plenty to take note of in the realm of beauty inspiration—and needless to say, the roster of on-point looks made us mighty excited for 2017's rapidly-approaching awards show season.
See below for the best beauty looks at the 22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards.
Kerry Washington glowed with a fresh, natural makeup look.
Emma Stone kept it simple yet striking with sleek side-swept tresses and a bright red lip. The secret to her hair's glossy finish, according to stylist Mara Roszak? That would be prepping the actress' mane with L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum ($6), and finishing it off with the brand's Nutri-Gloss High Shine Glossing Mist ($6) after straightening.
Full waves and a fresh face were all the were required for Mandy Moore to make an impression. Makeup artist Jenn Streicher achieved Moore's natural-looking finish using Temptu's Perfect Canvas Airbrush 24-Hour Airbrush Foundation that isn't set to be released to the public until March 2017. Streicher used Temptu Blushing Coral Airbrush Blush ($30) to bring color to the apples of Moore's cheeks and Temptu Color True Lipstick ($24) in Tawny Spice for a natural pout.
Allison Williams chose a bold look that was retro to the right degree. Working in combination with the '70s vibe of her Balmain gown, hairstylist Rebekah Forecast used Fekkai Full Blown Volume Lightweight Styling Whip ($21) to create the actress's voluminous look. Forecast gave lustrous shine to the half-up, half-down look applying a dime-size of Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Crème ($12) all over and setting with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($13).
With brushed up brows and a bright red lip, Janelle Monae's playful beauty look was the perfect complement to her graphic dress.
Jessica Biel worked a boho vibe with tousled beachy waves, blunt bands, and barely-there makeup.
Hailee Steinfeld let her bold red lip take center stage, keeping the rest of her makeup minimal and long, straight hair swept back off her face.
Kate Beckinsale sported her signature voluminous ponytail accompanied by a smoky eye and a light pink pout.
Michelle Williams's smoky eye stood out in contrast to her platinum blond pixie.
Thick choppy bangs framed Bryce Dallas Howard's face.
In addition to nabbing the award for Best Actress (for her role in Jackie), the expectant actress certainly looked the part with sleek curls and a punchy red lip. Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett used ghd Classic Curl Iron ($199) in one-inch sections to create those retro-inspired coils, before brushing them out a bit for a more bohemian finish.
A sleek high pony was a modern touch to the rest of Emmy Rossum's timeless look.
A classic-meets-modern updo put Kidman's red lip on full display. After blow-drying the actress's mane to give it some lift at the roots, hairstylist Kylee Heath smoothed in MOP Molding Cream ($22) and pulled the hair back into a center-parted bun at the nape of her neck, securing it with bobby pins. Heath left the ends out to give the chignon that fanned-out look.
