There's no denying that solidarity was a massive theme at last night's Golden Globes awards, as Hollywood's biggest names all came dressed in black in support of the Time's Up campaign against harassment in the workplace. But when it comes to beauty, there was a whole spectrum of varying looks from peachy lipsticks to pillar box reds, softly smoky eyes to heavy kohl liner—we've collated the best looks here to flick through to your heart's content.

When it came to hair, however, there was one prevailing trend that we saw everywhere: side partings. But it wasn't just about a glamorous aesthetic. Nope, this kind of parting, especially when teamed with a little ear tuck, was the perfect choice for anyone wishing to show off a pair of killer earrings. Considering statement earrings are a pretty big trend off the red carpet too (i.e., they're something we can wear to the supermarket without getting stared at), it's an idea that we reckon we could all do with adopting.

Susan Kelechi Watson's hairstyle was more of a mid-to-side parting, but the ear tuck allowed her chunky stud earrings to be seen from under her amazing afro hair.

We'd forgotten how much we loved a blingy earring until we saw these ones on Jessica Chastain. She opted for soft tousled waves and a deep side part.
