Actresses Showed Their Solidarity at the Golden Globes With Their Makeup Too

Updated 04/14/19

As entertainment's biggest names gather for the Golden Globes, the collective conversation reflects a dramatic (and hopeful) shift in the industry. Just days ago, many of the most powerful women in entertainment unveiled Time's Up, a new legal defense fund targeting sexual harassment, assault, and gender inequalities in the workplace. It's a powerful rebuke in the wake of ongoing allegations and reports of sexual abuse in Hollywood—not to mention a notorious pay gap—and tonight, the vast majority of the Globes' attendees are wearing black in solidarity.

But while we expected to see many a black gown this evening, we've also noticed that many of the actresses on the red carpet also opted for black eye makeup as well.

From her turban to her kohl-lined eyes, Tracee Ellis Ross might be our beauty MVP of this year's red carpet.

While her red lip (and emerald earrings) both provide a pop of color, Zoë Kravitz also opted for a cat eye in classic black.

Angelina Jolie went with a similarly mod look.

Of course, the point was to open up a conversation about what this show of solidarity represented, and that it did: The red carpet was dominated by talk of making real progress toward equality, and it's a theme that continues to pervade the ceremony.
