To kick off award season, our favourite celebrities came together to mingle, drink, and celebrate the best in movie and television at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. In terms of beauty—as is the case with all award shows—there was a mix of classic (Kate Hudson’s pearly glow), glamorous (J. Lo being fabulous J.Lo), and unexpected (Lupita’s violet eye shadow…#slay). We got the lowdown on our favourite beauty looks from the glam squads themselves, so you can know exactly which lash-multiplying mascara was used on Dakota Johnson, or which facial spray gave Rosamund Pike her dewy glow. Keep clicking to see the best beauty looks from the 72nd Golden Globes!
We chatted with hairstylist Chris McMillan after he sent Aniston down the red carpet. “With the cut of her dress, we knew we had to do an updo—but originally, it was going to be a ponytail,” he tells us. “I just happened to push the hair up in a bun, and she really liked it. She was like, ‘Can we do this? Can we rock this?’ and I was like ‘Yes!’” He called the bun “Kate Moss-inspired” with a textured-yet-polished feel.
Makeup artist Brett Freedman added "touches of light" to the co-host's face by blending peach powder blush and bronzing powder. The result? A shimmery, ethereal beauty look.
Makeup artist Adam Breuchard gave Beckinsale a sultry, smoky eye with a nude lip using all Chantecaille products. Stunning!
The Gone Girl star glowed on the red carpet with candlelit skin—courtesy of an array of Sisley products, like the cult-favorite Floral Spray Mist ($100), and Make Up For Ever products, like the HD Pressed Powder ($22) (which makeup artist Melanie Inglessis says is "hands down, the best finishing powder I've ever used.") To finish off Pike's look with a full, fluttery fringe, Inglessis used Chanel’s Inimitable Mascara ($30) in Noir on her bottom lashes and Make Up For Ever's Aqua Smoky Lash ($23) in Extra Black on her top lashes.
Haristylist Tina Andersen chopped Pike’s hair into a sleek, assymetrical bob and Kylee Rae Heath used a flat iron for a super-straight finish.
Heidi Klum channeled Old Hollywood glamour with a glossy, cascading wave (courtesy of hairstylist Christian Wood) and clean, luminous makeup (the work of makeup artist Linda Hay).
Taylor Schilling showed up in an elegant low bun. Hairstylist Ryan Trygstad for Matrix created the classic red carpet look with help from plenty of volumizing and anti-humidity products, like Matrix's VolumeBloom Full-Lift Volumizer Spray ($16) and Styling Freeze Humidity-Resistant Hairspray ($16), to ensure the twisted chignon would hold up all night. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow for Nars used the brand’s Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25) in Red Square, a crisp, orange-red shade to complement the actress’s scarlet-colored gown.
Never one to disappoint on the red carpet, Lupita Nyong’o looked gorgeous in violet eye shadow and pink lipstick. Makeup artist Nick Barose called the colorful look “romantic with a little disco flair.” Hairstylist Ted Gibson created the '70s-inspired ‘do to match.
Kristen Wiig chose to go sleek and modern this year. Wella Professionals celebrity stylist ambassador Andy Lecompte styled Wiig with a slight wave in the front, keeping the rest of the hair smooth. Makeup artist Tracey Levy for Charlotte Tilbury kept the makeup fresh with shades of pink and rose gold.
For Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s look, hairstylist Bridget Bager for Matrix wanted to create texture and movement. “The gown is so beautiful and grand, so we decided to soften her hair to offset the seriousness of the dress,” Bager says. She applied Biolage's Thermal Active Setting Spray ($16) on Dewan-Tatum's dried strands to add body and volume, then wrapped sections of hair loosely around a medium barrel curling iron, letting the ends drop.
Sienna Miller looked stunning with a beachy, tousled bob (the handiwork of hairstylist Jenny Cho) and glowy makeup (courtesy of makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury).
Makeup artist Elaine Offers for L’Oréal Paris says the inspiration for Moore’s shimmering smoky eye came from the actress’s sparkling Givenchy gown. Offers used L’Oréal Paris’s Infallible 24H Eye Shadow ($8) in Silver Sky to add hints of shine to the eyes.
Viola Davis went classic with defined brows, mega lashes, and a statement lip. Makeup artist Autumn Moultrie gave Davis the bright red lip to match her gown.
Makeup artist Christian McCulloch calls Hudson the “ultimate golden California goddess” (we agree) and opted for varying shades of tan, bronze, and gold from Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup line to complement her stunning white Atelier Versace gown. Colorist Cassondra Kaeding added babylights to Hudson’s blond strands to further emphasize the sun-goddess effect, while ghd Brand Ambassador, David Babaii, created a modern day chignon using the ghd Eclipse Flat Iron ($245).
To offset Johnson's silver sequined Chanel gown, makeup artist Patti Dubroff decided to keep her face fresh, subtle, and polished. “We did flushed cheeks, bitten lips, and a subtle, defined eye in warm taupes and deep gray in the corner,” Dubroff says. For a rosy glow, she applied Chanel’s Le Blush Crème de Chanel Cream Blush ($38) in Revelation on the apples of her cheeks. Hairstylist Mark Townsend gave her a “sexy and bendy” look, using Dove’s Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray ($7) to add major volume at the roots, and R+Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo ($29) to get piecey texture.
Our favorite model/funny girl/imaginary best friend gave off major post-vacation glow on the red carpet, complete with a perfectly tousled ponytail. Hairstylist Giannandrea used Macadamia Professional’s Whipped Detailing Cream ($26) to create a beachy texture throughout her strands.
The Girls star went old Hollywood glamour with a rock ‘n roll edge, with a sultry smoky eye and retro waves. Makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato used St. Tropez’s One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion ($18) to give her a luminous, bronzy glow, and applied Giorgio Armani’s Eye Tints ($38) in #1 and #7 to create shimmery smoky eye.
Hairstylist Jonathan Colombini gave Prepon’s wavy strands a “feminine yet glam” feel using Joico products, like the Volumizing Finishing Hairspray ($17).
Thanks to an exaggerated, blended cat eye, Stone’s eyes looked bigger and prettier than ever. Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Chanel's Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner ($32) in Black Shimmer on her upper lid to create an angled, coquettish shape, and went over it with a navy eye shadow from Chanel's Quadra Eyeshadow Palette ($61) in Tissé Riviera. She used a shimmery silver shade from the same palette to line the inner half of the bottom lash line. For lips, Goodwin used Revlon's Ultra HD Lipstick ($9) in HD Iris.
Catherine Zeta-Jones proved she truly has discovered the fountain of youth, stepping out with a perfect complexion, glossy nude lip, and subtle purple-brown smoky eye framed by a full set of lush lashes, courtesy of makeup artist Scott Barnes. Barnes used Dior Airflash Spray Foundation ($62) in Medium Beige 300, which he buffed into skin using a duo fiber brush. After applying a rose-colored cream blush, he dusted his own champagne-toned shimmer powder to the high planes of the cheek bones for a radiant glow.
Inspired by the film La Dolce Vita, hairstylist Maranda Widland gave Zeta-Jones a sleek middle part with sexy tousled curls in the back. She used a volumizing mousse to prep strands and then spritzed on Bumble & Bumble's Thickening Hair Spray ($29) before blowing hair dry. Widland then curled the hair and set it with L’Oreal's Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray ($15), smoothing it to a finish with Kerastase Anti-Frizz Sheets.
Jessica Chastain's go-to hair guru Renato Campora gave her sculpted, cascading side waves that looked breathtaking and sultry paired with her smoldering smoky bronze eye makeup and plunging neck line.
Golden Globe winner for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, Amy Adams channeled Jessica Rabbit (only fitting with red locks like hers), with loose, romantic waves swept to the side for added impact. Hairstylist Laini Reeves achieved the look with Oribe's Volumista ($39) applied damp hair from roots to ends. After blowing hair dry, she used a two-inch curling iron and rollers to pin-curl hair up in four sections. She sprayed the style with Oribe's Shine Light Reflecting Spray ($39) and let it sit for 20 minutes before removing pins and rollers and brushing hair out to create the softness.
Best Actress nominee Emily Blunt went full Grecian goddess in a flowing white crisscrossed gown topped off with a stunning braided crown by hairstylist Laini Reeves, who partnered with Birchbox to create the look. Reeves used Malin+Goetz's Sage Styling Crème ($20) and Serge Normant's Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray ($25) to create a tousled texture. The goal? Twisted braids that looked soft and fresh, rather than too pristine. Makeup artist Jenn Streicher and eyebrow expert Kristie Streicher gave Blunt her sun-kissed ethereal skin and feathered brows, respectively.
Makeup artist Jenna Anton gave Golden Globes winner Gina Rodriguez a simple but glamorous look in the form of flawless-looking skin, which she prepped using L’Oréal Paris's Youth Code Pore Vanisher ($20), followed by L’Oréal Paris's Revitalift Miracle Blur ($20) for a smooth finish. She kept the rest of the look understated but flirty, with a nude lip, subtle cat-eye that started thin at the inner corner and gradually became a thicker, and a few individual lashes at the outer end of the eye to elongate lashes. To keep her face looking fresh throughout the night, Anton sprayed L’Oréal Paris's Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray ($17). Hair stylist Paul Norton used a curling iron post blowout to create full-bodied, glossy waves with a side part.
Thanks to her longtime makeup artist Carola Gonzalez, Kerry Washington put a pretty and polished face forward with flawless skin, rosy cheeks, and a soft pink lip that matched the bodice of her metallic gown. Drama came in the form of a sultry black smoky eye and flirty lashes.
Golden Globe nominee Naomi Watts looked the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour in a yellow Gucci dress and true red lip. Makeup artist Mary Wiles used L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Lip Colour ($13) in Red Infallible to complement Watts's bright dress, and placed an emphasis on gorgeous glowing skin and a subtly defined brow for definition. For Watts's candlelit glow, Wiles prepped skin with L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil ($21), and then used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($62) in shade three.
