Now that we’re deep in the throes of award season (catch up on our favourite looks from the Golden Globes here), we can’t help but feel a renewed excitement for the creative, bold and exciting beauty looks set to come down the carpet. After the industry’s most powerful women reinforced necessary rhetoric about sexual harassment, assault and gender inequalities, the ways in which they choose to present their hair and makeup are especially fascinating.
Below find the most awe-inspiring beauty looks from the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.
Yara Shahidi showed up to the red carpet looking like a breath of fresh air—her incredible natural texture was on full display (celebrity hairstylist Nai’vasha Johnson used a quarter size of Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream (£7) to define curls and add shine), her skin was glowing and her lips were a glossy burgundy.
Millie Bobby Brown shook things up with slicked-back space buns and satin bows.
Tracee Ellis Ross looked fresh and sophisticated (as per usual) with bright eyes, lots of lashes and a matte red lip.
Saoirse Ronan’s cloudless, shockingly flawless skin leaves our jaws on the floor each time we see her walk a red carpet. This time, it was her piercing blue eyes and powder-purple shadow (it’s Chanel, says celeb makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua) that left us awestruck.
Halle Berry can do no wrong in our book. Whether it’s a pixie, natural curls or this high ponytail (with a shaved undercut), she’s iconic.
Alison Brie’s massive blue eyes are especially piercing on the SAG Awards red carpet, paired with just a touch of mascara, tightly lined eyeliner and Elizabeth Arden’s Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum (£56) beneath Flawless Finish Everyday Perfection Bouncy Makeup (£21), applied by celebrity makeup artist Quinn Murphy.
Danielle Brooks complemented her jewel-tone makeup with flapper-inspired, glossy finger waves.
Margot Robbie looks effortless every single time we see her. The reason? Her genes, of course, but also her Moroccanoil celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett. He used Moroccanoil’s Dry Texture Spray (£17).
Kristen Bell kept her makeup monochromatic with a pinched-pink lip, cheek and eye shadow. Her hair, a clean, elegant look (with Grace Kelly as the inspiration) was dreamed up by Suave Professionals celebrity stylist Jenny Cho.
Samira Wiley kept her lashes long and fluttery and her lips painted in a deep fuchsia.
Reese Witherspoon put her signature blonde curls (by her longtime hairstylist Lona Vigi) on display, only this time with a deep, polished side part.
Mandy Moore wore technicolour eye shadow and ’70s brushed-out curls by celebrity hairstylist Ashley Streicher.
Elisabeth Moss kept things simple and chic with clean skin, bright red lipstick and “barely there” waves (courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Tommy Buckett).
We could talk about Lupita Nyong’o’s glowing, flawless skin all night long. Here, with just a bit of iridescent eye shadow and expertly applied highlighter, the actress proved she can do no wrong.
Dakota Fanning’s high ballerina bun and ethereal makeup was simple—and incredible.
Celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman used a wax to create pliable hold and control for Sadie Sink’s romantic updo.
Celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass lined Laura Dern’s the top and bottom lash lines with a kohl eyeliner pencil in a dark navy shade and smoked it out with a soft brush.
Gina Rodriguez’s shiny lip gloss is a modern take on a nostalgic favourite.
Tresemmé celebrity stylist John D was inspired by a past Michelle Williams hairstyle for Greta Gerwig’s SAG Awards look. “We opted for a clean and chic smooth blowout,” he said.
Celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow created Taylor Schilling’s ’70s glamour eye—with silver, grey and black tones.
Nicole Kidman’s classic side bun, kohl-lined eyes and red lip are nothing short of iconic.
