Even the most beautiful of outfits go to waste if they don’t have the perfect beauty look to match.
Celebrities put just as much thought into their make-up as they do their fashion choices, and this year’s Golden Globes ceremony didn’t disappoint.
Drama and glamour were high on the agenda on the red carpet, and here are some of the boldest looks from Sunday night’s ceremony…
Saoirse Ronan in metallics
With a sexy Celine sparkly gown and her hair loose, Saoirse Ronan’s beauty look was a continuation of this relaxed glamour. Make-up artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua didn’t overdo it with glitter, but instead created a subtle bronze metallic look for a particularly effortless vibe.
This is definitely one of the more achievable beauty looks on the red carpet, and if you want to copy Ronan take a look at the products Bua uses here, or just keep it simple with the Chanel Ombre Première Laque liquid eyeshadow in Rising Sun.
Cynthia Erivo’s lashes
Old Hollywood glamour was a recurring theme on the red carpet, and Cynthia Erivo really leaned into it with a sparkly monochrome Thom Browne dress and major jewels. Her beauty look kept to the theme, with a subtle smoky eye topped off with extra-long, luscious eyelashes.
Margot Robbie’s subtle purple eyes
Many of us are scared of playing with colour in our make-up, but on Sunday night Margot Robbie showed how this can be done easily and effectively. Make-up artist Pati Dubroff used a simple lilac slick of eyeliner along Robbie’s top lip, a colour pulled out from the beading on the dress. An extra shimmer of silver along the purple line made this look red carpet ready.
Priyanka Chopra’s berry lips
Priyanka Chopra set off her pale pink Cristina Ottaviano gown with a seriously major lip. Instead of matching her make-up to her dress, Chopra’s make-up artist Mary Phillips went for a deep berry colour to really make her stand out.
Phillips posted all the details of the look on her Instagram stories, so if you want to recreate Chopra’s Old Hollywood glamour look, you’ll need Pat McGrath Labs products: the Permagel Ultra lip pencil in Major Red and MatteTrance Lipstick in three shades: Vendetta, Elson 2 and Obsessed, putting the last one in the centre for an ombre effect. Chopra’s lips were topped off with extra-long eyelashes and perfect curls for a classic look.
Lucy Boynton’s graphic eyes
Lucy Boynton consistently makes the most interesting beauty choices on the red carpet, with the help of her make-up artist Jo Baker. Boynton matched her eye make-up to her silver Louis Vuitton dress, leaning further into the space-age vibe with a graphic design.
Baker says on Instagram she was inspired by Art Deco styles, and using Chanel make-up she created a sharp silver point over Boynton’s eye in a look the make-up artist describes as ‘Galactic Deco Doll’.
Beanie Feldstein’s perfect cat-eye
Cat eyes are basically the holy grail of make-up looks – everyone knows how to do it, but they’re impossible to perfect. Luckily, Beanie Feldstein had a team of make-up artists to help her nail the look, creating the ideal flick and a thick line of eyeliner. Cat eyes can often overwhelm a look, so the rest of Feldstein’s face was kept natural.
Ansel Elgort’s touch of shimmer
Beauty is stereotypically seen to be restricted to women, but there are an increasing number of men who are getting in on the fun. Ansel Elgort dabbed a bit of shimmer into the corners of his eyes for the red carpet – a simple move which immediately elevated his classic tuxedo to something more special.
