Beauty Looks from The 2020 Critics' Choice Awards

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Unlike legacy awards shows (like the Academy Awards) that have been around since the 1920's, the Critics' Choice Awards joined the awards lineup in 1996. Since its inception, the CCA's have used a voting system among the Broadcast Film Critics Association "to honor the finest in cinematic achievement"—which means you'll be seeing your favorite small and big screen stars taking the red carpet tonight. It also means we'll be seeing some beauty looks for the books from the likes of nominees like Zendaya and Lupita Nyong'o. (Plus, some Academy Awards foreshadowing, since the Critics' Choice Awards winners have historically aligned closely with Oscar winners.) But regardless of whether or not these stars take home a statue tonight, their beauty looks are award-winners in our eyes. Ahead, our favorite beauty looks from the 2020 Critics' Choice Awards.

Red lips are a popular choice tonight, and we love the way Awkwafina's makeup artist Kirin Bhatty paired her red-orange take on the look with gold eyeshadow and simple black eyeliner. Meanwhile, her hair stylist Marcus Francis used Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse ($3), ghd's Helios Hairdryer ($249) and Soft Curve Curl Iron ($200) to creates soft waves—locking in the look with Suave Professionals Flexible Control Hairspray ($5).
