Consider the Golden Globes as the ultimate belated holiday gift for the beauty enthusiast. (It's never too late for some inspiration, if you ask us.) Always the first major award show of the year, it promises hair and makeup looks that often won't be topped for another 12 months. Celebrities often let their glam squads take the lead on their most creative, bold, and clever ideas of the year. May we remind you of Lady Gaga's cerulean blue hair and Cody Fern's smoky eyes from the 2019 Golden Globes. We're still not over those looks.
For 2020, we could all but guarantee that nominees for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture categories like Charlize Theron, Awkwafina, and Saoirse Ronan to bring their beauty A-game. We can also expect to be wowed by Jennifer Lopez, Margot Robbie, Billy Porter, and countless more.
We rounded up the hairstyles that knocked us off our feet and the makeup looks that we'll be trying as soon as we have an opportunity to dress up — or maybe even to work tomorrow. Why wait, right?
We would like to draw attention to Cynthia Erivo's ear party if it hasn't caught your eye already. The silver earrings with her silver buzz cut is genius. Although her lids seems to pick up the metallic tones of her jewelry and hair, makeup artist Terrell Mullin actually used a couple of brown hues from Giorgio Armani's Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow line to give the actress a deep smoky eye.
Instead of going for a sharp-as-knives cat eye, makeup artist Lisa Aharon opted for diffused wings for Rachel Brosnahan's red carpet look. After etching on flicks with a combination of the Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist in Tea House and Nippon Noir to create a soft brown-black hue, she blended them outward with the brand's Naname Fude Multi Eyebrush.
Rose gold looked as timeless as ever on Little Women's Saoirse Ronan. Makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua added the Chanel Ombre Première Laque in Rising Run while hairstylist Adir Abegel give her golden hair extra shine with the new Virtue Healing Oil.
Priyanka Chopra's fitted pink gown and glittering statement jewels wouldn't have been complete without a matching set of retro waves from hairstylist Christian Wood. To give Chopra the glossiest base possible, he prepped her hair Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse. His waves are the work of a voluminous blowout and curls from flat-iron curls, but he tells ishonest they can be achieved on the fly with heated rollers blasted with and blowdryer. “Add a deep side part, brush out the curls and sweep over to one side, finishing with a good mist of Firm Control Finishing Hairspray and it will give you a similar feel and vibe," he says.
To ensure Kerry Washington's bob was as smooth and frizz-free as possible, hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew tasked a trio of John Paul Mitchell products: Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo, Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moisturizing Conditioner, and Tea Tree Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave-In Spray. She also flat ironed Washington's natural hair and flipped the ends under a bit to, literally, round out the scarlet lip look.
Before winning the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy, Awkwafina sat down with makeup artist Kirin Bhatty and hairstylist Marcus Francis for her Marlene Dietrich-esque look. Bhatty drew on cat eyes with the Lorac Front of the Line Pro Liquid Eyeliner and swiped on candy apple red lipstick (Lorac's PRO Satin Lip Color in Currant) while Francis tied up all of Awkwfina's hair except for one loose tendril.
Helen Mirren look luminous as ever with berry accents courtesy of makeup artist Jo Strettell. The new L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush in Peony was blended onto the apples of her cheeks.
Then, Mirren's lips were lined with the drugstore brand's Age Perfect Anti- Feathering Lip Liner in Rich Cranberry and topped with Age Perfect Luminous Hydrating Lipstick + Nourishing Serum in Perfect Burgundy.
These long and beachy waves on Salma Hayek might look effortless, but they're actually the careful handiwork of stylist Jennifer Yepez and Great Length Tape- In hair extensions. After blowing out Hayek's hair, she began taping extensions upward from the base of the neck. “I like to mix different lighter colors to make the hair have depth and look like natural highlights,” she says.
Billy Porter pared down his makeup for the 2020 Golden Globes to focus on his angelic feathered ensemble, which took three months to create. He kept the focus on his skin, highlighting it in all the right places with a reflective sheen.
Gugu Mbatha Raw
Gugu Mbatha Raw slipped on a chartreuse sequined Gucci gown for the occasion, so it was only right to go with a bold poppy red lipstick, too. Makeup artist Nick Barose reached for the Giorgio Armani Rouge D'Armani Matte Lipstick in 401. Hairstylist Matt Fugate also shaped the actress' curls into a faux bob for the night.
Luscious is the word that comes to mind when we look at Jason Momoa's waves. Whatever shampoo and conditioner that man uses are seriously working (and we need them, too). We're also assuming regular trims keeps his ends in tip-top shape, so excuse us while we make an appointment with our stylist.
Hairstylist Chris Appleton crafted an intricate braided bun of J. Lo proportions for Jennifer Lopez's 2020 Golden Globes look. The nominee in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture category also made sure to bronze up her face, as always, with the help of her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes.
For Lucy Boynton's first beauty moment of 2020, makeup artist Jo Baker went all out (as usual) with art deco-inspired bedazzled wings. She delicately glued on dozens of gems in all different shapes and sizes over a taupe base. Stylist Jenny Cho topped off the glitzy look with a crystal-adorned headband.
If you spotted Kirsten Dunst on the red carpet with her dreamy crimson lips and had to know what she used, don't worry, we got you. Makeup artist Mary Wiles first drew the Dior Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner 851 all over her lips as a base before painting on the Rouge Dior Ultra Care Liquid Lipstick in shade 999.
No one does a pixie cut quite like Zoe Kravitz. The close crop, which was styled by Nikki Nelms, looked incredible with her multidimensional red lips (a combo of YSL's Dessin Des Levres Lip Liner in Prune and the Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in Black Red Code and Red Tribe), bold brows, and twinkling rose lids finessed by makeup artist Nina Park.
The Princess Leia radiating from Rooney Mara's ornate, silver-threaded buns were on another level, and we couldn't stop staring. Makeup artist Kate Lee kept the actress' makeup minimalist to let her hair take center stage.
Just like the name of the movie that earned her a Golden Globes nomination, Margot Robbie looked like a Bombshell. To achieve her tousled waves, hairstylist Bryce Scarlett braided her hair in large sections before pressing them with a flat iron to create the S-shape of her soft waves. After he untied the braids, Scarlett misted on the Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray all over and ran his finger through her hair to distribute it and create the slept-in aesthetic.
Where should we start with Booksmart's Beanie Feldstein's gorgeous look? Perhaps her silk navy braided headband atop her soft waves done by stylist Peter Butler is best — or maybe her matching flicks and flushed cheeks from makeup artist Katey Denno. Either way, the whole look is absolutely fitting for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy nominee.
To kick off 2020, Dakota Fanning added a peachy pink tint to the ends of her signature blonde hair we've come to know and love over the past decade or so. The hint of color added a fun, dreamy touch to her blurred pink makeup.
Unbelievable's Kaitlyn Dever forwent her usual bright shadow in favor of a positively glowy, no-makeup makeup look. "This is Kaitlyn's first award show, so we wanted her to look like herself, with a really fresh face," makeup artist Gita Bass told ishonest. She, as well as hairstylist Bobby Eliot, luckily shared all the details on her look, so we can try it out for ourselves.
Pompadours in 2020 have a low-key, etheral feel, thanks to hairstylist Robert Vetica. He gave Cate Blanchett's hair at bit of volume in the front with some loose pieces and swept back the rest in a bun. Makeup artist Cedric Jolivet amped up it up with the Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Blush in #31 Coral on her cheeks and the brand's Lip Maestro in #500 Blush on her lips.
Cho Yeo Jeong
Parasite's Cho Yeo Jeong walked the red carpet for first time in the U.S. with a classic K-beauty look, complete with radiant skin, long lashes with a perfectly separated look, and a coral lip tint. All were paired with a sleek, low bun.
The retro-inspired hair flip is a major hair trend for 2020 — mark our words. Zoey Deutch provided exhibit A with the subtly upturned ends of her auburn bob styled by hairstylist Gregory Russell. The actress also tapped makeup artist Fiona Stiles for bushy brows, shimmery lids, and satin pink lips (specifically Chantecaille's Lipstick in Sweet Pea).
After her incredible performance in The Act, it's no wonder Joey King is nominated in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television category, and she has an equally jaw- dropping look to celebrate the occasion. Makeup artist Allan Avendano blended a range of silvery liners and shadows from Urban Decay all over her lids for a multidimensional smoky moment to contrast the rosiness on King's cheeks and lips. Stylist Dimitris Giannetos framed the look by sweeping back the actress' hair into a low ponytail.
