This year’s Golden Globes may have retreated from the red carpet to the virtual space, but it didn’t stop celebrities from dazzling everyone and sharing tons of timeless style inspiration. While everyone’s talking about the best-dressed stars, our eyes were solely set on these three factors: hair, makeup and skincare.
We might not be holding trophies like the winners, but we feel equally victorious after adding more looks to our Hollywood beauty inspo collection. Here are our favorite beauty takeaways from this year’s Golden Globe attendees.
Go quirky a la Emma Corrin
We’re pretty sure we weren’t the only ones intrigued by Corrin’s teary clown-inspired makeup—after all, isn’t that the point of such a quirky look? We weren’t expecting any less from the actress who plays Princess Diana on “The Crown,” but she sure showed us how to make a beauty statement with a look focused on the eyes.Her look’s central detail is a playful 3D teardrop accent below her eye, which was drawn using a kohl liner and layered on metallic silver eyeshadow. Her eyes were also lined heavily with kohl liner and her lashes layered with three coats of mascara to achieve the heavy 17th century Pierrot clown look. It’s just the right amount of theatrical and dramatic, TBH.
Flaunt your baby hair a la Andra Day
One of our takeaways from Andra Day’s style-that-slays is that we should totally own our baby hairs. Instead of tucking them away, “The United States vs. Billie Holiday” singer-actress proudly displayed her thin, wispy strands, styling them as if framing her beautiful face. Pair this look with a bold red lip and lots of shimmery highlight and you’ve got an award-winning piece for the ‘gram.
Prep your skin a la Tina Fey
If you don’t think going Hollywood glam fits the online-only situation, you might want to aim for Tina Fey’s cool, almost-natural look.
Although she opted for a more relaxed look, the actress still managed to grab attention with her radiant aura in this year’s ceremony. The secret to Fey’s natural glow? An overnight resurfacing peel applied on the actress’ face the day before, said her makeup artist, to make way for exfoliated and revitalized skin. She then used serum to brighten and moisture lotion to hydrate Fey’s skin on the ceremony day, setting a dewy base for her makeup. After applying these products, Fey was treated to a gentle massage to boost collagen production as well.
Stay sleek a la Anya Taylor-Joy
“The Queen’s Gambit” heroine turned heads not only with her stunning Dior Haute Couture gown but also her classic and sophisticated hair and makeup combo. The actress played up her best features by letting her long hair, styled simply with a side part, cascade down her back. This close-to-natural hairstyle was complemented by a soft neutral lip color and neatly-trimmed eyebrows.
Experiment with colors a la Cynthia Erivo
Cynthia Erivo’s wild aesthetic for this year’s Golden Globes was such a mood. On days when you feel blah, take a risk with an electrifying purple eyeliner to make your eyes pop out like the “Harriet” star—and match the look with an equally flattering and bold outfit like her structured neon green gown for an even stronger appeal.
