The Beauty Looks That Slayed the 2020 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Welcome to award season 2020. It's time to wake from our winter slumber, and there's no better way to do it than with the excitement of the first award show of the New Year, the 77th Golden Globes.

Not only does this glamorous evening mark the first gathering of the Hollywood elite to celebrate the phenomenal TV and movie offerings from the past year, but it's also a fresh opportunity for the stars to set the tone for the red carpet season ahead (and collect their first round of statuettes, of course)—no pressure or anything.

It should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that our faves showed up with some incredible beauty looks for the affair. From stunning makeup to swoon-worthy hairstyles, everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Cynthia Erivo, Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, and so many more of the best actors in the game gave us all the beauty inspo we'll need for a fierce 2020. Check out our favourite looks, ahead.

Colman is giving us fresh skin and feathered brows—a winning combo in our book. We're also living for her cropped haircut, which is so timeless and elegant.

Shimmering, silver shadow seems to be a trend tonight, and we're so here for it.

Whoever said orangey-red lipstick was only appropriate during the summer clearly never saw this shade on Mbatha-Raw.

Margot Robbie

Beachy waves are clearly Robbie's best friend, but that subtle lilac hue on her eyelid is something new. We're into it.

This slick, deep side part is so simple yet so sophisticated.

It's no secret that we love a bob, and this old-school waved look is a gorgeous style on such a short cut.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Yes to everything happening here, but especially the shimmery gunmetal hue swept across Washington's lids. 

Charlize Theron

It looks like Theron cropped the dark bowl cut she had earlier this year back to her signature blonde pixie cut. She really is a hair chameleon.

Zoë Kravitz

Kravitz also brought a pixie cut to the party. The more, the merrier.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Paltrow was all about showing a little skin on the carpet, and the theme extended to her super-soft glam. She's proof that a strip of lashes and an impeccable skincare routine can really take you places.

Lucy Boynton

Lucy Boynton is no stranger to pushing the envelope with her edgy eye makeup, and tonight was no different. Kudos to the actress for really going for it, even when everyone else is keeping it low-key.
