The SAG Awards 2019: The 20 Best Beauty Looks We Saw on the Red Carpet

In addition to helping us forget about the inevitable Sunday Scaries, award season gets our appreciation for the countless jaw-dropping beauty looks we see on the red carpet. Sure, "Who are you wearing?" might be the most common question asked of celebrities as they make their way over the ruby red stretch, but we're just as curious (and perhaps a little obsessed with) what and who they're wearing on their lids, cheeks, and lips—not just their necks, bodies, and feet. Who did their hair? What's her exact lip color? How on earth did that glitter stay in place? We want to know everything.

These days, a celebrity's red carpet beauty vibe is just as pivotal to a designer ensemble as their jewelry or dress, so we're dedicating one story to the best-of-the-best beauty moments to grace the 2019 SAG Awards red carpet. Plus, since we get the inside scoop from all of the beauty brands, hairstylists, and makeup artists behind said looks firsthand, we can easily answer every burning question about makeup, hair, even a celebrity's magical midwinter (and somehow totally believable) tan. Ahead, the 20 best beauty looks we spotted on the red carpet of this year's SAG Awards. Keep scrolling—your beauty rut doesn't want you to miss this.

Actress Lucy Boynton makes a moment out of a demure half ponytail (with a chic black ribbon, obviously) and head-turning liner placement. Plus, if you're like us, you'll be getting your hands on a tube of Victoria's Secret Major Lashes Full Volume Mascara ($14) ASAP. It's the exact formula makeup artist Jo Baker used on the actress.

We always anxiously Amy Adams's red carpet arrival. Here, she keeps the focus on her face (dramatic lashes and a flash of liner) with her romantic updo.

Actress Sofia Hublitz's bold red lip and warm, sunset-washed lids are a bold departure from her character on Ozark. And frankly, we're obsessed.

Sandra Oh may be nominated for her starring role in Killing Eve, but we'd say she's doing a pretty great job of killing her hair game too. Her pretty twirled bangs offer the perfect face-frame.

"I worked my STARRING Shooting Star Texture Meringue ($52) into Sandra’s dry hair and gave it a light blow dry to prep it for curling with an iron," explains celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson. "I used a larger barrel iron to then define her naturally curly texture."

Lady Gaga adorns her metallic-set eyelids with eye-brow grazing lashes, slicked platinum strands, and the most delicious of wine-stained lips. 

For her eyes, makeup artist Sarah Tanno used Marc Jacob Beauty's Eye-Conic Frost Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49) (shades Eleganza and Hey Girl Hey) and a vampy combination of the brand's Poutliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil in Currant Mood ($24), Le Marc Lip Crème Lipsticks in both Blow ($30) and Dashing ($30).

Almost gothic in inspiration, Alison Brie's stark center part is a bold accent to her ink-rimmed eyes, long lashes, and a perfectly chosen peachy-nude pout.

Sophia Bush typically wears her hair down or slicked back in a pin-tight bun or pony, so this pillowy updo (secured with a super-chic velvet headband, no less), is making our world go 'round. Her peach eye shadow and the bold liner along her lower lashline only add fuel to the fire.

Actress Yara Shahidi never leaves us disappointed, and as soon as we saw her exit the limo with that Fendi dress, we knew she'd have an A+ beauty aesthetic to match. And yes, it literally did match. You either loathe it or love it, but we happen to love a major pink makeup moment.

To accent the gorgeous and romantic draping of her dress, actress Laverne Cox kept her honey-hued highlights swept off her shoulders in braids and curls for a classic hair aesthetic.

It may be subtle, but if you look closely you'll see the rose gold shimmer of shadow beneath and atop Emma Stone's upper and lower lashlines. A complementary shade of scarlet lipstick (it's Sisley Paris Le Phyto-Rouge Lipstick in Orange Sevilla $57!) keeps the impact grounded in addition to her signature red strands. We're officially entranced. 

To achieve her simple but beautiful updo, hairstylist Mara Roszak worked Suave's Firm Control Boosting Mousse ($3) through the actress's damp hair before blowing it out and using velcro rollers to add extra volume.

Mandy Moore's cheekbones and pristine blush application look almost airbrushed, no? A satin, pretty pink pout and the smokiest of smoky eyes also caught our attention on the red carpet. Of course, it's also worth taking notes on her ultra-sleek strands, courtesy of both T3's SinglePass Luxe Flat Iron ($180) and a cult-classic—Tangle Teezer's Ultimate Detangler ($14).

We may have lost our breath when we saw Susan Kelechi Watson's silhouette draped in bright yellow on the red carpet, but we may have actually fainted when we saw her green- and turquoise-adorned lid. We're all for big beauty risks on the red carpet, and here, the actress executes with a perfect 10.

We don't see Elisabeth Moss take huge beauty risks often, but we're giving the actress major snaps for this teal liner look that offsets her buttery blond hair color with well-played drama. Looking to emulate her amazingly shiny strands? Hairstylist Sunnie Brooke used Biolage All-in-One Coconut Infusion Multi-Benefit Spray ($20) to achieve top-notch luster.

You know a beauty look is amazing when you're not distracted by sparkling emerald earrings. Case in point: Samira Wiley. Not only do we want those lashes for our own selfish purposes next Friday night, but we also want to emulate the actress's stealthy dash of smoldering liner—with a hint of glitter—underneath said lashes.

Ahhh, Margot Robbie. When it comes to flawless skin that looks like it's been touched by an angel, (oh, and always a shimmering lid), the actress just can't be beaten.

Lupita Nyong'o, where do we even start? The actress's patent red lip? Bead-studded braids? Rose-hued sparkling liner? Slow. Clap

We're not sure what we're more obsessed with—Gemma Chan's perfect contour and highlight or her pretty swept-back bun. (Psst, Dove's beloved Care Between Washes Invisible Dry Shampoo $7 was a key styling player here!)

To achieve Chan's gleaming radiance, celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder took inspiration from Audrey Hepburn and deposited Sulwhasoo's Multi Cushion Highlighter ($40) to the actress's sky-high cheekbones.

Sorry, but we can't resist. Emily Blunt's swipe of bubble-gum pink lipstick is practically perfect in every way. As are her slick, center-parted strands. To achieve the look, hairstylist Laini Reeves used Dyson's Supersonic Hair Dryer Professional Edition on Blunt's damp strands and ultimately finished off the style with gloss and hold thanks to Joico's JoiShape Shaping & Finishing Spray ($17).

Danai Gurira exemplifies shining minimalism at its finest. Since her Ralph & Russo dress (and all those chest-hugging feathers!) rightly took center stage, the actress kept it simple but superb with a glossy nude lip, coats, and coats of mascara, and the most perfect of arches.

Oh, and to keep her strands locked in place, hairstylist Larry Sims used Biolage Curl Defining Styling Butter ($20).

Sydelle Noel's burgundy lids, glowing skin, and goddess-like hair made our mouth drops instantly.
