The Beauty Looks That Slayed the 2020 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Courtney Higgs

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.

This metallic smoky eye is the perfect look to kick off red carpet season.

This pink-stained monochrome is a vibe.

That sleek middle part and bubblegum-pink lip are the perfect additions to an otherwise subdued look.

Fanning is giving us angel-on-earth vibes with her signature soft glam.

A bold red lip is always a good idea.

Soft waves and a bold lip capture Old Hollywood glam at its finest.

Yes, lashes! Yes, silver natural! Yes, smoldering stare!

Blue eyeliner will be a staple in our 2020 makeup repertoire. 

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.

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.

Aniston is proof that you don't have to do the most on the red carpet to totally shut it down.

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

We're loving the rock-and-roll vibe of Waller-Bridge's cascading bouffant. 

This undone updo is effortlessly chic. And don't even get us started on that skin.

Offbeat red lips had a moment on the carpet too.

It looks like the guys got the silver eye shadow memo too. More men in makeup this award season, please.

Leave it to this Dame to remind the girls that a cranberry lip stain always adds a little something special.

She's beauty, and she's grace. That J.Lo glow was on level one million this evening.

This simple look is just angelic.

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

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.

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

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.

So here for the dull drama of Woodley's eye makeup.

Oh, and Taylor Swift was there.

Our 2020 mantra: shiny hair, full brows, can't lose.

Witherspoon showed us that a little bit of gel can take you from bob to boom, just like that.

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.

Here we have another case for updated Old Hollywood glam, and we think it's a great idea.

Another fresh face for the books. And that bold lip? Yes.

Up next, every striking look from the Golden Globes red carpet.
