Just when we finished perusing all the Golden Globes beauty looks, there's already another batch to delve into—from the Critics' Choice Awards, held on Thursday night.
Two red carpet events in one week; how lucky are we?!
This time around, celebs donned gowns of all colours (not just black), with a slightly more casual feel to the glam.
Here are the must-see hair and makeup close-ups:
I love Olivia's long, casual waves and natural makeup. After the matte trend, I'm ready for glossy lips like these, with a slight tint. The lashes lift her eyes without looking heavy. But I think she's back to injecting her upper lip again!
Kate's warm, red-toned lips, eyeshadow and blush are everything. This isn't the colour palette you'd expect on a blue-eyed blonde, but it works because of the sheer application, ballerina updo, full brows and natural lashes. Very "editorial"!
Kate is wearing: Serum • Moisturizer • Foundation in Bisque Medium • Concealer in Rendezvous • Concealer in Alive • Powder in Ivory Bisque • Setting spray • Illuminator in Spotlight • Bronzer in Tantric • Blush in Lines & Last Night • Eyeshadow in Scandalust • Eyeliner in Sunset • Mascara in Noir • Brow pencil in Taupe • Brow mascara in Invisible • Lip balm • Lip liner in Oh Cocoa • Lipstick in Rei of Light
Gal paired a rosy red lipstick and smudgy waterlines with clean, off-the-face hair. Her dress was so sparkly and low-cut, it wouldn't have looked as fresh and confident if she'd worn stronger makeup with it.

Jessica's smooth, vintage waves are glorious! Her colour is so pretty, too. I also like the matching pinky-red stains on her lips and cheeks. However, her skin looks a little dry.
Angelina's strawberry-red lipstick is divine. We rarely see her in a bright colour, and it's so pretty! She paired it with her go-to liner and lashes for a feline effect. Somehow, the half-up hair doesn't look boring on her.
I like Margot's dramatic black cat eyes with the haphazard bun and long velvet ribbon in her hair. (Here it is from the side.) I'd much rather see a creative 'do like this than the "Hollywood" waves so many stars wear!
Emilia's mini beehive updo and bangs are very cute—and modern, thanks to the roughed-up texture. But I'm not loving the blonde, even though she wore it well at the Globes. Without the bright pink makeup to distract us, you can see how much it's washing her out.

Alison's soft lashes and coppery eyeshadow are gorgeous. (She has such amazing eyes, doesn't she?!) There's black along the upper lash lines and waterlines for extra pop. But I don't love such solid brows, and would rather see fine strokes with a pencil (and the hairs coated in brow mascara). Also, I think she suits long hair better than this shag cut.
Reese looks great in this casual, textured hair. I also like the bright pink lipstick (applied more like a stain) and matching blush. There's a lot happening on the eyes, but I think it's basically working.
Reese is wearing: Serum • Moisturizer • Foundation in Beige • Concealer • Bronzer • Blush in Pink • Blush in Sunblush • Powder in Translucent • Eyeshadow in Bronzed to Be • Eyeshadow in Smoky Nights • Eyeshadow in Something Blue • Mascara in Intense Black • Brow pencil in Honey Blonde • Brow mascara in Blonde • Lip balm • Lipstick in Pretty Pink • Lipstick in Red Door Red • Body oil
Jessica went for a "glam Boho" vibe, to go with her dress. I love the voluminous waves, parted down the middle. I'm also obsessed with this shade of coral lipstick.
How cute is Diane's wavy, almost crimped-looking bob?! As always, I appreciate her approach to makeup (which she does herself). No false lashes or harsh lines here, just a subtly shaded, neutral eye. That being said, I think she could use a pop of colour (like this).
Elisabeth looks fresh and natural in sheer, candy-pink lipstick and soft lashes. Her brows are also good—I don't think they always have to be filled in. Hair-wise, I really think she'd look great as a light brunette. It always seems like her hair is either too dark, too red or (as we're seeing here) too blonde!
Elisabeth is wearing: Palette in Falling for You
Allison's lashes look super-delicate and pretty. As for the rest of the makeup, is the problem that she keeps choosing bad dresses—and then matching their colour palette? At the Globes, it was oranges; here, it's browns. Besides the colour scheme, I don't like the overdrawn brows, the headband or the powdery skin. (Although, to be clear, she does have very good skin.)
Allison is wearing: Moisturizer • Foundation • Bronzer • Blush in Fleur de Lotus • Highlighter • Eyeshadow in Visone (up to crease) • Eyeshadow in Codes Elegants (all over lid) • Mascara in Noir • Brow pencil • Lip liner in Beige Innocent • Lip gloss in Icing
I like Sarah's sleek updo. We usually see her in a trendy shattered bob and Ombré, so it's nice to go more classic for once. But obviously, this is way too much makeup! There's so much foundation, it's actually cracking in her laugh lines. If we removed half her base, and the overdrawn lips and brows, the eyes would be semi-okay.
Sarah is wearing: Primer • Blush in Flesh & Fantasy • Bronzer in Tantric • Highlighter in Dew You? • Eyeshadow palette in Glambition (She Was on lid and brow bone; Infamous above crease; Seeking in crease; Known For at inner corners) • Eyeliner in Blacquer • Lip crayon in How Rouge!
Heidi is a beautiful woman who is stuck in a rut of goopy light lip gloss, white eyeliner, bottom false lashes and droopy, piecey Ombré waves. I'd love to see her chop her hair off, but even something closer to this would be an improvement.
Oh man, Emma's bangs! They're bad, really bad, but fortunately (hopefully!) just a wig. This is what everyone is afraid of when deciding whether to get a fringe! On the plus side, I do like her brick-toned lipstick and spidery lashes.
