At last night’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey had the best line of the night—and it was about beauty!
“Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher look took two hours to put on, including his hairstyling and makeup,” she said. “Just for comparison, it took me three hours today to prepare for my role as ‘human woman.’”
Ain’t that the truth?!

Here are the night’s most memorable hair and makeup looks on all your favourite celebrities.
Jessica Chastain at the 2015 Golden Globes
Let’s face it, Jessica was born for the red carpet. She always manages to nail the requisite high glamour, but somehow makes it feel fresh and exciting every time. I love the bright gold shadow at her inner corners, and the way the shaded part extends at the outer edges helps to give her face the illusion of more width. All super-pretty with her signature red hair.
Kerry Washington at the 2015 Golden Globes
If you feel like you’ve seen this look on Kerry before, well you have—at last year’s SAG Awards. The shimmery black liner and sheer pink lipstick give her a super-pretty vibe, and can we talk about how flawless her skin looks? The lashes are exaggerated, but I think they’re okay since everything else is low-key.
Diane Kruger at the 2015 Golden Globes
Diane looks perfect—is anyone the least bit surprised? I love that her makeup is super-subtle with shimmery taupe eyes, darkened brows, pretty pink gloss and most importantly, natural lashes. So much cooler, right? The Grace Kelly-esque hairdo elevates the whole thing.
Lupita Nyong’o at the 2015 Golden Globes
I’m loving Lupita’s new, fuller ‘fro. The makeup is a lot—bright purple sparkly eyeshadow high above the crease and under the eyes, plus fuchsia lip gloss—but if anyone can wear this combination, it’s her.
Emily Blunt at the 2015 Golden Globes
Emily looks good, although the heavy brown eyeshadow isn’t my favourite colour on her. (I feel like cooler tones suit her best.) I do like the coral lipstick and the simple updo, and her skin looks fantastic. The extra-long false lashes at the outer corners of her eyes seem to be weighing her down.
Katie Holmes at the 2015 Golden Globes
Rosamund Pike at the 2015 Golden Globes
I’m usually a fan of what Rosamund does on the red carpet, and this time is no exception. The bob is adorable on her (even if I’d prefer it was all one length), and the makeup is very “you, only better.” I love how sparkly her eyes look, as well as the softness of the lashes.
Emma Stone at the 2015 Golden Globes
Signature Emma style here. The lobbed hair is tousled and effortless, while her eyes and lips and enhanced with deep, vampy shades. The semi-matte lip stain in berry is so elegant, and the fact that the dark shadow just hovers at the crease saves things from going too heavy.
Kate Mara at the 2015 Golden Globes
Kate looks lovely here, much softer than she did as a blonde! This light brown colour is making her skin glow, and I think she’s one of those people who looks best in minimal makeup—just a swipe of bronzey shimmer under the eyes. This is also a great styling idea for shorter hair. A strong side part, little sweep over the forehead, and then tucked behind both ears and pinned. Cute!
Felicity Jones at the 2015 Golden Globes
This red carpet needed an English rose, and Felicity sure is delivering. I’m obsessed with this makeup job—easily one of the best of the night! The smoky eyes are perfect, and the lips and cheeks are like a ripe, juicy peach. Notice how she left her brows natural, not overly defined. I also love the curtain of hair across her forehead.
Keira Knightley at the 2015 Golden Globes
Nobody liked Keira’s maternity dress, but at least her makeup makes up for it. She’s absolutely glowing here, thanks to pregnancy hormones and well, her talented makeup artist. The smoky eyes and rosy blush are impeccably blended, with a pop of bolder berry on her lips.
Dakota Johnson at the 2015 Golden Globes
Dakota’s look is probably the closest to what I would do if my life suddenly changed and I had to walk the Globes red carpet myself. (One can dream, right?) Hair down, loosely tousled waves with separated bangs, and simple, natural makeup with balanced lips and eyes. It’s not trying too hard, and I love it.
Kate Hudson at the 2015 Golden Globes
So simple, yet just right for Kate. She’s the type who looks best with extremely minimal makeup, so I’m very much in approval of this bare-faced choice, with hair pulled back into a low bun. The only thing I’d change here are the brows. The colour is off and they should be ashier.
Anna Kendrick at the 2015 Golden Globes
Anna usually goes classic for red carpet, and this time looks very princess ballerina-like—a far cry from her Pitch Perfect style, no? In addition to her gorgeous skin, I especially like her stained-looking lips and rosy flushed cheeks.
Salma Hayek at the 2015 Golden Globes
Why oh why did Salma accessorize her white dress with white flowers in her hair? Sure, they are pretty, but they also make the whole thing look bridal instead of red carpet glam. Some kind of sparkly clip would’ve been more appropriate. Otherwise, this is stunning. How is this woman 48 years old?! I love her soft, side-parted waves and ultra-minimal makeup.
