2014 Golden Globe Awards Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close-ups!

The red carpet pics from tonight’s Golden Globe Awards are already streaming in, and I’m kinda getting butterflies. (Don’t judge.) Hair- and makeup-wise, I think this is turning out to be another winner of an awards show—and right after the excellent Elysium Heaven Gala, too. The stars have definitely brought their A-game so far in 2014!

Keep checking back as more photos are added, and then stay tuned for more detailed hair and makeup how-tos tomorrow.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I’m so predictable. As soon as I saw Emma, I knew she’d get the top spot here—is anyone surprised? I have no idea about her dress, but she is exquisite, as usual, from the shoulders up. Hair is in a deep side part and pinned in a low chignon at the back; she’s left just the right amount of wispy pieces out around the ears. It’s probably hard to see on your monitor, but she’s pulled one of my favourite bold makeup moves, a pink lip with a red dress. It will be Lancôme and I should have exact product names tomorrow. In the meantime, admire those brows! Update: I was wrong, she’s not not Lancôme! For the full list of the exact products her makeup artist Kate Lee used, plus how to copy her hairstyle, see my makeup and hair breakdown here.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Is it just me or is Olivia getting even more gorgeous these days? Must be the pregnancy glow. I especially like that her hair is getting longer again; it has some subtle Ombré colour and is worn here in loose waves, a perfect match for her body-hugging green dress. Olivia always looks incredible with a smoky eye and these were done by her longtime makeup artist, Melanie Inglessis, using the Revlon Photo Ready Primer, Shadow + Sparkle palette in Muse (limited edition, but still available here and here). Would you ever have thought to pair purple eyes with a green dress? Bet you will now. Update: For the full list of the exact products Melanie used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Zoë Saldana

Zoe Saldana Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Loads of you guys didn’t love Zoë’s look a couple of red carpets ago (“corpse-like” is one makeup description I will never forget). Definitely can’t say that here, though. She has a fantastic glow. Like, tons-of-facials-and-juice-cleansing kind of fantastic. We still have the problem of visible eyebrow pencil, just like at the amfAR gala, but the rest of this I just can’t find fault with.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I’m so disappointed. And it’s not the short haircut—even though I was initially unsure, it’s actually growing on me. No, it’s the makeup here that I don’t think quite hits the mark, and it’s all the lipstick’s fault. This weird brownish red shade isn’t a colour I would ever choose for her; it feels too dark and too serious for her easygoing, fresh-faced, tomboy style. It also doesn’t seem to go with the earrings or the silver eyeshadow, which was extended all the way from lash line to eyebrows. Maybe if she’d done bare lids, it would have harmonized more. Or, even better, a peach or a pink for the lipstick and everyone would be happy. Update: The lipstick is Dior Rouge in Prune Daisy. For the full list of the exact products her makeup artist Ve Neill used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Wow! The Emmas are neck-and-neck for my top looks of the night. This is so fantastically dramatic—feels like they worked the entire look around those dangling turquoise earrings. The strong brows, fringe of lashes and black tight-lining balance them out and she wisely went for a completely nude lip and the barest hint of tone-on-tone blush. Makeup artist Dawn Broussard used Neutrogena products and I’m hoping to find out which ones tomorrow—I’ll bet the lip crayon that Jennifer Garner wore is one of them! Update: For the full list of exact products Dawn used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I think Sandra looks great here; definitely the best of the three red carpet looks we’ve seen on her so far in 2014 (see here and here). Her hair’s been pulled into a casual, low-slung pony draped over one shoulder, which is a young and effortlessly sexy style—a really great choice for her. Perhaps a bit heavy on the foundation, but I like her softly defined eyes and the berry lips.

Rashida Jones

Rashida Jones Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I’m a Rashida beauty fan, so of course I thought this was super-adorbs. This girl does the cutest top knot with bangs and needs to wear this hairstyle all the time. (Of course it was done by a celebrity stylist, John Ruggiero, but it looks totally effortless.) Makeup, by Kathy Jeung, features this wicked Cargo Essential Lip Color in Bordeaux, a shade that Rashida looks great in, whereas Jennifer Lawrence unfortunately does not. On her skin is Cargo Translucent Powder and Cargo Water Resistant Bronzer. Kathy also says Cargo Better Than Waterproof Mascara is her secret weapon. It’s one of those tubular formulas, which are a great choice when you absolutely can’t have smearing. Update: For the full list of the exact products Kathy used, plus how to copy her hairstyle, see my makeup and hair breakdown here.

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Usually, I love Jessica come awards season. Last year, I thought she absolutely killed it in terms of perfect Old Hollywood style. This time? I am on the fence about this hairdo. It was by Oribe, and it is indeed very Oribe. I love the idea of this (over-the-top ’80s glam), but I don’t know if she quite pulls it off. The makeup, by Kristofer Buckle, I am on board with except for the false eyelashes. Also, this is another example of a lip colour that harmonizes with her hair (warm) instead of contrasting (cool). Update: For the full list of exact products Kristofer used, plus how to copy this hairstyle, see my makeup and hair breakdown here.

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I am loving Drew lately! This look is quite similar to what we saw at the People’s Choice Awards, except with a lip that’s a little less matte and more pink, and hair parted on the side. Again, must be something about those pregnancy hormones because she is just radiant. Has she ever looked this gorgeous? I think not. Update: Her lipstick is her own Flower Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubby in Red-dy to Bloom.

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I know everyone worships Cate Blanchett in terms of her fashion choices, but beauty-wise? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I don’t like what’s happening here. It’s the hair that I’m not feeling. It was rolled under in a faux retro wavy bob, and I think it’s a little aging. It looks too formal, whereas if she’d gone for something looser, edgier and more textured, I think it would be way more flattering. The makeup is fine, maybe a bit powdery on the complexion, but mainly it’s let down by the hair. Update: Her lipstick is a custom mix of Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in #502, Scarletto (raspberry rose) and #509, Boudoir (nude rose).

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

OMG, Reese cut her hair—where have I been? My research tells me it was celeb stylist Renato Campora who gave her this “modern angular bob.” I love the length and the sharp, blunt ends… but the bangs look pretty thin and pointy. Plus, there are a few strange coppery highlight stripes on the top… of course, could just be bad lighting. As for the makeup, it was done by Mai Quynh, whose work I love. I think the coppery shadow (Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow, which Mai has used before on Reese) is super-flattering with blue eyes. For the full list of exact products Mai used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Kate Mara

Kate Mara Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

More hair news; Kate Mara’s gone blonde! It’s a fine job on the colour but I much prefer her as a brunette—I think she’s far more striking that way. That aside, this look is pretty spot-on. Love the messy texture and volume in her updo and the soft, smudgy rimmed eyes. See how the liner goes literally ALL the way around? Lots of Q-Tip clean-up to get that done. For the full list of exact products her makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Aw, Mila looks sad here. But she shouldn’t be—this eye makeup is her signature smoky goodness. Just look at that shimmery taupe extended almost to the brows, with black in the waterlines and more softly smudged shadow all the way around. Hair is totally slicked back because when you have almond eyes like that, you don’t need much else. Update: Mila is wearing Lancôme Color Design Infinite 24H Eye Shadow in Timeless Taupe on her eyes, and the lip colour is Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in #104, Skin.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Here’s Sofia Vergara looking exactly the same as she has at every other awards show in the history of this website, at least. Well, except for the hair—did you notice she’s gone blonder? I don’t mind it. Really, I’m more focused on pressing matters such as the eyebrows (why can’t they be tamed?) and does her lipstick always have to be so thick and heavy? I’m almost certain it will turn out to be CoverGirl, and that’s no excuse because they have wicked lipsticks. (Also, I’m currently wearing their lip crayon in Haute Pink Twist almost 24/7. Highly, highly recommend.) Finally, do I even have to mention Sofia’s eyelashes? Update: For the full list of exact products her makeup artist Kayleen McAdams used, see my makeup breakdown here.

Amy Adams

Amy Adams Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I always love Amy when she wears her hair down in retro waves, because she does them SO well, but this updo is pretty great as far as updos go. (Probably she had to wear her hair up because of the dress—but if it were me, ability to wear hair down would always be a deciding factor.) Anyway, I love the four braids that connect in a loose bun at the top. Makeup is by Stephen Sollitto, who dropped in to the comments the other day to let us know that Amy’s face is 100 percent au naturel. Thank you Stephen! I think he did a fab job on the makeup—beautiful sheer peach lip and cheeks, mascara on the top lashes and a touch of shimmer around the eyes. The lip gloss is a custom mix of Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Discretion and Tangerine, and that shadow is Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta. Update: For the full list of exact products Stephen used, plus how to copy this hairstyle, see my makeup and hair breakdown here.

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I don’t know about this, guys. I get it, Zooey is supposed to be so “quirky” and “unique”, but something about this is a little old-ladyish, no? At the same time, I do appreciate that it’s different—looking at the sea of tousled waves and slicked-back ‘dos can get a little boring. Maybe it’s just the flower that is bugging me, because I do love a side bun. I think the makeup is gorge—love the creamy red lip, porcelain skin with flushed cheeks and long lashes. Update: Zooey’s lips were first stained with Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick in Bold, and then Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Delighted was layered over top to add shine.

Amber Heard

Amber Heard Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Well, this is interesting. The hairstyle is teased to the heavens, and one could argue it’s kind of bird’s nest-like… but I’m on for this ride. (Amber is so model-esque, she can really do no wrong.) I also strangely find myself liking brown makeup for maybe the first time ever. Makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen used the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette to create dimension; the bronzey shimmer is from the Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy. On her lips is Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Whisper, a pinky beige shimmer. Update: For the full list of exact products Matthew used on her, see my makeup breakdown here.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Not understanding why Julia chose to wear a white dress shirt under a strapless dress, but at least she’s looking good from the neck up. Hair is maybe a bit old fashioned, but I love the makeup. Beautiful job on the softly smoky eyes and peachy blush with a pinky beige lip. The skin finish is also pretty good. Update: The lipstick Julia is wearing is Lancôme Rouge in Love in Lasting Kiss.

Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

This is a totally different look to what we’re used to seeing Sarah Hyland in, and I love it. She looks so fresh-faced and ethereal with the barely-there makeup, plus the textured updo with a braid acting as headband. Makeup artist Allan Avendaño used Dior Capture Total Dreamskin as an illuminating skin perfector/primer, and then Dior Capture Totale Foundation. I think the strong brows help define the otherwise neutral face. Lips were prepped with Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm, lined with Dior Contour Lipliner Pencil in Grege and then filled in with the brand new Dior Rouge Lipstick in Rose Crinoline from the spring collection (just came out this month!).

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

We’re back to classic Taylor here, circa 2011 or 2012—before she started mixing it up with the straight hair and bangs. The bright red lip, the black wingy liner on the upper lash line only and the tight curls in a faux bob should be very familiar to you. They’re alright, but I’m not, like, excited or anything. Been there, done this.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I had a friend who once remarked about a mutual acquaintance, “That woman can make a pair of YSL shoes look cheap like nobody else.” It was true. And I feel the same way about Heidi Klum. I don’t know what is wrong, exactly, but there is a similar aura always. I do like her hair here—gorgeous colour and perfect, eyebrow-skimming bangs. Makeup is lovely too—look at that cool highlight around her eyes. So what is the problem then? Beats me… but tell me if you know what I’m talking about.

Tina Fey

Tina Fey Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

When I look at this hairstyle up close, it seems like it could be a mistake—seeing as half-up hair is not particularly of the moment. But then zoomed out, when I see how it pairs with her strapless gown, it makes total sense. It’s the only style that would’ve done that dress justice, and the volume at the crown makes it special enough for a red carpet. Makeup is by Gita Bass (who did MY makeup last year and is soooo talented). I know for a fact she prefers to use Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and Clé de Peau concealer, both all-star, hall-of-fame skin makeup products. Maybe that is the same NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Baroque that she used on me?

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Naomi went for a golden palette here, and I’m appreciating both the simplicity of it and how the makeup colours harmonize with her gorgeous hair colour. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff used Lancôme Rouge in Love in Lasting Kiss, a nude pinkish brown, on her lips, which is echoed on the cheeks (that Lancôme Blush Subtil in Menage à Trois again). Notice how strong her brows are—Pati filled them in with Maybelline New York Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Blonde.

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

And I’m blown away by yet another pregnant lady! I think this has to be my favourite Kerry look of all time. Her skin is perfect, with no foundation or concealer issues that I can detect; the eyeshadow alone is a work of art. Her longtime makeup artist Carola Gonzalez did a beautiful, shimmery smoky eye with a defined outer edge. It’s complemented by the peach cheeks and nude, glossy lips. Hairstylist Marcus Francis did a beautiful smooth blowout with a tiny bit of wave. Perfection. Update: For the full list of exact products Carola used on her, see my makeup breakdown here.

Melissa Rauch

Melissa Rauch Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Melissa Rauch was wearing the dress I’d probably choose for myself (an hourglass-creating Romona Keveza in sunshiney yellow), and this is likely what I’d do with my hair and face, too. (Because hey—I’d like to pull an Emma Watson, but we’re not all born with that kind of canvas.) Melissa’s wavy side bun and bangs with soft makeup is a more universally flattering—and forgiving—look. I’m especially loving all these celebs with the coppery or rose gold shimmer around the eyes; Melissa is yet another example.

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Kate always looks flawless and knows exactly how to balance the right amount of casualness (the textured, twisted side bun) with big-night details like the smoky eyes. She has incredible skin and sure, she may have dabbled with a few needles here and there, but at age 40 she looks exceptional. On her eyes is a mix of Jouer Eye Shadows in Opal, Suede and Chocolat, and the lip gloss is Jouer Lip Gloss in Cherish.

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Dame Helen had fantastic makeup—a sheer pink lip, lashes, bit of sparkle under the eyes and a natural texture to her skin. Her hair isn’t being shown off to its best at this angle, but it’s a really cute, wavy bob with more volume on one side. I love the matchy-matchy green dress and earrings.

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyongo Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I had no idea who she was before the Golden Globes, but I predict we’re going to be seeing a lot more from Lupita Nyong’o—who looks the most model-esque of anyone on this red carpet. She not only stands out because of her perfectly symmetrical features and glowing skin, but also because she’s rocking this sleek, short, minimalist hairstyle. I appreciate that it’s her natural hair texture, and how hairstylist Larry Sims made it look so cool with the strong side part and volume on one side. The makeup, by Nick Barose, was channelling Nefertiti and Cleopatra. Eyes are a tad bloodshot, but I love the curve of the liner. Update: The lipstick Lupita is wearing is Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate.

Allison Williams

Allison Williams Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Allison Williams looks fantastic when she does up her eyes, no? At the People’s Choice Awards, I loved when she wore this indigo liner underneath her lower lash line. For the Globes, she went for a higher-impact look, with black in the waterlines (all the way around) and a silvery grey eyeshadow blended above and underneath that. (Her eyes are a little bloodshot too, come to think of it.) Fresh skin and a pinky nude lip—instead of brownish, yay!—completed the look. Notice also how she’s dressed up her hair in a really easy way. It’s stick-straight with a defined part deep on one side, and then tucked behind the ears. The sleekness of it totally works with the bolder earrings and eye makeup. Update: For the full list of the exact products her makeup artist Lauren Andersen used, plus how to copy her hairstyle, see my makeup and hair breakdown here.

Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I’m most drawn to Emilia Clarke’s hair here instead of the makeup (although it’s obviously good, too). As I mentioned above, I’m a “hair down” kind of girl and these loose, soft, touchable waves are what I aspire to—that is, if my own hair could hold a curl to save its life. See how they’re not so piecey? And a tiny bit textured but not messy or frizzy? That’s why they are so much better than most of the curls we see out of Hollywood. You already know the man behind them, Mark Townsend, who is a celebrity hair god as far as I’m concerned. (Read his dry shampoo tips if you missed them!) After curling with a 1 1/2″ curling iron, he got the texture from Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, an excellent splurgey hair product.

Elisabeth Moss

Elisabeth Moss Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Is Elisabeth Moss wearing Belle Jolie lipstick? I guess we’ll never know because I can’t track down the name of this cranberry shade. I like the red on her, but I would like very much for her to start filling in her eyebrows, which seem too light compared to her hair. (I had this problem once myself when I had a temporarily lapse from my blonderexia and went dark. The eyebrows were a big problem. Never again!!) Speaking of hair, I think this colour is too dark for Elisabeth as well. Maybe it’s from the dye—it looks dull instead of smooth and shiny. If she was going for a cool textured look here, it didn’t quite succeed.

Michelle Dockery

Michelle Dockery Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Michelle Dockery looks really good here, maybe the best I’ve ever seen. But… I can’t help but feel like she’s a bit librarian-ish on the red carpet and could do with shaking things up for a change. For example, I would love to see her hair back and off her face instead of it always being in a bob. Not that this style is bad actually—it just comes across a bit conservative with her features. I can see this bouncy blowout being sexier, say, on Drew Barrymore—remember that over-the-top ‘do she wore to the Oscars a few years back? Or think Marilyn Monroe.

Leslie Mann

Leslie Mann Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Leslie Mann is so good on the red carpet. Right? I’m always surprised at how much I like what she’s doing and wearing. This is the perfect mix of casualness (the blown-out straight hair tossed over one shoulder) with dressy (the amazing coral lipstick whose name eludes me). She doesn’t have the thickest lips but look, she’s rocking the bright lip anyway and it looks hot! I also like that she didn’t overwhelm her delicate features with false lashes or heavy brows/shadow/liner.

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Gosh, could Margot Robbie get any prettier? This is how they make ‘em Down Under, folks. The Aussie actress didn’t need to do much to enhance her natural beauty here, just a slight deepening of her lips’ natural colour, blush, mascara and some definition on the eyebrows. If we want to nit-pick, maybe the blush could be blended a bit better.

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Well, this is a big improvement! Kaley’s hair looks so much nicer when it’s blown out perfectly straight like this, and arranged over one shoulder. Colour is pretty good and it flatters her skin tone. The makeup I am 99 percent on board with. I like that she took a risk with this green shadow, and that it’s been applied on both the top and bottom lids. I just don’t think the brown smoked out edges are necessary. Kinda dates it, right? Emma Watson would have never. Update: Kaley’s green eyes are from Mark On The Dot Smokey Eye Color Compact (two top right shades) and the Avon Glimmerstick Waterproof Eye Liner in Emerald.

Kyra Sedgwick

Kyra Sedgwick Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

We don’t see nearly enough natural curls on the red carpet, if you ask me. I think Kyra’s have been helped along a bit with an iron, and I’d love for them to be a bit less separated-looking, but I applaud her for doing this over a smooth blow-dry. Her makeup is excellent, by the way—nothing heavy, just lashes, blush and a stained-looking lip.

Maria Menounos

Maria Menounos Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

If only Maria didn’t look so shiny here, I’d say this was one of her best showings. Not sure if she was purposely going for the dewy look or if it was just hot out there, but I’m not loving the skin texture so much. What I do like is how she looks in pink (great colour for her), her hair and eyebrow colour (also very flattering), the ponytail and her eye makeup. If she ditched the lip liner and lip gloss, put her blush on the apples instead of weirdly under her cheekbones and stopped trimming her eyebrows, we could really have something here! But, she comes from TV world, so her ways with makeup are understandable, even if they’re misguided.

Julianna Margulies

Julianna Margulies Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Julianna nailed it. Makeup could not be more perfect—it’s sheer enough not to age her, but has just enough emphasis at the outer corners of the eyes to look dressed up. She did exactly the right thing with her updo; the side part and hair sweeping across her forehead makes very flattering.

Aubrey Plaza

Aubrey Plaza Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Aubrey has a very unique look and I think this hairstyle suits her to a T. It’s a good colour and length on her, although maybe a bit too matted down on the top from hairspray—like it would feel crispy if you touched it. Makeup is nice and subtle. I’m finding myself actually liking that shimmery taupe extended way above her crease, even though I usually don’t like it with this eye shape.

Anna Gunn

Anna Gunn Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Anna Gunn has perfect skin and I like how you can really see it here; it’s not covered up by much foundation. However, it’s not being shown off to its best advantage when her hair and eyebrows are the same golden colour. The best thing she could do would be to darken her brows slightly. It would make a world of difference—her face is just crying out to be framed!

Bérénice Bejo

Berenice Bejo Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Remember Bérénice from the Oscars two years ago? She’s since dyed her hair—and brows—a much better colour, this dark brown that brings out her eyes. I think she pulls off the volume at the top of her updo but between the red lipstick, giant gold earrings and neckline of her flamenco outfit, there is a lot going on.

Paula Patton

Paula Patton Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Let’s just say Paula was having a bad beauty day. I think she looks fantastic when she does fresh skin and long, loose hair. The formality of this rolled-under faux bob doesn’t quite suit her or flatter her… and her skin has a heavy, powdery texture that makes her look costumey. Plus, her eyebrows are already strong so no need to make them even thicker.

Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

I think it was in Us Weekly that I read a quote from Amy Poehler about how she never reads Twitter; it’s because people say things like, “Call me crazy, but I think Amy Poehler’s attractive.” (Um, thank you?) I feel like I’ve alluded to something like that, but the fact is, her hair and makeup are getting better and better. (Remember how great she looked here?) The longer hair is pretty and her strong features do well with the soft makeup.

Robin Wright

Robin Wright Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Eat your heart out, Sean Penn. Robin Wright is one woman who gets better with age. At 47, she has such confidence and elegance with her short haircut, beautiful skin and minimal makeup. I think most of all what radiated from her at the Golden Globes, which she attended with her husband-to-be, was happiness. Yay Robin!

Elsa Pataky

Elsa Pataky Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Thought you’d all like to see a shot of Elsa Pataky, queen of the short haircut. Last time we checked in with her, she had a shorter ‘do with the most amazing side-swept long bangs. At the Globes, it’s clear she is growing her hair out, and I like this style too. She’s another one who looks so, so happy. I guess you would be if you were on the arm of Chris Hemsworth. They are expecting twins!

Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Jenna Dewan Tatum Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Like Elsa, Jenna chose to pose at the Globes with her man, so I don’t have the perfect makeup close-up… but what I see from here, I likey. She reminds me of Mila Kunis with those eyebrows, and has the same type of almond-shaped eyes that can handle a ton of shadow. The gold shadow with the red lipstick is a really pretty combo, and she’s made the same move as Allison Williams with her hair.

Uma Thurman

Can’t quite see what’s going on with Uma’s makeup in this picture, but we can see her hair. It’s not just any updo; it’s a curly updo. I’m totally into it. The curls make it soft and give it some natural, flattering texture.

Taylor Schilling

Taylor Schilling Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

Not the most modern or interesting hair and makeup choices on Taylor Schilling. If I was styling her, I’d part her hair deep on one side instead of down the middle, which doesn’t really flatter her. Then I’d wipe off all that brown eyeshadow and keep her eyes really clean with a brighter red lip. This look is neither here nor there, and I feel she needs something—like a bold lip—to make a statement.

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

OMG, blast from the past. Minnie Driver, like Kyra Sedgwick, wore her curls au naturel at the Globes. Now, I don’t claim to know a lot about curly hair, but isn’t this exactly the kind of cut you don’t want to have with this hair texture? It’s sort of borderline triangular and again we have the issue of unseparated curls. I think she needs to grow it out to shoulder-length and muss it up a bit. Also add some product—Kyra’s curls look so smooth and soft, whereas Minnie’s look frizzy.

Julie Bowen

Julie Bowen Golden Globes Awards 2014 Who had the best hair and makeup at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards? Here are the celebrity close ups!

So surprised that Julie Bowen is my biggest miss of the night. She’s been among my faves in seasons past, but made the grave mistake of wearing a brown makeup palette and an updo that look straight out of the early ’80s. Could this not fit in over at Awkward Family Photos? (She’s even wearing velvet and puffed sleeves!) Could have been fixed if they parted her hair on the side instead of the centre part with wings… and she needs a wipe taken to her face. Her complexion looks muddy, almost dirty. She’d be much better served by a sheer foundation, pinky lip, some blush and no lip liner. (PS: Can we all appreciate the makeup artist Kate Lee, who did Emma Watson’s makeup and is on record as not liking lip liner? Hallelujah.)

Have your say

I really enjoyed looking at these pics and reading your comments. Great post. And lots of good looking ladys here without one major beauty fail.
I’m not happy with Heidi Klum either. But I know what’ bugging me: it’s the nude lip and the white eyeliner on her waterline. She always does that and it never compliments her.

Oh thank you!

Is that what Heidi’s problem is? Sometimes I like that look but I guess combined with the faux tan, tacky dresses and insane cleavage it’s a bit much. And here I just discovered this product for the waterlines (in Stone) – it’s actually really great! http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/burberry-beauty-effortless-kohl-pencil/3653181?origin=category-personalizedsort&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=&resultback=1415&cm_sp=personalizedsort-_-browseresults-_-1_4_B

First off, I don’t think Jennifer Lawrence has the eyelids to carry off a lot of eye make-up.
Sofia Vergara looks awful and like she’s trying so hard to look younger than she is.
Mila Kunis’ eye make-up is beautiful.
I thought Amy Adams’ up-do was very prom and while I’m glad she isn’t injecting her face full of crap, the wrinkles around her eyes are pretty severe for her age..
Amber Heard’s skin looks so flawless I can’t believe it’s real.
I thought Julia Roberts looked very matronly with that shirt and updo.
Taylor Swift is so boring and annoying, and Heidi Klum must be the only supermodel out there that can look so ridiculous?
Favourites would have to be Emma Watson, Amber Heard and Zooey.

I love Amy’s crows feet! And that she is choosing to age naturally and gracefully, which in the long run will see her looking much better than her peers. I also don’t find her crows feet to be severe for almost 40, but I live in Australia where sun exposure is huge,so I assume we have more wrinkles than Canadians!

I agree, it’s nice to see a star who is normal and not frozen-looking.

Oh and by the way, I lived in Australia right after university and I remember thinking so many people I met were way older than me. I was shocked to find out people in their early 20s already had wrinkles. The sun is super strong down there!

I came home with tons of freckles and my dermatologist told me every year you spend in Australia is equivalent to 10 years of sun exposure in Canada, or something like that. Nice!

Haha – I am SURE most Canadians would trade the weather here for Australia’s. The only thing that helped my sun damage was IPL. I did it twice to get rid of some pigmentation that bothered me, and it did work. I’ve done several stints of Retin-A and Lustra (hydroquinone) but never noticed a difference from those…

Yes, I agree with you about Jennifer Lawrence. She has no crease to play with so it ends up looking overdone. Same issue I had way back in the day with Blake Lively (see here: http://beautyeditor.ca/2010/11/25/kate-bosworth-is-a-great-wearer-of-eyeshadow-and-well-makeup-in-general-blake-lively-is-most-definitely-not/). I have this issue myself and I mainly stick to just emphasizing the lash line and lashes… eyeshadow looks very JonBenet on me.

Maybe you have to watch Modern Family to appreciate Sofia Vergara? (I don’t.) I’d love to give her a makeunder.

I think Amy Adams just has that thin, fragile skin that shows lines earlier. I know someone who already had really bad crow’s feet like that by age 31! I don’t think the creases are as bad when she’s not smiling. She’s such a delicate beauty that it would probably be too weird if she froze them with Botox.

Haha re: Taylor Swift. I KNOW.

Every time Sandra Bullock makes an appearance I’m wishing she would lighten her hair just a bit. I think it makes it so much prettier and younger-looking. On a different note, can I please have Olivia Wilde’s hair? Pretty please

Interesting… I’ve never considered that, but you’re right, a light brown would look really good on her! I think it’s true that the dark brunettes can sometimes be a bit aging.

I want Olivia Wilde’s hair too – I was so over Ombre but it looks amazing on her.

My absolute favourites are Emma Roberts (flawless skin) and Amber Heard, who I tend to fawn over regardless of makeup/dress choice because she’s just devastatingly pretty.

The makeup looks on Kerry Washington, Julia Roberts, and Emma Watson (did she loose an earring?) are also particularly well done. The rest are quite forgettable and lack something special.

I don’t have much to say about her makeup, and we’re not talking about fashion here, but I have to mention something about Tina Fey’s formfitting dresses of the night… the woman has a gorgeous body! Don’t think anyone but Sofia Vergara compares in those terms.

I agree with you on all of those! And yes, the rest aren’t all that exciting, just generic red carpet sameness… still finishing all the photos but at least I haven’t seen any major disasters yet. (Although the disasters are pretty fun to look at.)

I didn’t realize Tina Fey was so hourglass! She has a really perfect figure.

Yep, the brown makeup trend is here whether we like it or not! I think Amber did it nicely and I can even deal with Jessica Chastain’s lips because they match her hair. A lot of the others are very blah nudes…

Should have Emma’s makeup list tomorrow – I’ll update this post with the link :)

I agree 100000000% about Heidi Klum!

Anyway, I LOVED Sarah Hyland’s look. I also think Sofia Vergara looks really good. Obviously she’s wearing more makeup than normal people- she’s on a red carpet! I think she can pull it off though because her personality is so over the top.. The excessive makeup/hair/jewelry/dress is soo her! Love it.

Yeah, I don’t know her as an actress so I guess that’s why I see it as too much instead of suiting her personality. You definitely need to be a little over-the-top to do the big lips, big brows, big hair… but hey, she keeps it interesting. I’d love to see her mix it up a bit more; feels like it’s always the same look.

Sarah Hyland is beautiful (and has enviable eyebrows) but I think they were filled in too heavy for her otherwise natural makeup look. I think if you’re going to do a bold brow you have to have another strong element with the eye makeup (liner, shadow or mascara) to balance them, otherwise they look too mannish or Bert-like. I guess I notice this because I have similar brows and if I go bare with my eyes I have to tone down the brows as well.

Yeah, I looked again and I see what you mean. Maybe a bit too strong/defined, especially on the inner corners. I’m conscious of this myself – it’s why I have major trust issues when makeup artists try to fill in my brows! Usually I look like a crazy manic clown if they fill them in too dark/thick. I like Amber Heard’s brows here.

Ohh I thought the exact same about Jennifer Lawrence! Such an awful look for her. I don’t know what her/her people were thinking.

While I think Amber Heard’s makeup is incredible, mainly because of her crazy good looks and insane skin, I think her hair is waaaay too overdone. She’s too young and fresh to wear it like that.

The two Emma’s are the absolute standouts to me and Kerry Washington also looks stunning. Her skin and hair are to die for.

Jessica Chastain’s hair was exceptionally bad and aged her I thought. Hate those lashes too. She is a very striking woman though.

Olivia Wilde has been blessed with crazy good genetics and once again looks flawless. Shame about the dress!

And Helen Mirren.. gosh she killed it. She’s a total babe, looks better than many of the younger girls.

Yeah, Amber’s hair was a bit crazy/bird’s nest-ish. The only reason she gets away with it is because she’s so young/insanely gorgeous.

I had written that about Jessica Chastain’s hairstyle, that it was aging, but I edited it out, thinking I was being a bit mean :) I don’t know why she didn’t do the side-swept retro waves that look so good on her. I guess then we’d be saying she’s boring.

I really like Olivia’s dress!

Her hair is awful. She look like she just got out of bed, and then stuck her finger in an electric socket.

Sarah Hyland has the prettiest face. I would like her hair framing it rather than up, but this is nice too. I think this old man has a crush.

How was Lupita Nyong’o not on this list?! She was absolutely radiant last night, and the combination of her deep red lip and the navy liner under her eyes complemented her stunning dress so well. Plus, her skin is to die for.

I totally agree about Jennifer Lawrence’s makeup. That dress was amazing and had a little bit of a grecian vibe, I would have loved to see a softer smokey eye on her with some gold and bronze. And that lip color makes her look so super pale and washed out. A lighter, glossier lip would have been the way to go.

I feel like nobody can rock a smokey eye and barely there nude lip like Kate Mara, and I hope she never stops. So amazingly beautiful on every red carpet!

Rashida Jones and Drew Barrymore also always look great. I love their simple neutral eye + red lip combos. They just looked effortlessly cute and pulled together.

Kate Beckinsale and Amber Heard are both so naturally pretty they can wear any makeup and look amazing, so both were gorgeous as usual!

Sarah Hyland I think was the standout for me though. I’ve seen more than a few looks on her that didn’t suit her at all, way too done with colors that aged her. This look is so pretty, fresh, and age appropriate for her.

Yep, Rashida and Drew are so darn cool. I have Rashida’s makeup list here: http://beautyeditor.ca/2014/01/15/rashida-jones-golden-globes-2014/ and added Drew’s lipstick above.

It does seem like Sarah Hyland is finally looking more relaxed and age-appropriate – always got this ‘trying too hard’ vibe from her pics before.

I really loved Zooey Deschanel’s and Kate Beckinsdale’s make up.

I have a question for Michelle.
I’m a dentist in late thirties and I love wearing bright red lipsticks but I never do at work. Do you think people would find it “too much” if their dentist wears a bright red lipstick at work?

Zooey’s lip products have been added above :)

As for wearing a bold lip to work… personally I love it when women do that, but I’m coming from a creative background so I agree that some people might find it “too much” in a medical environment. I think the compromise could be to do a lip stain, that way you still get the bolder colour but not the thick texture of a lipstick. If you blend it a bit with your fingers the effect is a little softer. The Tarte LipSurgence pencils are really good for example – they stain your lips but are not drying at all. What do you think?

Thanks for your recommendation, Michelle. I will definitely check them out.
After my 65 year-old mom told me “You can wear whatever lipstick colour you want to wear; why should you care what some one else thinks?”, I wore Ruby Woo (but without a lip liner and softened it up a bit).
One of my lady patients told me she loved it and I didn’t look like a ghost ( I have pale lips and always look washed out if I don’t wear some colour on my lips).

Love your blog, by the way. You have a good sense of humour!

I like your mom! There are also some really good drugstore lip crayons that are hybrid lipstick/gloss/balms, if you don’t want to pay Sephora prices. I’ve been loving CoverGirl – they have some great bright pinks that might not be as over the top as a red. Haute Pink Twist is my favourite shade of their lip crayon.
