We’re a mere week into the 2019 awards season and as expected, there’s already plenty of red carpet moments worthy of a rewind. For instance, the Golden Globes gave us a gang of Cinderella-inspired gowns, hairstyles with hidden surprises and plenty of red lipstick. And while we were understandably impressed with the unabashed glamour of that event, the Critics’ Choice Awards proved to be more low-key, but equally noteworthy.
Though there wasn’t one, clear trend that ruled the annual event, a few standout looks did cause us to do a double-take. Whereas hairstyles were generally low-key and simple, makeup was another story. For one, a naked eyelid was nowhere to be seen. From Issa Rae’s emerald green smoky eye to Mandy Moore’s bubblegum pink accents, shimmery shadows showed up and showed out, proving that glitz isn’t just for the holiday season.
And though we’re sure the wine was flowing inside, it was just as bounteous outside, where Emmy Rossum, Indya Moore and others sported bordeaux-inspired lip colors to match their ensembles. See the most attention-grabbing beauty moments below.
