The Critics’ Choice Awards celebrate accomplishments in TV and film, but tonight we were more interested in the celeb beauty looks on the blue carpet. From our favorite up-and-comers to the most seasoned movie stars, there was no shortage of hair and makeup inspiration. Looking for a gunmetal smoky eye or a romantic crown braid? Right this way. Here, a closer look at the best beauty of the evening.
Gina Rodriguez's Bold Lip
The orange hue of Gina's lipstick pairs perfectly with that of her dress. Always be mindful of undertones when wearing bold makeup with bright fabrics.
Bryce Dallas Howard's Gunmetal Smoky Eye
A true black shadow against a fair skin tone can look too stark. If you have a lighter complexion but want a sultry smoky eye, opt for dark gray and silver shades instead.
Constance Wu's Romantic Crown Braid
The romance is in Constance's messy texture and loose wispy pieces. To copy her look, pull out a few strands to frame the face and back-comb the braid to create a lived-in look.
Rachel McAdams' Glossy Lip
Rachel shows us that it is possible to have a glossy and bold-hued lip. She took the look one step further by pairing it with a dress in a similar shade with just as much shine.
January Jones' Icy Shadow
Yes, you can wear a shimmery, baby blue shadow as an adult. Trace the entire eye with a black eyeliner to give it a sexy, sultry look.
