We spent the morning transfixed by many of the perfect outfit choices from the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, and now it’s time to take a closer look at some of the standout beauty looks of the night. Award season doesn’t just present an opportunity to display gorgeous designer gowns, we also get a sense of the beauty trends emerging from the red carpets that are sure to take hold into the SS16 season. From Jennifer Aniston’s superior smoky eye to Kirsten Dunst’s perfect red lip and Saoirse Ronan’s impeccable dewy skin, we’ve chosen our favourite 10 from the night.
1. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten’s brick red lip was paired perfectly with minimal eye make-up and glowing skin. Her chic bob also worked well with the look.
2. Jennifer Aniston
While Jen played it fairly safe in terms of hair (why fix what isn’t broken?), her amazing smokey eyes did all the talking – eyeliner is clearly the woman’s friend – matched perfectly with a nude lip. She tends to favour a natural look when heading down the red carpet, so we like that she has ventured from this.
3. Saoirse Ronan
No one does dewy skin quite like Saoirse. A hint of blush on her cheeks goes perfectly with her shimmery eyes. She looks fresh and beautiful.
4. Rachel McAdams
We love her lob and that amazing plum-red lip.
5. Liv Tyler
Expectant mum Liv looked gorgeous with a hint of blue eye shadow and a hot pink lip. Her side-swept hair complimented her look perfectly.
6. Amy Schumer
Plenty of bronze-goddess vibes going here as Amy opts for a glowing tan, shimmering cheeks, metallic eyeshadow and windswept, wavy hair. We approve.
7. Rosie Huntington Whiteley
Those cheekbones, incredible eyes and impeccable hair say it all. She’s stunning.
8. Krysten Ritter
Kristen kept her hair casual and emphasised her striking eyes with a set of lashes and a pearly pink lip to top it off.
9. Alicia Vikander
Her casual up-do works well with her barely there make-up. The soft pink lip lifts the look and makes it work.
10 January Jones
We love the back-combed hair and the fact that she can rock the on-trend blue eyeshadow to perfection.
