Beauty best of: Awards season's most covetable looks

It's time for a beauty best of, and what better time than the end of the most glamorous string of events of all time, awards season. Here are the looks we loved...


Stand out hair, pops of lip colour, bright liners... We've seen it all on the red carpet this awards season. It used to be the case that beauty was all rather same-y on the bigger awards nights, but not anymore.

People are taking risks, there are colours being used again and we're legitimately struggling to select the top looks. But here, we've narrowed it down a bit.

This look wasn't quite as understated as her normal barely-there looks, but it was still fresh, youthful and just the right amount of glam. Saoirse is yet to put a beauty step wrong — are we biased? Maybe.

Janelle Monae at the Oscars

This is giving serious futuristic Joan of Arc vibes and we're into it. The glitter liner, the fan of lashes and the pop of coral on the lip = perfection.

Florence Pugh at the BAFTAs

The liner flick, the subtlety, the bright lip clashing with the fuchsia pink gown — Florence is our new beauty crush for sure. She's just got a face that would pull any look off.

Kerry Washington at the Vanity Fair Oscar party

It's official. There's nothing this woman can't wear, or can't put on her face. She looks radiant, smooth-skinned and flawless as always. Love.

Billie Eilish at the Oscars

Billie's wild colours might not be exactly something you could recreate yourself, but her commitment to her look — those two-inch-long nails, those neon green roots — is something to be admired for sure.
