10 Best Beauty Looks From The Critics’ Choice Awards


by Jennifer McShane
18th Jan 2016

Saoirse Ronan is one celebrity who prefers a more natural-looking brow.

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.

ICYMI: Photos: The Critics’ Choice Awards 2016?

1. Kirsten Dunst?

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Press Room

We love her lob and that amazing plum-red lip.

5. Liv Tyler

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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?

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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

The 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

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.
