Porcelain skin, peroxide blonde and petal red lips are always a winning combination. “She’s fierce, badass and a mega power,” said Vanessa Kirby’s make-up artist Jo Baker, “and I wanted to convey that in the make-up.”
Always in timeless Hollywood glamour, Amanda Seyfried paired her immense tulle with a rich berry lip and a slick, side-swept chignon.
Zendaya’s Cher-inspired look came complete with her flowing loose waves and a touch of blushing pinks on eyes, lips and cheeks.
With new pandemic bangs and undone waves, Margot Robbie’s lowkey, romantic make-up look was what her make-up artist Pati Dubroff calls “open optimism and sunshine-y days.”
The only thing better than Angela Bassett’s puffy sleeved Alberta Ferretti gown was her slick center-part and midnight violet eye make-up.
The best dress of the night, a bob cut so blunt it could cause an injury, subtle blue tones with kohl-rimmed eyes to match the dress – Regina King always understands the assignment.
Perfectly undone hair, bronze eyes, a nude lip and a glowy tan – the Reese Witherspoon formula always works.
Soft loose waves and a lesson in the perfect pastel lavender eyeshadow from Emerald Fennell. It’s a combination of Clinique’s eyeshadow in Sugar Cane and Quickliner in Grape if you’re curious.
Andra Day wore a deep brown lip liner of 90s dreams with soft curls and glimmering eyes by Chanel.
