With awards season upon us, we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite recent red carpet beauty looks from the Oscars to the Grammys (and every movie premiere and press junket in between).
Always one to push the boundaries, Kristen’s glinty eye shadow and pompadour at Cannes this year had us mesmerized.
Here’s J.Law looking absolutely regal with her red lip and center-parted strands at this year’s BAFTA awards.
Stone’s makeup artist layered five different shadows to create a stunning glittery effect on her lids (including a silver and slate blue shadow on her lower lash line). Needless to say, she sparkled.
Constance looks radiant with her berry stained lips and loose waves while promoting Crazy Rich Asians.
What better way to complement your pink layered dress than a ribbon-adorned ballerina bun and fuchsia pout?
Michelle’s navy eyeliner and platinum pixie strikes the perfect balance between edgy and classic.
Julianne shows off monochromatic makeup (and hair) with her coppery lids and tawny bronzer.
Rae demonstrates that a glossy nude lip complements metallic eye shadow without competing against it.
Ah, who can forget when Emma first cut her hair after wrapping the Harry Potter series? Here, she slicked it all back so the focus went straight to her gold-leafed lids.
We’re keeping an eye on Millie, who has proven to be quite the trendsetter since her debut in Stranger Things. Here she is with a modern take on a major '80s trend: blue eye shadow.
Priyanka's beauty team drew inspiration from an Italian Renaissance painting for the Met Gala this year. The result? Ruby red lips, golden lids and sculpted waves that haunt our dreams.
Remember when Reese cut her bangs just before the Golden Globes...and we all rushed to get bangs the next day?
Based on her Cleopatra-inspired cat eye (which, if you look closely, has turquoise accents along the lower lash line), we think it’s pretty safe to say that Yara will make many more “best of” lists in the future.
Amal keeps it classic with cascading waves and a bold matte lip.
There’s no denying that Cate is Hollywood royalty with her steely gaze and glamorous '20s hairstyle.
Remember when Lupita received her first Oscar looking like a real-life Cinderella?
Glowing skin? Check. Satin red lips? Check.
Kerry went all in with her bright coral lip and curled updo for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party this year.
Before Stranger Things, Winona was everyone's celeb crush of the Y2K. Here she is at the Oscar's party with perfectly mussed hair and candy pink lips.
A timeless beauty look for any occasion: fluttery lashes, clean skin and a nude lip.
Williams won her first Oscar this year for her role in Brokeback Mountain; she forever cemented a place in our hearts with this red lip and mustard yellow dress.
Behold: Dame Helen Mirren with her perfectly layered cut and cherry pink lipstick.
Classic Mariah: Glamorous waves and a warm (ahem) honey glow.
Kirsten Dunst’s soft palette of pinks and purples matches her dress perfectly.
Who but Rihanna can make purple lipstick look this good?
Gwyneth stole the show (the “show” in this case being the Academy Awards) with her navy blue smoky eye and accent braid.
Jennifer Connelly makes a strong case for minimalist hair and makeup here.
Jada’s creamy pink lipstick is offset by her golden eye shadow and twisted updo.
Sleek hair meets simple barrette.
Fact: Rooney Mara dons a bright red lip better than anyone.
Brb, adding Gemma Chan’s plum smoky eye and rosy cheeks to our Pinterest board.
Presenting the pixie cut that inspired countless others for years to come.
When you have an enviably toned back like Swank, a simple bun is more than enough.
Classic Jen: Soft touchable hair, bronzed skin and a slick of nude gloss.
Zendaya’s Vivienne Westwood dress and dreadlock hairstyle was so memorable that Mattel decided to create a Barbie in her exact image.
Gina shined at the Golden Globes last year with her glowing skin and a pop of silver liner along the inner corners of her eyes. (OK, the sequined dress helped.)
Penelope channeling some serious Audrey Hepburn (à la Breakfast at Tiffany's) vibes.
We’re not sure what we love more here: SJP’s mermaid waves or her kohl-rimmed eyes.
We’re pretty sure the whole monochromatic makeup trend blew up after Emily Ratajkowski showed up at the Academy Awards looking like a bronzed goddess.
The voluminous half-up hairstyle, soft cat eye and plush lips: This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we watch the red carpet.
2001: When Britney ruled all with her smoked-out eyes and bombshell waves.
Rashida’s sleek angled lob and eye-skimming bangs prove that red carpet hair doesn’t always look stuffy.
Evan Rachel Wood’s swept-up bun and fluttery lashes evoke another era.
Janelle Monae is a red carpet queen (with a crown as proof).
When Natalie Portman showed up at the Academy Awards in 2011, we no longer questioned whether pregnancy glow was a real thing.
We love the way Freida juxtaposed her soft blue dress with bright magenta lips and rows of braids.
Uma arrived at the 78th Academy Awards looking every bit as gilded as one of its coveted statues.
Tessa Thompson kept it modern at a recent premiere with a slash of graphic eyeliner on an otherwise bare face.
Browns and taupes will always be classic, but there’s something to be said for electric blue liner.
