18 Jaw-Dropping Golden Globes Beauty Looks We Totally Want to Steal

We know the true purpose of award season is to celebrate the best in film and TV, but as beauty editors, we can't help but think it serves another purpose—that is, providing enough hair and makeup inspiration to last us an entire year. While we've already witnessed some stunning looks from the Emmys and the American Music Awards, we consider the Golden Globes to be the real kickoff to award season. After all, it's the first show of the New Year and, in a sense, the one that dictates the hair and makeup trends for all others that follow. 

This year's Golden Globes are a sight to behold since some of the buzziest movies and TV shows are nominated—think The White Lotus, The Crown, Wednesday, Babylon, Elvis, and Top Gun: Maverick I could go on. That means the equally buzzy (and stylish) celebs that star in them are walking the red carpet. So without further ado, keep scrolling to see the 18 most jaw-dropping beauty looks from the 2023 Golden Globes.

Jenna Ortega debuted a new auburn hair color, a cool shag haircut, and (if you look closely) double-winged liner. It's like she used the Golden Globes red carpet to give us a master class in trendy Gen Z beauty, and we're taking notes.

We couldn't stop staring at Daisy Edgar-Jones's hair, which was pulled up into a bun at the nape of her neck with lots of volume at the crown and soft, feathery bangs at the front. It's basically the 2023 version of a classic '60s bouffant.

Anya Taylor-Joy sported the same waist-grazing platinum-blonde hair that she debuted on the Golden Globes red carpet last year. Only this time, it was styled slick-straight and pinned back on one side. It's perfection.

Monica Barbaro of Top Gun: Maverick chose a simple and classic look for the Golden Globes red carpet. She paired an elegant half-up hairstyle with crimson lipstick.

Kaley Cuoco debuted her baby bump on the red carpet along with feathery, French-girl bangs and radiant pink blush. The combination is a winning one.

Yet another '60s reference (are we sensing a theme here?), Elizabeth Debicki's heavy black eyeliner, middle part, and effortless hair texture were the perfect combination.

If the Golden Globes are any indication, 2023 is the year of low-key hairstyles paired with glowing makeup. Michelle Williams's matching pink cheek and lip color is a prime example. 

Selena Gomez

There are two things we love about Selena Gomez's look. The first is her high pony, which was styled in soft, bending waves. The second was her eye makeup, which was ever-so-slightly smoky. To us, it looks like it could have come from the Rare Beauty Magnetic Spirit Eyeshadow Palette ($25).

Must-have beauty products: Olivia Garden Titanium + Ion Curling Iron ($100); René Furterer Style Holding Gel ($30)

Margot Robbie paired her Barbie-esque pink gown with a dark red lip color and matching blush. It seems like monochromatic makeup is yet another trend at the Golden Globes. 

Must-have beauty products: Image Skincare VITAL C Hydrating Facial Mist ($40) and Vital C Deluxe Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum ($115)

Ana de Armas

Here's another simple yet elegant look. Ana de Armas paired thick, winged liner with a terra-cotta red lip. It's a look that will never go out of style.

Speaking of Old Hollywood glamour, leave it to Jennifer Coolidge to arrive with voluminous, tousled barrel curls. We think her character in The White Lotus would approve. 

Must-have beauty products: Better Not Younger Lift Me Up Hair Thickener ($35) and License to Curl, Curl Revival Boost Spray ($35)

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain looked like an actual Golden Globe award. She looked bronze and sculpted thanks to what looked like expertly blended blush and bronzer. 

Must-have beauty products: Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter ($48) and Beautiful Skin Foundation ($46); Sisley Paris Hair Rituel The Cream 230 Restorative Hair Cream ($105)

When she's not playing Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon, Milly Alcock is giving us some serious Gen Z–approved beauty inspiration. We love the way she paired metallic eye shadow with slick-shine hair.
