Further proof Ruth is set to shine throughout her first award show season: the Loving star’s silver smoky eye and matching sequined dress. Celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis created Ruth's pewter eye by sweeping Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in New Moon ($36; chanel.com) all over the lid up to the crease. Next, the pro drew on a thick, winged line near the lash line and smudged it with a brush. To create more depth, Inglessis used the dark burgundy shadow in Chanel's Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tisse Cambon ($61; chanel.com) on the outer corners and in the eye crease, and a pop of rose gold on the inner corner. Finally, the pro finished by applying a coat of Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir ($32; chanel.com) on Ruth's upper lashes, and Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir ($32; chanel.com) on her lower lashes.

Celebrity manicurist and Paintbox Creative Director Julie Kandalec chose subtle, complimentary nail polish shades to complete actress' sparkly red carpet look. The pro used Red Carpet Manicure's Natural LED Gel Nail Polish Collection in Candid Moment ($10; ulta.com) for her manicure, and the brand's LED Gel Nail Polish Collection in Dripping in Luxury ($10; nordstrom.com) for her pedicure.

You’ve never seen a braided updo as pretty as Olivia’s. Her hairstylist Justine Marjan started by prepping the star’s hair by running ghd Advanced Split End Therapy ($28; sephora.com) through her ends, and ghd’s Smooth & Finish Serum ($24; sephora.com) on the roots to boost shine. Next, the pro dried Olivia’s hair with ghd’s Air Hairdryer ($199; sephora.com) and ghd’s Ceramic Vented Radial Brush #3 ($40; sephora.com) until her strands were smooth and straight.

To create the updo, Marjan parted Olivia’s hair down the middle and pulled an inch of hair from both sides of the temple. After, she took the hair from underneath both areas and created an inside-out French braid down to the nape of the star’s hair and pinned it place. To cover the beginning of the braid, the pro released the clipped section of hair and also pinned it at the nape of Olivia’s neck. Marjan took the remaining hair, created three random strand braids, and wrapped the hair into a low bun and pinned it into place. As a final touch, Marjan spritzed hairspray all over for hold and ran a toothbrush over any flyaways for a smooth finish.

Natalie's red carpet makeup look was classically feminine thanks to bold brows and a fresh peony-pink lip. Celebrity Makeup artist Pati Dubroff used two shades in Dior's Diorshow All-in-brow 3D Long-Wear Brow Kit ($52; nordstrom.com) to build extra color and definition. As for the lips, Dubroff used Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Opéra ($35; nordstrom.com) for a base stain then lined them with Dior Rouge Dior Lipliner in New World Matte ($31; nordstrom.com) to create a custom pink shade with a touch of coral. To add some shine, the pro finshed off with a swipe of Dior Dior Addict Lipstick in Ultra Dior ($35; sephora.com).

Who says red and pink can't be worn at once? Lily's makeup is one example that sometimes beauty rules are meant to be broken. To create Lily's pastel pink eye, makeup artist Fiona Stiles didn't turn to an eyeshadow palette, but used Lancôme's Le Lipstique in Natural Mauve ($26; nordstrom.com) with Lancôme Blush Subtil in Aplum ($32; nordstrom.com) dusted over it to give her eyelid a soft wash of color. Stiles belnded the two shades by sweeping Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Pink Pearl ($21; nordstrom.com) under the actress' brows, and finished the eye look with a coat of Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara ($28; nordstrom.com) on her top lashes.

Drew radiated on the red carpet thanks to her shimmery eye makeup. Pro Debra Ferullo prepped the actress’ eyelids with FLOWER Beauty In Your Prime Ultimate Eye Primer ($13; walmart.com) to ensure the makeup held up throughout awards show night. Next, Ferullo used FLOWER Beauty’s Shimmer & Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Neutral (flowerbeauty.com), applying the darker shades to the crease and using the lighter shades on the ball of the eyelid and under the brow bone. Once the shadow was set, the pro used FLOWER Beauty’s Forever Wear Liner Long-Wear Eyeliner in Onyx ($7; walmart.com) to draw on a smudged line, and finished the look with a few coats of FLOWER Beauty’s Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara ($8; walmart.com) on the star’s top and bottom lashes.

With Sofia’s hair all pulled back, the focus was all on the eyes. Celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams turned to a tube of mascara she knew wouldn’t clump as the night went on. The pro applied CoverGirl’s So Lashy! BlastPro Mascara in Extreme Black ($9; target.com) on the actress’ lashes. “I love the So Lashy! Blast Pro Mascara in Extreme Black because I can easily apply three coats and it never gets clumpy, it’s ideal for all lash types and it’s specialized brush ball tip gets in all the hard to reach places,” McAdams said.

Zoe's soft, pretty makeup was an awards show dream come true. Makeup artist Vera Steimberg brushed a mix of the neutral and pinky-brown shades in Votre Vu's Play Quad in Nude ($42; votrevu.com) on Zoe's eyelids and traced her upper and lower lash lines with Votre Vu's Le Joli Crayon in Chocolat ($23; votrevu.com), smudging it on her top lashes to create a smoky effect. To finish the look, Steimberg finger-tapped Charlotte Tilbury's Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette ($32; nordstrom.com) on the center of the lids, added a few false lashes to her outer corners, and applied two coats of Votre Vu Eiffel Tower Mascara in Black ($24; nordstrom.com). The pro kept the ethereal vibe going by tracing Zoe's lips with Votre Vu Drawmatic Lip Liner in Naked ($21; votrevu.com), and colored them in with Votre Vu Champs-eLIPsee Lip Crayon in Spark ($24; votrevu.com). Finally she tapped Votre Vu Lip Lustre in Demure ($21; votrevu.com) to the center of Zoe's bottom lip.

Emily’s faux lob, bronze smoky eye, and canary yellow dress one solid gold combo. To create the faux short cut, celebrity hairstylist Christian Wood split the star’s hair into two sections, a top section from ear to ear and a bottom section from the ear down. Next, the pro pinned up the top section and then created a braid with the bottom section, and then pinned up the braid underneath and took down the pinned hair from the top. Since Emily was up for a dramatic red carpet look, the stylist cut her actual hair on top and at the sides to blend into the faux bob. For a perfect undone, wavy texture, Wood used Uberliss’ Titanium Flat Iron ($130; uberliss.com) to create bends and ununiformed waves.

Blake’s twisted chignon and soft makeup was a match made in red carpet heaven. The star’s pro-stylist Rod Ortega filled us in on how to recreate the look at home. After smoothing Blake’s hair into a high pony, Ortega wrapped two-inch sections of her strands around T3’s Whirl Convertible Styling Wand ($185; sephora.com) to add texture and movement to the tail. Next, he back-combed the pony for extra volume and twisted the entire pony down the head and pinned down the sides of the twist to secure it. Finally, Ortega pinned the end of the tail under the twist and spritzed L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Hold ($14; target.com) all over to hold it together.

The pro’s tips for keeping a chignon smooth in the humidity: Use a paddle brush like T3’s ($25; nordstrom.com) to calm any frizzy pieces, and used a lightweight gloss like L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Nutrigloss Shine Elixir Treatment ($6; target.com).

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy's high pony and vampy lip is one chic look we'll definitely be recreating at home. Celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips was all about glowing skin and a statement lip when creating Chrissy's look. "I felt like going in a full-on soft, nude, Game of Thrones type palette might be a little expected, not necessarily costume-y, but the whole glossy lid, rosy cheek, and a center stain on the lip. So, I wanted to veer away from that," Phillips told InStyle about the look. "I knew I wanted the color palette to bring more impact and contrast the softness of the dress to make it more modern, and then anchor the entire look with fairy-like skin."

The pro used an arsenal of La Mer skincare products to prep the star's complexion before focusing on the makeup. Phillips started by using BECCA Blacklight Color Corrector in Peach, Pistachio, and Violet ($30 each; sephora.com) to correct the complexion. Next, the pro used various shades of La Mer Soft Fluid Foundation SPF 20 ($110; nordstrom.com), alternating with her hands, makeup sponges, and brushes, to accentuate and contour Chrissy's face. To get rid of any dark circles, Phillips applied BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector ($30; sephora.com) on the under eye area, and used a trio of La Mer Skin Color de La Mer Concealer shades ($75 each; nordstrom.com) over it. To give Chrissy's complexion a luminous finish, the pro used BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Rose Gold, Topaz, and Champagne Pop ($41 each; sephora.com) on the apples of her cheeks, cupid's bow, decolletage, arms, upper crest of her forehead, and blended onto the neck. BECCA's Mineral Blush in Wild Honey, Songbird, and Nightingale ($32; sephora.com) was then dusted on with a striping brush for a natural flush. The bold look came courtesy of a mix of BECCA Beach Tint Summer Lip Souffle in Raspberry and Papaya ($24 each; sephora.com) layered over a base of BECCA Nude Liner Plump & Define Lip Pencil in Nougat ($23; sephora.com).

Evan's tousled 'do is the epitome of short hair, don't care. Inspired by Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie, celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler played with the actress' longer-on-top cut by creating a deep side part and '40s-style Marcel Wave. The pro started by applying Leonor Greyl's Serum de Soie Sublimateur ($46; nordstrom.com) on the star's damp hair to protect it from heat styling, and combed in Leonor Greyl's Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice ($46; nordstrom.com) for extra body and to help hold the curl. Once the hair was dry Butler sprayed Leonor Greyl's Voluforme ($36; nordstrom.com) throughout, and used a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron to create waves through the longer, top part of the actress' strands. Next, the pro combed through the waves to soften them, applied Leonor Greyl's Eclat Natural ($46; nordstrom.com) for shine, and created a deep side part. To finish the style, Butler smoothed her hair on the opposite side, tucked it behind her ear, and sprayed a generous dose of Leonor Greyl's Lacque Souple hairspray ($36; nordstrom.com) all over.

Next, she used Dyson’s Supersonic Dryer ($400; sephora.com) and an Ibiza Round Brush ($48; nordstrom.com) to blow-dry Nicole’s hair smooth and created a side part. To get Nicole’s undone texture, the pro used a duo of Harry Josh curling irons (dermstore.com). As for the actual half-up half-down style, Heath “Leaving a few pieces loose in the front, criss-crossed pieces in the back, pulling a piece from the left and pinning it on the right, the pulling a piece from the right and pinning on the left, maybe five pieces from each side.” Once the style was completed, she ran Leonor Greyl Eclat Natural Styling Cream ($46; nordstrom.com) through the pieces around Nicole’s face for a super smooth finish and finished by spraying Leonor Greyl Laque Souple Light to Medium Hold Hair Spray ($36; nordstrom.com) all over.

There's no denying it: We can always count on Reese for a chic red carpet beauty moment. Reese's fresh-faced look was inspired by her pastel yellow Versace gown. Celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern used Chantecaille's Pure Rosewater Mist ($66; nordstrom.com) to refresh her complexion and moisturized with a vitamin C-rich serum to lock in a luminous base. Next, the pro evened out Reese's base by applying Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation ($76; nordstrom.com) with a light hand, and used a sheer matte contouring shade to enhance the hollows of the actress' cheeks. For a soft glow, the pro blended Chantecaille Liquid Lumiere in Brilliance ($39; nordstrom.com) to Reese's cheekbones, Chantecaille Cheek Gelee in Happy ($39; nordstrom.com) on the apples of her cheeks, and a soft pastel matte blush.
