So, we reached out to the hair and makeup artists who created the stars' looks to get the scoop.

Easy and effortless was the mood Jennifer Garner's look. The actress sported a voluminous blowout with no-makeup makeup to present her go-to stylist Adir Abergel with the award for Hairstylist of the Year.
"I was inspired by Jen herself and her natural beauty," says Abergel. "I wanted Jen to look soft, sexy and feminine so we went with a perfectly voluminous undone blowout." He built body in the star's hair by prepping it with Virtue Labs Volumizing Mousse and Volumizing Primer on the roots.
There's endless options when it comes to doing a smoky eye. But when in doubt, match the eyeshadow shades to your outfit — which is exactly what makeup artist Sheika Daley did when creating Zendaya's eye glam. Daley used the grey shades from Lancôme's Hypnose 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey Chic to bring out the ornate details of the star's outfit.
Hairstylist Larry Sims pulled Zendaya's hair back to keep the focus all on her eyes.
The star kept things pretty and simple with loose waves and a swipe of red lipstick.
D'Arcy Carden's soft raspberry lip perfectly complemented her dreamy colorful dress. The Good Place star's makeup artist Vanessa Scali applied Chanel's Rouge Allure Rebelle 172 Lipstick straight from the tube and had Carden press it into her lips with her fingertip. Then, she used a clean lipstick brush to blend the color to the edges of the lips. "This fills the lips with color and gives you a defined, yet soft edge," Scali says.
As for Carden's hair, she just cut it into a lob, so hairstylist Dimitri Giannetos highlighted her new length. "I wanted to keep it pretty simple, but with a sexy vibe," he tells InStyle. He added a few pieces of Hidden Crown hair extensions for extra body, and added bends with a ghd flat iron.
The Man of Style's slicked-back hair was one of the best grooming moments of the night.
Ellen Pompeo's undone waves and soft, glowy makeup is easy, effortless, and just so damn pretty. Hairstylist Ryan Richman took a flat iron to the star's hair to create the tousled waves. "I created an S-shaped wave by working my Rusk flat iron up and down as I moved down the section of hair," he tells InStyle. "I finished with Kérastase Lacque Coutoure Hairspray."
Makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen kept the soft, romantic vibe going by giving Pompeo glowy apricot-flushed cheeks with Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Blush in Persimmon. A swipe of Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 in JK Magic, a coral shade, tied the look together.
Adir Abergel may know a thing or two about hair (he took home the award for Hairstylist of the Year), but we'd love to know his skincare secrets.
When the colors of your dress are as good as KiKi Layne's fuchsia and violet Kate Spade gown, it calls for a matchy-matchy makeup moment. The Style Star winner's makeup artist Rebekah Aladdin reached for the shades in the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette to give Layne a plum smoky eye with a "poppin' pink center."
The violet headband hairstylist Larry Sims added to her faux locs updo tied the whole look together.
The Advocate of the Year's hair and makeup look consisted of fluttery lashes and a loose updo, complete with a wavy tendril. Turlington's makeup artist Pati Dubroff used two different shades of mascara for a subtle pop of color. She applied Maybelline purple Snapscara on the inner and center lashes and Maybelline black Lash Sensational Mascara on the outer corners.
Law Roach never fails to shut down the red carpet, whether its the looks the Stylist of Year has put together for celebs like Zendaya and Jameela Jamil or his own outfits. For the InStyle Awards, he accessorized his outfit with clear, radiant skin.
On or off the field, U.S. women's soccer star Alex Morgan's ponytail always looks amazing. As for her makeup, Morgan went with tightline eyeliner and a pink satin lipstick.
To get full-bodied waves, Morgan's hairstylist Cortney Ajamian backcombed each section of the ponytail before curling it. "Backcomb each section, working from bottom to top," she says. "Curl all sections in the same direction, and spray each curl with hairspray, working from bottom up for added hold.
Kate & Laura Mulleavy
The inspiration behind Designer of the Year winners Kate and Laura Mulleavy's beauty look? Rodarte, of course. The sisters' hairstylist Caile Noble used Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray to create their soft, effortless waves.
Both sisters are fans of a defined smoky eye a rosy lip, so NARS Creative Director Uzo gave Kate a copper eye using NARS Single Eyeshadow in Guayaquil and NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow in Pointe Noire, a shimmery red. Laura's rosy-plum lip came courtesy of a trip of NARS lip products. Uzo defined the lips with the plum Marnie Precision Lip Liner, stained the entire lip with Powermatte Lip Pigment in Walk This Way, and layered the brand's Lipstick in Damaged over top.
"Amandla loves a liner and for this look we wanted to do a soft smoky number," says the star's makeup artist Kali Kennedy. She used a few shades from Fenty Beauty's Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette to create the shape of the wing and buff it out. Then, she went in with Fenty Beauty's Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner to create definition.
"Amandla and I both love box braids and experimenting with color," says the star's hairstylist Lacy Redway. "We kept her braids in the jewel tone family and customized a different variation in colors on each braid." Redway treated her scalp with Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine and laid down any flyaways with Nexxus Volumizing Mousse.
For anyone still doubting whether Augustinus Bader's The Cream lives up to the hype, just look at Amber Valletta's super glowy skin. Her makeup artist Holly Silius prepped the supermodel's skin with the cult-favorite moisturizer. "It gives great hold for makeup without becoming too dewy and hydrates the skin for the whole evening," she says. "I also used The Rich Cream on her body to firm and tone, spending more time massaging the cream in will increase blood flow."
Kirsten Dunst's hairstylist Bryce Scarlett leaned into the romantic vibe of the star's Rodarte gown by pairing it with loose, soft waves. The Moroccanoil ambassador prepped Dunst's hair with the brand's Volumizing Mousse, and finished the look off with a spritz of the Luminous Hair Spray for extra shine and hold.
NARS Creative Director Uzo played up Dunst's porcelain skin with peachy-pink cheeks and a matching lip. She did just that by swiping NARS Multiple in Copacabana, a shimmery champagne cream, along Dunst's cheekbones and the apples of her cheeks, followed by NARS Orgasm Blush on her cheekbones. NARS Lipstick in Chelsea Girls complimented her flushed cheeks.
Considering the star was honored with the Icon of the Year award, it's fitting that her makeup artist Karen Kawahara looked to superheroes as inspiration for the star's look. "I felt the dress had a 60’s vibe, but my inspiration was Emmy Peel from The Avengers, she tells InStyle. "I wanted big eyes and lashes."
To achieve this, Kawahara swiped silver Chanel cream shadow on the inner corner and lid, and smudged more of the product in grey on the upper lid and under the eye. She finished the look of with lots of mascara.
