When it comes to beauty trends, we love to turn to the stars. Sure, something may look amazing on a runway or Instagram, but it's on the red carpet where we can truly see beauty looks come to life in a way that feels both wearable and glam.

The Golden Globes are the most recent event that caught our eyes. Amongst the many beauty looks that took our breath away (seriously, please view them all here) were lobs, slicked-back looks, and a cosmetics trend we're excited to wear IRL: monochrome makeup.

Now, don't think we're talking super-splashy or editorial makeup. If the Golden Globes are any indication of what's to come, subtly monochromatic makeup will be the name of the game. We're talking peachy nudes, romantic pinks, and for the fashionistas, we're seeing celebrities match their outfits to their makeup.

Curious? We thought so. Scroll down for a few of our favorite monochromatic makeup looks of the night to inspire your next outing.

Take your makeup look to new heights by matching your eyelids to your outfit — trust us — or, at least, Sheryl Lee Ralph. To achieve this dazzling eye look, makeup artist Mila Thomas used the "Aura" shade in Danessa Myrick's Lightwork IV Transcendence Palette and topped it off with the brand's Twin Flames liquid eyeshadow in "Passion" to give the lid more texture.

Soft, sweet, and elegant — the Babylon star understood the assignment. As we previously reported, "makeup artist Pati Dubroff prepped the star's skin using IMAGE skincare, then followed up with a pale pink eye, rosy cheeks, and a light red matte lip. For the star's body, the MUA used ALLEVEN Colour Shield in Pearl on her arms, shoulders, and back to keep the glow going."
