The Best Beauty Looks from the 2018 SAG Awards Red Carpet
Your beauty Pinterest board is about to get a massive overhaul, or at least, it's about to be dominated by 2018 SAG Awards beauty looks. From gorgeous metallic eyes to the bold lip shades you've always wanted to try, Hollywood took the red carpet by storm with downright gorgeous hair and makeup moments. Here, we rounded up a few of our all-time favorites.
GLOW star Alison Brie walked the red carpet wearing an ‘80s-inspired, one-sleeve evening gown, but balanced out the look with a modern messy updo with twists to add effortless-looking texture. To give the hair grip before pulling it up, celebrity hairstylist Rebekah Forecast applied Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray ($38; nordstrom.com) on the roots and Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse ($39; nordstrom.com) throughout the hair. As for makeup, she chose a coral-red lipstick with a satin finish and a subtle smoky eye.
It was all about the updos at the 2018 SAG Awards. A simple side part can transform your look, and Bell demonstrated that with her slicked-back hairstyle. Before the styling began, celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho prepped the hair with a combo of Suave Professionals Natural Volume Mousse ($5; walmart.com) and R+Co Aircraft Pomade Mousse ($30; neimanmarcus.com) using a paddle brush. For makeup, the actress and host of the evening opted for glowy eyes and a simple pink lip. The first step of Bell's makeup routine was a thorough skincare regimen, though. Celebrity makeup artist Simone Almekias-Siegl applied Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating 100% Hydrogel Mask ($4; target.com) to Bell's skin to plump, hydrate, and smooth before moving onto foundation.
If you haven't invested in an eyelash serum yet, Samira Wiley's fluttery lashes will convince you to make the purchase. The actress complemented her gorgeous eye makeup with a rich berry lipstick shade, one of the season's hottest beauty trends.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross showed up at the 2018 SAG Awards wearing the ultimate red carpet beauty look—an elegant updo and crimson red lipstick. It’s a combo that stands the test of time. Want the details on the exact lip color? Celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto reached for Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Dashing 206 ($30; sephora.com).
Natalia Dyer can pull off any decade’s beauty trends. Her character Nancy made a curly bob her signature in Stranger Things, but Dyer chose to pull her hair back into a sleek and polished updo for the 2018 SAGs red carpet. Her elegant hairstyle was paired with a makeup look that was just as timeless—a precise cat eye and pink lips. To create her gorgeous eye makeup, celebrity makeup artist Kira Nasrat lined the eyes with Burt’s Bees Nourishing Eyeliner Pencil in Soft Black ($10; walmart.com), and extended the line out into a wing. Then, she coated the actress' lashes with Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mascara in Classic Black ($10; walmart.com) and the bottom lashes with Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mascara in Black Brown. Finally, she then applied the lightest shade of the Burt’s Bees Eye Shadow Trio in Shimmering Nudes ($13; burtsbees.com) over her eyelids and the middle shade in her crease.
An extreme side part, loose beach waves, and a bubblegum pink lip made Connie Britton's SAG Awards beauty look a total win. "The inspiration for Connie’s look was a relaxed wave with a 40’s flair!" said her hairstylist, Bridget Brager. The key products? Brager began by applying Herbal Essences Volume Mousse ($3; target.com) from roots to ends. Then, she lifting the hair up and away with the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dyer ($399; nordstrom.com), aiming the nozzle under her finger tips. This created the smooth, voluminous look Britton wore so well.
Yara Shahidi's colorful eyeliner is usually the focal point of her makeup look, but for the 2018 SAGs red carpet, it was all about her shiny red lip gloss. The look was actually the product of a few different beauty buys. First, makeup artist Emily Cheng lined her lips and filled them in with Chanel Precision Lip Liner in 98 Seduction ($31; chanel.com) and blended it out with a brush. Then, she mixed Chanel Rouge Allure Pirate 99 with Rouge Noir 109 on a tray and applied the mixture on the lips. Finally, she applied a dab of the pigment from Chanel Lip Balm and Powder Duo in Rosso Parthenope ($37; chanel.com) on the center of the lips and blended outwards. Finally, she finished up with Rouge Coco Gloss 772 ($30; chanel.com). She finished off her beauty moment with groomed brows, curled lashes.
To get her hair look, celebrity hairstylist Nai’vasha Johnson started by saturating damp hair from root to tip with the Taliah Waajid Green Apple and Aloe Nutrition Leave-In Conditioner ($10; naturalhair.org). Then, the pro brushed her hair with a boar bristle brush to distribute the product, and then dried the hair with a diffuser. Next, Johnson applied a quarter-size amount of Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Cream ($7; amazon.com) to define the curls before brushing the hair again.
Dakota Fanning attended the 2018 SAG Awards wearing a voluminous ballerina bun, rosy blush, silver shimmery eyeshadow, and a pink-nude lip shade. "For Dakota's look tonight, I wanted her makeup to be lush and jewel like with a lightness and ease that didn't overpower the translucence of her skin," said celebrity makeup artistErin Ayanian Monroe.
To copy Fanning's feminine metallic eyes, start by investing in the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette #767 Inflame ($62; nordstrom.com). Monroe used the luminous cinnamon tone in the crease and the outer corners of her eyes, and the pale pearl tone on her brow bones. She finished off the look with Dior Metalizer Limited Edition #068 Silver Shock ($25; nordstrom.com).
I, Tonya star Margot Robbie made her SAG Awards debut wearing her shoulder-grazing lob haircut in a natural windswept texture. "I felt like Margot’s dress resembled a beautiful dressing gown and wanted her to look like she rolled out of bed and threw it on with soft, natural hair," said Moroccanoil Celebrity Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett of the look. To achieve it, he started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment Light ($44; nordstrom.com) to her damp hair. Then, he applied a palm-sized amount of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse ($28; nordstrom.com) and combed it through with his fingers. After blow-drying with a round brush, he sprayed the last three inches of hair with water, along with the sections around the face, to create a natural air-dried wave. Finally, he diffused the hair, applied texture spray, and set the look with hairspray.
Her makeup was a testament to the fact that the monochromatic trend isn’t going anywhere, matching her rosy blush and matte pink lipstick to the soft pink color of her dress.
Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown wore the red carpet beauty look of your early aughts dreams. She pulled her hair into double buns that were each accessorized with black ribbons tied around the base and fastened into a bow. For makeup, she took a color cue from her evening gown and debuted hot pink lipstick.
The Old Hollywood waves hairstyle is one of the most quintessential red carpet beauty looks of all time. Reese Witherspoon chose the style for her SAGs appearance, along with rose-hued blush, pink lipstick, and groomed brows. The blush was actually the combo of Elizabeth Arden's Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Tearose ($27; macys.com), Ceramide Cream Blush in Honey, and Cool Glow Cheek Tint in Nectar.
The hairstyle was the creation of celebrity hairstylist Lona Vigi, who utlized a few different techniques and products to achieve the ripple, including a round brush, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($399; sephora.com), flat clips, and hairspray.
Loose, curly updos are something of a red carpet signature for Nicole Kidman. This side-parted creation featured a tousled knot secured at the nape of her neck and face-framing tendrils. She finished off her stunning look with creamy red lipstick and lots of lashes, courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern and Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Plumping Mascara ($9; target.com).
While we couldn't stop staring at Mandy Moore's curly lob, the blue eyeshadow delicately placed on the inner corners of her eyes, subtly complementing the cobalt blue hue of her dress, is what is going to make this look one of the best SAGs beauty moments of all time. To achieve the pop of color, celebrity makeup artist Jenn Streicher reached for Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Peacock ($29; nordstrom.com).
Like Lupita Nyong'o's sparkly dress, a slight metallic finish showed up in her sultry smoky eye makeup at the 2018 SAGs. And that wasn't the end of the sparkle—the actress tied everything together with a chrome lipstick shade, too. To get her lip look, celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose started with Lancôme Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing Lip Balm ($50; nordstrom.com), and then lined the lips and filled them in with Lancôme Le Lipstique in Raisinberry. Finally, he applied Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rendez-Vous ($32; sephora.com).
For her hair, celebrity hairstylist Vernon François prepped with the Leave~In Conditioner ($28; sephora.com). Then, he sprayed the Scalp Nourish~Ment Braids and Locs Spray ($24; net-a-porter.com) on her roots to soothe her scalp. Then he used his hands to contour and sculpt her hair into a side quiff and finished with U-pins to secure the style.
Curls and waves were everywhere on the SAGs red carpet, but Olivia Munn decided to style her lob in a sleek, straight, and flyaway-free look, complete with an eye-catching center part. For her makeup, she stuck with three very noticeable trends—matte pink lips, shimmery neutral shadow and natural lashes, and rosy blush. To achieve the lash look, celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta first curled and coated the lashes with mascara and then applied KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes in Little Black Dress ($7; walmart.com).
Fact: Kate Hudson's pixie cut will make you consider chopping off all your hair. Her cut now has some length on top, so she brushed it over to the side, mimicking a side-swept bang, and styled it with lots of texture. And maybe consider giving your lip gloss more playtime—Hudson rocked a pink shiny shade on the red carpet, along with lots and lots of lashes.
Here's exactly how you make a low ponytail red carpet appropriate. Lady Bird star Saoirse Ronan's pony featured wavy face-framing strands and a little volume at the crown, while her lavender eyeshadow referenced her pastel evening gown. To get the '60s-inspired hairstyle, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created a middle part and then rough-dried the crown section of the hair. After the hair was dry, he used a 1 1⁄4" curling iron to bend the front sections. Then, he backcombed the crown area to create height and pulled the hair back into a low ponytail. He set everything in place with the Virtue Finale Shaping Spray ($36; hsn.com).
