Orange eyeshadow might seem intimidating, but Williams demonstrates how to subtly wear the bold shade with a sheer wash of a creamsicle shadow across her lids. A loose, twisted updo completed her look. To give her hair more volume, Williams's hairstylist applied TRESemme's TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse ($5; target.com) to her roots when they were still damp.

A top knot and red lip is a classic red carpet hair and makeup combo. Case in point: Alison Brie's Audrey Hepburn-inspired beauty look. Since Brie has an '80s perm and a lot of choppy layers right now for her role in GLOW, Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler prepped the actress' damp hair by misting it with Leonor Greyl's Spray Structure Naturelle ($42; nordstrom.com) to give her a smooth blowout before pulling Brie's hair into a high bun.

Dakota Johnson

Last year, the stars on the red carpet taught us that matching your makeup is always a good idea. It looks like the same rule is going to apply in 2018, too. Mandy Moore matched her red lipstick to the sash around the waist of her black gown. She pulled her hair back into a sleek updo that hit at the nape of her neck.

Jessica Chastain

Celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora applied Goldwell's StyleSign Curly Twist Around Curl Styling Spray (goldwell.us for salons) to her damp hair to help form waves, and used T3's SinglePass Curl Iron with the 1.25-inch barrel ($85; sephora.com) on her whole head to create the curls.

When worn with a retro-inspired updo, Jessica Biel's bubblegum pink lipstick gave her beauty look an unexpected twist. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel used AQUIS' quick-dry Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel ($35; sephora.com) to prep her hair and Virtue's Polish Un-Frizz Cream ($40; virtuelabs.com) to smooth and condition it before creating the updo.

Emma Stone

Celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak wanted the actress' twisted updo to look effortless, but still elegant like her Louis Vuitton gown. Since she gave the style a swept up finish, she spritzed her fingers with Living Proof Control Hairspray ($26; sephora.com) and pinched any sections where there were flyways. "This keeps flyaways under control, but also adds definition and dimension to the look," she told InStyle.

Saoirse Ronan

The actress nailed two major hair trends with her platinum twisted updo. She kept her makeup clean and simple with groomed brows and rosy-pink lipstick. Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel used ghd's limited-edition Gold 18K Styler (ghdhair.com) to add shape to her hair so that her updo had more texture. While you won't be able to get your hands on the fancy flat iron the pro used, ghd is releasing a black version with the same technology as the special gold edition on February 1st.

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown's red carpet beauty look is another example of how the actress is the coolest 13-year-old we'll never be. She wore her grown-out buzz cut in a braided top knot and exaggerated winged eyeliner on her eyes. The Stranger Things star's makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan used Avon's True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Blackest Black ($5; avon.com) on her upper lash line.

For the Golden Globes, she parted her shoulder-grazing hair off to the side and wore it in loose waves. A swipe of bright berry lipstick and a fresh complexion completed her makeup. Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff mixed Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lip Colours in La Sensuelle and La Romanesque ($37 each; chanel.com) for the perfect custom shade.
