Best Beauty at the 2018 Golden Globes

Check out need-to-know Hollywood beauty secrets below! 

Caitriona Balfe

The Outlander star's glossy bun comes courtesy of a 3-minute deep treatment prior to the carpet. Hairstylist Harry Josh stated the Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock "was really a 3-minute miracle for dehydrated hair as it gave the high-wattage shine needed for the red carpet."

Issa Rae

To complete the Insecure star's up-do, natural hair-care expert Felicia Leatherwood used Alikay Naturals Moisture Rich Hair Parfait to smooth the star's hair into a ponytail, then created a double strand twist with added hair, using Latched and Hooked Braiding Hair.

Jessica Biel

To ensure that the actress did not mess up her fresh polish, manicurist Casey Herman applied Zoya Fast Drops on top of the Zoya Nail Polish in Dot.

Penelope Cruz

To prep the actress' skin, industry vet Charlotte Tilbury shared, "First, I like to multi-mask with a clay mask and a sheet mask. I then drench the skin with moisture, massaging the Lancôme Rénergie Day Cream using my angel wing technique and Tilbury-tapping [with] eye cream around the delicate eye area to ensure the makeup goes on like magic."

Michelle Pfeiffer

This star's beauty routine included probiotics. Makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen moisturized her face with the Koh Gen Do Macro Vintage Royal Massage Milk, a probiotic-rich, luxurious cream known for its anti-aging properties.

Susan Kelechi Watson

In order to achieve Susan's "bobfro," hairstylist Vernon Francois created two stranded twists with his namesake Leave~In Conditioner while the hair was wet. Once he dried, he concentrated on perfecting the ends of the hair to ensure body and volume.

Armie Hammer

After applying L'OCCITANE Cade Complete Care Moisturizer, grooming pro KC Fee added Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder to the Call Me by Your Name star's face and jawline.

Sarah Jessica Parker

After prepping the skin with Kate Somerville's Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Moisturizer + Serum, beauty pro Leslie Lopez waited 10 minutes to allow the product to absorb into the skin. After, she used Kate Somerville's, Tight'N Cryogenic Tightening Gel to firm and smooth the actress' skin.

Kendall Jenner

To achieve the model's shoulder-length style, hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons used a large curling iron mid-hairshaft to avoid full waves or curls. The result: a straight style with added volume.

Lily James

To prep Lily's skin, beauty expert Katey Denno used 5-6 drops of Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil, which features squalane oil, a plant-derived oil that some say works better than coconut-based products with its ability to control oil production in the skin.

Laura Dern

To achieve the Big Little Lies star's glowing complexion, makeup artist Gita Bass used a product that hasn't yet hit the market: the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, which launches March 2018—get excited!

Rachel Brosnahan

After completing Rachel's makeup, beauty pro Lisa Aharon dusted Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder on her forehead, chin and nose, avoiding her cheeks to amp up her glow.

Margot Robbie

Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett revealed that adding Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium to the ends of the hair sharpness and shape to the style, resulting a wavy yet structured style like Margot's.
