The Golden Globes Prove These Are 2021's HOTTEST Beauty Trends

Beauty News


It’s official: award season has begun with the 78th Golden Globes and TBH, we couldn’t be more excited. After a year of no red carpets, it was a feast for our eyes. Despite the fact that the event was bi-coastal for the first time on record, and many guests had to Zoom in from their living room, the glam squads came out in full force. There was just the right amount of old Hollywood glamour mixed with iconic beauty moments, and of course, the odd programming hiccup. Case in point: when Daniel Kaluuya got accidentally muted on Zoom… Is there anything more 2020 than that?

As for the aforementioned beauty moments, they confirmed our predicted 2021 beauty trends are here to stay. From red vinyl lipstick to glossy locks, here are some of 2021’s most highly anticipated beauty trends showcased by Hollywood A-listers.

Red Vinyl Lips

Despite the fact that masks were mandatory for the majority of the night, when actors walked the red carpet celebs like Laverne Cox and Margot Robbie sported a sexy, red vinyl lip. Red lipstick is predicted to be a huge trend this year and was seen at all the SS21 shows during fashion month. Models at Max Mara and Tom Ford slayed rich red lips, proving that it’s a timeless look that’ll never go out of fashion. However, the glossy finish adds a modern edge, and needless to say, we’re obsessed.

We love this makeup look on Margot Robbie created by her go-to makeup artist Pati Dubroff. The simple, understated eye makeup allows the lip to take center stage.

French girl beauty is yet another trend predicted to be HUGE this year after the popularity of the Netflix series, Emily in Paris. This classic pairing of a red lip and lashings of mascara is très chic!

Laverne Cox always comes through during award season, and this look is no exception. We love the berry undertones to the red lip. And can we take a moment to appreciate that hair?

Since the start of the pandemic, our everyday makeup routine has gone from work-glam to skinimalist, so it’s safe to assume that we’d see a lot of natural, soft looks this season too.

Monochromatic pink makeup looks were seen throughout the night. This look on Elle Fanning created by Erin Ayanian Monroe is giving us Grace Kelly vibes and we’re SO into it!

This Is Us actress Susan Kelechi Watson has made it onto all of the best-dressed lists and her glam didn’t fall short either. This pink lip and soft smokey eye look is breathtaking. We also have to mention her stunning blowout created by curl king Vernon François. Overall, an iconic look.

The Buzz Cut

2020 saw the pixie cut and rounded fro trending hard, and this year we’re taking it even shorter with the buzz cut. We have to say, no one slays a buzz cut like Tiffany Haddish… Other than Cynthia Erivo!

This fierce icy buzz cut is straight fire and effortlessly showcases Cynthia’s stunning bone structure.

Glowing Skin

Skin is taking center stage now more than ever before, and that was evident with Kaley’s look. She kept the whole vibe very simple and let her golden glow do the talking.

Glossy, Hollywood Waves

High gloss hair is one of the sexiest hair trends that all the A-listers are loving RN, so we knew we’d see it on the red carpet soon enough. Just as the name suggests, high gloss hair is super glossy, almost glass-like hair. For the awards show, it was teamed with classic Hollywood waves, taking the level of glam to new heights. Check out how to achieve this look here.

Another show-stopping beauty look that garnered rave reviews from fashion and beauty lovers was Anya Taylor-Joy in Dior. Her ultra-long sleek locks accented her emerald green dress perfectly.

According to Amanda, her daughter wanted to get involved and get her ready for the Globes. However, she left it to her glam squad to create this stunning hairstyle.
