Emma Stone’s Golden Globes make-up had a very empowering hidden message

The all-black outfits weren't the only thing representing female solidarity last night

As promised, the majority of the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet attendees wore all black to support the Time’s Up movement, in light of the recent sexual harassment scandals.

Many stars also took to the stage and used their speeches to call for change in Hollywood, with everyone talking about Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globes speech this morning.

But the outfits weren’t the only thing that got political, as it’s emerged that some of the stars’ make-up choices were also representative of female solidarity.

In particular, Emma Stone’s make-up was a very obvious and deliberate nod to the Suffragettes, based on the movement’s colour scheme of green, white and purple. And according to her make-up artist for the night, Rachel Goodwin, it was a conscious choice.

‘It was really important to me that the make-up and the beauty I created had meaning behind it,’ she told Byrdie of Emma’s green smokey eye and purple lip combo.

‘Those were the colours [the Suffragettes] used to symbolise their efforts, and I just thought that was really special.’

Emma’s dark blackish-green eyeshadow and lipstick were both NARS, from the GlassTears palette and the limited edition Audacious Lipstick in Dominique, Byrdie reports. Goodwin also used the lipstick to add colour to Emma’s cheeks (we love a multitasking beauty product).

We think it’s safe to say the Globes have set the tone for future ceremonies, and we can expect a lot more symbolism for the remainder of awards’ season.
