For any beauty fan, let alone a beauty editor, awards season is an exciting time. Not only does it bring a whole host of A-listers out onto the red carpet for us to fangirl over, but it also provides us with some serious beauty inspiration for the year ahead.

Tonight marks the return of the BAFTAs, and while the awards ceremony itself had many on tenterhooks, my eyes were firmly on the red carpet where A-listers from Dua Lipa to Lily Collins and Brigderton’s Charithra Chandran, all turned out some incredible beauty looks that i’ll be swiftly recreating at home.

While glowy skin, nude lips and soft colour washed eyes reigned supreme, there was also an undercurrent of moody old hollywood glamour in the form of soft waves and vampy lips courtesy of Lily Collins and The Bear’s, Ayo Edebiri. The haircut of the season, the Scandi bob, also had a red carpet moment with Florence Pugh and Charithra Chandran both opting for the cool girl cut. My favourite look however has to be Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who ahead of performing at the awards show, took to the red carpet with a swishy high pony and a hot pink smokey eye, proving breaking the beauty mould can pay off. 

While I can wax lyrical about these beauty looks all night, I’m sure by now you’re shouting at your screen begging me to see them. So without further ado, here are the best beauty looks from the 2024 BAFTAs...

1. Alison Oliver

Alison's hairstylist Patrick Wilson created a soft wet look bob using ghd products. I spoke to him exclusively following the ceremony to find out just how he achieved the look:

2. Lily Collins

It's undeniable that's Lily's vampy lip is the real star of the show with this look. Paired with a soft shimmery eye, flushed cheek and sweeping soft waves, she looks every bit the old Hollywood dream.

3. Charithra Chandran

Bridgerton's Charithra Chandran said goodbye to her usual long locks opting for a choppy fringe and chin skimming bob instead. I'm also obsessed with her brick red lip, which her makeup artist Kenneth Soh revelled is Lancôme's L'Absolu Rouge Drama Matte Lipstick in Dramatised Nude.

4. Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Sophie's pop of pink eyeshadow was a breath of fresh air on the red carpet and just epitomises the fun she's been having since her 00's hit Murder on the Dancefloor came back into our lives in Saltburn.

5. Margot Robbie

Margot's been channelling her inner Barbie for a while now and her soft glam look on the BAFTAs red carpet was no different. While we aren't sure on the exact products used just yet, Margot's makeup artist Pati Dubroff, is a Chanel beauty makeup artist so we can guarantee she'll owe her glam to the brand.

6. Ayo Edebiri

With rosy brown shades swept across both her eyes and lips, The Bear's Ayo Edebiri, also tapped into the vampy beauty trend on the red carpet. Created using Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Dreams Luxury Palette alongside the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Rose to Fame, the look perfectly balances soft pink tones with more moody browns. For her hair, Ayo's stylist James Catalano, used a selection of got2b products to create a 60's glam look - perfection!

7. Dua Lipa

I'm a big fan of Dua Lipa's cherry cola toned locks so I'm especially happy to see she's still rocking them this awards season. So as not to overshadow her look, she kept her makeup look minimal opting for a delicate contour and matte nude lipstick. 

8. Sophie Wilde

If you don't know newcomer Sophie Wilde yet, it's time to get to know. Nominated for BAFTA's rising star award, she's one to watch in the beauty stakes as much as on our screens. Just take her dramatic feline flick and stunning slicked hair as proof.

9. Phoebe Dynevor

Taking glazed doughnut skin to a whole new level, Phoebe Dynevor looked good enough to eat with fresh glowing skin and a sleek slicked back bun.

10. Florence Pugh

Last year, beauty editor Shannon Lawlor proudly shared Florence Pugh never turned out a beauty look she didn't like. I'm glad to say this year I feel no different, from her slicked back bob to peachy toned makeup, it's another winner.

11. Sheila Atim

Ombre lips have been a big hit on Tik Tok as of late and now it seems they've taken to the red carpet too, courtesy of actress Sheila Atim. Her makeup artist James Molloy described the look as "impeccable skin with a rust orange lip" and we have to agree. 

12. Naomi Campbell

The queen of the cat eye, Naomi turned out another standout beauty look for the BAFTAs. Paired with a soft blush and a barely there lip, the effect was effortlessly mesmerising. 

13. Emily Blunt

Emily asked makeup artist Jenn Streicher to create a "modern Bardot inspired look" and I have to say she achieved it. Nodding to the 60s icon, her look feels classic with a twist thanks to the glowing skin and pretty peach toned lip.

14. Emma Stone

While many opted for darker, more moodier beauty looks at this years BAFTAs, there was definitely an undercurrent of softer peach toned looks, like this one worn by Emma Stone, that I predict will be huge come Spring.
