We might only be ten days into 2023 but it's already time to welcome in awards season. Last night, things kicked off with the 80th annual Golden Globe Awards. And while Jennifer Coolidge's acceptance speech, Jerrod Carmichael's jokes and Angela Bassett's emotional win are making headlines, as a beauty editor, I'm way more interesting in the 2023 Golden Globes beauty looks.

Historically, I find the beauty looks at awards ceremonies to be a little, well, stale. But 2023's Golden Globes looks were anything but. In fact, I'd say last night's looks were amongst some of my favourite red-carpet beauty moments ever. From Jenna Ortega's shag hairstyle and Margot's subtle pink make-up look to Lily James's Hollywood glow and Ayo Adebri stunning nude lipstick—I was hooked on the content. 

I was so hooked, in fact, that I stayed up practically all night scrolling Instagram. I spent hours doing some digging into what make-up artists and hair stylists were behind each celeb's looks—and my research paid off. What I found was a pretty extensive list of each product used for each look.

And because I'm not much of a gatekeeper (I'd be a terrible beauty editor if I was), I figured I'd share the fruits of my labour with you all. So here goes, a top-line overview of the exact beauty products featured in the 2023 Golden Globe beauty looks...

Jenna Ortega

As far as I'm concerned, Jenna Ortega won the red carpet last night. She won. That's it. Everything from her shaggy wolf cut to her triple-lined eye was sheer perfection. In fact, I'd say that approximately 40% of my time last night was taken up with trying to get to the bottom of this look.

Miraculously, I've received some DMs from Ortega's make-up artist, Vincent Oquendo, with some details. "I wanted to do something she had never done before, but I wanted it to look like her and not have the make-up take over her look," he says. "I had all of these images of Sophia Loren and we felt really attracted to this triple liner look. I started by using a pale ivory, matte eyeshadow all over her lid and created the contour in her crease using warm brown colours."

And as for those super-long lashes? "I gave her eyelashes a really good curl and started to layer one of two mascaras to create the very full lash look before I even started applying falsies," he reveals. "Then I layered brown gel eyeliner on the top and bottom and set it with a jet-black liquid liner to make it pop." To finish off the lashes, he "cut a strip lash in half, applying it to her outer corner to use it as the bones". Single-flare individual lashes were applied "generously to both the top and bottom lashes.

When it came to Ortega's skin, Oquendo wanted to keep things fresh and natural. "I just used a very light skin tint and applied it softly with a fluffy brush, setting it with a translucent loose powder." To create some dimension, he then applied contour. "I sculpted her cheekbones with contour powder, keeping most of the colour on the hollow of her cheekbones as an accept," he says. The look was finished off with a tangerine-shade blush applied primarily to contours and swept to the apples of the cheeks. A masterpiece.

For Ortega's hair, hairstylist David Stanwell shared a quick snap of the hair products on his Instagram story—thank me later.

Margot Robbie

What is a red carpet without a stunning beauty look from Margot Robbie? Embracing various shades of Barbie pink, Margot's make-up was healthy-looking, lit-from-within brilliance. Her long-time make-up artist, Pati Dubroff came through with the product details.

As a Chanel ambassador, it's needless to say Robbie's entire make-up look came courtesy of Chanel products (most notably that subtly brilliant blush eye). However, Dubroff also shared some products she used for Robbie's skin prep, including a high-tech vitamin C serum.

Jessica Chastain

If you want my opinion, no one nails old-school Hollywood glamour quite like Jessica Chastain. And when I think of old-school Hollywood glamour there's only one beauty brand that comes to mind. Yep, Chastain's make-up look was served by make-up artist Kristofer Buckle using an exclusively Charlotte Tilbury kit.

The moment? Chastain's highlight was achieved using the brand's brand-new Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter. Trust me, I've been testing this product out for the last few days, and it's good.

Letitia Wright

Leitita Wright's glow is, frankly, out of this world. This is one of those beauty looks that radiates health—and that isn't something easily achieved with make-up alone. Make-up artist Grace Pae revealed on her Instagram that Wright's beauty look required some very impressive skincare prep, including a high-tech LED light mask and Augustinus Bader's The Rich Cream.

The stand out product, for me, is Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer, helping to achieve that natural-looking but smooth-as-butter complexion.

Anya Taylor-Joy

I wasn't surprised to see that Anya Taylor-Joy's make-up look came courtesy of her go-to make-up artist, Georgie Eisdell, using Dior Beauty. One of the first Golden Globes posts I came across last night was a picture of Eisdell applying a Dior lipstick to Taylor-Joy—a stunning pinky-nude housed in a houndstooth case. The bad news? I can't find it anywhere online in the correct shade.

The good news, however, is that I did find the exact eyeshadow palette used. You win some, you lose some.

Selena Gomez

When I saw that Selena Gomez's go-to make-up artist, Hung Vanngo, posted about skincare prep for one of his 'clients' yesterday, I had a feeling it was going to be Gomez. Therefore, I spent the entire night refreshing Vanngo's Instagram page waiting for him to share more details—and he didn't disappoint.

After confirming his client was in fact Gomez, I did some more digging. Skincare prep came via Ole Henriksen products, while he executed the rest of the look with Gomez-founded Rare Beauty products. My best find? I uncovered the duo of products that delivered her impressively bright eyes.

Ayo Adebri

From the moment I saw Ayo Adebri's make-up look on Instagram I needed to know what the lip product was. Creamy, matte and velvety all at once, it was a real stunner. Thankfully, make-up artist Tasha Reiko Brown revealed the exact details—it's Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in 61 Intuitive. 

She also revealed some of the backstage tools she turns to for such looks, including a very nifty eyelash comb.

You can thank me later.

Lily James

Considering Lily James is one of the faces of Charlotte Tilbury, I didn't need confirmation that her Golden Globes make-up look was going to feature the brand heavily. Make-up artist Nina Park achieved James's look with an array of Tilbury products (including the aforementioned, all-new highlighter). Most notably, she used Charlotte's Healthy Skin Foundation for James's cushiony complexion.
