    Last night’s Golden Globes saw an array of beauty looks, from noteworthy makeup to unique hairstyles. So without further ado, here’s who would win a Golden Globe for beauty in our eyes…

    Lady Gaga for most ‘woah’ moment

    Rex Features

    With A Star Is Born up for pretty much every award going throughout awards season, she was bound to make an impact on the red carpet. But blue hair? Who’d have thought it. Well, truthfully, it worked and as ever, Gaga nailed it.

    Lupita Nyong’o for best ‘cool girl’ makeup

    Rex Features

    Lupita is known for her experimental take on beauty, using awards ceremonies to show off her fun side. Electric blue mascara and liner at the Golden Globes, for example? We’d expect no less.

    Thandie Newton for best ever hair

    Rex Features

    We were crushing hard on Thandie Newton and her beautiful curls. She paired her hair with super flattering smoky eye makeup and a neutral lip shade. Perfection.

    Amber Heard for best throwback vintage hair

    Rex Features

    Surely we can’t be the only ones getting serious retro Shakespeare in Love vibes from Amber’s ‘do? We’re not sure the inspiration here, but if there were an award for the best hair-from-another-era look, she would win.

    Judy Greer for most creative use of accessories

    Rex Features

    While we’re sure Carrie Bradshaw would be appalled, we kinda dig Judy Greer’s bold choice of hair accessory: the humble scrunchie.

    Lucy Boynton for most copy-able bob

    Rex Features

    Looking for a new cut for 2019? Lucy Boynton’s bob has garnered more than a few fans. Choppy, sharp and painfully cool, take this pic to your hair stylist.

    Emily Blunt for most elaborate updo

    Rex Features

    A high class, luxury event like the Golden Globes calls for a boujee updo, and this year Emily Blunt nailed it. Practically perfect in every way, Mary Poppins would be proud.

    Kate Mara for most ‘high fashuuun’ look

    Rex Features

    Kate Mara’s fiddly-looking updo, bold pout and impressive cheekbones screamed one thing: FASHUUUUN.

    Saoirse Ronan for best brave lip

    Rex Features
