Critics’ Choice Awards 2021: The Best Hair and Makeup Looks of the Night
Despite the 2021 Critics’ Choice Awards looking different than in years past due to the pandemic, it’s still proving to be an event to remember — and a stylish one no less. Taye Diggs is on hosting duties for the third time, joined by a slew of A-list presenters, including Eva Longoria, Angela Bassett, and Chelsea Handler, to name just a few.
Although most presenters and nominees attended the ceremony virtually, they still showed up in some seriously stunning ensembles. And, as always, their glam squads brought their A-games on hair and makeup, too. While stars like Carey Mulligan, Gillian Anderson, and Angela Bassett opted for minimal (yet still super-glamorous) hair and makeup, Yara Shahidi and Uzo Aduba went for bold statement looks that we’ll be thinking about for months to come.
Now, without further ado, find some of our favorite hair and makeup moments from the night — including exclusive details and products used.
The Black-ish actor presented at the award show wearing a sultry purple smoky eye and an ornate updo with light blue fabric woven throughout.
Maria Bakalova took home the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and she did so wearing a gorgeous sparkly headband, bushy brows, terracotta eye shadow, and a soft wing to accentuate her eyes. She tied it all together with a nude peachy lip.
The Judas and the Black Messiah actor stepped out with rhinestone-studded hair, a flawless cat-eye, and a soft mocha lip.
The Better Call Saul beauty matched her lip to her red dress for a timeless monochromatic feel. She also opted for a subtle black wing to define her bright blue eyes.
