They say the Screen Actors Guild Awards often help clarify the Oscar picture, as Hollywood’s best and brightest are judged by a panel of their peers. If that’s the case, then February 24 should be a big night for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Argo, and strapless floor-length gowns. On the beauty front, the show also seemed to indicate an uptick in side-parted glam waves, neutral lips, and sultry smoky eyes, although there were a few surprises to speak of. Below, we’ve outlined our favorite hair and makeup moments from last night’s festivities and made things a little interesting with some friendly competition. Who do you think won best in beauty?
Statement Lips: January Jones vs. Claire Danes
And the Actor goes to…Claire Danes
January Jones gets points for the Bowie-caliber pompadour that she paired with her precisely lined crimson mouth, but Claire Danes wins this category with a completely out-of-the-box plum-stained pout that bordered on chocolate brown courtesy of a layering effort of Laura Mercier Lip Pencils in Coffee Bean and Deep Wine. Fall’s embrace of the mulberry mouth may be losing steam, but don’t be surprised if Danes’ take on the color inspires a whole new crop of followers.
A Cut Above: Freida Pinto vs. Marion Cotillard
And the Actor goes to…Marion Cotillard
Short cuts have been the big story on the runway and red carpet of late, and the SAGs had a few moments of shear genius to speak of, right on cue. Freida Pinto showed off the beautiful cowl-neck of her lilac Roland Mouret gown with a rolled-under bob that we actually had to do a double take to determine if it was faux or real. There was no such confusion with Marion Cotillard’s freshly chopped locks, however. Worn with a deep side part and featuring slightly asymmetrical front panels, Cotillard’s cut wasn’t just the best short story of the night, it was one of its finest beauty moments, period.
As we count down to the Golden Globes—a ceremony that, in all of its booze-fueled glory, kick-starts awards season—many have begun to formulate their own predictions for who will occupy the winner’s circle in both the acting and the just as highly contested style categories. Before we look forward, however, we thought it would be far more informative to peer back at a dozen of this year’s female nominees to decide which of their former Golden Globes cameos is the most memorable. And so, without further ado, allow us to present the Golden Globes Beauty Hall of Fame, which will be welcoming a new class this Sunday. Click here for a slideshow.
EXCLUSIVE: You Can Take It With You: Clutch-Sized Beauty Essentials For The Golden Globes And Beyond-------
At last year’s Golden Globes, something unusual happened that completely usurped the show’s typical beauty highlights. After the ceremony began and the gaggle of gowns, chignons, and painted pouts were seated, the camera panned to Angelina Jolie, who, at that very moment, rifled through her bag, produced a crystalline pink lip gloss, and proceeded to apply it at will. The Twitterverse erupted, and within a matter of hours, it was revealed that Angie was a fan of Chantecaille’s Brilliant Gloss in Love—so much so that she brought it in her clutch for periodic touch-ups throughout the evening. At the 69th annual Golden Globes last night, there were no such live, on-screen beauty moments to speak of, although we couldn’t quell the burning desire to know just what the nominees had packed in their purses. So, we did what any good reporter would do: We asked their makeup artists. Here, in a Style.com exclusive, face-painting stars like Clarins celebrity beauty artist Pati Dubroff and global artistry director and brand ambassador for Laura Mercier Matin Maulawizada tell us the single item they sent A-listers like Julianne Moore and Claire Danes down the red carpet with. Because you never know when unnecessary shine or a faded statement lip could ruin your moment in the spotlight.

And so, the truth comes out. Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong star, mother of two, and poster child for the macrobiotic diet, revealed to Conan O’Brien that she not only owns a deep fryer but uses it all the time. “Fried food is my weakness. I don’t have a sweet tooth,” she says. Us too! [Daily Mail]
Speaking of full disclosure—or lack thereof—Claire Danes’ Latisse spokesperson gig may be in jeopardy as a “source” has come forward claiming that the actress, whose lashes are long and lethal, has severe hyperpigmentation from the prescription growth serum. Bad for business. [NYP]

“I’m from Afghanistan and I have six sisters, so by default, I had to become a feminist,” makeup artist Matin Maulawizada joked last night at the Longchamps store in Soho, where he was hosting a fundraiser for his charity, Afghan Hands. Started in 2004, the nonprofit empowers Afghan women often widowed by the war by enabling them to produce handmade scarves and shawls and work towards financial independence. “I have amassed a disturbing number of scarves,” Claire Danes, one of the evening’s other hosts, divulged of the beautiful, homespun accessories on display. Danes was joined at the podium by actress and fellow Maulawizada devotee Cynthia Nixon. “He is a very talented makeup artist,” Nixon said of the face painter, who also primps Meryl Streep, among other Hollywood A-listers. “But this is his real passion.”
Ryan McGinness, Jessica Seinfeld, and Kelly Killoren Bensimon also showed up for the Orlane-sponsored event, where Benjamin Doller of Sotheby’s auctioned off posh trips to Big Sur’s Post Ranch Inn and L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills. Orlane’s late vice president Naz Toloui was the first board member of Afghan Hands, and the French skincare brand was on hand to provide gift bags and introduce the latest edition to its line, Crème Royale Neck and Décolleté. “It’s a happy merging of altruism and materialism,” Danes said of supporting the cause—which she’ll be doing more of come next year. Both she and her mother (a textile designer by trade) and Nixon and her daughter will be creating designs for the initiative.
