Wispy twists, structured buns, and nape-of-the-neck ponytails were all choice ‘dos last night, probably because everyone had some serious earring bling to showcase (boy, that Lorraine Schwartz sure was busy this year, huh?) Young Hollywood embraced the updo-and-chandelier trend, with perky blondes Amanda Seyfried and Evan Rachel Wood showing off their sparkle, and Miss Golden Globes herself, Rumer Willis, rocking some serious rocks with her tendril-laced red twist. Debra Messing’s messy pony helped her show off her emerald-and-diamond drops, while Eva Longoria displayed leafy diamond clusters framed by a tight bun.

Mid-century-set nominees Mad Men and Revolutionary Road had a big impact on Red Carpet makeup at the Golden Globes, with a return to classic black liner and matte lips. Many starlets eschewed the glittery and the glossy in favor of a return to a look that’s worked for decades. Small screen sirens Jennifer Morrison (who was also right on target with the breakout hair trend) and Jenna Fischer perfected top-lid-only liner with just a hint of a cat-eyed wing, while Anne Hathaway and Christina Applegate took a turn for the traditional with creamy red lips.
Get the Look: Sparkle and shine are out, while good old fashioned lipstick in deep matte reds, like Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor in Red Premiere ($27) and Lorac Cream Lipstick in Crush ($18.50), are in. As far as liner goes, the thinner the brush the better. Get the most control over your liquid liner with Make Up For Ever’s Waterproof Eyeliner with a wisp-thin brush ($21).
