Award-worthy beauty looks to try in 2018

We've been counting down the days for awards season to officially kick off, and it’s nearly time for the star-studded Golden Globes 2018 to raise the bar in the beauty department. So, what better time to be inspired by some of the nominee’s iconic beauty looks?

Let’s start from the top: eyes are the windows to your soul, so quite rightly they should have the wow factor. Take Mary J Blige, star of Mudbound: she rocks subtle golden hues to create effortlessly smokey eyes. To copy her natural-looking shimmery lids, we’re currently lusting over the Bright Quartet Baked Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Warm Natural Tones, £12.50, Kiko Milano. It’s a versatile palette that suits all eye colours to really make your peepers pop. Want to add that extra flutter to perk up your look? Invest in the MAC 33 Lash, £11.50, MAC.

We all know how important a good skincare regime is so let’s take a leaf out of Big Little Lies’ Zoe Kravitz’s book. To achieve her dewy glow, cleanse and buff away any dry, dull looking skin – Clarins Gentle Refining Exfoliating Cream£26, Boots, does a bang-up job. This lightweight cream unblocks pores and smoothes the skin’s surface leaving you prepped and primed. And for removing your makeup after a long day? Use Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Recovery Complex II 30ml, £53, Boots. It helps replenish your face overnight, leaving you with visibly restored skin by morning.

A slick of well-applied lippy is a great way to look groomed with minimum effort. We’re big fans of Molly’s Game star Jessica Chastain’s bright and bold collection. A fail-safe red lipstick that’s spot on for all skin tones is Dior Rouge Dior Double Rouge, £27.50, Boots. This lightweight lipstick glides on easily and you can play around with the buildable coverage to your liking. For an everyday nude, give MAC Lipstick in Easy Babe, £16.50, MAC, a try. Add sumptuous, hydrating colour to your pout in one stroke – and thanks to its enriching moisturising properties, it’ll leave lips soft and defined. Style yourself effortlessly with Style Seeker – a brand new feature on the Union Square PLUS app. See it. Snap it. Own it.
