If you could only choose one high-profile to attend, there’s a case for making it the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards. Held annually in celebration of the year’s top acting performances, the awards double as an opportunity for Hollywood’s biggest talents to let their hair down — oftentimes literally. The 2023 SAG Awards’ best beauty looks feel like representations of the stars themselves, and the result is a fun-filled red carpet that counts just as many experimental moments as classically glamorous ones.

Though the carpet’s just barely underway, early arrivals like Sheryl Lee Ralph and Cara Delevingne are setting the opulent tone for evening, going for dramatic makeup finishes but forever-classic — and extremely polished — hairstyles. Danielle Deadwyler’s delicate pink makeup and braided bun turn up the romance, always a welcome element on any red carpet. Already expected to be one of spring’s top makeup trends, the pink shades are a shortcut to radiance. Meanwhile, Haley Lu Richardson’s vinyl-finish lipstick adds flair to a classic, especially when accented by a slicked bun and just enough rosy blush. Ahead, the very best beauty looks of the 2023 SAG awards — so far. Check back in for more hair, makeup, and nails as the stars continue to arrive.

Expect to see pearly eyeshadow skyrocket in popularity thanks to Ortega’s SAG Awards look. The shimmery shade highlights her long lashes and the diamonds around her neck, while her peach-tinted lipstick and rich hair color bring plenty of warmth.

A thick, laser-precise cat-eye and coral lipstick make Yeoh’s red carpet look one of the evening’s prettiest. While her makeup adds warmth and vibrance, her elegant, bang-accented ponytail allows for focus on that Schiaparelli Couture gown.

Regal is the only way to describe Bassett’s luminous look at the 2023 SAG Awards. Her long, voluminous curls — styled with Olivia Garden tools — are so defined and full, while her creamy blush and soft brown eyeshadow blend beautifully.

Always the picture of sophistication, Davis’ matte red lipstick and deeply side-parted curly bob perfectly embody the evening’s tone.

Poppy-red nails and lips illuminate Blunt’s SAG Awards look, made all the cooler by minimal eye makeup and loose, relaxed bends through her hair. Using Goldwell products and VARIS tools, celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves nailed the ultimate cool-girl waves.

Jessica Chastain

Chastain’s violet Charlotte Tillbury lipstick — applied by makeup artist Kristofer Buckle — is an exact match to her voluminous, off-the-shoulder gown. Her pearly nails add a subtle burst of shine, while her hair’s teased crown, created by Renato Campora using Hair Rituel by Sisley-Paris products, is such a fun throwback.

Glowing from head-to-toe, Ralph’s shimmery, gold-toned makeup (and glossy half-ponytail, for that matter) match the shine in her caped gown.

Not only does Zendaya’s pink under-eye Lancôme blush and eyeshadow highlight spring’s favorite makeup color, but her doll-like lower lashes, created by makeup artist Raúl Alejandre, are full of retro charm. Her bouncy, curled bob was styled with OGX products by celebrity hairstylist Tai Simon.

Ana de Armas


Simultaneously romantic and sultry, who knew one single Jenny Cho-styled tendril could add so much drama? Created using Hair Rituel by Sisley-Paris products, de Armas’ elevated ponytail even feature a dress-matching velvet bow.

Julia Garner

Trying out a new pair of what might just be fake bangs, Garner is nearly unrecognizable without her signature curls. Celebrity hairstylist Bobby Eliot created her soft updo for the night with Ghd tools and Fable & Mane products, including their cult-favorite, shine-boosting oil. If Garner’s complexion looks especially sculpted and glowy, there’s a reason — her skin was prepped with a FaceGym Cryo Contour Facial.

Ashley Park

Showing off a new pair of cheekbone-emphasizing curtain bangs, Park is on-trend at the SAG Awards. Her bangs’ length and the way they graze her fluttery eyelashes are so sultry, particularly with the bronze-toned Jouer Cosmetics and Lashify falsies celebrity makeup artist Jenna Nicole applied.

Quinta Brunson

Brunson’s shimmery French tips and pink-tinted red lip share are stunning, but it’s her sleek, tall topknot — and that pinup-style forelock placement — that’s just next-level glam. Styled by Alexander Armand using Maui Moisture products and Olivia Garden tools, the Josephine Baker-inspired look is flawless.

Fran Drescher

As the president of the Screen Actors Guild, naturally Drescher’s look is an incredible one. Her lush curls, styled by Jon Lieckfelt, are especially full thanks to some well-placed Hidden Crown Hair products.

Amanda Seyfried

There are plenty of retro vibes in Seyfried’s bouncy, ultra-voluminous ponytail, all underscored by her black gel-liner cat eye and peachy lipstick, a Lancôme shade applied by makeup artist Genevieve Herr.

Stephanie Hsu

There’s a reason why so many stars turn to a brushed back hairstyle on the red carpet — as Hsu proves, it’s a surefire look for effortless elegance. With so much extra radiance added by a FaceGym Cryo Contour Facial, Hsu is flawless.

Cara Delevingne

Strong pops of red command even more attention against Delevingne’s long sleeve black gown, especially with a defined yet low-key upper lash line cat eye applied by celebrity makeup artist Wendy Rowe.

Kathryn Newton

A candy-pink Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, applied by makeup artist Gina Brooke, is a fantastic complement to the lilac in Newton’s gown. With her full, brushed-up brows and cascading ponytail, she’s springtime fresh.

Dainelle Deadwyler

Radiant, rose-gold tones not only add a starry-eyed effect, but emphasize the soft pink tones in Deadwyler’s romantic sequin gown. A matching pink glossy lip and elegant braided bun cap it all off beautifully.

Haley Lu Richardson

While siren-red lipstick and pearl-covered gown check all the Old Hollywood glamour boxes, Richardson’s White Lotus character would definitely approve of her (TikTok-beloved) spiked bun. Celebrity makeup artist Jenna Kristina used a suite of Maybelline and Lashify products for the look, but not until skin was prepped with REN Clean Skincare.
