The Critics' Choice Awards honored the best directors, producers, and actors in this year's most renowned cinematic productions, meaning in turn that the red carpet boasted the biggest celebrities of the season. A-listers arrived in their Sunday evening best, flaunting everything from floating winged eyeliner (courtesy of Peyton List) to sky-high updos (yes, Nicole Byer and Angelica Ross, we're talking about you) to so. much. more.
Considering the 2021 show was virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it's no surprise that this year's attendees pulled out all the stops. Last year, many celebrities tried their best to keep some sense of normalcy and impress with their hair and makeup looks — Zendaya wore a gorgeous set of Fulani braids and Yara Shahidi piled her hair on her head in a sky-high topknot — but still, there's nothing like the real deal. In 2021, we even got to see some of our favorite actors double as their glam teams, like Anya Taylor-Joy, who did her own makeup for the occasion, while Emma Corrin opted to stay comfy and go makeup-free.
Our favorite looks from the 2022 Critics' Choice Awards were created by some of Hollywood's best hairstylists, makeup artists, and nail artists in the game, making the night a breeding ground for creativity and glam. Ahead, see the best hair and makeup from the Critics' Choice Awards, and admire the true beauty of Hollywood's biggest celebs.
