While trying to predict the beauty looks that actresses would choose for the Golden Globes red carpet, we at Fashionista were hoping for either a) lots of runway-inspired glitter or b) a bunch of over-lined, matte lips à la Kylie Jenner. Neither happened, but we're not disappointed, because Sunday night proved to be one of the more interesting red carpets we've seen in a while. Several trends emerged, and many actresses even tried a few at once. We've rounded them all up below for easy browsing, and we're happy to report that a number of them seem easy enough to test out right at home.
