Keira Knightley reminds us that a lipstick’s texture is just as important as color! Her soft, romantic cherry stain perfectly suited her whimsical Chanel gown. To create it, her makeup artist Kate Lee used Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Etienne. But instead of just applying it like usual, Lee “painted her lips fully, blotted off the color with a tissue and softened the edge with a cotton tip. “We were going for a bitten, stained berry lip as opposed to a strong statement lip,” Lee explains.

Lupita Nyong’o is often a beauty rule-breaker, and her bold eye and lip look didn’t disappoint. Inspired by “romance,” her makeup artist Nick Barose paired violet smoky lids with a blend of three different lip products (Lancome’s Le Lipstique in Sheer Chocolate, Color Design in Hit List and Lip Lover in Framboise Etoile) to create that perfect glossy plum.

Most people would take the smoky-eye-and-nude-lip approach when wearing a silver gown, creating a bombshell effect. Instead, Diane Kruger opted for subtle platinum shadow and iridescent pastel pink lips, giving her whole ensemble a futuristic-ethereal vibe that we fell in love with!

In the nail department, most of the night’s leading ladies kept things simple with barely-there pink hues. But not Jennifer Lopez, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Laura Prepon. Lopez’s nails may seem like a regular rose-gold manicure from the top. But flip them over and you’ll find an extra blingy surprise: Her nail pro, L’Oréal Paris’s Tom Bachik, applied two Swarovski crystals beneath each nail. Mrs. Channing Tatum went simply-chic with a modern twist, wearing a greige opaque polish instead of the basic sheer nude. And finally, Orange is the New Black star Prepon made two major mani statements by sporting a deep metallic bronze painted onto long almond-shaped tips.
