After hosting the Golden Globes together in 2015, your favorite comedic duo returned to this year's award show in style.  

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kicked off the 2021 Golden Globes from separate coasts. Fey, 50, is live from the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center in New York City, as her former Saturday Night Live co-star, 49, is hosting from the Globes' usual location inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

While the besties matched in their TV commercials to promote the event wearing black tuxedos, Fey and Poehler put their own spin on their red carpet looks the night-of.

Fey donned a black Versace tuxedo dress featuring satin lapels. She paired the look with polka-dot tights, classic black pumps and a silver necklace. Poehler also chose all-black for the event, wearing a long-sleeve belted and sequined Moschino frock with silver buttons. She teamed the high-neck dress with black tights and strappy platform heels.

Fey's stylist Cristina Ehrlich was prepping days in advance, sharing a photo from outside Rockefeller Center on Friday with the hashtag, "#letsgo."

Fey's makeup artist Gita Bass tells PEOPLE she relied on clean products from Beautycounter for the star's award show glam.

"Since the globes were a bit different this year and we shot in NY, Tina's styling and glam team decided to go for a more downtown NY cool vibe, rather than the usual Hollywood glam," the pro explains. "For me this meant an edgy plum smokey eye and nude lip, paired with radiant glowing skin which added just the right amount of subtle color to her amazing black coat dress."

"Her skin was first prepped with Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel, which I applied the day before, to help exfoliate and resurface the skin. On the day of, I started with the All Bright C Serum, to instantly brighten the skin and add a gorgeous glow, and then the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion to create the perfectly hydrated, dewy base for makeup. I then gently massaged the skin with the Pause Well Aging Fascia Stimulating Tool to help improve blood flow and boost collagen production."

As for her makeup, Bass applied a few drops of the Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation, then added Skin Twin Creamy Concealer where needed. She also used the brand's Radiant All Over Bronzer, Color Pinch Cream BlusherMattifying Powder and Illuminating Cream Highlighter.

"To create the smokey eye, I lined upper, and lower, lash and water lines with Color Outline Pencil in Violet and smudged with a soft brush. I then layered a bronze eye shadow onto the lid up to the crease and smudged a dark plum shadow over the liner for a smokey effect. For award winning lashes, I applied a few coats of Volumizing Mascara and then added LoveSeen lashes in Inez."

Bass continues: "For a gorgeous rosy nude lip that added warmth to the face without competing with the eye, I applied Color Intense Lipstick in Brunch and layered Beyond Gloss in Peony over the top."

Before their opening monologue, Poehler's stylist Karla Welch shared a cute behind-the-scenes photo of her look with the caption, "The Host! Amy in custom @moschino 🖤".

The  Parks and Recreation star later channeled Beverly D'angelo in a sexy square-neck mini-dress with lace details and a matching choker necklace. She also switched up her hair for the second look, opting for a voluminous half-up, half-down style.

Hairstylist Kylee Heath used Philip B products (including the Philip B. Weightless Conditioning Water, the Philip B. Lovin' Pomade and the Philip B Jet Set Hairspray) to create the polished and smooth style. The pro says she paid homage "to the adorable but retro vibe of the Moschino dress with waves."

The 2021 Golden Globes virtual set-up follows a similar format to the 2020 Emmy Awards. Host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage in L.A., as nominees stayed in the comfort of their own homes during the broadcast and tuned in virtually. Winners were handed their awards from a hazmat suit-wearing presenter who arrived outside their front doors.

The 78th Annual Golden Globes Awards are airing live on NBC from 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET.
