Hands down, awards season is one of our absolute favorite times for the Cliché family—besides NYFW, of course. It’s a moment made not only for well-deserved recognition, stellar red carpet looks, and who’s bringing who as a plus one chatter, but it’s also a moment frozen in time for the best beauty looks we will spot all year. We gain so much inspo while tuning in right at home for makeup to do’s to the next, you know, red carpet we’ll be seen in…i.e. the next wedding we’re invited to. But let’s be honest: you don’t need a fancy awards show invitation to appreciate the goddess-like makeup we see presented. Nor do you even need a reason to try them out or create your own makeup look inspired by them! We’re all for being glammed up with nowhere to go. Just catch us on the couch with a bottle of wine and an episode of Gilmore Girls playing; we’ll give you an award just for the pure fabulousness of it. With that all being said and done, we’re rounding up the best beauty looks from this year’s awards season that we can all continue to be in awe of until the next awards season.
