Makeup artist Kayleen McAdams started by sweeping the matte brown shadows from Covergirl's nude palette all over the eyes for a bronze, smoky look. “I focused on blending the shades to soften any harsh lines and give the eye shape and definition," she said.

Then, to really up the ante, Adams lined the upper lashes with a chocolate-hued eyeliner.

She finished with three generous coats of this cult mascara.

As for Vergara's deep berry lip? McAdams said finding the right shade was key. “I tried every possible combination of liner and lipstick until I found the one, which happened to be a deep burgundy shade in the new Covergirl Outlast All-Day Custom Reds [collection],” she said. Mark your calendars now: It hits drugstores in January 2017.

Maisie Williams jumped on the bangs bandwagon. (Though, admittedly, they’re just clip-ins, said Ryan Richman, hairstylist for Dove Hair, who created the look). Fake or not, they looked insanely cool. Click through to find out how to score the same look for cheap.

To give the hair grit and hold, Richman divided it into four sections and worked this mousse from roots to tips before blow-drying.

Once dry, Richman liberally spritzed a boar bristle brush with Dove hairspray, then combed the hair up into a high ponytail at the top of Williams’ head. He said that spraying the brush beforehand can help tame flyaways while you style.

Next up, the finishing touches: Richman sprayed the tail with dry shampoo and back-combed it with a brush to create texture and fullness. After twisting the hair into a bun and securing with bobby pins, Richman clipped choppy, faux bangs to the front of the style to “add an edgy and cool touch."

Arguably the standout look of the night, Kerry Washington rocked that pregnancy glow and big, natural curls like the red carpet queen she is.

“From the moment I saw her Brandon Maxwell dress, [which is] minimal yet still edgy with peek-a-boo cut-outs, I thought big, natural textured hair will keep it fresh, modern, and soft,” said hairstylist for Neutrogena Takisha Sturdivant-Drew.

Takisha Sturdivant-Drew first cleansed Washington's hair with Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo, then worked the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask through it. “It is an intensive moisture treatment that restores shine and leaves the hair so soft and lustrous — without any frizz,” she said.

Sturdivant-Drew dried Washington’s hair with a diffuser on medium heat; then, to add some length, she clipped in hair extensions, starting from the back and working her way to the top. “The volume in her hair is a great balance with this sleek Brandon Maxwell dress and her baby bump,” she said.

For fullness, she lightly brushed out Washington’s curls with the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush, $4.49, available at Target.

For makeup that wouldn’t overpower the hair or the dress, makeup artist Carola Gonzalez kept it simple: She first tapped Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation in Cocoa onto her skin with a brush.

She then strategically swept blush onto the apples of Washington’s cheeks. “I wanted the shade to be subtle and closer to Kerry’s natural skin tone, to look like she was barely wearing blush and create more of a bronzed effect," she said. To create that effect, she brushed on a sheer, bronzer-blush, then layered Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Vibrant over it.

Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland opted for a neutral makeup color palette, pairing her gilded eyeshadow with an all-over glow.

“Sarah's Monique Lhuillier ensemble had quite a few colors going on, so it was really important to make sure that her makeup didn't compete,” said makeup artist for L'Oréal Allan Avendaño. “It was a moment of ‘less is more’ and we decided on a special gold liner detail on the eye with eye gloss to keep everything dewy and fresh.”

Her skin was all about the glow. Avendaño started with an illuminating foundation to smooth out Hyland’s complexion. He then brightened her undereyes, sides of the nose, and under the cheekbones with L'Oréal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer.

Then, he dotted a champagne highlighter on the high points of her face — her orbital bone, cheekbones, brow bone, Cupid's bow, and bridge of the nose — and buffed it in circular motions with a dry, synthetic blush brush.

For Hyland's shimmery eye look, Avendaño drew a thin black line right along her upper lash line with a fine-tipped liquid liner. He drew a precise metallic line directly above that using L'Oréal Infallible Silkissime Liner in Silver.

Then, "to match Sarah's jewelry," Avendaño said he wetted his brush, then dusted on this super-pigmented golden shadow. To give her look the trendy glossy effect, he topped her lids with L'Oréal Colour Riche Le Gloss in Naturally Nude, then swiped on two coats of the new L'Oreal Voluminous Feline Mascara Blackest Black.

Avendaño finished the look by tracing Hyland’s lips with a nude liner, filling them in, and then topping it all off with a sheer, bronzy lipstick to give her mouth a hint of sheen.

With the upward tick in the "no-makeup" movement, it should come as no surprise to see a pared-down beauty look on a red carpet. But after ooh-ing and ahh-ing over Tatiana Maslany's fresh-faced makeup, it appears there may be a perfect balance of both worlds after all.

The goal of the night, according to her makeup artist Mai Quynh: Play up her eyes and leave the rest of her face dewy and radiant, as not to take away from her red frock.

First, Quynh worked a liquid foundation into skin using a damp BeautyBlender sponge to create a soft-focus effect, then dabbed a highlighter under Maslany's under eye area to brighten up any dark shadows.

She dusted a shimmery bronze shade shade onto Maslany's lids, from the lash line to crease, smudging it along her top and bottom lash lines. Then, she applies a light and creamy gold shadow onto the inner corners of her eyes, and blended in a deep brown hue at the crease for some depth.

To help define Tatiana’s hazel eyes, Quynh added a swoosh of creamy gel liner to her upper lashes.

Up next, the final touches: Quynh added a few coats of black mascara and also glued a row of medium-sized individual along her top lash line for a hit of drama.
