Rachel McAdams’ Wine-Stained Lip and Textured Bob At Critics’ Choice Awards

Rachel McAdams completely blew us away on the red carpet at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. on Jan 17. The Spotlight actress, who is nominated for not one, but two awards this evening, stunned in a red sequin Ellie Saab gown that looked even more glamorous when paired with her perfectly undone bob and bold lip color.

Ever the red carpet beauty, Rachel opted for a simple, yet stunning beauty look for the Critics’ Choice Awards where her go-to hairstylist Mark Townsend styled her chin-length bob into a tousled, undone style that was punctuated by beachy waves and a deep side part.

To create the look, Mark started by applying a small amount of Dove Serum-In-Oil and Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse to damp hair before drying it with a Spornette Mixed Bristle Round Brush.

He then wrapped large sections of hair around a Harry Josh Pro Tools 1-inch Curling Wand and scrunched in Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Dry Shampoo for added shine and piecey-ness. To finish, Mark spritzed Dove Extra-Hold Hairspray around the part to help keep it in place.

Rachel’s beauty pro sister, Kayleen McAdams, was on makeup duty and she made sure to give her the most stunning look of the night. Rachel already has gorgeous porcelain skin, which Kayleen highlighted by pairing with a dark berry lip. Kayleen left the rest of her makeup minimal, with lightly lined eyes and mascara so as not to compete with her dramatic lip color.
