Independent Spirit Awards 2016: The Best (And Worst) Celebrity Hair and Makeup Looks on the Red Carpet

From Jessica Biel to Emilia Clarke.
Independent Spirit Awards 2016

I’m talking about bright blue eyeliner (on Jessica Biel), no-makeup makeup (on Emilia Clarke), and matte stained lips (on Freida Pinto). This was a fun one!
