Like most of the attendees at last night鈥檚 Golden Globes ceremony, Emma Stone wore a black dress to stand in solidarity with victims of harassment and abuse. But her dress wasn鈥檛 the only powerful statement she made on the red carpet. As it turns out, her makeup was equally symbolic.

Stone, who brought tennis legend Billie Jean King as her date after portraying the female rights activist in last year鈥檚 Battle of the Sexes, stunned in a one-shoulder black lace gown by Louis Vuitton.

The La La Land star also used the red carpet as an opportunity to support women in another poignant way, however, with a little help from makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin. The beauty guru revealed to People that the color palette she chose for the Oscar-winner had a far deeper meaning than complimenting her skin tone (which it most definitely did): It actually represented the women鈥檚 suffragette movement of the late 19th century.

Goodwin told the outlet she got the idea to let her work tell a story thanks to the message behind the TIME鈥橲 UP movement, saying, 鈥淥nce I heard about the idea of women coming together and wearing black to the ceremony, and the message behind it, my friend Arianne [Phillips] designing the TIME鈥橲 UP聽pin, and what the message is, I wanted the makeup to have a message as well.鈥

While the creation took a little research, the end result was well worth it. 鈥淚 thought, red lipstick was a color suffragettes wore, so I did more research and found that they also wore very specific, symbolic sashes, pins, petticoats and all these things in purple, emerald green, and white when they were fighting for the right to vote,鈥 she said.

Consequently, Goodwin chose a dark emerald NARS eyeliner around Stone鈥檚 top and bottom lashes (you can try the brand鈥檚 Velvet Eyeliner in Kalist茅, $24), adding a hunter green shade from its Glass Tears Eyeshadow Palette ($49) to her lids. She added white shadow at the inner and outer corners of her A-list client鈥檚 peepers, finishing the look off with a purple-hued lip.

In an Instagram post, Goodwin added, 鈥淭onight my beauty inspiration came from the symbolic colors of the women鈥檚 suffrage movement. I wanted to create a makeup [look] that would somehow be imbued with the message of female empowerment and solidarity.鈥

She also included a quote from British female rights activist Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, which read, 鈥淧urple, as everyone knows is the Royal color. It stands for the Royal blood that flows through the veins of every suffragette, the instinct for freedom and dignity, white stands for purity in private and public life鈥 and green the color of hope.鈥
