We only just finished oohing and ahhing at all the beauty looks from the Golden Globes, and now there's another red carpet event for our perusal: this week's People's Choice Awards.
As a whole, I didn't feel the hair and makeup here quite lived up to the standard set so far this awards season—but there were still a few inspiring moments.
Take a look, and let me know your thoughts:
Ruby's dark blackberry lipstick stole the show. She wore them with subtly smoked eyes, natural lashes and strong brows. I appreciate that her skin still has some healthy sheen, to play down the seriousness of the lipstick. The textured long fringe adds her signature edge.
Could Blake's long, thick hair be any more glorious? It may not be the most polished hairstyle, but I love that she wore it down. With her glittering black dress and matching earrings, it's very casual glam. With the makeup, she went glowy and warm, choosing brown shadow, contoured cheeks and a pink lip. I just think her false lashes were slightly better at the Globes—these seem too long at the outer edges.
I love Victoria's long, straight hair, groomed brows and flawless skin. And even though I prefer a lighter touch on the makeup, she still looks beautiful in the black liner, smoky shadow and jumbo-sized false lashes. The '90s-inspired lipstick is very on trend.
Victoria is wearing: Primer • Foundation in Sable • Blush in Frantic Pink • Highlighter in Mary-Lou Manizer • Bronzer in Dream • Eyeshadow in Light/Medium • Mascara • Brow pencil in Soft Brown • Lipstick in Bonbon • Lip liner in Chocolate
I've always liked Jamie in berry lipsticks, and I don't even mind the overlining she's done here. With flushed cheeks and tousled hair, the whole vibe here is super romantic. However, I do have a problem with the brows, which were filled in to look way too heavy and warm-toned.
This pink lipstick with yellow undertones is such a great shade for Ali's blonde hair and fair complexion. I also really love her lashes, which have that fluffy, natural texture I always rave about. There's no other detectable eye or brow makeup, and her hair is pulled into a loose bun.
Ashley did a wavy high ponytail, and I love the soft texture, fuzziness around the hairline and this lighter colour (much better on her than dark brown). You almost miss it, but she is also wearing purple eyeshadow that matches her dress. The lashes are pretty decent, too. I like that her lips are a warm beige, as a cool tone there would've looked off.
Even with tons of contour, Jennifer's skin is great. Hard to believe she is going to be 48 this year! I always like when she wears her hair off her face, this time in a low, straight ponytail. However, these lashes are beyond crazy! She's also doing that thing again over overlining her lips without blending the pencil, and then topping it all off with a goopy gloss.
Jennifer is wearing: Foundation in Natural Tan • Foundation in Perfect Beige • Foundation in Nude Beige • Foundation in Golden Beige • Concealer • Contour in Medium • Blush in Tender Rose • Blush in Innocent Flush • Bronzer in 90 Sun Glow • Powder • Moisturizer (as highlighter) • Eyeshadow in Nude 1 • Eyeshadow in Smokey Burgundy • Eyeliner in Black • Eyeliner in Ultra Black • Mascara • False lashes in Tease • Brow pencil in Blonde and Brunette • Brow mascara in Ash Blond • Lip liner in Inspire • Lipstick in Toasted Almond • Lipstick in Nature's Blush
While Priyanka's Globes look was all about dramatic lips and eyes, this one is sheer, soft and feminine. The coral-pink tones on her lips and cheeks are doing amazing things for her warm complexion. Rather than heavy shadow or liner, her eyes are adorned with long lashes (and I actually think this is a good pair!). She wore the same loose waves again.
Priyanka is wearing: Face oil • Face mask (tissued off) • Face mist • Foundation in Praline • Contour • Powder in 5 • Blush in Rose Royalty • Eyeshadow in VPE10 Warm Neutral Mattes • Mascara in Black • Lipstick in Fantasy
