If the red carpet at People’s Choice Awards is any indication for spring makeup, then our prediction was correct – moist beige lips and smoky eyes are the “IT” look!! This safe makeup selection was often paired with a bold color choice in garments – nothing new there. Perhaps hairstyles were the main attraction last night, we spotted a few daring dos, notably Lea Michele’s cornrows, Taylor Spreitler’s braided updo, and Naomi Watt’s dramatic tucked-under ‘do.
Where, oh where, was emerald? Pantone Color of the Year seemed to have little influence on makeup and dress selections. Due to red and green being complementary colors, green can be a difficult color to pull off on the red carpet, as it can cause one to end up looking a bit “Christmassy.” Nevertheless we did expect it to make an appearance due to its new found fame.
Overall, everyone played it safe – basic looks, nothing blew us away. We’ll be looking to the Golden Globes on Sunday and the upcoming Oscars for more daring makeup and color choices. WOW us!!! And congratulations to the nominees!!
