Beachy-chic might be the last look you expect to see on the red carpet, but summertime radiance rocked the People’s Choice Awards last night. Check out who set the trend and create your own runway-ready winter glow.
While awards shows are usually rife with dramatic red lips and matte Marilyn Monroe-esque faces, this year’s People’s Choice Awards was an exception, and perhaps, a breath of fresh air. Many a star lightened up the night (literally) with a beach-inspired palette, complete with sun-kissed cheeks, light lips and radiant lids. Paired with shimmery gowns in complementary natural tones, the look was all about the face.

Some of our fave looks…
Amber Valletta, our game-over bombshell of the night, took the look to an extreme in head-to-toe nude and surfer girl hair, à la Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush. We loved every second of her neutral lip and copper-lined eyes.Alison Brie matched her spring-blue skin-baring dress with a peach lip, golden eyes and lashes for days. And of course, Julianne Hough stole the stage with pristine dewiness, an earthy smoky eye and a slicked-back bun that rivaled couture dos.
