Who had the best hair and makeup at the People’s Choice Awards: Kaley Cuoco or Taylor Swift?
Something interesting happened on the People’s Choice Awards red carpet last night. Taylor Swift said “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to her traditional beauty look while Kaley Cuoco went a little bit country with Carrie Underwood-inspired hair and makeup. Both stars graced the People’s Choice Awards stage many times throughout the night—Swift took home the award for Favourite Country Artist and Cuoco hosted the show—but when it came to beauty, we think Taylor Swift definitely comes out on top.
Kaley Cuoco’s red carpet hair is mainly where she looses points. The over-teased pouf turns her blonde beach waves into a Miss America mess. If she had just left the hair at her crown to do its own thing instead of tucking it into a half-updo (no one likes a half-updo!) it would be an A+ style. Especially with that sparkly barrette—hair accessories always make a red carpet more interesting. (And the thing is, Cuoco did let her hair down later in the night and it looked great. If only she’d walked the red carpet with that hairstyle!)
As for makeup, Kaley Cuoco went for a simple black cat-eye paired with petal-pink lipstick and blush. Very classic, very flattering. But we’re still hoping that she’ll soon pull a Demi Lovato and let her eyebrows grow in.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift ditched her usual cat-eye, silver glitter and red lips for a sultry, bronze eyeshadow with a touch of shimmer and a neutral satin lip. While jewellery doesn’t count as makeup, we have to say: the drop earrings make Swift’s blue eyes stand out and look positively icy. However, Taylor Swift could have done something a bit different with her hair (loose curls pulled back, we’ve seen this before!) but the simple twisted updo complements her dress. Overall, it’s a great look for Swift—and, more importantly, one that says “Harry, who?”
