Queen Latifah 3 of 10
All hail the queen! Yes, I had to go there. I adored Queen Latifah's look head to toe. Especially that blunt bob she's rocking! But it was her makeup by makeup artist and COVERGIRL ambassador Sam Fine that I loved.
He admitted that the minute Queen saw the LBD she would wearing she made a request. "Latifah immediately requested a simple eye, glowing skin, and a striking lip instead of our favorite smokey eye/pale lip combination. So, when the Queen makes a request… I aim to please!" said Fine.

How to Get Queen’s Look 4 of 10
Here's the step-by-step look on how you can achieve Queen Latifah's red carpet look at the People's Choice Awards—directly from makeup artist Sam Fine!
"Every look begins with great skin - beautiful coverage and a gorgeous glow!"
- I always begin using truBLEND Fixstick concealer ($7.99) one shade lighter than her complexion.
- It's perfect to highlight the under eye area, the bridge of the nose and chin (areas where the light naturally hits the face).
- After, I use a synthetic foundation brush to gently apply truBLEND Liquid Makeup ($9.99) to unify varied tones.
- I used Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder ($7.49) to set underneath the eyes and the center of the face, then applied my favorite bronzer, Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer ($7.49), near the outer perimeter of the face for glowing results.
- Tip: I often use two shades of bronzer one that matches her skin tone, which takes the place of blush, and a deeper shade to contour and warm her complexion.
"A simple, clean eye doesn't mean that I don't use eye shadow; it means I used natural looking shades to enhance the shape of her almond eyes."
- Using a large brush, I swept the eye with Queen Collection Eyeshadow Pot in Dazzle ($4.99) to add warmth, richness and a touch of shimmer to the eye area.
- Then, I applied Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Midnight ($8.99) closest to the lashline, extending it at the outer corner to lift the eye.
- Lastly, I applied individual lashes and few coats of Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black ($11.99) for volume and intensity.
"Now, the fun part… a dramatic lip!"
- I always begin with liner to shape the lip and insure a long lasting finish throughout the night.
- I applied LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved ($6.99). Using a lip brush for added precision, I applied Queen Collection Lip Color in Burgendelicious ($7.49) for an effortless, yet glamorous finish!
Kat Denning 5 of 10
Kat Dennings is not only one of the stars from 2 Broke Girls, but she was also a co-host of the People's Choice Awards. Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Anderse gave Kat an elegant, yet bombshell look for the red carpet. I personally loved her black and red floral strapless gown. Although some fashion critics may disagree.

Drew Barrymore 9 of 10
First, let me say how much of a Drew Barrymore fan I am! I was so happy to see her radiant beauty on that stage. While she was presenting a People's Choice Award to her friend and co-star Adam Sandler, I immediately noticed her lip color. I knew she was wearing one of my favorite shades of lipstick—Get to the Poinsettia!
Flower Beauty, which also happens to be Drew's own brand of beauty products, makes the most incredible vibrant color. So in order to confirm, I tweeted them. I love being right! You can view Drew's entire beauty look here.
