It's almost the most wonderful time of the year and I obviously don't mean Christmas. It's time to turn our smokey-eyed gaze to Red Carpet season, which is just around the corner!
The 2016 season kicks off on January 6th with the People's Choice Awards. The PCAs are like the goofy cousin of the Globes; you never know what can happen. Last year, Divergent beat Guardians of the Galaxy, Let's Be Cops was nominated for an actual award and Chloe Grace Moretz beat out Meryl Streep (and I love CGM!!!). This is serious stuff, people!
Style-wise in 2015, the PCAs gave us bright dresses, black and white separates and continued the rise of the jumpsuit. Nude eyes and lips were still going strong and slicked back hair kept trying to be a thing.
According to my gut, and to people who know what shoes go with what boat, in 2016 the Red Carpet will continue with bright colors, peekaboo shoulders and maybe a little netting (it's supposed to be a thing, but it sounds hinky to me). For hair and makeup, I'm expecting to see lots of healthy, shiny hair slicked (but not wet, please) into tight braids and twists. Emphasis on the healthy, please!
We'll see blocks of color and the occasional shenanigans under the lash line. Think extended liners, and lower lash whimsical extensions. Your regular lashes will need to boost both length and volume to keep up and nude shadow will still be the boss of us all. Finally, rosy pink lips will just make sense for everyone.

There is no better way to kick off the New Year and Red Carpet season than winning a serious beauty haul from Proctor & Gamble and Walgreens! Follow the Rafflecopter directions and you could win a P&G Walgreens People's Choice Awards Prize pack, just like what the celebs get in the red carpet gifting suites (minus the shoes, the jewelry and the televisions.

While I won't be at the award show (maybe next year, right? sponsors? A girl can dream, I guess), rest assured that if I was, I'd be wearing a killer nude smoky eye, a flirty lip and a strobed cheek. Kind of like what I did above--that lip is my color (it's COVERGIRL Outlast in 945)!
