Get the Look: Carrie Underwood’s Frosted Smokies

Being the host of an award show, rather than just walking the red carpet or presenting, is a big feat. And you’ve got to make sure your makeup is on-point at all times. After all, the camera is constantly on you. We can bet Carrie Underwood’s makeup artist, Melissa Schleicher, felt some sort of pressure when creating the CMA Awards co-host’s (and Almay Brand Ambassador’s) glamorous look. Not only does it have to work on camera, but it should also be universal enough to look great with all the outfit changes. Schleicher opted for a smoky eye offset by a nude lip for the country star’s big night. "For Carrie, I wanted to create a take on old Hollywood glam,” she said. “I incorporated a more vibrant color palette for a more youthful yet elegant look." Here’s how to recreate the look at home. 

Get the look with these picks:

    Eyeshadow

    Recreating Underwood’s frosty smoky is almost too easy with Almay’s Intense i-Color Evening palette. It features three complementing shadows laid out exactly how you should apply them. Start with the lightest shade as a highlighter all over the lid and on the lower lash line. Follow with the middle hue at the crease and darkest on the lid.

    Eye Liner

    Schleicher used this creamy pencil to create a clean sweep on the upper lash line. She also applied it in the lower waterline for extra depth.

    False Eyelashes

    For extra drama, Schleicher used two sets of Smoke and Mirrors falsies – “New York” on the lash, with “Dolly” right on top. Double the lashes, double the fun, right?

    Powder

    To ensure Underwood’s makeup lasted all night long, Schleicher set the look with Almay’s Clear Complexion Pressed Powder in Light. We can bet this baby was in Underwood’s evening bag for touchups.
