Best in Show: Four People's Choice Awards Makeup Looks We Loved

01/10/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

Sure, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston won big, but who looked best at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday? Now that the trophies have been distributed, we give you our best in beauty awards from last night …

Katy Perry

Best makeunder: Katy Perry. In a departure from all those blues, pinks and purples Perry usually sports, makeup artist Todd Delano used “rich, earthy tones” on his Valentino-clad client, he tells PEOPLE. After priming and prepping her skin with Koh Gen Do powder, he added Kevyn Aucoin “Dolline” blush to the apples of her cheeks, buffing Nars “Luster” over it “for an apricot glow,” he explains. “I like to start with a matte blush and add shimmer second.” For eyes, Delano chose Nars “Sophia” shadow — a warm chocolate color — and added dimension on the corners with “Embark” shadow from M.A.C. A little gel liner and white pencil defined and opened up the eyes, and “Whirl” liner and “Syrup” lipstick by M.A.C. completed the big winner’s low-key look.

Best skin: Lea Michele. College life agrees with this Glee star! The L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman called upon Melanie Inglessis to create a fresh, simple and youthful look for last night’s show. The makeup artist used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation on her client, adding L’Oréal Magic Smooth Souffle Blush in “Angelic” for a pretty pink glow. Playing off of Michele’s hot pink dress, “I thought a purple eye would be fun,” Inglessis says. So she picked liner, shadow and mascara in various plum hues, finishing the face with a neutral lip gloss.

Taylor Swift

Best smoky eye: Taylor Swift. Swaying from her typical fresh-faced look, CoverGirl Swift finished her daring breakover with a smoky eye that added edge to her ensemble. Arched brows, bronze shadow and lots of black liner made the wholesome singer look a bit bad — and we mean that in a good way.

Jennifer Lawrence

Best overall: Jennifer Lawrence. Looking lovely but natural, Lawrence received kicked-out cat eyes and neutral cheeks and lips from makeup artist Jillian Dempsey. Dempsey blended black and champagne shadows from YSL and Giorgio Armani to give the actress’s eyes some drama, framing her orbs with several coats of Lancôme’s Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara and black liquid liner from Armani. A very light pink gloss completed what Dempsey called a “Bardot-esque” face.
