Awards season is well underway, and we’ve been living for the looks coming down the red carpet over the past few weeks. While we can’t join them IRL, that doesn’t stop us from practicing our acceptance speeches in the mirror while rocking a dramatic smoky eye. We hit up our M Crowd Influencers — 6 talented babes who are at the top of their makeup game — and asked them what looks they would rock if they had the chance.

Here’s what they had to say.

Ashley Would Go Glam…

I’d definitely wear a classic red lip or a rose gold inspired look to an awards show this season. I also love glowing skin!”

Miranda Would Keep It Classic…


Awards shows can be tricky because your look is being picked apart and scrutinized. For that reason, I like to keep things pretty classic with tried-and-true looks when I attend them. I don’t think there’s anything more glam than the go-to dramatic smoky eye, which I love creating with the Maybelline Rock Nudes palette. Paired with a nude lipstick that still offers a touch of color, like the YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in Golden Melon, you’re set with a timeless look that’s elegant and edgy.”




Lonyea’s Dress Would Be The Star Of The Show…


“Oh! If I were attending an awards show, I’d wear a bright colored dress so I’d keep the makeup pretty natural and simple with a lot of highlighter and a neutral lip!”

Julia Only Has One Thing In Mind…


“Anything super glowy!”
