10 CMT Beauty Looks to Steal for All Your Summer Events

You know why we love the CMT Awards? Even though it was a star-studded evening, the ladies of country don’t feel the need to go over the top to rock the hottest styles. They show us the perfect look for every summer event — from blasting T. Swift and driving with the sunroof open to rocking out at the music festival of your choice. The looks are soft, feminine and natural. We can’t think of better style ethos to kick off the summer season.

FOR A BONFIRE WITH FRIENDS

Kristen Bell: CMT’s veteran emcee shows us glamorous doesn’t have to be hard work. Grab a salt spray for easy beach-y waves, play up your lashes and finish the look with a coral lip.

FOR A DAY AT THE OFFICE

Kacey Musgraves: No one likes slaving over a hot computer screen when the temperature outside is sweltering. Take a cue from Kacey, and rock a messy sock bun with winged liner and a pale pink lip.

FOR A FAMILY AFFAIR

Carrie Underwood: The Video of the Year award winner showed us her sweet side on the red carpet. Loose waves and a dewy pink cheek combined with her signature smokey eye make the girl-next-door look oh so chic.

FOR DATE NIGHT AT THE DRIVE-IN 

Hillary Scott: Lady A’s star songstress channeled Old Hollywood with her look. Her big retro curls and berry pink lip are perfect for snuggling up with your sweetie in the truck bed and taking in a flick.

FOR AN AFTERNOON OF RETAIL THERAPY

Jennifer Nettles: Jennifer’s straight bang, shimmery pink eyeshade and natural lip are perfect for an afternoon of shoe shopping and froyo. And boy did she and John Legend blow us away last night.

FOR A DAY AT THE BEACH 

Kimberly Perry: Messy beach waves stole the show last night, and The Band Perry lead singer followed the trend. We love her natural waves, big lashes and pink lips (with SPF!) for effortless look while sunbathing.

FOR A GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT

Miranda Lambert: Miranda broke the mold last night with her edgy, rockstar styles. Here she rocks lots of volume on top with a smokey eye, pale lip and bronzed summer skin. Pair this look with your favorite skinny jeans and sky high stilettos for a night of bar hopping with the girls.

FOR A DINNER DATE

Leann Rimes: Whether you’ve been together for years or it’s your first date, Leann’s almost-ombre waves, dewy skin and smoldering eyes will keep him entranced all night.

FOR A SUMMER MUSIC FEST

Clare Bowen: The Nashville cutie is our summer concert inspiration with long curls and a flower crown. Rock her fresh-faced look with cutoffs and florals for a festival-ready style.

FOR AN ALFRESCO HAPPY HOUR

Cassadee Pope: The Breakthrough Artist of the Year inspires us to let down our sock buns, and embrace finger waves and big earrings for a co-worker happy hour or a backyard garden party.

BONUS: FOR GETTING DOWN WITH YOUR BAD SELF

Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert: These BFFLs brought down the house at the end of last night’s show with a premiere of their new collab, “Somethin’ Bad.” And their style matched the song. Carrie went big on the hairspray with sexy, voluminous waves while Miranda brought the glam with faux undercut braids.
