Her wardrobe malfunction notwithstanding, which she handled like a boss anyway, Dakota Johnson was dewy and gorgeous at the People's Choice Awards.

It's all due to her natural beauty, with a little help from her go-to glam squad: hairstylist Mark Townsend and makeup pro Pati Dubroff. Both of whom are truly lovely people in their own right.

"Dakota always loves a Jane Birkin eye, and it always works for her. When she came down after dressing I got obsessed with adding some blue liner. It's like the dress was asking me to do it..just a touch and smudged well at the lower lashline," says Dubroff. "Sometimes you've got to listen to the dress."

In this case, an Armani two-piece number. Her face, meanwhile, says Dubroff, "was really fresh and natural-looking."

Dubroff used PÜR Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation to give Johnson's face an even finish, coupled with Nars Ferver Dual Intensity Blush on the apples of her cheeks. Her orbs popped courtesy of PÜR Eye Polish Pure Pigment Eye Primer + Top Coat in Satin on the center of her lid. And her pout: Kevyn Aucoin Lip Pencil in Minimal followed by the PÜR Lip Gloss Stick in Berry Pretty.

As for her loose 'do, says Mark Townsend, she "knew exactly what she wanted to do with her hair: a sexy, tousled look with a lot of volume at the crown. Since her signature fringe has grown out a bit, I blew dry her bangs away from her face and set them with a duck-bill clip. I then went in and blew dry the rest of her hair with my Spornette boar bristle brush, getting it smooth and shiny. Once the hair was fully dried, I went in section by section and liberally sprayed her locks with Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo before waving it with my double barrel iron."
