Katharine McPhee: Better Glam or Natural?

01/22/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

After getting the scoop from her hair and makeup artist, we love seeing Katharine McPhee get glammed up for the red carpet. She looked perfectly polished at the Golden Globe after parties on Monday night. Then, for a Wednesday lunch, we spotted Katharine looking very natural with minimal makeup, straight hair and dark-rimmed glasses. The former Idol seems to be one of those lucky girls who looks pretty good either way. Tell us: Which way do you like Katharine? Glam or natural?

She is so beautiful natural! I do agree that she needs to lose the glasses though. She looks great natural just like jessica simpson. Can’t say that for a lot of the others lol. Have you seen brittany lately?woof woof

Wow, I have never realized how beautiful she was. She looks gorgeous both ways definetly. She has really nice skin…

I can’t stand her either way. She is annoying and very fake. I’m very glad she didn’t win she didn’t deserve it

I’ve never been a fan of the “Kat in glasses” look, perhaps it is those frames she has. I do know, however, that freedom of going without the contact lenses can be a welcome one. Katharine has a wide nose (which is actually a good match for her face type) that looks best with a bit of slimming from the cosmetics. Some makeup also allows her to emphasize her best features, which are the eyes and high cheeckbones. So she obviously looks best with some makeup on, like everyone else. The heavy stage makeup should be saved for performances though, it isn’t good for the skin either.

better glasses would help, but i agree that she’s pretty either way.
