The Hilarious Way Charlize Theron Got Ready For The People's Choice Awards

There's no denying that Charlize Theron is a beautiful person. The star "has been a vivacious presence in the Hollywood scene for over twenty years," Marie Claire Australia pointed out in 2019. The outlet also noted that "with more than two decades of film premieres and red carpet appearances" under her belt, Theron "has explored many beauty looks; from the classically glamorous, to something more eccentric."

Considering Theron can successfully tackle so many styles, you might think that she's always been focused on her appearance. However, that's not the case at all. "[Looks] were never emphasized in the house I was raised in," she once said, per Vogue. She went on to explain that she doesn't ever recall her mom saying, "'Isn't she a pretty girl?' She'd say, 'You should hear her sing. You should read this poem she wrote.' The praise was always about what I'd done, not how I looked."

That may be true, but Theron is still someone who knows what she's doing when it comes to stunning audiences at industry events. Granted, when it comes to the 2020 People's Choice Awards, you might be surprised by the hilarious way that she chose to prep before the big night.

Charlize Theron got an adorable — if wonky — makeover

Charlize Theron could proudly boast about the fact that she was nominated for two People's Choice Awards in 2020. She was recognized in the Female Movie Star of 2020 category for her work in The Old Guard and was also up for the Action Movie Star of 2020 thanks to the same film. However, before the big night even began, the star appeared to be ready for what was to come.

A few weeks before the awards show took place, Theron took to Instagram to share a photo of herself getting her makeup done. While there's nothing strange about that, what made the image so hilarious was the fact that the result of her makeover wasn't exactly what you'd expect. Frankly, her blush wasn't blended, her eyeshadow was patchy, and her mascara was under her eyes instead of on her lashes. But we have a feeling that the star has never felt more beautiful than she did that day. That's because her makeup was being done by her daughter. The mom of two children, Jackson and August, captioned the photo by writing, "To every makeup artist out there..... watch out, you've got competition!"

Fans simply loved what they saw, with one person writing, "What an awesome mom!! Those are priceless memories that your sweet daughter is never going to forget and will cherish. 'Glamming up her mommy.'" A precious memory, indeed!
