While the first thing I noticed were those shimmery shoulders, I approve of Carrie Underwood's subtle sparkle instead of glitter galore. Her hair cascades in softer waves (compared to the big styles she often favors), and pulling up those long bangs with extra lift really brings the emphasis to her face.
Which brings me to that makeup. With mascara-heavy lashes and thickly lined eyes, her eyes do pop, but is it too pageant-y? You be the judge.
