Our 10 Favorite Beauty Looks From Tonight’s VMAs


Metallic eyeshadow reigned supreme

There was nothing subtle about the beauty looks from tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards. Sure, there were quiet, natural moments, but our favorites were the loud standouts—because if there’s ever an award show for experimentation, this is it.

The look of choice appeared to be metallic eyeshadow. Some stars went subtle and added it to the inner corner of their eyes, others went all out and took up the whole lid. Gold and silver were the most popular shades, but Amandla Stenberg swept in with a stunning red shimmer. At the end of the night, all served up looks just as shiny as the moon man himself. 

The hair looks were a little less uniform. Cardi B traded in her usual long locks for a short pixie, while Tiffany Haddish opted for a black-and-white braided updo. Shay Mitchell made us want to try the wet, slicked hair look and Bebe Rexha went for dramatic side-swept bangs. 

Check out the best looks of the night for yourself, ahead. 

Winnie Harlow let her gold eyes shine by going with sleek and simple pin straight hair.
