Last night’s American Music Awards brought so much more to the table than just musical talent, as we saw every possible makeup look make its way down the red carpet in one seriously impressive beauty lineup. We’re talking slicked-back ponytails, breathtaking braids, pink eye makeup, and even some space-age vibes.
Discover the beauty looks that caught our attention as we round up the best beauty looks from the AMAs red carpet.
It was all futuristic feels for Taylor Swift, who braved a metallic silver Balmain mini-dress and matching silver eye makeup to bring some sci-fi edge to the red carpet.
Pretty in pink, Vanessa Hudgens wore a soft blush look courtesy of Patrick Ta, who used the Shiseido ‘Aura Dew’ foundation to give her skin a natural, dewy finish which he topped off with a high-shine highlight.
The best part about moving into the fall/winter season? Deep berry lips. We love this shade worn by Leighton Meester, especially when teamed with simple skin and a natural, tousled updo.
The Queen of the bronze smoky eye, Jennifer Lopez certainly didn’t disappoint on the red carpet last night. Teaming gorgeous, golden skin with a glossy nude lip and a seriously sultry smoky eye, she turned up the heat with a set of high-impact falsies.
Speaking of golden gleams, Amber Heard brought the Midas touch to her beauty look by braiding metallic thread into her pulled-back braid. A simple but show-stopping way to transform your tresses – and one we can’t wait to try.
Who said you can’t rock bold hair, lips, and eyes? Not Cardi B, that’s for sure. Donning an eye-catching flowery Dolce & Gabbana gown – complete with a magnificent matching headpiece – she combined a statement red lip, a colorful cat-eye, and sky-high lashes for the ultimate “wow” factor.
Normally one to also go for more of an “out there” look, Rita Ora surprised us by stripping things back and opting for a classic combination of a winged liner, nude lip, and seriously polished pony.
The brown lip is officially back thanks to this look from Dua Lipa. Inspiring us to swap out our reds for a 90s-esque chocolate lip, she’s also got us wanting to chop our hair into cool, textured lobs.
