These Celebrities Had the Most Fire Hair and Makeup Looks at the 2018 VMAs
We look to the Oscars red carpet to see the most glamorous red carpet looks Hollywood has to offer and to the Met Gala for the most daring—but we look to MTV's Video Music Awards for edgier inspiration. Typically, musicians tend to be a little more playful with their hair and makeup, especially for an event as fun and youthful as this one, held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. We were particularly pumped to see what music's best would bring this year, considering that 2018 has introduced us to some pretty interesting characters: Cardi B blew up this year, as did Camila Cabello. And when interesting people get famous, their colourful personalities seem to influence the industry at large.
We were not disappointed by this year's VMA's. The unique red carpet trends ranged from glittery eye makeup to bold black bobs and pixies, and we were living for it. Keep scrolling to see which celebs we think killed it the most.
Winnie Harlow is giving us major Cher vibes with that long sleek hair and major gold eye.
No one rocks a slicked-back look like Shay Mitchell (see here for more slick hair inspo).
Cardi B's pixie and purple bottom liner are a showstopper.
Team Byrdie is going through a hardcore 80s phase right now and by the looks of her big hair, big earrings, and bright red lip, so is Camila Cabello.
Jasmine Sanders, aka, The Golden Barbie is getting us very excited for fall with that vampy wine-coloured lip.
Hayley Kiyoko's brows are so good, it hurts. (To recreate that modelly bushy-browed look, we recommend a ModelCo's brow gel.)
Not to be dramatic, but we gasped a little when we saw Amandla Stenberg's shimmery red eye and short black bob. So daring and foxy.
The shiniest hair in the music industry definitely belongs to Ariana Grande. Always nice to see her wearing it down.
Noah Cyrus's fresh skin and no-makeup makeup are unique for a red carpet, but matched with her cool shaggy bob, the look is super youthful. (Which is good, considering the singer is 18.)
Grace Vanderwaal looks like an effortless French girl here. Loving that silver eyeliner.
