You can always count on MTV’s annual Video Music Awards, also known as the VMAs, to serve up the bold beauty looks—and this year’s event was no exception.
On Monday night, celebs walked the red carpet in everything from rainbow roots and draped bright blush to classic red lips and wet-look hair. But the most eye-catching look of all? It just might be Gigi Hadid’s monochromatic caramel makeup.

Gigi Hadid at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Gigi Hadid at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
And this is why Gigi makes the big bucks. Could she be any more stunning?! I’m loving this understated nude lipstick and matching eyeshadow with a generous dusting of gold shimmer—it proves you don’t always need dark or bright colours to stand out. Her hair is a darker blonde these days, and looks great combed off her face, with soft texture.
Gigi is wearing: Foundation in Buff Beige • Concealer in Medium • Highlighter in Metallic Rose • Bronzer in Medium • Eyeshadow in Gold • Mascara in Pitch Black • Brow pencil in Light Blonde • Lip liner in Nude Whisper and Totally Toffee • Lipstick in Baddest Beige
Hailee Steinfeld at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Hailee Steinfeld at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Hailee matched her lipstick to her dress, and it’s perfect. I’ve always loved this colour on her, and the rounded shape is super pretty. She kept the look fresh with a light touch on the eye makeup (with an amazing texture to her lashes), and wore her hair long, loose and soft. Love it!
Hailee is wearing: Serum • Moisturizer • Primer • Foundation in B10 and BR20 • Concealer in 0.75 • Bronzer in Jasper • Powder • Highlighter in Light Gold and Copper • Eyeshadow in Nu • Liquid liner in Black • Mascara in High Density Black • Brow pencil in Medium Ash • Brow mascara in Brun Doré • Lip liner in Vermillion • Lipstick in Mystery Red and Red Enigma (to contour lips)
Taylor Swift at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Taylor Swift at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Taylor is channelling the ’80s in this orangey-red matte lipstick, “scrunched” hair and jazzy Versace blazer. It’s a playful look even if the makeup isn’t the most modern (thanks to her signature black liquid liner that she just won’t quit!). Notice how the lipstick is overdrawn to emphasize her cupid’s bow. I love the bangs on her, but I think the ends of her hair are a bit wispy (I prefer blunt edges).
FKA Twigs at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of FKA Twigs at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
FKA Twigs has a lot going on here, but I don’t know—I think it kind of works? At least, I find the shimmering copper eyeshadow is quite mesmerizing, and I’m always a sucker for faux freckles. Her brows are incredible, and I can also get on board with the red hair to match the eye makeup. I just don’t think we’re ready for the “ring around the lips” lip liner yet.
Adriana Lima at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Adriana Lima at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
There’s no other way to put it, Adriana is a goddess. Especially in wet hair, dewy skin and silvery metallic eyeliner—like she just casually walked down the red carpet after coming from an ocean swim. Her skin is the best part, though. Holy flawless!
Adriana is wearing: Foundation in Natural Beige and Warm Honey • Concealer in Sand • Setting spray • Blush (peach shade) • Highlighter • Eyeshadow in Urban Jungle • Mascara in Classic Black • Lipstick in Driver • Lipstick in Truffle Tease
Halsey at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Halsey at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Halsey stayed true to her pop persona (and the spirit of this event) with a bold orange blush look and even more experimental hair. The rainbow roots are a bit of fun, and we’re seeing more and more of this draping technique, which takes the cheek colour all the way up past the temples. I just think this could be more tasteful with neater hair and subtler lashes (and perhaps a different outfit).
Halsey is wearing: Concealer • Highlighter in Pearl Crush • Lipstick in Hustle (on cheeks) • Lip liner in In The Nude • Lip gloss in Melted Toffee
Camila Cabello at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Camila Cabello at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Camila’s ensemble was all about the hair, worn naturally curly and cascading all the way down her back (no doubt with the help of some extensions). I love seeing curls on the red carpet, but something about this says “’80s” and not in a good way. I think it’s the weird bangs! As usual, her makeup is low key, except for the flirty false lashes.
Keke Palmer at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Keke Palmer at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
With the high neckline of her dress, Keke made the right choice to do a tight top knot. The same goes for the pink lipstick and pop of yellow eyeshadow, which pair beautifully with the bolder yellow sequins. I’m just not crazy about the makeup details when you get close-up. The black shadow, liner and false lashes, along with drawn-on eyebrows, make this feel a little harsh.
Heidi Klum at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Heidi Klum at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
The last time we saw Heidi, her hair was a lot darker; now, she’s not only sporting blonde highlights, but also a new set of bangs. I like this! It definitely makes the look more effortless, but I don’t find the makeup that flattering. The pale lips are okay I guess, but when will she stop doing bottom false lashes with white waterlines?!
Alison Brie at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Alison Brie at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
You can’t tell in this picture, but Alison’s neckline was super plunging, so I find it fitting that she dressed things down with a casual bob, worn half-back with piecey texture. That’s the good part. The makeup, however, is pretty strong. She has the most amazing eyes, but they’re overwhelmed by the heavy brows, shadow, liner and lashes. Compare and contrast with this lighter look.
Alison is wearing: Primer • Foundation • Bronzer • Blush in Peach Perfection • Highlighter in Pearl Crush • Powder • Setting spray • Eyeshadow in Goldens • Eyeliner in Espresso • Mascara in Black • Lipstick in Crème
Bella Hadid at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Bella Hadid at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Every time I see a picture of Bella now, her eye area looks more and more “pulled.” Is it the tight ponytail… or something surgical? If you can overlook that, her makeup is actually nice. The shimmering copper eyeshadow is an exact match with the lipstick, and is perfectly framed by curled lashes. Oh, and she’s gone blonde, although it looks like she kept her roots dark.
Normani at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Normani at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Bold purple eyeshadow was the focus for Normani’s makeup look, while she kept the rest of her face neutral. I like it, although it could be elevated by stripping away the black liner and the sharp shading at the outer corners of her lids. Hair-wise, I think she’d look amazing if she went shorter, like a blunt lob!
Zara Larsson at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Zara Larsson at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
A makeup artist once told me to never wear pink because I already have too much of it in my skin. I can’t help but think of that as I look at Zara! Even though it’s a creative choice (especially with the crystal appliqués), the pink eyeshadow is not her skin’s friend. Even her brow pencil has a pinky tinge. I will say that I like her casual, air-dried hair texture.
Bebe Rexha at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
Close-up of Bebe Rexha at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
I like Bebe’s hair (yes, even the roots make sense for her), but the makeup needs to be more fresh. A LOT more fresh. This is why I’ll never be on board with the “baking” trend—it looks like her under-eye area was powdered way too much, and it’s sucking the moisture out of her skin. The over-the-top-lashes, chartreuse eyeshadow (a very hard colour to wear) and goopy lips don’t help matters.

Oscars 2019: How to Recreate These Red Carpet Makeup Looks from the Oscars

This Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards mark the beginning of another awards season. And with it, will come a gang of red carpet beauty moments that leave us pining for the makeup tricks and skin care treatments celebrities use to get camera-ready. It’s no secret that well-equipped glam squads are behind it all, but inquiring minds need to know just how long and how much it takes to look airbrushed IRL.
So, we went straight to the woman behind some of your favorite red carpet regulars for the undisputed facts. Hrush Achemyan, a celebrity makeup artist and beauty influencer in her own right, has worked her makeup magic on a who’s who of Hollywood, including Christina Aguilera, Shay Mitchell and the Kardashian-Jenners. In short: she knows her stuff. Ahead, she breaks down everything a beauty junkie would want to know about the extra work that goes into a red carpet look.

There’s a lot of pressure that comes with displaying yourself in front of a camera pit, so it comes as no surprise that celebrities are willing to sit through hours of makeup prep beforehand. Achemyan typically allots for at least two hours with her clients, although three is more ideal.

“Sometimes a client and glam just has to get it done in 30 minutes, but I always recommend giving yourself 3 hours,” she says. And although makeup for an in-person event or low-key day doesn’t take nearly as long–about 45 minutes, to be exact–she also understands that “hair is being done at the same time, so it’s a tango between makeup and hair during that time period.”
In other words, no matter the occasion, makeup prep is rarely ever a quick process, especially with so many people in one room.

Like the tango between makeup and hair, fashion is another aspect of the red carpet experience that must be considered.
Achemyan swears by using complimentary colors, once she’s gotten to see what her client will be wearing. “If the client is wearing green, for example, bronze is a beautiful color choice,” she says. The camera lighting also dictates what type of products a makeup artist will use.

Cooler lights require playing up warm tones on the face, while sticking to cooler tones is recommended for warm lights, since it’s very easy to look orange.
“Daytime red carpet makeup needs to be less.,” she says.” For a nighttime red carpet with heavy lighting, it’s easy to get a blank face. You have to play up the highlight and contour to add dimension.”

And since camera lighting is so unforgiving, the products chosen by a makeup artist must be carefully curated. For instance, while SPF is an everyday must, it tends to leave a white film and ghost-like flashback on the red carpet. Instead, Achemyan creates a blur effect on the skin by adding quite a few layers of coverage and not using as much powders, since they don’t lend themselves to a healthy-looking glow. The overall goal of any red carpet look is to make it look as natural as possible, albeit the amount of products being used is extensive, to say the least.
As for her other faux natural tricks, Achemyan says, “With lashes, stick to individuals because they look a lot more natural than strips. For lips, never over draw for the carpet. Also, something a lot of people don’t consider is your arms, ears, legs, and hands all have to be one shade. If you are bronzing the skin, make sure that any skin showing looks the same shade. It’s the biggest giveaway in our craft.”

“Another no no is HD powder. Have you seen all the horrific pictures of our favorite celebs looking like they forgot to wipe off that bake? Yup, that’s what HD powder does if not used correctly.”
It’s also important to remember that a lot of celebrities, including Achemyan’s clients, are upping their water intake and going through a few rounds of facials so the makeup sits better on the skin; an extensive process usually reserved for red carpet season.
With all that being said, ahead are the go-tos Achemyan counts on while getting clients ready for the flashing lights:
Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick
“The colors are extremely vibrant and they photograph beautifully.”
Available on Amazon
Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Kit
“It’s the right tone of cool and warm that gives a chisel, shadow-like effect without making your face look gray.”
$50, at Neiman Marcus
Koh Gen Aqua Illuminator
“…my favorite for illumination because it gives the perfect amount of glisten without making you look oily.”
Available on Amazon
Kylie Cosmetics Silver Series Lipsticks
“You have to try one of these babies out if you can get your hands on them. The colors are super beautiful and they also give your lip a hydrated appeal (versus dry or cracked).”
$17, at Kylie Cosmetics
Morphe Continuous Setting Mist
“You will be in front of lighting, so it’s more likely your makeup will move around. A finishing spray is a must for the red carpet.”
Available on Amazon
From updos to waves, with each red carpet hairstyle we’ve included what you (or your hairdresser) should be doing to get the look.
10 Red Carpet Hairstyles for Short Hair
1. Halle Berry’s Pixie Cut
This remains Halle Berry’s most iconic look. Add volume and texture to those short layers by applying some mousse to get that lightly soft tousled look. Timeless.
2. Kate Hudson’s Ribbon
After Kate had shaved her head for a movie role, she shared her worries about that ‘in-between-grow-out-stage’ on The Ellen Show. To get her look with a difficult style, rub mousse through your hair to create volume and texture, then tie a ribbon around your head. Kate also added a subtle ombre colour to her hair that made the lighter pieces pop.
3. Charlize Theron’s Boyish Glamour
The South African actress pulled off a boy cut that looked so dolled up and glam. Ask your stylist for tightly cropped sides and extra length on top. Opt for some texture paste or some wax to create that messy texture at the front.
4. Emma Watson’s Sleek Hair
If you want to make a high impact entrance, section your pixie hair on your preferred side, making sure the heavier part is the side that looks most flattering on you. Continue to gel it down with a small-tooth-comb to hold it into place. Easy.
5. Mia Wasikowska’s Bob
A short bob takes only a few minutes to flat iron, making it one of the most time-saving hairstyles. Get Mia’s look by parting your hair deeply to the side. Always use heat protectant sprays or serums to keep your hair healthy and shiny. Those flat irons can wreak havoc to unprotected hair!
6. Diane Kruger’s Wavy Bob
‘The National Treasure’ actress looks fab in an extreme side part with loose, low maintenance looking waves. Add just a little bit of volume on the top and spritz some texturizing spray to hair that’s already been curled. This will give your curls a little bit of hold with an airy texture. Just as though you’ve been at the beach all day.
7. Michelle Williams’ Fringe
Hide a high forehead with a fringe. Go for longer length on the top of your pixie and sweep the longer hair forward. It’s important to straighten your hair for this style, so use heat protectant sprays and hair sprays to keep it in place. Classic.
8. Jamie Alexander’s Short Up do
Who says you can’t wear up dos with short hair? Part your hair into three sides and use a volumizing mist for the centre. Instead of pulling the shorter pieces of hair on the sides upwards, try twisting them just above the ears to keep them in place.
9. Danai Gurira’s Shaved Head
‘The Black Panther’ actress rocks her shaved head with elegance by adding sharp and sculpted cuts. Ask your stylist for help on what designs and shapes suit you.
10. Ashleigh Brewer’s Slick Back Hair
Comb your hair towards the back and use pomade or wax to style it. Apply a pea-sized amount and spread it throughout, continuing to pull your hair backwards. This gives you a more controlled and elegant look when you step onto the red carpet. Sleek.
10 Red Carpet Hairstyles for Medium Hair
1. Jennifer Lawrence’s Soft Waves
One of J-Law’s best red carpet hair is the platinum bob she wowed us with at the premier of ‘The X-Men Apocalypse’. Part your hair slightly off centre and use a large curling wand to get those loose soft waves. Bit of hairspray and presto.
2. Bella Hadid’s Wet Look
Start with damp hair and achieve the glossy texture by adding lots of pomade using your fingers. Comb it throughout the back and let it curve around the base of your head for flare. It’s just like you’ve stepped out of a shower… it’s kind of a thing. No, really.
3. Emma Stone’s Classic Look
Emma’s classic look is one of the best red carpet hairstyles for medium hair. Apply mousse to your damp hair as it adds texture and definition into your curls. Part your hair to the side, add a little side swept fringe, and create an ‘S’ curl to achieve those waves. Stunning.
4. Margot Robbie’s Long Bob
Create a deep side part and start straightening your hair to create an angled bob. Tuck hair strands behind your ears to show off your bone structure. Apply mousse near your roots for volume and finish off with oil for added shine. Sharp and edgy.
5. Rose Byrne’s Wave
To emphasize the depth and highlights of your hair, part it to the side to complement a long face. Recreate the curls using rollers or a curling wand and finish off with hair spray.
6. Gal Gadot’s Slicked Back Hair
If you’re feeling confident, create a side part and start applying lots of serums or pomade following the hair line to get a slicked back look. Use a large-teeth-comb for a looser finish. You can’t hide any imperfections with this style so your make-up needs to be just right.
7. Chrissy Teigen’s Wavy Lob
Blow dry your hair with medium heat and add volumizing mist to your roots. Start creating soft bends in your hair and style it into shape by using a flat iron. Set the look with a generous amount of hair spray and you’re ready to go.
8. Anne Hathaway’s Low Bun
Part your hair at the centre before creating a low ponytail near the nape and start twisting it into a bun. Secure with an elastic and hair pins, and cover it with a few strands of your hair. Start pulling out a few strands and loosen up the bun to add volume. This look is very dramatic.
9. Kim Kardashian’s Neat Updo
Apply oil mist to your damp hair before brushing it all back, making sure there is no stray hair out of place. Create a low bun and tuck loose ends under the base and secure with pins. As an added bonus this look creates the look of a mini face lift.
10. Ashley Benson’s Bed Hair
No need for flat irons and curling wands with Ashley Benson’s waves. Use some texture paste for volume and part it to the extreme side for this messy just-got-out-of-bed-look.
10 Red Carpet Hairstyles for Long Hair
1. Katherine Langford’s Side Waves
Show off your long thick hair by styling it dramatically to one side. Blow dry your hair to give your roots a lift after adding some hairspray, apply some oil on the ends of your hair to make it more manageable and smooth then take medium sections of hair and wrap it around your curling iron. To complete the look, fasten it to one side with a dramatic hair pin.
2. Nicole Kidman’s Tousled Braid
Get Nicole Kidman’s hairstyle by prepping your hair with curl-enhancing products before putting them in a braid to achieve imperfect waves. So simple and carefree.
3. Slicked-back Hair Sections
Gwyneth Paltrow’s long sectioned hair can be done under 10-minutes. Divide your hair into a reverse half ponytail and secure the bottom inner section with a ponytail, then style the top layer using some wax to get rid of those pesky stray hairs. This is a very sleek style that shows off your face.
4. Isla Fisher’s Hollywood Glam Waves
This style is one of the most popular red carpet hairstyles for long hair. You’ll need a lot of layers and hair extensions to make sure your hair is thick and full. Then curl, add volume with mousse put on your frock and you’re ready to go.
5. Jennifer Lopez’ High Ponytail
Brush your hair back together near your crown and put it into a high ponytail. Add some mousse for texture and start creating waves using a large curling wand. This is another look that achieves a mini face lift look.
6. Sultry Long Wave
Rita Ora was a stunner at the 2018 Grammys. Spray some hydration mist to dampen hair before sectioning it for a blow dry using a round brush. This instantly adds lift and texture. Start curling hair away from your face and apply some conditioner through from your mid-length to the ends. Very Sultry.
7. Dakota Johnson’s Perfect Fringe
The secret to the perfect fringe is to avoid hairspray. Dakota Johnson’s fringe always look soft yet casual. Avoid cutting your fringe to one length instead opt for layers to make it look more natural. A straight cut fringe along your eyebrows is a whole other look that doesn’t suit all face shapes. Take that as a warning.
8. Camila Cabello’s Low Braided Ponytail
Add some mousse on your damp hair before blow drying it to create volume. Curl your hair in different directions to create loose waves before putting it in a low ponytail. Continue braiding it and add some oil for shine… and you’re ready for your night out.
9. Jennifer Lawrence’s Lioness Look
Looks like Jennifer Lawrence brought the hair crimper back at the 2018 Oscars. Apply some heat protectant spray to your towel-dry hair and use a three-barrel-crimper to quickly achieve this look. She looks effortless…yet ‘done’.
10. Natalie Portman’s Hair Band
Perfect for windy days we’d have to say. Add some mousse for soft tousled hair, twist it into a bun, and add a hairband. Don’t let the ease of this style mislead you. It is sleek, stylish and classic.
The red carpet was once again bedazzled with the glow of the many stars that graced it this year. We look to our favorite celebrities every year for our fashion and hair cues for the season ahead, and as always, the beautiful people at the Academy Awards did not disappoint us. There are so many trends to choose from this year and in 2013, we should never have to repeat the same hairstyle twice in a month!
Most of the current trends are vintage inspired and date back to the early 1900s beginning with the “crown of braids” that was worn by the servants of the time and the elaborate braids of the up dos of the upper class gentry of the era. Other eras that are major influences today are the 1920s and the finger waves of the “Flappers”, the 1930s and the Starlets of the Silver Screen with finger waves, pin curls and Marcel waves. The Art Deco period of the 1940s, with its silver hair jewelry- sparkling with rhinestones, such as hair combs, hairpins, barrettes and headbands. The 1960s, brought long braids as well as the bouffant, the 1970s the shag, the 1980s Punk, and so many more through the present.
