The VMAs took place last night in New York City. As beauty fanatics, the first (and sometimes only) thing we notice is the beauty looks. Popular trends that were spotted include long, sleek hair and bold eye colour. Celebs also seemed to favour a more natural look, with glossy and bronzed skin being the biggest winners.

1. Cardi B

Cardi B debuted a new hairstyle on the red carpet. Her feathered pixie haircut was complemented by dramatic lashes, with lilac lids that matched her dress. Of course her talons where long and embellished, just the way she likes them.

Another one 😍🤩

2. Ashanti

Edges were laid and a long wavy wig secured by the singer, who also accentuated her face with smoky eyes and nude lips.

3. Amandla Stenberg

Amandla rocked a cute shaggy bob with baby bangs, and glittery orange eyeshadow that went well with her ’70s-inspired outfit.

4. Karrueche Tran

Karrueche looked like she had just landed from a beach holiday on a faraway island, with bronze skin that was gleaming. She wore her hair long and wavy, like most celebs on the night, and kept the rest of her look simple by only adding lip gloss to her beautiful smile.

5. Shay Mitchell

Another bronzed goddess, Shay Mitchell went for statement brows and sleek hair. She also kept her lips simple, opting for a high-shine gloss to complete her look.

OMG THIS LOOK IS EVERYTHING 😍😍😍😍
