On any other red carpet, you can expect to see glowing skin and a beauty trend or two—but this is the VMAs 2022, people! This awards show is legendary for creating bold red carpet looks, making it the perfect opportunity for celebs to opt out of their signature makeup for something much more daring. The VMAs have spawned some of the biggest style moments to transcend the red carpet and tonight’s celebration is no different.
Attendees proved that makeup is fully back and better than ever, choosing unexpected lip colors and playing with texture. From Lizzo’s monochromatic navy lipstick to Taylor Swift’s Euphoria-inspired bedazzled eyeliner, the biggest names in music are embracing the art of the full face.
Ahead, the best beauty looks from the VMAs 2022 red carpet.
