Discover all the beauty moments that stole the night at the MTV VMAs 2022.
During the MTV Video Music Awards, our favorite celebrities bring their absolute A-game glamour ensembles. And this year, celebrities brought bold, trend-setting beauty looks to the red carpet, with hairstylists, makeup artists and nail technicians ready to unleash their creativity. The red carpet is usually packed with looks that give us hair and makeup inspiration for the upcoming seasons, so this year we were thrilled to see artists like Lizzo and Taylor Swift who gave their looks an upgrade and dared it all on the red carpet.
In the same spirit, Anitta, presented a futuristic bob style over her conceptual crimson “heart of Brazil” dress. Then Dove Cameron, who topped off her gothic fashion look with braided pigtails, razor-sharp white eyeliner and glossy black clutches adorned with roses.
The VMAs have generated some of the biggest style moments that transcend the red carpet and tonight’s celebration was no different. With nominees, performers and presenters like LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj and Jack Harlow, we’ve been waiting for this night since it was announced. And it did not disappoint.
Below, discover the best beauty looks from the gala.
With Avril Lavigne the beat is everything we expected and then some. Orange dip dyed hair, heavy dark smoky eyeshadow with colorful eyeliner and a neutral lip. Nostalgia at maximum volume.
