AMAs 2018 Red Carpet: Best Skin, Hair and Makeup Looks
At this yr’s American Music Awards, musicians will have won the entire accolades—but it surely was once the actresses who dominated the purple carpet.
Namely, Amber Heard and Leighton Meester, who had my favorite glam of the night time. But I used to be additionally serious about Tracee Ellis Ross, along with her fearless way to make-up, and Cobie Smulders, who schooled us within the artwork of colour-blocking.
These have been essentially the most inspiring superstar seems:
What I love: Amber’s peachy make-up, sparkling pores and skin and slicked-back rainy hair (it is in a braid on the again). The lip color is particularly pretty, and in case you glance intently, you’ll be able to see she’s dressed in blue mascara on her decrease lashes.

What I love: Vanessa’s shimmery purple shadow (which goes her get dressed completely) and glossy lob, tucked in the back of one ear. The glow down her nostril and within the centre of her lips truly brings this to lifestyles. What I might alternate: I might do transparent lip gloss (now not so goopy), extra feathery brows, and no lip liner.
Tracee Ellis Ross
What I love: Tracee’s makeup-free pores and skin, graphic black liner and mod purple lipstick. I do know this may not be everybody’s style, however I SO admire her willingness to experiment—she’s by no means dull! What I might alternate: This could be higher along with her hair up and much less overdrawn lips. Usually, I dig chunky lashes however those are truly stubby.
What I love: Taylor has returned to her Life Cut! This is my all-time favorite hair for her—lengthy and darkish blonde with bangs, which we have not observed since 2013. What an growth in comparison to the shag she used to have, and that point she bleached it platinum. The make-up’s nonetheless at the heavy aspect, however I do like the gray shadow and child purple lips. What I might alternate: She most certainly needed to do industrial-strength basis since she was once appearing, however I might favor a lighter contact… identical with the lip liner!
What I love: Ciara’s giant, textured curls with shiny gold highlighter on the inside corners of her eyes and down the bridge of her nostril. Her pores and skin is taking a look flawless and naturally sculpted. What I might alternate: I believe the brows may well be higher, with high quality strokes throughout the tails.
What I love: Cobie’s a laugh colour-blocked make-up—a pop of blue liner with an orangey-red lip stain, in opposition to recent pores and skin. The sun shades fit her floral get dressed, however glance extra edgy than candy because of the textured lob, naked lashes and herbal brows. What I might alternate: Nothing.
What I love: Amandla’s stunning pores and skin and smoky opposite cat eyes. The liner is concentrated underneath her decrease lash strains, with naked lids and herbal lashes above. I additionally love the vibrant items woven into her braids—the ends are like tassels! What I might alternate: Nothing.

What I love: Dua’s brown lipstick, matching shadow and lush lashes. She has a brand new, shorter bob (this is what her hair gave the look of ahead of) and I all the time love her brows. What I might alternate: Her lip liner is only a reasonably other color.
What I love: Camila’s transparent lip gloss, flushed purple cheeks and flawless pores and skin. We cannot truly see her eye make-up, however it is great to peer much less blush in comparison to her VMAs glance. What I might alternate: Her hair. It’s a little piecey, and really feel like there may be an excessive amount of quantity on the best, or one thing?

What I might alternate: I might love to peer her eyebrows straighter, now not so arched and pointy. It would truly melt her glance.
Rita is dressed in: False lashes
What I love: Busy’s steel silver eyeshadow on the inside corners of her eyes. Her purple lip gloss is the easiest colour and texture. What I might alternate: The centre parted waves don’t seem to be doing it for me… however I believe the primary factor is in fact her hair color, which is just too with regards to her pores and skin tone. It will have to be both darker, like this, or lighter and icier, like this.
What I love: Constance’s half-up wavy hair (the wrapped ponytail is a pleasing contact) and semi-iridescent purple lip. What I might alternate: There’s an excessive amount of occurring. I might tone down the eyeshadow and blush and ditch the cruel waterline liner. Also, I believe her brows may well be brushed throughout (if now not up) with a strong-hold tinted forehead gel.
What I love: Jennifer’s messy updo with a side-swept bang. And her bronde hair color is perfection. What I might alternate: As standard, she’d glance nice with 1/2 as a lot make-up. The base is just too gentle and the contouring is just too darkish… and I might reasonably see standard lips than this darkish ring at all times. It’s now not fooling any person!
