The Beauty Trick All The It Girls Used At The VMAs This Year

Share

The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet was a showstopper teeming with amazing fashion, but it’s the beauty looks we can’t get enough of, from slicked-back hair to glitter roots to bold lips. And we couldn’t help but notice an eye-shadow trend that made its way onto several of our favorite It girls. Everyone from Taylor Hill to Rita Ora stunned in unconventional smoky eyes involving bronzy tones and even hints of sparkle. Take a look at the starlets who brought it, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Hailey Baldwin

Hailey's copper smoky eye was subtle yet noticeable enough to stand out with her brand-new haircut.

Taylor Hill

Makeup artist Hung Vanngo gave Taylor a winged-out black smoky eye. He also topped off the inner corners with copper-toned glitter.

Stella Maxwell

Stella's red smoky eye is also the work of Hung Vanngo, and was made more intense by smudging some rouge under the waterline as well.

Rita Ora

All eyes might've been on Rita's statement updo, but her charcoal smoky eye deserves just as much attention.

Joan Smalls

Joan's golden bronze smoky eye perfectly matched her top, and her nude lips added the right amount of contrast.

Holland Roden

The Teen Wolf actress's eye shadow was color-blocked with gray tones above the eyelid and copper underneath the waterline.
