The Top 5 Beauty Looks From The CFDA Awards

by Stephanie Montes

The CFDA Awards rolled out the red carpet this evening in New York City, drawing a who’s who of the fashion crowd, all of whom brought their beauty A-game. From Emmy Rossum’s metallic smoky eye to Jhené Aiko’s braided ponytail, these 5 stunning looks didn’t disappoint. Regardless of who actually takes home the evening’s awards, we think the real kudos belong to the artists who kept the hair from frizzing and makeup from smudging on such a rainy night.

Jhené Aiko's Beautiful Braids

Rockin her signature braids, the singer stuns with the perfect nude lip and bold brows, which is all she needs to complement her fire-engine red dress.

Emmy Rossum's Metallic Smoky Eye

The key to pulling off a shimmery and smudgy-looking eye is to keep the rest of your look understated. Groomed brows, peach lips and pulled-back hair looks polished without looking boring.

Gigi Hadid's Peachy Pink Lips

Sure she's beautiful but there's another reason this look works. Keep with warm tones throughout your look. Champagne-colored shadow, golden highlights and a warm-pink lipstick is the perfect summer night beauty look.

Amanda Seyfried's Smudgy Shadow

Get a sultry-looking makeup look by applying a dark shadow on the lower lash line. Avoid looking like a raccoon by breaking out the concealer for those under-eye circles. Pair with a matte foundation and nude lips.

Hilary Rhoda's Strong Brows

You don't have to be born with bushy brows to take the trend for a spin. Fill in eyebrows with a pencil in a shade darker than your hair color and draw on a cat eye.
