Sunday night, November 22, brought the American Music Awards to Los Angeles for the evening, honoring the likes of Justin Bieber, One Direction and Taylor Swift with some of the most prestigious music awards of the year! And not only was there musical talent in abundance gracing the red carpet for the evening, but we also spotted ample beauty skills to spare, giving us look after inspiring look to bring to you lucky girls! Let's take a look at the best in makeup from the night...
Sultry winter colors
Many stars embraced the new season by embracing those dark, warm wintery shades to fight the cold, with singer Selena Gomez turning many heads with her burgundy red winged eyeshadow and XXL lashes: this look is definitely going on our Christmas list this year!
Next up, we couldn't take our eyes off of Demi Lovato 's stunning transformation into a 1920s-inspired vintage vixen, with her perfectly wavy bob and the combination of both her dark, defined eye makeup and her oxblood red lip with a slight ombré effect.
That's our holiday party makeup sorted!
Next up, we couldn't help but mention that red carpet, evening-makeup staple that is the smoky eye! Of course, every star at the ceremony worked their's completely differently with stunning results, like Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson, who opted to contrast her icy blue eyes against a sultry chocolate eyeshadow shade - which equally brought out the dark undertones of her new bronde hair color!
Singer Ciara paired her eye-catching sheer and beaded Reem Acra gown with a similarly shimmering eye-makeup look, opting for a black smoky eye with silver dusted around her tearducts and under her lower lashes. She then balanced her eyes against matte light berry-toned lips, using a slightly darker lip liner to create a gentle ombré effect.
And the award goes to...
Our favorite look of the night? Oh no, that's too hard, we couldn't possibly pick between so many gorgeous stars! But if we had to give one particular shout out, it would have to be to the ever-versatile Kat Graham, who once again stole the show with her audacious beauty look! The star chose to team a lilac eyeshadow shade with a grape underliner, which she then contrasted against a bright touch of yellow around her inner eye!
