Taylor Swift! Ke$ha! Who rocked the red carpet from a beauty perspective? Here are my picks!
Last’s night’s American Music Awards was filled with some really great – and some not so great – beauty looks! Who looked amazing and who looked like a hot mess? Let’s see if you agree with my picks:
Best: Taylor Swift – Arguably, Taylor not only had one of the best looks (hello, supermodel!) but the biggest transformations of pretty much the entire year! The sleek hair, the sultry makeup – this look is full of win.
Worst: Ke$ha – <sigh> Where do I start? The bad arts & crafts eyebrows? The gunmetal lipstick? The bottle of hair gel that died for nothing? Not a fan.
Best: Miley Cyrus – Looking soft, pretty and amazing. Her hair looked amazing and her makeup went beautifully with her Marchesa gown. Love!
Worst: Kelly Osbourne – Usually I’m a fan of Kelly’s retro looks, but this is 80′s gone wrong. She has a round face and the rounded ends of this haircut make her head look super tiny. The eye makeup is also a little too much.
Best: Katy Perry - Again, Katy knows what works for her. Love the long curled locks, defined eye makeup and the pink lip. It’s a great mix of cute and sexy.
Worst: Mandy Moore - I actually like her rich hair color, but this makeup look washes her out; her skin is too pale for metallic bronze colors. Her hair also looks kind of half done.
Best: Rihanna – I really like the curls and the green eye shadow is really lovely. Great lashes and the light pink lip was a great decision. She looked great.
Worst: Nicki Minaj – It’s not the blonde hair that I mind or even the green tips. What I don’t like is that the hair is so thin that I can see the track marks of the wig/weave at the crown. The hot pink lip is also competing with everything else she has on.
Best: Whitney Port – LOVE the new hair color! It really makes her eyes pop and it’s great with her skin tone. Also love the makeup.
Worst: Heidi Klum – Her updo is WAY too severe and stiff, especially with that dark eye makeup. It’s usually better to pair softer hair and darker makeup or a severe updo with softer makeup as a general rule.
