Glitter roots, vampy lips, and pierced hair—oh my!

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards were definitely filled with some spectacular performances, note-worthy moments, and some out-of-this-world fashion. However, while we were obsessing over some of the outfits we saw strutting down the red carpet, we also spotted some of the coolest makeup looks that are certainly worth making note of.

A few of our favorite fall runway beauty trends hit the carpet this time around—from Ariana Grande’s crimped ponytail taking cues from Gucci and Vanessa Seward to Halsey’s vampy lip that we saw just about everywhere. And if you haven’t already caught on, pierced hair is going for sure about to be the next big thing—just ask Chloe and Halle Bailey.

While some of these may be a bit more translatable into real life—like Justine Skye’s gorgeously glowy makeup and Amber Rose’s bold red lip, we’re definitely feeling inspired by all (especially, Cassie’s neon yellow hair).
