2015 MTV #VMAs Beauty Trend Report
Tonight, MTV will host their annual salute to music videos with the 2015 Video Music Awards. We can always count on the VMA’s to provide crazy red carpet looks, an even crazier host (this year host with the most is Miley Cyrus), someone getting pissed off about something, and some truly amazing beauty looks.
To celebrate beauty on the VMA red carpet, COVERGIRL held a pre-show get together talking all things trends at the COVERGIRL x MTV’s Got You Covered: A Beauty Trends Forecast & Celebration. The included some of who’s who like Nicole Richie, Style Icon, Designer & TV Personality, Jake Bailey, celebrity makeup artist, Tori Kelly, singer and songwriter, Nessa, Co-host of MTV’s “Girl Code Live”, Amanda Steele, makeup and beauty expert, and Gaby Wilson, MTV Style Editor and they talking about all the upcoming trends and which ones need to stay and how to translate some of the VMA’s most iconic beauty looks to everyday.
So which beauty trends are the ones we should really care about?
FRESH FACE: A fresh face is always nice to see! Contouring makes sense for the red carpet because of the harsh lighting, but it’s not the greatest idea for every day. Keep it simple and keep a clean face, try COVERGIRLClean Liquid Makeup Foundation. Tori Kelly specifically was all about this trend and said she’s not into heavy face makeup for her performances and fears a “caked” up look on the carpet.
#LASHFAME: It’s all about the lashes! It’s a total must – no questions asked. Jake Bailey spoke how he is obsessed with COVERGIRL’s Super Sizer Mascara because the formula is the best for volume and the tiny wand allows him to get in there and coat each lash. Artists want to stand out on the red carpet and stunning eyes start at the lash.
CLASSIC CAT EYE: Amanda Steele mentioned how her followers are always asking her how she does her cat eye, and her response that night was, ‘PRACTICE!’ Find a product that has the perfect tip, like COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Liquid Liner, to help control where you’re going for the perfect line. Jake Bailey also added that this is Katy Perry’s signature look and loves a good, solid cat eye.
BOLD LIP: Bold lips are safe when you’re looking for that pop. Make sure to use a lipstick that goes on creamy and will stain your lips. When artists hit the red carpet, they need a lip color that won’t fade, like COVERGIRL Outlast Longwear Lipstick, so make sure to find a color that will stick with you the whole night through. Nicole Richie mentioned how she feels an “orange lip” is hot and a great shade to go for.
CONFIDENCE: The panel agreed, at the end, YOU create the trend. The beauty and the inspirations come from within. Be adventurous in trying new trends and evening setting them yourself, stand strong and let your personality shine!
