AMAs Beauty Looks You Can Wear Every Day!

As a longtime beauty junkie, I’ve always looked forward to every award show on TV. I can’t help it. I love seeing all my favorite celebrities come together for a fun night of music, TV or film. I love the special performances. If someone I like wins an award and gives an acceptance speech, I get a little emotional. It’s all so magical. I’m not going to lie though, when it comes to award shows, my favorite part has and will always be the Red Carpet.

This past Sunday, the American Music Awards took place and while I normally look forward to the edgier beauty choices that music award shows tend to offer, this year, I found some of the subtler beauty looks more appealing. Sure, edgy beauty can be fun for a weekend night, but it’s also nice to find some inspiration you can try Monday through Friday. While there were so many great beauty looks from Sunday night, three ladies balanced their beauty looks perfectly: Hailee Steinfeld, Olivia Munn and Gigi Hadid.

When it comes to Red Carpet beauty and style, Hailee Steinfeld never disappoints. Since her Red Carpet debut in 2010, she has beautifully blossomed into a lovely young lady. This last Sunday, she wowed with her tousled waves, gorgeous full brows and bright plum lip. Paired with neutral eye shadow and false lashes, she hit this look out of the ballpark. To recreate her lip color, I recommend Smashbox’s Always On Liquid Lipstick in Girl Gang. For Hailee’s tousled tresses, you’ll want Sarah Potempa’s Beachwaver to create natural-looking waves. Spritz some of Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Infusion Spray for some added body and texture.

This year, Olivia Munn dazzled at the American Music Awards with her peachy-dream inspired makeup. Her bronzed cheeks and youthful-looking peach lip gave us such a summery vibe we almost forgot it was fall! You can easily recreate this look by using Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey on your cheekbones. Get her peachy lip with bareMinerals’ Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick in Nudist (a warm, beige peach). If you want to go all out with luminous skin, you’ll love Stila’s Aqua Glow Serum Foundation.

American Music Awards Host Gigi Hadid brought her runway glamour to the stage Sunday with her brushed up brows, brushed back hair and coral-pink lips. While Gigi may be a professional model, there’s so much we can take away from her look to get runway ready in minutes. Instead of stressing about finding that perfect part in your hair, tease it and brush it back for a quick hairstyle that always looks glamourous. Have a bristle boar brush handy and a strong hairspray like Redken’s Control Addict 28. Natural and full-looking brows are back and if you want brushed up brows like Gigi’s, then keep them in place with BrowGal’s Eyebrow Gel. Copy Gigi’s bright lip with Lipstick Queen Cupid's Bow Jumbo Lip Stick/Liner in Metamorphoses.
