The 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards took place on Monday and although COVID-19 may have demanded a strict guest list and tight regulations, it didn’t stop attendees, hosts and performers from pulling out their beauty best. And due to the wonders of TV magic, we were all still able to watch the entertainment unfold from the comfort of our homes.
As always, we had our eyes firmly peeled for the best beauty looks of the night, and it was no surprise to see red carpet favourites like Doja Cat, Little Mix and Alicia Keys effortlessly pull off some truly incredible looks.
Doja Cat rocked a Joan Jett-style black shag wig for the night and tempered the look with makeup that focused on creamy pearlescent neutrals and a stunning cat-eye.
Ummm can we please talk about this hair??? Undoubtedly one of our favourite hair moments all evening, the Little Mix singer showcased her stunning lengths with a dramatic twirl on the carpet.
Larrson has embraced the retro-futuristic clash of the ‘60s with her sleek high pony, frosted lid and delicately flicked eyeliner, channeling the iconic Judy Jetson.
As always Miss Keys has embraced a natural look on the carpet, opting for a neutral-toned wardrobe and hip-grazing braid to showcase her style.
Rimmel ambassador Rita Ora delivered the drama with a peach-toned smokey eye and lip combo that was partially hidden by a delicate mesh fascinator.
From her baby blue eyeshadow, to her matte mauve lips and French-tipped nails, Anne Marie is really nailing the early ‘00s beauty trends and we are here for it.
Presenter Barbara Palvin stunned us with her space buns and Rapunzel waves. The model offset the wild look with minimal eye makeup and a classic red lip.
Stunning singer Madison Beer kept things classically LA with a neutral-toned makeup moment that celebrated all things bronzed and glossy.
Jade joined fellow Little Mix bandmates Leigh-Anne and Perrie on the carpet with a lilac-hued metallic eye that may be just subtle enough for us to actually give a go ourselves at home.
Nothing beats an old Hollywood glam type of beat and Winnie Harlow has showcased that spectacularly with this true red lip, subtle smokey eye and wavy blowout.
Bebe Rexha brought a bit of glam rock energy to the carpet with her cherry red shag, kohl-rimmed eyes and translucent rouge nails.
