It was a star-studded line-up at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, and our eyes were locked on the red carpet as we scouted for the best hair and makeup looks. Here are our favourites…
Charlize proves that you *can* have your hair in a bun, even if your hair is super-short. Simply twist and wrap into a tight knot, and mist with a light hairspray all over to tame flyaways.
Go for Gigi’s toned down makeup look if you’ve got a new haircut to show off - just add black mascara and bronzed cheeks, and you’re good to go.
Dying to try the slicked-back look? Scoop out some styling wax (you’ll need about a 20 cent piece worth), warm it in your palms, and comb your hair back with your fingers.
Halle looked radiant as ever on the red carpet with her signature choppy hair, dark smoky eyes and glowing complexion. Get the look by using dewy foundation and sweeping some highlighter along your cheekbones.
Dishevelled locks have been one of the most popular looks this year, with Lizzy opting for loose waves and an uneven fringe to match. Try this at home with a straightener - just bend the tool back and forth in large sections, and a spritz of sea salt spray to finish.
Jessica turned heads at this event with her fiery hair (this time chopped into a shoulder-sweeping style), red lipstick and kohl-lined eyes for good measure. Our best tip - keep the look modern with matte makeup textures.
We can’t get enough of actress Kelley Jakle’s look; it’s simply gorgeous. Do the same by casually throwing your hair into a loose bun, add lashings of black mascara and finish with a bright pink lipstick to offset your muted outfit.
