So get your makeup kit and brushes ready, it’s time to bring your A-game by recreating these red carpet makeup looks.
#1 Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift stuck to a low-key makeup look this year at the 2019 American Music Awards. The singer ditched her red lips on the red carpet and instead opted for a nude lipstick. She completed her look with subtle smokey cat eyes and blushed cheeks.
For her performance, however, she brought back her signature red lips for that now-iconic performance.
#2 Selena Gomez
The ‘Hate You To Love Me’ singer made sure that she had all eyes on her with her lime green dress but what we’re interested in was her makeup that left her looking like a glowing goddess. With her golden-bronze eyeshadow and matte nude lipstick, Selena proves that you don’t need heavy makeup to look beautiful.
While she stuck to minimal makeup on the American Music Awards red carpet, for her performance however, the singer went all out with silver coloured lids and kohl-rimmed eyes.
#3 Camila Cabello
If you want to look ethereal then just take a page from Camila Cabello’s book. The singer is no stranger to pulling off the minimal makeup look while maintaining a gorgeous glow and this year at the 2019 American Music Awards was no different. The "Señorita" singer looked like a princess in her beautiful gown and on-point makeup. Smokey bronzed eyes, nude lipstick and highlighter on the right points of her face was all it took to get that faultless look.
#4 Shawn Mendez
Why should only girls have all the fun! Guys wearing makeup should come as no surprise to you by now and those who walked the red carpet definitely had a bit of makeup on. Shawn Mendez wasn’t afraid to add a bit of colour to his cheeks with blush and hide those under-eye bags with a little concealer.
#5 Dua Lipa
After performing in Mumbai last week, Dua Lipa brought the heat at the 2019 American Music Awards red carpet. The singer seemed to go for an au-natural look by ditching all eye makeup and opting for a pinkish nude lipstick. Seems like nude shades were the hit colour at the AMAs this year. She completed her look with a bit of highlighter on the corners of her eyes and perfectly shaped, brushed up brows.
Halsey went for a more dramatic theme at the 2019 American Music Awards. The singer not only stood out with her puffy floral ensemble but also with her watercolour eyeshadow. Halsey rocked shades of pink, blue and even orange all around her eyes and brows. A few jewels near her eyes and a glossy brown lipstick was all she needed to complete this look.
#7 Katherine Langford
13 Reasons Why star, Katherine Langford was the lady in red at the 2019 American Music Awards. While the actress looked stunning in her red off-shoulder dress, her makeup was definitely fashion-forward, to say the least. With her fiery red eyeshadow and gold dots embedded in her hair, she was a sight to behold.
#8 Christina Aguilera
Looks like Christina may have just perfected the full arched brows look. Those brows along with shimmery pale bronze eyeshadow, neatly lined eyes and glossy nude lips paired with her white ensemble created a flawless angelic-like look.
Singer Lizzo is one of the best new artists out there and she proved that she was born to walk the red carpet with her notable makeup look at the 2019 American Music Awards. The singer opted for monochromatic makeup with her orange eyeshadow and heavily blushed cheeks. Her crystal bubble nails were another thing you couldn’t miss on the red carpet.
Ciara slayed the American Music Awards red carpet with her dramatic eye makeup look. The singer looked stunning with her gold-covered lids and cobalt blue eyeliner. She made sure that her eyes did all the talking by keeping the rest of her makeup simple.
