New York SS '22 last week, the Met Gala in a couple of days, the VMAs earlier tonight — we're really on a hot streak of world-class fashion and beauty looks right now, aren't we? The 2021 MTV VMAs, although a hybrid affair this year — sans audience and including only the performers — was still jam-packed with gorgeous beauty looks that we're still reeling from.

From Doja Cat's violet eyes to Megan Fox's sultry wet hair look, our fave celebs did NOT disappoint when it came to beauty looks at the VMAs. Filled with beauty trends inspired by the '90s and some absolute jaw-dropping looks, scroll ahead as we list some of the best beauty looks spotted at the 2021 MTV VMAs.

We're not exaggerating when we say that Megan Fox's sultry, wet hair look was a clear red carpet winner. The actor's luminous, minimal base was matched with a nude lip and simple cat eyes — but it's her wet yet wavy hair that's the talk of the town. Also, we're going to give her musician boyfriend, Machine Gun Kelly, a little shoutout since he also experimented with a beauty look of his own with facial glitter.


2. Olivia Rodrigo

Pop's hottest gen Z princess Olivia Rodrigo's look checked off all the boxes when it came to 2021 beauty trends. Face framing braids? Check. Butterfly charms weaved into her locks? Check. Long, wispy lashes? Check, and check. Plus, we adore her minimal, dewy base and her otherwise loose waves.


3. Avril Lavigne

Attending an award show where basically everyone’s look is unofficially inspired by the 90s? Leave it to Avril Lavigne to understand the brief. The singer sported long, wispy, voluminous lashes with a barely-there pale pink lipstick while keeping her base minimal. P.S. Are we the only ones who think she's channeling a little bit of Cher from Clueless?


4. Madison Beer

Madison Beer's 2021 MTV VMAs look is a testament to the fact that you can never, ever go wrong with a glossy, dewy makeup look. The singer's carefully blended peach shimmery eyeshadow is matched with rosy cheeks, a perfect, pink glossy pout, and of course, a blinding highlighter. We love to see it.


5. Tinashe

Channelling her inner goth-chic, Tinashe's look is one for the books, especially with the revival of the '90s in beauty. The musician's striking smokey eye is offset with a nude, creamy lip, and we especially dig her big, almost-crimped hair.


6. Normani

With an all-silver fit and the lids to match, Normani's look is beautiful and experimental. We never knew silver shadow and a sharp wing could look this good, coupled with intricate braids and a nude lip? We're in love!
