It’s a music awards show. It’s in Las Vegas. Enough reason for music royalty to don their glittery best and descend on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards. Artists showed up in statement hair and makeup and we were floored. From Halsey’s blue and purple metallic makeup to Kiernan Shipka’s glittery lids, every celebrity delivered bold looks on the red carpet. Here are the best.
Taylor Swift’s pastel purple everything
 

Taylor Swift’s pastel purple everything

We love the coordinated look Taylor Swift has put together. Keeping it in the pastel pink and purple shade zone, we love the pale pink lips, the ruffled dress, the starry ear-cuff and the braided low bun. We also love the hint of purple highlights in her braid!

Halsey’s badass purple lip
 

Halsey’s badass purple lip

Halsey wore a bold purple lip with blue eye liner to complement her black and blue gown. When you experiment with your lip colour, make sure to keep the rest of your makeup in tune with the shade. Halsey has done that by keeping her cheeks contoured and we detect a hint of blue-toned blush that just ties the look together.

Kelly Clarkson’s hair that speaks volumes
 

Kelly Clarkson’s hair that speaks volumes

We love Kelly Clarkson’s big, textured slicked back hair. Back comb and create volume at the front and use a hair spray at the roots for hold. Gently comb back while maintaining the volume and slick the sides flat.

Olivia Wilde’s coppery smoke show

Olivia Wilde chose to wear a heavily sequinned shirt gown, and complemented the look with a coppery smokey eye. Play with matte browns, shimmery coppers and champagne golds to create a textured, multidimensional smokey eye.

Kiernan Shipka’s silver eyes with red stars

Kiernan Shipka’s messy waves and silver eyes have us hooked! Her single eyeshadow and glittery red starry accents at the outer corner of her eyes are perfect for the outfit she is wearing! Sweep the eyeshadow starting at the lash line and continuing beyond the crease, finish with mascara.

Sophie Turner’s chiselled cheeks

Sansa Stark may be laying careful plans to win against the Lannisters, but Sophie Turner sure has won the game of contour hands down with this carefully sculpted look. Carefully placed blush, contour and concealer (that also acts as a matte highlight) can be used to create the perfect set of cheeks!

Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s silver eye and berry lips

Silver eyes and berry lips are a staple with Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and we don’t mind! A heavily embellished gown, Tiffany’s diamonds and Nick Jonas for arm candy, doesn’t leave much required in terms of makeup!
