Beauty at the 2016 VMAs

Red Carpet Ready With Stunning Looks From the Video Music Awards

MTV VMAs are legendary for good reason – year after year they offer a tribute to music’s most buzzworthy names and jaw-dropping moments in pop culture. This year’s showcase was no exception, and we’ve rounded up top tips & tricks for recreating the evening’s best beauty moments with Palladio Beauty’s range of color cosmetics - available on and at Sally’s, Ulta and specialty retailers nationwide and Keratin Complex available at and fine salons.

For a cat-eye fit for royalty, and Queen B, try Palladio’s Fifty-Fifty Cat-Eye Liquid Liner + Smoky Kajal ($15), a dual-ended professional eye styling wonder with an ultra-soft Kajal crayon on one end and a super-precise fiber-tip liner on the other - Ideal to create a variety of smoky and defined looks.

Top off your “Formation”- ready look and slay with a muted, frosted lilac lip color like Palladio’s Herbal Lipstick in 'Amethyst' ($7), and achieve sculpted cheekbones with Palladio’s two-sided tool, The Definer: Contour & Highlight Duo ($12) -- a universally flattering duo of matte bronzer and shimmery cream to create unbelievable, goof-proof definition.

For a flexible hold and shine like the Queen B, go for Keratin Complex Flex Flow Flexible Shaping Hairspray ($25).

For a striking Rose-red pout like Ms. Amber’s, try Palladio’s Dreamy Matte Lipcolor ($7) in ‘Scarlet’ or ‘Red Carpet’ – luxurious, creamy shades of crimson that flatter all skin tones, with a richly pigmented formula enhanced with Aloe Leaf Extract and Safflower Oil to moisturize the lips while Vitamins C and E protect against free-radical damage.

If you prefer a liquid formula, Palladio’s best-selling Velvet Matte Cream Lip Color ($7) delivers lush, velvety coverage with a lasting, rich matte finish – infused with Green Tea and Vitamin E to protect, nourish and hydrate. Try ‘Panne’ for a fire-engine red like Amber Rose.

Achieve Stella Maxwell’s flawlessly of-the-moment scarlet smoky eye with Palladio’s Matte Shadow Duo in ‘Soiree’ ($7) for an ultra-velvety matte, highly-pigmented finish.

Complete your look by adding enviable definition and effortlessly beachy texture by spritzing in Keratin Complex’s Sweet Definition Sugar Texturizing Mist ($17), an anti-salt texture spray that delivers tousled, sultry waves with the help of sugar cane extract and without the dryness of traditional salt-based sprays.
