1. Cara Delevingne’s Side-Swept Hair and Smoky Makeup

Cara was one of the bombshells with the best makeup look and hairdo yesterday night, showing off a combo that’s so wearable on different occasions. She styled her long locks into her signature side-swept ‘do with a deep side part, while her makeup accents were placed on the brown smoky eyes and bushy eyebrows. This is such a fresh and effortless chic look, while still being absolutely elegant and feminine.

2. Gigi Hadid’s Backcombed Hair and Bronze Glow

Gigi was all sunshine in that canary yellow ensemble that was enhanced by the makeup style she wore. Putting the stress on the healthy glow of her perfectly bronzed skin, she stayed away from any bright color accents, instead enhancing the beauty of her eyes with long and thick eyelashes. The backcombed sleek hairstyle with a little volume made her look slightly older than her real age, but it was still classy and modern.

3. Karlie Kloss’ Au Naturel Look

Easy, flowing hair with a center part and a no makeup makeup look with little to no color accents added on the face always make a timeless pair, an eternal beauty trend we can always turn to when facing a style dilemma. This is the favorite beauty look of Karlie Kloss as well, who has channeled it numerous times both in the streets and on the red carpet, including yesterday’s event.

4. Taylor Swift’s Bold Cat Eyes

Taylor Swift decided to ditch her iconic Old-Hollywood-style beauty look with the red lipstick and broke the mold debuting a fresh new look that’s still absolutely gorgeous and inspiring. While her hair was gathered into a side-parted low ponytail, it was the heavy cat eye makeup that stole the spotlight instantly looking so eye-catching on the background of the fresh, nude face.

7. Aubrey O’Day’s Elaborate Braids

Although most of the celebs went for more effortless hairdos mostly giving preference to loose hair, we still spotted some complicated and pretty braided hairstyles yesterday night. Aubrey O’Day incorporated two types of braids in her look, pairing crown French braids with fishtail pigtails. Though this ‘do may seem slightly difficult to style on your own, it’s actually pretty easy to copy. To balance things out, she paired this elaborate hairdo with a natural makeup look that put the focus on long Bambi lashes.

8. Rita Ora’s Khaleesi-Inspired Look

Winter is coming, so Rita Ora decided to channel Khaleesi yesterday night styling her long platinum blonde hair into a tight knotted half-up, half-down hairdo that swept all the hair back off of her face, putting the focus on her beautiful features. Nude makeup with heavy smoky eyes perfectly matched this hairdo.

9. Nicki Minaj’s Edgy Eyeliner Flick

Both hair color and style wise, Nicki Minaj’s hairstyle was identical with that of Kylie Jenner’s, however her makeup choice concentrated on extra-long edgy eyeliner flicks on nude eyelids that added so much drama to her face. Wise it was to pair this kind of eye makeup with nude glossy lips and slightly bronzed skin.
