Beauty Trends from the MTV Movie Awards

Between the Bruno/Eminem “unscripted” debacle to the Twilight multiple award winning mania there were plenty of memorable moments during Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards.  The awards may have been the main attraction, but it’s the pre-show red carpet that made our beauty loving hearts go pitter-pat.  As we watched our favorite celebs arrive, we couldn’t help but notice two big beauty trends emerge but as you’ll see below, whether that trend works is all in the execution.  

Heavily Lined Eyes and Pale Lips

malin-akerman-mtv-movie-awards.jpgWe have two words for Malin Akerman, “Oh honey!”  Is anyone else having Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct flashbacks but in a really bad way?  The hair is way too severe and the skin is way too pale to make this happen. 

miley-cyrus-mtv-movie-awards.jpgMiley Cyrus beamed with a flawless complexion, a flesh toned pout and a smokey eye that made her blue peepers pop.  Paired with loosely pulled back sun kissed hair, she perfectly combines youth and sophistication. 

vanessa-hudgens-mtv-movie-awards.jpgDoes Vanessa Hudgens ever NOT look like a walking Neutrogena ad?  She is the picture of fresh, young and beautiful with her peachy sculpted cheeks, doe-y Bambi eyes and flowing, beachy locks.  Stunning!

Bold Lips and Voluminous Lashes

cameron-diaz-mtv-movie-awards.jpgCameron Diaz may have a smile and laugh that light up a room but this look does her no favors.  Her eyes appear tired and are in serious need of definition and brightening.  The red lip is good but it doesn’t work with the bed head hair and bohemian top. 

lauren-conrad-mtv-movie-awards.jpgWe’re so used to seeing Lauren Conrad rock the bare lip that we were totally caught off guard to see this vampy diva show up on the red carpet.  It’s a whole new LC and we’re loving it.  Of course where would she be without her signature braid?  This look would be a 10 if only she would have put a little more polish into the rest of her ‘do.

megan-fox-mtv-movie-awards.jpgMegan Fox, what happened?  Between your mary-kate-eat-a-sandwich figure to your slicked back nightmare of a hairstyle, you got this beyond wrong.  Your face is flawless and magazine cover worthy.  If only you had eaten lunch and pulled back your hair into a sleek pony, we could have called you the best look of the night.
