Beauty Breakdown: Recreate These Flawless Makeup Looks From the 2017 MTV VMAs

Leading ladies Hailey Baldwin and SZA debut Urban Decay’s new Troublemaker mascara.

Urban Decay has given us an insider look at the makeup of three buzzy starlets, including winner of The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Pink. She, it-model Hailey Baldwin and songstress SZA sported stunning profiles courtesy of UD.

Each leading lady debuted the brand’s new Troublemaker mascara – which happens to be sex-proof. Makeup artists responsible for each look gave us a few tips and tricks and even the full product rundown. Follow along below to create your own red carpet-ready look.

Hailey Baldwin

Danika Bedrossian was inspired by Hailey’s show-stopping sequined jumpsuit when dreaming up her makeup look. Prepping her skin with UD’s Rehab Makeup Prep Hydrating Gel, she continued to build a subtle, but sexy look. Her perfect nude lip color is “Backtalk” from the Vice Liquid Lipstick line. The NAKED Skin Foundation kept her face dewy and fresh as the lights and cameras flashed.

SZA

Best New Artist nominee SZA prepped for a night of fun as she attended her first Video Music Awards. Makeup pro Samuel Paul aimed to keep her look light and fresh, to match her new ginger locks. Setting the base with the All Nighter Liquid Foundation, he goes on to bring life back to her face with the Afterglow Powder Blush. For a simple pout, he applied a sheer coat of the Vice Lipstick in “1993” atop the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Pink

The night belonged to Pink as she received one of the most prestigious awards in the music industry. Not only did she walk the carpet but she also performed a medley of her most popular hits. Kathy Jeung set and prepped her face as usual but used the Ultimate Ozone Primer Pencil to keep her lips fresh and crease-free all night. Once her makeup was applied Jeung sealed it all with the De-Slick Setting Spray which promises to control oil in any temperature.
