The MTV EMA’s took place last night in Frankfurt. It was an evening of glitz, glamour, gorgeous gowns and red lips.
Taylor Swift took home three awards for Best Female, Best Look and Best Live. We don’t think anyone inspires fringe envy quite like Taylor but there was something missing when she first hit the red carpet for photographers. Her signature red lip was no where in sight but fear not, before the time came for Taylor to ascend the stage to collect her first gong the red lip was firmly in place.
Taylor wasn’t the only scarlet lady in attendance… EMA’s performer Rita Ora left the gothic look from her MOBO’s appearance at home and instead accessories her flame red lace dress with a matching red on her lips.
Carly Rae Jepson took her lips a darker shade of red and walked away with the awards for Best Song for ‘Call Me Maybe’ and BestPUSH.
Red lips needn’t be scary. There is a red to suit everyone – a good rule of thumb is the paler you are the more blue you need in your red and the darker you are the warmer it needs to be - look for one with more orange. However a good fail-safe red that suits ALL skin tones is MAC lipstick in Lady Danger: it strikes the perfect balance of blue and orange.
The red stopped there but the excitement of the night didn’t – Kim Kardashian was contoured within an inch of her life and would have won an award for Longest Lashes (if there was one). Her smoky eye didn’t do her any good though when she took an tumble in front of the entire audience while presenting an award.
Sixties Siren Lana Del Rey was aiming for the heavens with her bouffant while she picked up an award for Best Alternative. We love her long oval ‘Betty Draper’ nails that we spied while she was cuddling up to Taylor.
