The Hands-Down Best Beauty Moments From the MTV Europe Music Awards
The 2020 MTV EMA might not have been exactly like previous years' due to the coronavirus pandemic and current restrictions in place, but that doesn't mean celebrities didn't bring their A games when it came to their hair, makeup, and nails.
Although there wasn't a traditional red carpet set up, stars still got get dressed up for the virtual ceremony, which took place all over the world. Winnie Harlow gave us Old Hollywood vibes with a bold red lip and soft waves. Little Mix member and award show presenter Leigh-Anne Pinnock wore beautiful locs and shimmery eyeshadow. And we couldn't take our eyes of Karol G's incredible long chain-embellished nail art.
Get a closer look at some of the best beauty looks at the 2020 MTV EMA ahead.
Alicia Keys at the 2020 MTV EMA
Alicia Keys went for her signature barely-there beauty look to make sure her side braid and accessories stood out.
Karol G at the 2020 MTV EMA
We almost didn't notice Karol G's butt-length braid because of her incredible nails. The Colombian singer-songwriter wore superlong black chain-embellished and jewel-encrusted nail art.
Zara Larsson at the 2020 MTV EMA
If you ever needed encouragement to try out dark brown lip liner, then allow Zara Larsson to be that encouragement. She wore a '90s-style lip and strong cat eyeliner to the virtual awards and we loved it.
Doja Cat at the 2020 MTV EMA
Doja Cat's blunt bob and bangs might've just given us an excuse to get a fringe again after all.
Winnie Harlow at the 2020 MTV EMA
Winnie Harlow was the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour at the MTV EMA with soft waves, a true red lip, and plenty of diamond accessories — including her nails.
Bebe Rexha at the 2020 MTV EMA
We can't take our eyes off Bebe Rexha's bright red hair and we adore that she matched her nails with her hair, too.
Anne-Marie at the 2020 MTV EMA
Anne-Marie went with a simple classic for her nail design: the french manicure. Her candy-pink hair and pastel-blue eyeliner matched the rest of her look perfectly.
Anitta at the 2020 MTV EMA
Brazilian singer Anitta chose to wear her hair in a platinum-blond bob for the occasion, finished off with black half-moon nails to match her gown.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock at the 2020 MTV EMA
Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock wore superlong locs and lots of shimmer on her eyelids and cheekbones, which made for one incredibly pretty beauty look.
Becca Dudley at the 2020 MTV EMA
Becca Dudley, MTV's preshow presenter, matched her eyeshadow and lips to her beautiful red jumpsuit and finished the look off with a brushed-back wet-look hairdo.
Raye at the 2020 MTV EMA
Raye went for a pretty pink makeup look for the evening and paired it with a french manicure that was jazzed up with some teeny gems.
