The MTV Europe Music Awards are back to being a live event this year, held in Budapest, Hungary. Hosted by rapper Saweetie, we're expecting an excitement-filled night full of incredible performances, heartfelt speeches, and epic fashion choices from some of our favorite musicians. And whilst it's not the main spectacle of the show, we're also looking forward to some seriously impressive hair and makeup moments on both the stage and the red carpet.
We didn't have to wait long, because right off the bat some of Europe and the UK's biggest stars showed up with incredible beauty looks. Griff arrived with her signature bubble ponytail, this time decorated in pearls for the occasion. Olly Alexander rocked his orange hair, which coordinated perfectly with his printed dress, and Polish singer Daria Zawiałow tried out the 3D makeup trend with silver foil eyeliner and crystals along her lower lashes.

Saweetie's Glamorous Winged Liner at the MTV EMAs 2021
The rapper, who served as host for the event, started the evening with her red hair slicked back into a chignon — and dramatic winged liner with gorgeous feathery lashes for good measure.
Jeny BSG's Poofy Pigtails at the MTV EMAs 2021
We love the French dancer and choreographer's adorable voluminous pigtails. She captured the process on her Instagram, which included her hairstylist slicking her natural hair into pigtails and then adding extensions to get the voluminous poofs.
Griff's Pearl-Studded Cheeks and Ponytail at the MTV EMAs 2021
Griff loves a bubble ponytail, and this time she chose to decorate her signature style with a string of pearls that ran between the top and bottom hair elastics. Keeping with the theme, her makeup artist glued flat-backed pearls along her left cheek, almost like a 3-dimensional highlighter.
Harriet Rose's Aquamarine Eyeliner at the MTV EMAs 2021
With graphic blue-green eyeliner, the Kiss FM UK presenter and DJ added a tiny splash of color to her overall white-and-grey ensemble.
Daria Zawiałow's Metal Eyeliner at the MTV EMAs 2021
Look closely and you'll see that the Polish singer is wearing reflective three-dimensional silver wings at the outer corners of her eyes, and a sprinkling of iridescent glitter along her top and bottom lashes.
Manu Gavassi's Copper Mullet at the MTV EMAs 2021
Love it or hate it, the mullet has been one of 2021's most unexpected hairstyle trends, which Brazilian singer-songwriter Manu Gavassi pulled off beautifully in a warm copper color.
Victoria De Angelis's Dramatic Wings at the MTV EMAs 2021
When it comes to smoky eye makeup, Måneskin never disappoints, and the MTV EMAs were no different. For bassist Victoria De Angelis, the band's makeup artist Chantal Ciaffardini executed dramatic black wings with matte brown shadow that filled in the space between the top of the wings and her brows. Look closely and you can see some flecks of glitter across her lids.
Ethan Torchio's Glittery Black Wings at the MTV EMAs 2021
Ciaffardini appeared to use the same gold-flecked black shadow on the brand's drummer, Ethan Torchio. The hint of shimmer gives the eyeshadow pigment almost a wet look.
Thomas Raggi's Sparkly Black Smoky Eyes at the MTV EMAs 2021
The same shimmery black eyeshadow was used on guitarist Thomas Raggi, and matched his diamond-printed top perfectly.
Oumi Janta's Blue Lipstick at the MTV EMAs 2021
The roller-skating sensation didn't shy away from bright color, contrasting her yellow matching set with a deep navy-blue lipstick.

Olly Alexander's Orange Hair at the MTV EMAs 2021
Alexander has rocked this shade of orange for a while now, but we love how it perfectly coordinated with his colorful sheer dress.
