While many are tuning in to the American Music Awards to see Gwen Stefani perform her new single or Jennifer Lopez kill it as host, we're more about the beauty looks that these ladies are serving up on the red carpet. The musicians in attendance on Sunday night know how to put on a show — and not just when they're performing. Their impressive hair and makeup are prize worthy on their own. Braids, sultry lips, and glowing skin are just a few of the head-turning looks you'll see when you read on.
