Alongside the drama of the red carpet, there were also beauty moments: From Doja Cat’s metallic-eye moment to Sam Smith’s plump pink lips, these were the best beauty looks.

The Cat Eye That Will Surely Catch TikTok’s Attention: Doja Cat

We can always count on our lord and savior Doja Cat. Her pixie cut brought the edge to her look, but the star of the show was her inner winged eyeliner contrasted with metallic eye shadow in the corner of her lower lid. The kids will be attempting this look on TikTok in 24 hours (it’s me, I’m the kids).

Best Slick Back: Cardi B

What does Cardi B do with her hair when she’s wearing the most dramatic dress of the night? Wear a sleek low ponytail down her back. It was the classiest hair for the moment.

Most Accessorized Hair: Tems

Tems adorned her buns with pearls that matched the pearls draped on her dress. The ultimate accessory.

Most Hydrated Lips: Sam Smith

Move over, Hailey Bieber. Sam Smith has the real peptide glaze: Their bubblegum-pink and glossed-up lips were the only beauty moment we needed.

Best Bangs: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift also had a great lip moment — a bold red one. But her signature bangs swept across her brows, meeting her eyelids at a perfect point to highlight metallic-blue eye shadow.

Most Swoon-Worthy Blush: Kacey Musgraves

Musgraves showed us that there’s no such thing as too much pink. As if her pink ostrich feathers weren’t enough, she had flushed cheeks that blended with her rosy eye shadow.

Most Snatched Bun: Queen Latifah

Honestly, where is Queen Latifah’s hair-care line? Whether it’s a silk press or updo, she has the best red-carpet hair. Her bun tonight was a detailed and polished moment that highlighted her face.

Best Singular Baby Hair: Lizzo

Rather than a forehead full of swirly baby hairs, Lizzo wore a single baby hair swooped in the center of her forehead sticking out of her avant-garde floral caped headpiece.
