If there’s one word to describe the VMA style this year, it’s “fierce.” From Nicki Minaj’s candy raver outfit to Katy Perry’s Asian-inspired ensemble, the ladies BUH-ROUGHT it on the red carpet. And when it came to their makeup, it was no different! VMA house artist Jessie J and Jersey Shore ladies Snooki and JWOWW fierceified (What? That’s a word.) their makeup looks with super dramatic eyes that made a lasting impression.
Snooks went glamazon with glittering gold eye shadow paired with a dark smoky eye. She lined her upper and lower lids with a pure black pencil and extended her black eye shadow up the corners of her eyes. She even played up her lower lashes to really make her peepers pop. She kept the rest of her look simple with a creamy coral blush and nude lips (her fave!).
Jessie J matched her sparkly outfit to her eyes by placing purple rhinestones just beneath her peepers. She did a traditional silver smoky eye with million-mile-long eyelashes and finished her look with a glossy mauve lipstick.
JWOWW put all other smoky eyes to shame with the *DUN DUN* MEGA SMOKY EYE. She lined her waterline in charcoal black and extended her eye shadow into a sharp cat eye. She added a touch of color to her lids with a hint of gold and highlighted her brow bone with a swipe of white eye shadow. JWOWW paired her standout eyes with a peachy cream blush and glossy nude lips.
