Celebrities favoured bold and dazzling eye makeup looks at the American Music Awards.
With the news lipstick sales are down 49% between August to October in the UK and mask wearing widespread in other countries, it’s not surprising celebrities are among those choosing to amp up their eye makeup looks instead, even at events where masks are not mandatory.Â
That was the case at the American Music Awards, where Cara Delevigne and Dua Lipa both walked the red carpet in standout beauty looks that are ripe for recreation as we enter our own subdued, but not completely cancelled, party season.Â
Cara Delevigneâ€™s makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan employed an extended violet eye shadow in a halo all the way around her eyes, blending it out flawlessly in a slightly winged shape and paring with a soft tangerine lip. While the makeup look was modern, Delevigne chose a classic old Hollywood wave for her hair and a silver lamĂ© suit by Dolce & Gabbana to finish the look.Â

Dua Lipa accessorised an embellished, starfish-covered minidress from Versace’s recent S/S21 collection with equally dazzling silver foil eyes, which also paired perfectly when she donned another shimmering Versace mini dress to perform her song Levitate, being hoisted on wires above the Microsoft Theratre in LA as she sang.Â
Other stars wearing bold eye makeup to the event included Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Bebe Rexha and Laverne Cox.
