Taylor Swift Vs. Selena Gomez: The VMA Stars Go Head to Head with Navy Eyeshadow and Red Lips

by Marianne Dabir

This year's MTV Video Music Awards were, as always, a completely fashion-forward affair. We still can't get over some of our favorite looks, especially Selena Gomez's navy peek-a-boo lace gown and Taylor Swift's sparkly cobalt number. But these trendsetting celebs-and super famous BFFs-weren't just dressed in the same color. As they watched the show together from the front row, we couldn't help but notice they were wearing nearly matching makeup looks. (Perhaps they got ready together, too?)

Taylor's short finger waves evoke Old Hollywood sophistication, but her take on the smoky eye and statement lip combo is totally contemporary. Dark blue shadow gets a fresh twist from light blue shadow dusted along the inner corners, and the cool undertones of her rich, red pout pair perfectly with her smoky eye. Full brows and barely-there blush make it totally glamorous yet still youthful and cool.

Selena goes for a slightly more casual take with long straight locks and a glossy cerise kisser. Her winged eyeliner, matched to the color of her dress, is dramatic yet elegant. Bronzed cheeks give her a sun-kissed glow, and mega eyelashes put a luxe finishing touch on her awards show makeup.
