MTV EMAs 2012 Beauty: From Taylor Swift's Fringe To Kim Kardashian's Ponytail

GALLERY >> MTV EMAs Best Beauty

It was the MTV European Music Awards last night so as you can imagine, there were some pretty ace hair and makeup looks going on. Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Rita Ora was out in force looking nothing short of fabulous.

As always, Kim K stole the show with her classic beauty look. She had piled on the mascara and black eyeshadow by the bucket load and actually we really like it. We like that she has kept her hair slicked back and simple as well to off set all the maquillage. Nice work Kim!

Heidi Klum

Supermodel mum Heidi look gorgeous as always. Most of all we are all loving what she's done with her hair, all slicked to one side and a little different to what she normally goes for. It keeps her looking young and a touch more on the casual/cool side for such a big music event.

Isabelli Fontana

Isabelli was looking as cool and sexy as she always does with her black leather ensemble and makeup to match. Just like Kim, she's working a dark eye with serious style and has gone for a very sheer pink lip to tone it down. We're girl-crushing on her rich brown locks as well and are dying to know the secret to how she keeps them so glossy...

Taylor Swift

Taylor was looking quite the part with another sultry, smokey eye at the Awards. We're thoroughly enjoying her 60's style fringe too and there's debate on the beauty desk about who might give it a try. For flawless skin like Taylor, don't forget to wear a primer and decent foundation on your face.

Gwen Stefani

Gwen, who played at the EMA's last night, was looking foxy and fresh with a high impact red lip and masses of mascara. To keep a lip like this more on the understated side, keep it matte and touch up every 30 minutes to avoid and cracks or smudges. We adore your blonde locks too Gwen (always have) and are piling on the mascara too today in tribute of your beauty...

Alicia Keys

Comeback queen Alicia Keys was looking hot to trot too on the red carpet. If there's anyone that suits this angular hair do better, we'd love to know. Another killer red lip to note, which is a little more glossy than Gwen's but makes a punchy statement. Oh and how could we go without mentioning those amazing brows - just the right thickness, colour and shape. Top marks to you Miss Keys!

Carly Rae Jepson

Another red lip! That's quite a few we've noted now and there seems to be a bit of a trend for them... We dig your fringe Carly and those thick, dark locks of hair too. Perhaps it's the return of the fringe on the A-list circuit too? Carly favours a much more pale complexion and has been clever to add a few subtle contours to her cheeks and decolletage as well.

Rita Ora

Right, that's it, it is now officially a proper trend. Yet another winning red lip we've spotted and we have decided to whip out our own favourite red lippy to copy these cool cats. Rita's suits her skin tone and matches her gorgeous outfit too. The best thing about a full-on red is that you can get away with little other makeup as it makes such a bold statement. Good going lady.
