MTV VMA 2014 Makeup: Charli XCX

2014 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

While I could leave her Josie Grossy get-up (shout-out to Fashionista for nailing that reference) for her pre-show performance, Charli XCX’s VMA red carpet makeup look was on point. Here, makeup artist Colby Smith went bold with a bright red lip to mirror Charli’s bold Jeremy Scott x Moschino animal print ensemble. Here, the beauty breakdown.
