American Music Awards 2012: Red Carpet Beauty Trends (GALLERY)
The eye-catching fashions weren't the only trends turning heads on the red carpet at this year's American Music Awards.
From punchy pouts and notice-me-nails to bobs, waves and elegant updos, stars matched their glam gowns with equally glamorous hair and makeup.
Gwen Stefani, Carrie Underwood, Lucy Hale and Ke$ha all wore their hair down in Veronica Lake-esque waves, while Elisha Cuthbert and Heidi Klum countered their gold gowns with slicked-back updos. Bobs -- faux and real -- and classic updos rounded out the night's hot hair trends.
But last night wasn't just about the hair.
When it came to makeup, it was all about the lips. From Hayden Panettiere's magenta lips and Stefani's classic red to Nikki Minaj's hot pink pout, there was plenty of bright lipstick popping against all those shimmery styles. On the other end of the spectrum, Taylor Swift, Klum, Jordan Sparks and Ginnifer Goodwin balanced their sparkly dresses with nude lips and natural glows.
