Last night at the 2017 MTV VMAs, Vanessa Hudgens brought the heat to the red carpet, and it’s not because of her fiery red dress.
From afar, it’s easy to dismiss her VMAs makeup as another smokey eye-meets-clean-skin look that we’ve seen countless of times. However, a closer look reveals her unexpected eye makeup: red-hot liner! Over on Instagram, makeup artist Allan Avendaño revealed that he luxuriously lined her eyes with Christian Louboutin’s Oeil Vinyle Luminous Ink Liner in Vibrant Red. As if it wasn’t striking enough, this was followed by a sparkling finish of actual red Swarovski crystals. Clearly, Vanessa didn’t take the backseat on her beauty game.
Hours before the red carpet, the actress took to Instagram to reveal its alluring close up look. Coupled with slicked back, fresh-out-of-the-shower hair, we can’t deny that it’s a fool-proof combo for a killer beauty.
