1. I was into
Beyonce’s soaked hair, mostly because you all hated it (and partly because it was very
Spring/Summer 2014). It’s not like she was posing for Jostens school photos, she was performing for five minutes, reminding of us how her slithering, sloppy Drunk in Love video, that was filmed on a beach. So there! Pantene Celebrity Stylist Kim Kimble achieved the look by using Pantene Pro-V Curly No Crunch Curls Whip, Pantene Advanced + Keratin Repair KERAGLOSS and Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray.
2. Katy Perry‘s donut crueller inspired ‘do. Because I love donuts, and it’s Katy Perry. I mean, you’ve got to leave a little room for her experimental flair. This is considered pared-down for her, all things considered.
Lorde’s lip. It’s a wicked, blackened berry. One of our
favourite blogs, BeautyGeeks, has the scoop on the exact shade of lipstick used. According to Janine Falcon (who runs the blog), Lorde wore M.A.C lip pencil in "Vino" plus M.A.C lipstick in "Cyber" and the recently resurrected M.A.C lipstick in "Heroine".
4. Taylor Swift’s eyeshadow. I’m not normally orbitally-inclined (I’m into lips, thanks), but the one thing I did notice during TSwift’s performance was her shimmery lids.I mean, that was after she distracted me with all the whiplash–but still, great makeup.
5. Ciara’s crazy sculpting. How much of that is just sheer genetic perfection though? Don’t answer that.
