Vanessa Hudgens

As this year’s host, we expected Hudgens to show up to the awards with a show-stopping beauty look, and the actress definitely didn’t disappoint. Hudgens’ hairstylist Chad Wood styled her sleek shoulder-length bob using the Hot Tools White Gold Detachable One Step Volumizer ($100). Her glowy glam was painted on by Allan Avendaño, who used all YSL Beauty products to complete the look.

Lily Collins always looks chic when she graces a red carpet. For last night’s awards ceremony, the actress’ makeup artist Fiona Stiles was inspired by taupe tones and used all Lancôme products (Collins is a longtime ambassador!) to create the neutral look. Collins’ pulled-back ponytail was perfectly styled by Diego Da silva.

Sofia Carson

If we had to choose one word to describe Sofia Carson’s glam, it would be electrifying. With her hair pulled back into a slick bun, the actress’s red lip instantly became the star of this look. To achieve her bold pout, Carson’s MUA Karan Mitchell used the Revlon x Sofia Carson Super Lustrous™ The Luscious Matte Lipstick ($9) in On Fire and Revlon x Sofia Carson Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor ($10) in The Sofia Red.
