As we wind down our recap of MTV's VMA Vegas bash, it's time to turn our attention to the beauty of the night where shimmering skin, subtle makeup and simple hair ruled the red carpet. From Hayden Pantierre's sultry glow to Nicole Scherzinger's (of the Pussycat Dolls) nude lip to Rosario Dawson's effortless blow-out, we were definitely impressed – and inspired. And even though summer's quickly coming to an end (sigh), don't hesitate to incorporate these looks into your everyday for an extra-fresh fall face.
To achieve your own VMA beauty style, here are a few essentials to always have on-hand:
Sephora Luminous Trio Bronze Trio: Get glowing with this terrific little trio compact. It comes complete with three different shades so you can moderate just how much you want to shine.
NARS Nude Lipstick: Sure any brand will do, but we like Nars because it comes in several barely-there colors to complement every skin tone. Plus, it's enriched with vitamins so your colors stays put and your pout perfectly soft.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum: A tried and true favorite, you really can't go wrong with this one when it comes to keeping flyways and frizz under control. There are formulas for every hair type now, so take your pick.
