Britney Spears MTV VMA 2008

Aside from it being all-too-obvious and predictable at the VMAs (and let’s face it, maybe a ploy by MTV for Project: Save Britney), Britney did look much more like her old self.  Glowy, healthy, and maybe even happy–a little bit? I admit, MTV got me, I tuned in just to see what Britney was going to do for the opening act.  I’m not much for sketch comedy, and I’d have rather seen a performance, but hey, at least she didn’t fall flat on her face like last year.

Anyway, the real point of this post is to show you three ladies who rocked some fierce beauty at this year’s VMAs. Britney (above, duh), Taylor Swift (love her!), and Christina Aguilera (stunning look!).  Britney had a metallic silvery smoky eye going on with some ultra black, ultra dramatic lashes (false lashes or super duper mascara… or both?). Taylor seemed like she did a mostly black smoky eye, but she kept the rest of her face neutral and peachy–and why is she blessed with such phenomenal skin?  So not fair.  Christina always gets me with her choices in makeup.  You see her with a classic red lip all the time, but tonight she rocks an intense black cat eye, with some creative lining underneath the eye–love when I see something different on celebs.

Who did you think looked their very best at the VMAs? So many celebs and artists to choose from, but these three that I thought I’d highlight. Rihanna had some cute navy liner for her entrance, and Jordin Sparks looked sultry with her smoky eye, too!
