I'm not going to lie: I'm starting to think the MTV Movie and TV Awards just might be the dark horse of awards shows. I don't give it as much thought as the Met Gala, but when it does roll around, I always find myself pleasantly surprised by all the epic beauty looks stars turn out for the occasion. From Vanessa Hudgens' icy blue lids to Kornbread Jeté's sky-high braids, every look on the carpet at this year's show has given me much to contemplate.
Am I now considering trying out some more adventurous looks for summer? It's looking like a solid yes. Prepare to be floored (and have your Pinterest board ready), the best hair and makeup looks from the 2022 MTV Movie and TV Awards carpet are ahead. Keep scrolling—popcorn is optional.
TBH, I've never had any desire to try a hot pink eye until now. Symone is serving up a full-on Barbie revival and I can confidently say it's a look that will live rent-free in my mind for the coming summer months.
