Are you ready to get the how-to for Mim, Liv and Becky G’s CoverGirl Red Carpet looks? Since NERVO was DJing the VMA red carpet, their nails had to make a statement. The Brooklyn location of the VMAs served as the inspiration for their nail looks, which were cool, yet gritty. NERVO’s electric look and sound definitely came through in their nail looks.


For Mim, the base was CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Black Diamond, Snow Storm, Forever Fawn, and Golden Opportunity. To make the look really funky, bold accessories were added including studs, a diamond bow and gold chains. She even donned an MTV flag on one of her nails to pay homage to the VMAs. For Liv, the look was kept simple, starting with a base of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Black Diamond and Snow Storm, with cool designs on each to give the look some edge.

For the NERVO girls’ makeup looks it has to be strong. The girls have such a unique sense of style, so, of course, their beauty looks have to be a part of that. The outfits they chose for the red carpet were insane, so the beauty look had to be complimentary.

For Mim, CoverGirl Clean Whipped Cream Foundation in Natural Beige was applied as a base, followed by blush and two different bronzers for defined cheekbones; the Clean Glow Blush in Roses and Clean Glow Bronzer in Spices, and also TruBlend Minerals Bronzer in Golden Sunrise. The blended colors provided precise definition.

On Mim’s eyes, the look began with CoverGirl Ink It! Liner in Black Ink and a line was drawn from the inner corner of the eye to the outer, defining the eyelid into a full cat eye shape. Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Molten Black was used to fill in the space between the outer line and the lash line. The top water line was filled with liner to enhance the thickness of her lashes. To complete the bold eye, Clump Crusher Extensions in Very Black was used. To finish Mim’s look, a pop of sheer color was applied to her lips using Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Pink Diamond.

Liv’s beauty look was kept really simple with a striking cat eye. Clean Whipped Cream Foundation in Buff Beige was applied all over her face and then set with TruBlend Minerals Loose Powder in Translucent Medium. Clean Glow Bronzer in Spices was used to contour the cheeks and finished with Clean Glow Blush in Peaches.

A dramatic cat eye was created using a nude shadow as the base. Liv started with CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Mink, and then wore LineBlast 24 Hour Liner to create the sexy cat eye. Liv’s look was finished with a beautiful lip created using LipPerfection in Rapture with a touch of Smoochies Lip Balm in Luv Bug for that extra gloss.


Becky G’s Look for Tip to Lip: It was Becky’s first VMAs so she wanted to wear something mega cool. And again, the Brooklyn location of the VMAs was the inspiration. For Becky’s insane nail look, CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Snow Storm was applied as the base, and embellished with the bright Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstini colors including Bahama Mama, Lemon Drop, Sangria, and Blue Hawaiian. She wore a graffiti design, very reminiscent of the tagged Brooklyn buildings, which was achieved by tapping a sponge on the nails while they were still wet to mix the colors.


For her makeup, Becky G went with a clean smokey eye, flawless skin and a juicy berry toned lip. On the eyes, Becky wore a shadow one shade darker than her skin color applied all over her lid, using a fluffy eye shadow brush. On top, she wore CoverGirl Ink It! Liner in Black Ink on her upper and lower lash lines. The liner was worked into her lashes with a small smudge brushed to give her a natural smoked-out look. To finish, her lashes were coated with CoverGirl Flamed Out Mascara to make them really pop.

Becky’s skin was prepped by moisturizing and applying CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation. This was followed by a bit of CoverGirl + Olay Concealer Balm applied under her eyes. CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush in Roses was swept along her cheeks to finish her skin and powder was applied to keep the shine away. To complete the look, Becky’s lips were lined and filled with a soft berry liner and CoverGirl Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm in Be Sweet, finishing with a layer of CoverGirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers Lipgloss in Papaya Splash to give her a super juicy pout.
