The 2012 MTV VMAs  brought out so many of our beautiful entertainers that rocked some of the hottest makeup trends this season.  The new trends are all about the lips.  If it’s not a smokey eye, most makeup artists are leaving a really clean look, and accentuating eyelashes, brows, and lips.

The top lip trends that we saw on the red carpet were the ever so sexy red lip, which was seen on Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Rita Ora; the nude lip, rocked by ink, Alicia Keys, and almost every other celebrity onthe red carpet, and the vamp look.

Kat Graham pulled the dark lipstick/vamp look off very well.  Be on the lookout for this trend to become really popular as we travel through fall and head into the colder months.  Azaelia Banks and Teyana Taylor have also been spotted in the vamp makeup trend.

Take a look at some of our favorite ladies om the red carpet in our gallery.
