If there's one thing you can count on at the MTV Video Music Awards, it's plenty of "WTF" moments. From the performances to the red carpet fashion and beauty, you never know what you're going to see.

So last night I was fully prepared and excited for some outrageous beauty sightings—lime green wigs, body know, that sort of thing. Katy Perry posed with grills on and Miley Cyrus had her hair in pigtail buns, but this year, it wasn't these out-there looks that caught my attention.

Instead, I was wowed by Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Jennifer Hudson, who all sported a bold lip and dramatic cat eye. They each made the classic look VMA-appropriate with some glitter and/or bright color choices, and I think they totally nailed it.
