Perfect skin, envy-worthy brows, and perfect lashes: what every woman wants and exactly what we saw all over last night’s MMVA red carpet. Each red carpet makeup look started with a perfect canvas: flawless complexion and defined features (a.k.a serious contouring). If you’re not a makeup guru or tutorial enthusiast, contouring is about using makeup to enhance, or defined features in order to achieve overall skin perfection.

With perfected skin MMVA 2014 attendees played up a different version of the typical smoky eye/ pale lip combo. Unlike the traditional application, this lighter version places emphasis on larger-than-life lashes (instead of heavy shadow) to achieve sultry eyes. Even more eye-emphasis was achieved with full natural brow shapes, in darkened tones. Red carpet Lips were muted with pales tones varying from concealer-esque to soft corals and light pinks.

Born into a family well versed in the art of contouring Kylie and Kendall Jenner have the technique down. The sisters completed their grade-A cheekbone definition by enhancing their brown eyes with dramatic lashes and nearly skin-camouflaged lips.

With brows that rival Cara Delevingne’s, fourteen-year-old Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka lead the pack in the brow department with an age appropriate version of the lux lashes and low-key lip. Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort and VJ Liz Trinnear (both sporting contoured cheekbones and superior lashes) added an element of glamour to their swept-off-the-face upstyles by way of instant Google inducing blinged out ear cuffs.
