The CFDA Awards might be all about fashion, but this year's event was a big night for beauty. For one thing, the legendary Pat McGrath was the first makeup artist to ever receive the Founders Awards, an honor reserved for the most respected names in the industry. For another, the red carpet beauty was some of the best we've seen this year.
One of our favorite looks of the evening came courtesy of Bella Hadid, who stepped out in a striking blunt bob with bangs-we've since confirmed that it was a clip-in fringe, but if you're taking suggestions, Bella, maybe make it permanent? But the model was hardly the only one to opt for something so striking. Sultry eye makeup, strategically placed glitter, and vampy lips all populated the red carpet, providing plenty of inspiration for your next big night out.

In case you were wondering, this is what sophisticated shimmer looks like. (And we especially love the shock of gold on Chopra's lower lash line.)

Inspired by the '70s feel of Bosworth's dress, makeup artist Hung Vanngo opted for a brown and rust makeup palette.
