Another year, another “anything goes” MTV Video Music Awards. Or so I'm told.

Despite my best efforts otherwise, my connection to the MTV audience is waning (except for the Jersey Shore crew. I will never lose touch with them).

Don't get me wrong, I'm not above critiquing the fashion or rocking out to pop music while exercising. I just can't concentrate on a 3-hour awards show, especially when E! is simultaneously broadcasting Kris Humphries' realization that KK was once married. Just wait until he finds out about Ray J!

Anyway, the VMAs is one of the most exciting awards shows for fashion and beauty inspiration. It's a rock starlet's no holds barred opportunity to dazzle us. Or not. Either way, the looks always make you feel something.

Imagine sky was the limit and you had access to the best wardrobe, make-up, and hair stylists on the planet? Well, the generous folks at Mary Kay and Palmers are sharing some of the night's stand out beauty trends and the products that can make you look like a VMA maven.

For the nude lip trend as seen on Demi Lovato and Katie Holmes (and pretty much everyone) try Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Sheer Blush:
