For red carpet appearances, celebs wear top-of-the-line custom couture, so understandably, you'd think that the hair and makeup would follow suit — all Givenchy, Dior, Tom Ford, etc. But, red carpet beauty often comes with a mix of highs and lows, as was the case at this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Yara Shahidi wore an elegant Tory Burch pantsuit, with a $4 nail polish. Zendaya looked every bit a supermodel in a dark brown August Getty Atelier gown, while her slicked back hairstyle cost less than $20 in total products. There were drugstore finds all over the carpet, you just have to know where to look.
