In Which We Award Arbitrary Prizes for The Best Beauty Looks from the 2016 MTV Movie Awards

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

While the 2016 MTV Movie Awards won't air until tonight, the show was taped last night and photos are now widely available, meaning every single look is ready for analysis before we even know who won "Best Kiss." Instead of normal Sunday activities like sleeping in or heading out to brunch this morning, we instead decided to — in the spirit of the MTV Movie Awards themselves — hand out various arbitrary awards for the best beauty looks, ranging from "Best Use of a Curling Iron" to "Best 90-Degree Angle Braid."

Check them out in the slideshow above, and we'll update artist and pertinent product information as that becomes available once everybody gets back from brunch and their workouts.
