    The Weeknd's Bandaged Face at the American Music Awards Has a Powerful Message

    5 days ago - By Pop Sugar

    If you watched the 2020 American Music Awards, you probably saw The Weeknd take to the stage to accept the award for favorite album soul/R&B with a face covered in bandages and bruises. We saw a similar makeup look from him back in August for the 2020 MTV VMAs , and before that, in his music video for "Blinding Lights."
    With his head, jaw, and nose completely bandaged, he looked as if he'd been in a terrible accident - and that was the point. The Weeknd wasn't injured, nor did he get some sort of plastic surgery. Instead, the bloody makeup is to raise awareness about drunk driving. He's...

    Both exuded a fun energy as they harmonized to the track, which has spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart so far: “We play games of love to avoid the depression/ We been here before and I won't be your victim.”

    Before Jennifer Lopez even hit the stage at the 2020 American Music Awards, she stole the show with her floating eyeliner look. Honestly, though, we'd expect nothing less from the queen herself.
    J Lo's out-of-the-box makeup was by celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips , who used all Pat McGrath Labs products. If you thought the graphic liner was reminiscent of Twiggy's iconic makeup look, you hit the nail on the head. According to Phillips's Instagram caption , she wanted to go for a '60s-inspired "sultry graphic liner" with a modern twist.
