The Teen Choice Awards are one of the most fun awards shows to watch. Where else will you see such a random mix of celebs like Mark Wahlberg, Rebecca Black and Cameron Diaz all together?

It’s also one of the only awards shows where stars tend to let loose with their hair and makeup, letting you see their funkier side. We’re not sure if they’re trying to look hip for their young fans, or if they just feel like they’ve got the freedom to try new things, but we love seeing our fave starlets sporting cool new makeup looks.

Case in point: Taylor Swift. The usually demure star loves a red lip, but tends to keep it pretty neutral with her eye makeup. She kicked things up a notch with a bright green eyeshadow and coral lips, a huge departure from her usual classically glam look.

Bright makeup was definitely the trend of the evening, with host Kaley Cuoco opting for a bright pink lip and Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham showing off an electric purple smoky eye.

Each girl wisely paired her Day-Glo makeup with a crisp white dress (another big trend of the night) and kept the accessories to a minimum (although in Kat Graham’s case, she went a little overboard with the fringe. Eek!).

We’re loving all the colorful lip and eye looks–it’s nice to see celebs mixing it up with fun, summery makeup. What do you think of the bright trend?
