It's not easy to name the absolute best look on any red carpet, and this year's BET Awards were no exception. Rather than name one lady the loveliest of them all, I've rounded up 14 and picked a standout beauty choice for each one. Just think of it as our own little awards ceremony, so get started to see who's placed in each category.

False eyelashes are a lot of fun, especially when you have the opportunity to play around with unusual and wild styles. Sometimes, wacky lashes are bold and brash, but other times, they're artistic and fantastic. Shu Uemura's Fleur-Ever lashes fit firmly into the latter category. Designed by Gina Brooke, Madonna's personal makeup artist, the $79 lashes provide beautiful plumage for a dramatic look. Then again, not everyone has an extra $79 to spend on something so fanciful. But if you want to try the look for less than $10, check out what I found
Her eponymous group enjoyed immense popularity throughout the '80s and early '90s, enjoying hits like "Smooth Operator" and "No Ordinary Love." Her sensual beauty stood out in a sea of highly stylized singers, providing a different version of beauty from the neon-and-teased-bangs trends of the day. Although she's been out of the spotlight for a few years, she's working on a new album, giving Frank (among others) a chance to be inspired by her silken voice and stunning looks once more.
If you've never seen a Sade video, you can change that. Just sashay, Sade, this way.

For most of her years in the spotlight, Britney Spears has been a blonde. But this weekend, she showed off a new brown hue while strolling around in Los Angeles. It isn't the first time that Brit's been a brunette, but it's been at least a year since we've seen this rich chocolate color on her. Some might prefer her with flaxen hair, but I say, never underestimate the power of the dark side. Which hair color do you think flatters her more?
This lipstick is the best I've had in years! Although it does not advertise to be long-lasting, it actually lasts a surprisingly long time. It is a beautiful color on any skin tone. It is absolutely wonderful.

Makeup isn't just for the face anymore — or at least that's what a few companies would like you to think. Last week we took a look at concealer for your feet, and this time around, it's the My Beautiful Breasts kit ($69) from It Cosmetics. Intended to create the appearance of larger ta-tas, the kit includes waterproof/sweatproof "bust shadows," an awesomely titled Library of Secrets manual, booby primer, setting spray, and brushes for application. It also comes with bust stain, a semi-permanent tint that promises, "No matter how wet or sweaty you get, your breasts aren’t going anywhere!" (Oof, I should hope not.)
Makeup artists use shading and contouring tricks to create the illusion of larger breasts, and It Cosmetics CEO Jamie Kern Lima's background in TV means that she's picked up a few tips and tricks along the way. Still, I can't imagine an occasion when I'd think, "You know what this event calls for? Bust stain." Would you consider getting this kit, or will you stick with a push-up bra?
Is this a hair gadget? No. A magnifying mirror? Guess again. A pubic-grooming mirror? Ding ding ding, we have a winner.
Peeka Bu ($35) is a new flexible-necked tool designed to give you a better view for the tidying of your nether regions. Designed by former art director Sarah Nehamen, the mirror attaches to a solid surface via suction cup, then can be angled as necessary. It's biodegradable and made in the States, if that's important to you. The marketing materials promote it as a smart addition to your grooming arsenal, but it would be just as useful for getting to know parts of your anatomy. No doubt Betty Dodson would approve of that, but would you shell out $35 for this mirror?
