From award shows to Fashion Month, there’s one beauty trend that’s shining brighter than all others—face bedazzling. Between rhinestones, pearls, and stars, we’ve been seeing face embellishments all over the red carpet and runway and it’s a fashion-forward ’90s look celebrities can’t seem to get enough of. Here are some of the stars who have been rocking face bedazzling.

Machine Gun Kelly is always one to experiment with beauty looks whether it’s long nails or tongue art, but at the MTV VMAs he toned things down with pearl face jewels down his jawline, nose, and sideburn area.
