    Who would’ve thought that a comic book convention for a group of comics, movie, and science fiction fans would also end up being the hub for the best beauty looks we’ve seen on a red carpet in a long time.

    Whether it was the powerful red lip, sleek high ponytail, or textured braid that piqued your interest, these beauty looks had us wanting more red carpet Comic Con moments.

    At the other end of the spectrum was Bella Heathcote, who channeled her soft side with textured hair and flawless skin, and Victoria Justice who’s hair was so shiny, you almost had to wear sunglasses while looking at it.
    Then there was Keke Palmer and Christina Milian who both opted for sleek, high tails, the former being an incredible braid adorning a half shaved head, with the latter being a glossy straight ponytail.
