From Alicia Keys’ heartwarming tribute for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna after their tragic deaths to Billie Eilish’s 5 spectacular wins, the 62nd Grammy Awards was surely an iconic night to remember.
The A-listers showed up on the red carpet with dazzling gowns and lots of makeup looks that we’ll be taking down for inspiration in our beauty books. Here, we round up the our favourite stunning makeup looks that stood out all night.
We’re starting this list with the girl that stole the show last night. With 5 prolific Grammy wins including the Best Album of the Year and Best Song of the Year, all eyes were on the 18-year-old.
Usually at such prestigious award shows like this, all the glam comes out: we’re talking eyeliner with a super long wing, or a glossy red lip that’ll get heads turning. But for Billie Eilish, she went for the ultimate no-makeup makeup look, and we’re here for it. All you need is an eyebrow pencil to achieve that perfect arch and a pink lip gloss so you look put together without really having to try at all.
You may know her as Tahani Al-Jamil from the Netflix comedy The Good Place. On the show, she’s someone that’s always glammed up and party-ready with the best maxi dresses and stunning makeup looks. Well, with her bright blue dress and blue eyeliner to match at the Grammys, she’s no different from the character she plays.
To recreate her look, go for an eyeliner colour that matches your dress so you look extra captivating. If you’re going for a more subtle look, pick out an eyeliner (here are some of our favourite affordable eyeliners) that’s 2 shades darker than your dress and let the pop of colour be on your lips. In Jameela’s case, she went for a glossy mauve pink pout to tie everything together.
The fan-favourite singer was one of the last to walk on the red carpet and boy did she save best for last. She went for simple glam with a silk two-piece but spiced up her entire ensemble with some baby blue eyeshadow.
The 2-time Grammy winner also showed off her fluffy brows and had a nude lip (here’s how to pick the right pink lipstick for your skintone) to match her outfit. If you’re looking to recreate her dramatic eye look, remember to keep the rest of your makeup simple so all the attention stays on your baby blues.
After her noticeable absence in last year’s Grammy’s Award Show, Ariana Grande finally made an appearance this year. She had 5 nominations under her belt and even though she didn’t take home the coveted awards, she still looked stunning in her grey princess dress and iconic high pony.
Her makeup artist clearly hit the jackpot with this classic glam look – we’re in awe of her super long lashes, her brick orange eyeshadow shade and of course, her liner that pulled the whole look together.
As the winner for the Best Pop Solo Performance was being announced, Lizzo had her fingers crossed and was mouthing “Beyoncé”, in hopes that her idol would take home the golden gramophone. Instead, her name was announced, and she emotionally took home the Grammy in this coveted category.
Her outfit and makeup look couldn’t be more fitting for a 3-time Grammy winner – she wore a classic white gown and rocked a violet smoky eye. Achieve a similar makeup look by blending a dark purple eyeshadow shade into your crease. Follow up with a lighter shade of plum by patting it gently on the middle of your lids. Finish off by highlighting your inner corners with a shimmery silver shade so you look more awake.
From her silver jewelry to the details on her dress, the “Havana” singer was all bling for the Grammy’s this year. With super luscious lashes and a thick eyeliner wing, we love how her makeup look perfectly complemented her outfit.
Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album at this year’s Grammy’s and ended up taking home the golden gramophone for the latter. She posed for pictures after the show with her first ever Grammy win and we love how stunning she looked.
She kept her eye makeup simple and focused more about making her cheekbones the star of the show. If you’re looking to achieve the same look, grab a bright pink blush and blend it outwards towards your temples. Add a touch of shimmery highlighter to tie it all together.
