We have a confession to make, and it might be a bit of a hot take. Our favourite part of award season is definitely the Grammy Awards. While shows like the Golden Globes and Academy Awards deliver in the fashion department, we find the actual show at each of these events to be a little too slow-paced for our taste. (Sorry.) The Grammy Awards, however, offer powerhouse performances and next-level beauty looks to boot. Much more our speed!
This year, the Grammys are taking place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles with performances from all our favourites, including Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish. While we’re positively itching to see what everyone will wear, we’re poised at the ready to swoon over all the out-of-this-world beauty looks. We’re looking at you, Taylor Swift. What will she wear this time? Will she win Album of the Year and set a record for most wins in the category? We’ll find out! In the meantime, scroll through all the most “ooh”- and “aah”-worthy looks we’ve clocked so far on the carpet.
Richie’s slick-back hair coupled with her flushed complexion make for a radiant, effortless finish.
Janelle Monáe’s sleek cat eye looks effortless and chic.
The real showstopper here is Miley’s feathered locks, but the natural pink lip and eye are also a vibe.
Miss Swift arrived with a black and white fit that’s most likely filled with Easter eggs (Reputation era, anyone?), but her signature red lip pairs perfectly with the look.
Dua Lipa is sporting a bronze-gold eye with a metallic gown. The burgundy hair gives the whole look a fiery finish.
In case you didn’t notice, Laverne Cox is a serious blush girlie. We love the rouge-stained cheeks paired with an equally luscious red lip here.
While the rest of her makeup might be simple, Olivia Rodrigo went full speed ahead with a vampy red lip.
A subtle ice blue eye paired with a glossy lip for Paris Hilton.
Doll makeup was made for Lana Del Rey. Her features look positively porcelain, but the lip combo is what really stands out.
Bebe Rexha’s glow is unreal thanks to skin prep done by her legendary facialist Joanna Vargas.
Wow. Madison Beer always looks stunning, but this might be one of our favorite looks of hers yet.
Charlotte Lawrence is sporting a smoky fox-eye look. A heavier liner feels perfect for the occasion.
A juicy, glossy lip and neutral eye for Alix Earle on the carpet. We’re biased because we love a glossy lip, but this look gets an A+ in our book.
We might be just a tad obsessed with Kat Graham’s rose gold shimmer eye shadow here.
This lip-liner-and-lipstick combo is unreal on Emma Brooks.
Is lip jewelry a thing now? If it’s not, it should be and Fantasia Barrino proves it.
Paris Jackson opted for a more neutral look, but it’s anything but boring. The subtle rosy shade on the lids and beige-pink lip go so well with black.
No one does “boy brows” better than Best New Artist nominee Gracie Abrams.
