Even during this uncertain time, there’s one thing we can expect from the Grammy Awards: killer hair and makeup. This isn’t the Oscars. It’s not even the more laid-back Golden Globes. This is when musicians and celebs go all out and experiment with new looks they haven’t tried before. Even during a mostly remote show, the Grammys beauty for 2021 is no different. There’s no subtle no-makeup makeup here—just bold, look-at-me beauty. And we live for it.
Grammys beauty is always pretty iconic. One just has to think back to Adele’s flipped-out blonde lob and major cat eyes back in 2012 or Beyoncé’s crimped caramel-colored hair and bronze eyeshadow in 2017. Or, we can go even further back to before most of us remember. There was Selena Quintanilla’s iconic red lip in 1994 and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bleached buzzcut in 1998. And who can forget Jennifer Lopez in 2000 with green eyeshadow matching her plunging green dress?
This year, we’re drooling over Lizzo’s ultra-long strands, Maren Morris’s golden blonde lob and Doja Cat’s baby bangs. And that’s just the beginning.
The styled baby hairs with the braids and those lashes? This might be the best she’s ever looked.
Her sparkly purples eyes perfectly match her gown.
The braids! The glossy lip! The singer-songwriter is on fire.
The only thing better than H.E.R.’s purple-and-gold eyeshadow is her throwback sunnies.
As is Noah’s! The two front pieces are back, everyone.
Serving some major halloween vibes.
