Music’s top stars are reveling in music’s biggest night. Here’s a list of the 10 artists we think delivered the best beauty looks at the 2024 Grammy Awards
Every Grammy Awards night is a night to remember when some of Hollywood’s biggest stars take it as the moment to deliver their best belts, create iconic interactions, and go big in beauty and fashion. This year’s red carpet event is no different with everyone’s beauty looks reflecting their larger-than-life personalities. In case you missed it, here are the 10 artists who delivered the best beauty looks at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.
Olivia Rodrigo looked gorgeous on the red carpet, dressed in a 1995 Versace gown and dolled up in the style of her song, “Vampire,” which she performed onstage that same night. Hairstylist Clayton Hawkins used a Dyson to give Olivia’s tresses the classic Hollywood blowout treatment. Meanwhile, makeup artist Melissa Hernandez gave the star beauty marks, vampy lips, a cutting cat eye, and lightly feathered brows. Contrasting her ruby red lipstick are her chic nude nails, which are courtesy of Yoko Sakakura.
Also rocking the ever-classic cat eye and red lipstick combo is Taylor Swift. The songstress also donned dramatic side-swept bangs to go with her tousled hair with a single braid. This beauty look is going down in history as the artist uses this night to announce her newest album, “The Tortured Poets Department.”
Lana Del Ray
According to Lana Del Ray’s hairstylist Anna Cofone, the mood tonight is “full vintage goth coquette” and the artist definitely delivers. Courtesy of Cofone, Lana has on a black silk bow and the iconic Bardot Bangs framing her face. She uses Authentic Beauty Concept hair care products to style her tresses into loose waves, while makeup artist Etienne Ortega uses Charlotte Tilbury products for skin prep, body care, and makeup. Etienne lined the singer’s lips with Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude and dabbed on pink hues in the center using Hollywood Beauty Icon Lipstick in Icon Baby.
Perhaps taking a leaf out of her godmother’s book, Miley Cyrus stunned with her Amazonian look at the Grammys, and we have hairstylist Bob Recine to thank for her big hair. To achieve this look, he used products from Nexxus Haircare, namely the XXL Volume Hairspray, Prep & Protect Spray, and Repair & Nourish Hair Oil. Meanwhile, makeup artist James Kaliardos used Cetaphil to prep the musician’s skin, before applying Pat McGrath Labs products to craft a sculpted yet fresh-faced makeup look. Notably, on Miley’s eyelids are shimmers from the Mothership X: Moonlit Seduction eyeshadow palette, and on her lips the MatteTrance™ Lipstick in Honey Haze.
For Janelle Monáe‘s hairdo, hairstylist Nikki Nelms goes the tamed and polished route, creating Betty Boop-esque edges to frame her face. Likewise, for a polished and flawless look, makeup artist Keita Moore relied on Danucera products for skin prep and L’Oréal Paris for the monochromatic beauty beat. Lastly, manicurist Angie Aguirre gave the singer-songwriter a playful set, black and white and embellished all over to complement her custom Giorgio Armani gown.
For her first-ever Grammys appearance, Dawn Richard leaves a mark with her scarlet Khosrov gown. Her beauty details complement the Botticelli-inspired dress too, from her red-stained eyelids courtesy of makeup artist Nimai to her red fingertips done by Modern Pamper Salon. On the other hand, hairstylist Larry Sims leaves Dawn’s hair mostly gelled back and lightly tousled.
Singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams gives us another shining example of a chic short-hair moment, with her bob classically styled by hairstylist Bobby Eliot. Gracie comes to the red carpet event in full Chanel Beauty, with her nails painted in Le Vernis Oiseau de Nuit by nail artist Betina R. Goldstein and her face radiant and flushed, courtesy of makeup artist Tyron Machhausen. To achieve the exact coloring of her lips, line your pout with the Le Crayon Lèvres in Rose Naturel then use the 31 Le Rouge in Rouge Croisière all over.
Nigerian singer Ayra Starr was also a sight to behold at the 2024 Grammys. Makeup artist Patrick Ta, with assistance from Taylor Healey, gave the songstress the full glam treatment, with flushed cheeks, glossy lips, and a perfectly executed cut crease. Finally, credit for the star’s glossy and sleek tresses goes to hairstylist Sean Fears.
Likewise, Fantasia Taylor did not come to play at the 2024 Grammy Awards. Hairstylist Derickus Crawford styled her locks close to the scalp and artistically displayed her edges into tight swoops. We also have makeup artist Timothy Clark to thank for Fantasia’s beauty beat, but the star of the look is ultimately her Messika jewelry atop her bottom lip.
Our last addition to this list is Charlotte Lawrence, who came onto the red carpet with the perfectly imperfect spikey bun and smokey eye. Hairstylist Ryan Richman and makeup artist Alexandra French worked together to make the singer-songwriter’s dark beauty look complement her sheer, romantic goth gown.
