From Alicia Keys no-makeup to Cyndi’s colourful unicorn hair and RiRi’s bold makeup at the after-party – there’s a look and statement for all at The Grammy’s 2018.

There were so many gorgeous looks at The Grammy’s this year.  I’ve gone through them and picked out some of my faves (there were too many though). What I love is that the GLOW was everywhere. Beautiful skin, the best features enhanced and bold bold statements.

Hello glittery cat eyes! Love the sexy smokey Marc Jacobs eyes on Lady Gaga – Makeup Artist Sarah Tanno used Marc Jacobs makeup to create this look inspired by “a dark starry night”.  Did you all see her Armani Prive Gown though? OMG! Talk about in true Gaga style!



Ri Ri will ALWAYS turn up the heat for us in her stunning purple smokey eye when she switched up her makeup at the after-party!  Love this NEON shade!

Alicia Keys: The no-makeup for self-empowerment (Getty Images from Allure.com)

From one extreme of Lady Gaga and Ri Ri to another – Alicia Keys looked just gorgeous in her literally no makeup look.  I think the message is really powerful.  We should love ourselves for who we are….. Thanks Alicia! I think more celebrities should follow in your footsteps.  It’s been 2 years since Alicia went on her personal journey toward self-empowerment. Her Glow is incred and I found out through Allure.com that her makeup artist Dotti (well her no-makeup artist if you follow) said “Alicia gets regular facials, does acupuncture, and she eats healthy and exercises,”  Well obv this is her secret – we all know that you are what you eat!

As found on Allure.com she wrote about why she didn’t want to wear makeup anymore: “Cause I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”  Makeup artist Dotti said she often “preps Keys’s beautiful skin with a combination of an ice-cold jade roller, cucumber pulp, natural oils, and the occasional mask.”. Dotti said she “sometimes enhances Keys’s eyebrows with individual lashes, plays up her freckles with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, brightens her cheeks with Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum, and cuts shine with Mally Ever Colour Poreless Face Definer Mattifier — but other than that, it’s all Alicia.” (Source from Allure.com)

Alessia Cara

Well done to Alessia for her Grammy on Best New Artist! She looked so cute in her trouser and blazer combo and Converse. Her makeup was flawless – natural, glowing and smokey! But what about those Gold hoops earrings – I am wondering whether I can pull this off?

Hailee Steinfeld:

There’s been quite a bit of colour seen at The Grammy’s this year.  Love the emerald green used on Hailee – reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury palette in Rebel.  I am totally obsessed with her skin though – so dreamy!!
