Unlike the Oscars, or even the more laid-back Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, Grammys beauty always stands out. We can expect bold hair and makeup from all the stars across all the categories: country, pop, hip-hop — everything. Tonight’s show proves the 2023 Grammy Awards are no different. here’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 Taylor Swift‘s classic red lip, Doja Cat‘s pixie cut and all the TikTokers slaying the red carpet. Below, some of our faves and how to get their look.

Lizzo’s peach-pink makeup perfectly matches her bold gown. But we’re especially loving her curls, created by stylist Shelby Swain using Harry Josh Pro Tools and Sebastian Professional products. “Creating this look for Lizzo’s red carpet look was a love affair!” Swain said in a statement. “Lizzo’s look was inspired by the intricate beauty and detail of the flowers that illuminated her face and the vibrant color of her beautiful gown. I wanted to create a romantic elegant hairstyle that complimented her bold beauty.”
