It’s the most glamorous times of the year- Award season! From lavish diamond, emblazed dresses to sleek silk gowns, the fashion is always a hot point of our attention as we sit in bed repeatedly refreshing our social media feeds to get the next peek into the alluring world of celebrity life. But as amazing as the fashion may be, the perfectly pined hair-do’s and glowing makeup are equally elaborate and always inspire me to try new trends or improve my makeup skills. The Grammys always provide much inspiration as music icons brush shoulders with the up and coming stars at the most anticipated and highly regarded award show for music performers. This year was no different. The golden glow continued to prove a hit with stars such as Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez who both supported the bronzed goddess styling, and looked amazing whilst doing so. However, it wasn’t all about the natural look, many stars supported bold statement looks using glitter lipstick, diamond jewels and vibrant bleach blond hair. Here’s a the my top picks of the mix
Despite a few technical blunders, The Grammys were British Singer Adele’s night. From the 5 awards, she took home to her now infamous mean girls style speech in which she snapped an award in half to share with Beyoncé (total friendship goals). But what grabbed my envy the most was her incredible hair and makeup that radiated sheer sophisticated glamour. Where better place to start than Adele’s signature beauty style; matte black winged eyeliner. Wow. The intensity made her eyes pop whilst adding a youthful element to her style, makeup tutorial as soon as possible please, Adele. Her hair was pinned up with an elegant drop that showed volume and length and a perfect front flick framed her face without being too much. We’re used to her stunning looks by now, but her makeup and hair artists took her game to a whole new level that even levelled the likes of Beyoncé.
The actress/singer who plays Bonnie in The Vampire Diaries is an unlikely pick for my top three at the Grammys however her bold look stood out from the crowd of top selling stars. She proved that the trend of glitter lipstick is far from over and inspired many to even give the overlooked style a try. She opted for a bold red lip topped with glitter, and on a carpet, full of nude lips she brought a fresh pop of colour. Her statement lips were matched with a radiant foundation, chizzled contour and my new must have makeup piece white waterline eyeliner. Her hair was styled perfectly to match in a sleek, slicked back style that ensured that her makeup was the focus of the camera attention. Her parting was placed slightly to the side to create a fuller look that placed hair evenly on her back. I loved it.
Metallic makeup is in this season and was a very popular trend at the awards ceremony but Demi proved once again that she is the Queen of bronzed shimmer and stole the show with her mermaid inspired style. Her metallic bronzed eyeshadow added depth to her eyes whilst the addition of glitter added sheer glamour. Also, can we talk for a second about her whispy eyelashes… I am desperate to know which brand she used to recreate this myself! She paired the dramatic eye look with a glossy neutral lip and intense bronzed cheekbones with a slick of shimmery golden highlighter. Her famous thick brown hair was lengthened to her waist and styled with timeless long waves that still allowed her to show of her amazing makeup and stunning dress. She took a popular style and totally dominated and that is why I loved this look.
