Best in beauty: Grammy Awards 2018
From electric eyeshadow to lust-worthy braids, nobody played it safe on the red carpet
Beauty Crew Contributing Beauty Writer / January 29 2018
Music’s biggest night of the year has just wrapped up and the celebrity looks did not disappoint. While Rihanna and Beyoncé may have been M.I.A on the red carpet, these celebs definitely brought their beauty A-games.
From Hailee Steinfeld’s electric eyeshadow to Lady Gaga rocking the braid of our dreams, it was all about taking risks. These A-listers commanded the spotlight well before the show began with bold, bright and eye-catching hair and makeup.
Check out our gallery for some of the most noteworthy beauty looks from the 2018 Grammy Awards.
We are SO into the actress and singer’s bold, eye-popping makeup look. The smoky teal eyeshadow was haloed around her eyes for an ultra-modernised, head-turning look. A definite win that we can’t wait to try for ourselves!
An unexpected favourite, this year Lady Gaga went with a midnight black graphic wing with liner tracing her lower lash line and glittery eyeshadow blended up to her brow bone. However, the real show-stopper was her EPIC braid laced with black string from top to bottom. So. Fierce.
Oh Rita, you can do no wrong. The singer oozed old Hollywood elegance with a stunningly classic look. She opted for voluminous brushed-back waves, a flawless cat eye and a deep red lipstick.

The singer brought her love for eyeliner to a *whole* new level, with wondrously long cat eyes that stretched out to her temples. Her mauve coloured lip, beautifully dewy skin and shiny lob gave her look a splash of vintage glam.
Swapping out her usual natural makeup look, Katie rocked a shimmery green eyeshadow on the inner eyes, with a mauve eyeshadow and underliner to highlight her eyes. She teamed this look with Great Gatsby-inspired waves – a red carpet ‘do we’ve been seeing a lot of lately.
We’re not sure if it’s the bold emerald under-eye liner, the dramatic eyelashes or the super fierce platinum pixie cut, but we are in LOVE with Janelle’s daring look. Attention grabbing and ultra refreshing, we can’t stop staring at this statement beauty look.
The Bodak Yellow rapper wowed on the red carpet, showcasing a messy chignon with loose strands left out to frame her face. Her yellow and orange shadow teamed with her next-level lashes amped up the drama for a lust-worthy look.
The In the Name of Love singer added a bit of fun to her look with blended red and pink eye makeup and lush lashes that enhanced her eyes. With her blonde tresses in a side-swept bob, this made for one of the night’s most stunning looks.
