The Grammys never fail to deliver unforgettable hair, makeup and red carpet moments and Sunday evening’s awards show was no exception. At the 2018 Grammys, stars made many an unexpected choice on the hair and makeup front (sunglasses! corset braids! cheetah-print hair!). Sadly, the powers that be made rather predictable choices when it came to voting — that Kendrick Lamar snub and total Jay Z, SZA and Despacito shut-out was hard to watch. But we digress.
Alongside the innovative and wacky looks, several mainstream beauty trends made multiple appearances. Beyoncé sported Pantone-approved lips and declared skin (and Glossier) firmly in; Alicia Keys and Janelle Monáe co-signed the Queen’s glowy-faced statement. Monáe, Rita Ora and Rapsody did the grown-out-roots thing (Monáe with more success than the other two); Keys and Lana Del Rey showed off hair accessories with serious personality. Meanwhile, Hailee Steinfeld and Bebe Rexha captivated us with their beyond bright-eyed makeup.
