Country superstar and now Grammy award winner Kacey Musgraves, whose makeup was done Moani Lee using Pat McGrath Labs, went for pink all over with a champagne rose shimmer on her lids and Barbie-pink lipstick. This look is truly every pink lover's dream! 


Cardi B

You can always count on Cardi B to have fun when it comes to beauty. This time, she complemented her clam shell-like vintage Mugler gown with pearls all over—including wrapped in and around her pompadour updo. Her flawless pink cut crease makeup, done by Erika La Peral using Pat McGrath Labs, also stood out especially with those major lashes. 


Ariana Grande

Ariana may have skipped the Grammy Awards but that didn’t stop her from having one of the best beauty looks. Ariana had her hair in her signature high pony (this time higher), and accessorized with a sparkling necklace, perfect for her princess-like pale blue gown designed by Zac Posen.


Lady Gaga


A post shared by Marc Jacobs (@marcjacobs) on

We just need to say this: We don’t think we’ve ever loved a Lady Gaga look more! For the Grammys, she opted to wear her platinum hair in effortlessly tousled waves and a classic smoky cat eye shape. Meanwhile, her glistening pout is making highlighter on the lips a thing—we're definitely following suit!


Bebe Rexha

Just like her plunging red Monsoori tulle dress, Bebe Rexha’s beauty look for Grammys was equally stunning. This hairstyle reminiscent of the updos of the '90s makes us want to try to tease our hair once again! Oh, and did we forget to mention those bejeweled statement nails? 


Jennifer Lopez

Jlo, who knows how to serve up a dramatic ponytail (and any other look for that matter), added the perfect finishing touch via a glamorous wide-brimmed hat. She gave justice to this detail like no other can! Even that nuder than nude lip became the perfect complement to a sparkle-heavy dress.


Kylie Jenner

Kylie wore a wispy updo with some twisted tendrils left out. As expected, her makeup was on point, with down-played nude hues both on her lids and lips—the perfect complement to that voluminous Balmain couture creation.


Miley Cyrus


A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

Miley went for a partially wet-look, with her roots slicked and the rest of her long hair in beachy waves. She kept her makeup delightfully simple, with just a flick of black liner, as if saying "I don't need much to look good!"


Camila Cabello


A post shared by Allure Magazine (@allure) on

Camila looked like Tinseltown royalty with her low ponytail and Bardot bangs. Her makeup, done by Allan Avendano, was all about monochrome pink, with matching rose on her cheekbones and lips.
