Makeup Favorites from The Grammy’s 2013 February 12, 2013

The 2013 Grammy’s were this past weekend and I unfortunately had a bad sleeping situation with my daughter so we were watching Disney instead! Do not fear, I’ve been scouring the net for my favorite looks from the night and I want to share with you the celebrity makeup styles that stood out to me.


Katy Perry
Makeup Artist – Jake Bailey

First off, how beautiful is the neckline of this dress!?! I’m in love with this woman – now officially my female crush! She looks so glamorous and elegant at the same time and the contrast between her sea-foam green dress and that jet black hair is just out of this world! I think her makeup artist executed this look with perfection – the soft smokey eye, feathery lashes and nude lips works magic against the drama of the gown.


Makeup Artist – Mylah Morales

Rihanna’s uber talented makeup artist did such an amazing job with her red lips! It’s often difficult to match red lipstick if wearing red in your wardrobe – you have to be so careful that the hues don’t clash or take away from one another! Lucky us, Mylah Morales tweeted the exact lip combo she used on Rihanna for the Grammy’s – she lined her lips with Cherry lip pencil, filled them in with Ruby Woo (one of the best colors, IMO, made by M.A.C.), and placed Lady Danger in the center and blended. The simple black liner adds perfect dimension to the lash line and leaves such a polished look! BRAVO!!


Makeup Artist – Michael Ashton

Adele can do no wrong in my book. She is such a stunning woman in so many aspects of the word – her voice:like an angel, her confidence: contagious and she always has such flawless makeup. Her signature look of full-on lashes, soft pinky-nude lips and contoured cheekbones was in full-effect in only a way she can pull off! Another beautiful aspect of this look was the hair… it looked so effortless and whimsical. As always, A+ from me, Adele, A+!

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Alexa Chung
Unfortunately, after much searching, I could not find who her makeup artist was!

Alexa’s messy updo and soft makeup fit her subdued style perfectly. The orangey-red lips are such a beautiful pair with her fair complexion – it gives her a fresh and young look that works so well!

And last but surely not least


Justin Timberlake
Makeup Artist – not needed!

Really. Really! Justin Timberlake got so much buzz for his slicked back hair and for good reason! This polished look is so different from the curly-cue heartthrob we all feel in love with in the 90’s. His grown-up Grammy look is a refreshing change, and we can all hope to see more of it… although he could be covered in mud and grit and still be charming.

So there are my favorites from The Grammy’s 2013.

If there were some favorites of yours that I missed, let me know I’d love to see!
