The Brit Awards, a staple in the award season, is the British equivalent of the Grammy Awards in America. Across the pond, British music stars arrived on the red carpet with hair and makeup looks that literally made our jaws drop. From Katherine Jenkins’ bright fuchsia lips to the insane braid on Preeya Kalidas, the Brits certainly proved their guts when it came to braving beauty trends on the red carpet.
