If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from the Grammy Awards, it’s killer hair and makeup. This isn’t the Oscars. It’s not the Golden Globes. This is when musicians and celebs go all out. Grammys beauty for 2020 is no different. There’s no subtle no-makeup makeup here—just bold, look-at-me beauty. And we live for it.
Grammy beauty is always pretty iconic. One just has to think back to Adele’s flipped-out blonde lob and major cat eyes back in 2012 or Beyoncé’s crimped caramel-colored hair and bronze eyeshadow in 2017. Or, we can go even further back to before most of us remember (or were alive). There was Selena’s iconic red lip in 1994 and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bleached buzzcut in 1998. And who can forget Jennifer Lopez in 2000 with green eyeshadow matching her plunging green dress? Not us.
Who knows what will end up being as iconic this year but we’re lucky to have stars such as Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lady Gaga who always bring it and inspire our next Sephora run. Thanks to Lizzo, we already have metallic shadow on our minds. See all our faves from this year, below.
The top model looked positively stunning in bone straight hair and an ultra-thick cat-eye. Makeup artist Beau Nelson used 100% Pure skincare and makeup for this look, including the Long Last Liquid Eye Liner in Black Tea ($30 at Amazon) and Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara in Black Tea ($26 at Amazon).
The country crooner is very on-trend with shimmery pink eyeshadow. Hairstylist Ryan Richman styled her new bob with ultra-affordable Suave hair products, including Suave Professionals Hairspray Flexible Control Finishing ($2.94 at Walmart).
Lizzo’s makeup is bronze and beautiful with natural lips and flawless skin. Makeup artist Alexx Mayo tagged some favorites in his Instagram. He prepped her skin with Versed Baby Cheeks All-in-One Hydrating Milk ($17.99 at Target) and Skin Soak Rich Moisture Cream ($17.99 at Target). He also showed when he removed Lizzo’s “peach fuzz and dead skin” with Dermaflash ($199 at Sephora). For her makeup, he used Urban Decay, of course. I spot the Naked Honey ($49 at Sephora) and Reloaded palettes ($44 at Sephora), Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter ($22 at Ulta) and Stay Naked Foundation ($39 at Sephora). For her glam lashes, he used Kiss Lash Couture Luxtensions Collection in Velvet ($7.99 at CVS).
The culinary expert and TV host is looking glowier than ever and absolutely killin’ it in this lob, styled by Jen Atkin.

The nominee is a classic beauty in this throwback updo and cat-eye makeup. Makeup artist Pamela Cochrane used Pat McGrath Labs EYEdols Eye Shadow in Statuesque ($25 at Sephora) swiped across her lower lash line. The full lashes are FetishEyes Mascara ($30 at Sephora) and the nude lip is PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil in Buff ($28 at Sephora) and MatteTrance Lipstick in 1995 ($40 at Sephora).
The Grammy winner stuck with a minimalist palette, opting for her naturally wavy hair and perfectly groomed brows. “For Rosalia’s look tonight, we wanted to create a look that was true to who she is – the ultimate cool girl. We kept it simple with a lot of wavy texture and shine,” said hairstylist Jesus Guerrero in a statement. He used OGX hair products to complete the look, including OGX Shine + Argan Oil of Morocco Dry Oil Conditioning Mist ($6.99 at Target). He gave her loose waves with the ghd Platinum+ Professional Performance 1″ Styler ($249 at Sephora).
The singer’s werkin’ her blonde lob to the side. And that nude lip? Perfection. It’s Buxom Cosmetics Plumpline Lip Liner in Incognito ($18 at Sephora) with Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Gloss in Samantha ($21 at Sephora), courtesy of makeup artist Ash K. Holm.

When your makeup matches your bra, you know you’re on the right track. And those luxe lashes? Makeup artist Colby Smith used Lashify 10mm natural-style “A” Gossamers ($20 at Lashify) and applied them to the outer corners of Lo’s eyes. “I chose the A10s because they’re the most natural Lashify lash, and Tove’s very understated when it comes to glam,” he said in a statement. “She wants a supernatural, almost like she doesn’t have them on look, so it was the perfect lash to go with. The A10s look like your natural lashes only slightly enhanced.”
