How to recreate the Grammy awards' 4 biggest makeup trends

After a rather interesting start to awards season, the 64th annual Grammy Awards gave us the reprieve we all needed; the songs we love, the stars we adore and the makeup inspiration for the weddings, bar mitzvahs, engagements, birthdays, dinner parties and nights out ahead!

From the blush look we predicted – to winged liner à la Maddy from Euphoria – here are the top makeup trends we spotted on the red carpet (and the products to recreate them yourself).

EUPHORIC COLOUR POPS

We’re living in a post-Euphoria world, and this year’s Grammy Awards red carpet did everything to prove it. Taking note of the micro-details and mini colour pops of the show’s second season – and the transition from rhinestones to pearls – Lil Nas X added a touch of teal to his inner corners to complement his pearl-encrusted suit. Meanwhile, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner called on a literal Euphoria makeup artist, Alexandra French, to give her a crisp, canary-yellow wing.

BUBBLEGUM BLUSH

At the very beginning of this year, we predicted that cool-toned bubblegum pinks would be in – and if the cheeks of Paris Hilton, Hailey Bieber and Laverne Cox say anything, it’s that we were right! Peachy hues have had their moment for the better part of the decade, now making way for bright Barbie shades. Our favourite take on the trend? Hailey’s matchy-matchy moment with husband Justin Bieber’s neon pink beanie!

SUPER SHARP WINGS

The Euphoria legacy lives on: classic black wings were amped up to be sharper, darker, and more dramatic. Best New Artist winner Olivia Rodrigo’s liner was slim, sleek and seriously symmetrical, DJ Millie’s strong and graphic, and Megan Thee Stallion took feline flick to the next level. If you were previously putting off practicing your wing, now’s the time to brush up (and if it goes downhill – attempt this tutorial from Julia Fox instead).

OMBRE LIPS

While our lips have taken a backseat to bold eye looks over the past few years (thanks to mask mandates et al), this week’s red carpet proved that lips are about to become the focal point of our beauty routines. Dua Lipa wore the perfect wine and Rachel Zegler pulled off coral as few can – but it was Doja Cat and Halsey’s ombre lips that got us talking. First-time Grammy winner Doja’s look satisfied our nudey-pinky-browny-’90s dreams, while Halsey’s vampy take on red was so lush it felt almost cinematic.
