We can expect one thing from the Grammy Awards: swooning hair and makeup that gives us something to talk about. These are not the Oscars. It’s not even the most relaxed Golden Globes (which didn’t even happen this year). This is the time when musicians and celebrities go all out and experiment with new looks they’ve never tried before. The beauty of the Grammys for 2022 is no different – it might even be wilder than last year. There is no subtle makeup no makeup here – just bold beauty, look at me. And we live for it.
Grammy beauty is always quite iconic. Just think of Adele’s upside-down blonde lob and her big cat eyes in 2012 or Beyoncé’s caramel curled hair and bronze eyeshadow in 2017. Or, we can go back even further before most of us leave. memories. There was Selena Quintanilla’s iconic red lip in 1994 and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bleached cut in 1998. And who can forget Jennifer Lopez in 2000 with her green eyeshadow paired with her green dress?
