Music's biggest night always
brings out the best in beauty trends for spring and the 52nd Grammy
Awards was no exception. Here's a look at my favorite looks of the night.
The top award goes to Keri
Hilson with her gorgeous purple smoky eye look. I've always loved a
purple smoky eye and she nailed it. The color is so fresh and pretty
and perfect for spring. Her slightly darker than neutral lip color gave
her look a little more dimension without competing with her eye makeup.
Her hair was simple and gorgeous. Her glowing skin completed the look.
A huge trend of the night was
the heavily lined smoky eye; a look seen on Victoria's Secret model
Marisa Miller, E! Correspondent Giuliana Rancic and of course Lady Gaga.
While Marisa and Giuliana chose a more neutral lip, the always outrageous,
never shy, Lady Gaga went bold with a bright bubblegum pink. Obviously
Lady Gaga's bold eyes and lips is not a look you'd wear to work,
but I'm digging it on the red carpet. If you're daring enough to try
the bubblegum pink lipstick trend, blot slightly and apply a clear gloss,
for a more wearable version. Each of these ladies looked lovely and
pulled off the trend in their own unique way.
Another trend that I'm loving
is the icy lined eye, using a silver or champagne shadow to highlight
the entire eye area. This trend was sported by Rihanna and Hillary Scott
from the band Lady Antebellum. Both ladies went for glowy skin and clear
gloss. This is a look I've always loved and it's quickly become a classic,
go-to look for Hollywood. This is a look that can easily be recreated
for day or night with a shimmery silver shadow, shimmery rose blush
and a clear or light pink gloss. Just brush the shadow around the entire
eye, line with black liner and apply a few coats of black mascara or
sexy faux lashes if you dare.
is just better, allowing your natural beauty to shine through like singer
Jane Zhang. Her look was simple and gorgeous. A light application of
winged liner on the top lid, a smudge of peach product meant for eyes,
lips and cheeks on all your features and a few coats of mascara. She
looked simply divine and very natural, without looking underdone.
