Award season is in full swing, and that means there is no shortage of show-stopping red carpet beauty moments. Tonight the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas is yet another opportunity for the stars to pull out their best and brightest looks. Also known as music’s biggest night, the Grammys bring out top artists like Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, and sometimes (hopefully) Beyoncé. The best 2022 Grammys beauty looks are bound to be full of top trends like intricate eyeliner, bright lips, and glowy complexions — and the question now is which stars will come with head-turning, jaw-dropping glam.
A-listers like Rachel Zegler and Addison Rae are keeping the natural glam train going, but because the Grammys are a bit less formal than the Oscars, there are also plenty of playful moments to shake things up. Upon arrival to the carpet, Olivia Rodrigo turned heads with a bold cat eye, while Laverne Cox tried her hand at the monochromatic trend. Japanese Breakfast’s inventive canary yellow look just might spark a brand new makeup trend this summer.
Ahead, check out all the best beauty moments that have rolled out on the Grammys red carpet.
Olivia Rodrigo loves a graphic eyeliner look, so it wasn’t a total surprise that the “Driver’s License” singer appeared at the Grammys with a dramatic cat-eye. Paired with a soft, rosy glow and nude lip, the liner stole the show.
The red carpet host brought the drama with an eye-catching magenta moment spanning her hair, eyes, cheeks, and lips. She also rocked razor-thin eyebrows, a Y2K-inspired look that’s been slowly creeping its way back into the trend cycle.
The queen of dramatic but classic beauty looks arrived on the carpet in a retro pin curl updo and soft glam complete with pink lips, her signature bold arches, and subtle white eyeliner in the bottom waterline.
Chloe Bailey stunned in a sparkly gown and cape, perfectly complemented by her soft glam makeup and swirly baby hairs.
Nothing says summer vibes quite like canary yellow. Japanese Breakfast’s bright yellow eyeliner and nails matched her playful Valentino gown for a distinctly sunny — yet super chic — look.
Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X debuted stunning green eyeshadow in an inner eye look that is right on trend for summer.
Beachy waves and natural glam always have a place on the red carpet, and Addison Rae’s look is further proof of that.
Rachel Zegler’s upcoming role as Snow White makes perfect sense after seeing her gorgeous glam at this year’s Grammys. Her rosy cheeks, bright red lip, and sleek bob are undeniably princess-like and perfectly complement her off-the-shoulder gown.
To create Zegler’s sweet hair look, hairstylist David von Cannon used an array of Bumble and bumble products, including the Thickening Full Form Soft Mousse, Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil, Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray, Hairdresser’s Dry Oil Finishing Spray, and Spray de Mode.
Halsey is straight out of a noir film (in the best possible way) with her dark, vampy lip, cat-eye liner, and short hair with flipped-out ends.

Megan Thee Stallion
“Cat-eye” doesn’t quite capture this eye look from Megan Thee Stallion that’s amping up the drama on the red carpet, but for now, it’ll have to suffice.
Never one to hold back with her style, Cynthia Erivo graced the Grammys with a bold navy blue smoky eye and radiant skin.
Dua Lipa swapped her trademark brunette locks for a stunning bleached look, along with a deep red lip and minimal eye makeup.
Living up to her Instagram nickname “Sweet T”, Tinashe looks sweet as ever in a baby pink ensemble, rosy makeup look, and curly updo.
