(Face) Fashion Monday: Great Hair and Makeup Looks from the 2012 Grammys
There were some absolutely gorgeous looks at the 2012 Grammy’s last night. While there were some fashion faux pas, the real winner for me was the hair and makeup that stole the show. The looks were perfect for a special event or wedding!
I completely fell in love with Rihanna’s red carpet look! It was very subtle but added a sun-kissed glow with emphasis around those gorgeous eyes. The softly tousled hair rounded out her look. FABULOUS!
The retro looks from Adele, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry were stunning! Liquid liner in broad strokes with wings made their eyes POP and gave a great showcase for colorful lips. I was extremely enamored with Adele’s performance makeup. A definite must for the ultra glam lover.
Carrie Underwood always knocks it out of the park. The loose ponytail brings so much attention to vivid eyes played up with definition from liner and eyelashes. The soft hues on her cheeks and lips give showcase her beautiful skin as well.
While Fergie’s dress was a complete train wreck a la Michael Meyer’s Halloween series, her makeup played up well for those ladies who enjoy a more natural look for their faces. Sans vivid color, you can see more of her features such as her eye color and stellar bone structure. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough to detract from that hideous dress.
Add another for winged liner! Melanie Fiona looks like a bronze goddess with her defined eyes, deliciously contoured cheekbones and pulled back hair. I adore everything about this look!
I am a complete sucker for the smoky eye look. The blunt cut of the bangs ( which still seem to be a hit in 2012) add to the edginess of the metallic dress. Add in the soft grey hues around the eyes and nude lip, it’s the perfect look for a night out.
While I wasn’t a fan of Taraji P. Henson’s dress, I did adore her hair and makeup. The pink shimmery shades played off the iridescent shades in her dress and really set off her beautiful complexion. The windswept hair is what got me– a completely effortless look that screamed classic, glam and sexy. What’s best about it is that it can be done with short or long hair styles.
Who had your favorite look of the night?
We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the sudden and tragic passing of music legend, Whitney Houston. Her talented voice and acting ability garnered her many die hard fans who fell in love with everything about her– breaking the mold for many of the ladies we’ve mentioned above. Our prayers go out to her family and friends in this very difficult time.
Rest in peace, Whitney
