Discover four notable make-up trends from music’s biggest night.

Although the 64th Grammys ceremony has been and gone, it’s provided us beauty aficionados with endless amounts of red carpet inspiration. From dramatic eye make-up to statement hair and striking lips, celebrity make-up artists went all out, experimenting with every colour of the rainbow and paying homage to nostalgic Y2K trends.

We look at four noteworthy trends from the Grammys 2022 and the products you can use to recreate them at home, whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next occasion or you just want to see what all the fuss is all about.

1. Fluffy lashes

Lady Gaga

Celebrities like Lady Gaga and rapper Saweetie sported sets of fluffy, natural-looking falsies — proving that volume is a must when it comes to framing the eyes. 

Try the aptly named Manicare 45. ADELE full-bodied lashes from Glam by Manicare, giving you that lifted, feline look that’s in right now.

2. Graphic liner

Michelle Zauner.

If we’ve taken anything away from 2022, it’s that bold graphic liner is the hottest beauty trend right now. Some of the best liner looks of the evening included rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s fierce, floating cateye and singer Michelle Zauner’s elongated yellow wing. 

Take your liner to the next level at home by simply switching up your liner colour or shape. We recommend Sephora’s Intense Ink Liquid Eyeliner (available in 12 innovative shades) for creating precise geometric lines without mess. 

3. Ombré lips

Doja Cat.

We’re watching the return of nostalgic Y2K fashion and beauty with great interest, including the polarising low-rise style trend. However, one trend we can wholeheartedly get behind is ombré lips. actress Laverne Cox and singer Doja Cat showcased this effect impeccably, and achieving it at home is easier than it looks.  

Reach for a lip pencil in a shade darker than your natural lip colour, lining the lips to create a defined edge. Then, dab on a lighter shade of lipstick in the centre of the lip, blending out with the Hermès lip brush or your finger for a diffused ombré pout. For a soft, sumptuous pout, we recommend a velvety matte lipstick, like the Rouge Hermès

4. Eyeshadow accents

Lil Nas X.

You can’t go wrong with a smokey black eye for red-carpet glamour, but accentuating the inner corner of the eye is taking over. This striking look was seen on Lil Nas X, perfectly complementing his suave Balmain get-up. 

Quick to recreate, reach for the Diorshow On Stage Liner in 001 matte white (because white eyeliner is the new black) or a vivid colour from the versatile range, smudging it into your inner corner.
