Recreate the Head Turning Makeup Looks You Saw at the Grammys

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Did you watch the Grammy's, night before last? Some of the looks on the floor were amazing, for sure. The stars strutted the red carpet in cut-out gowns and sequins from head-to-toe. The biggest beauty trend seen on the carpet was sultry, smoky eyes and soft, natural lips. Both model Bella Hadid and singer and songwriter Ciara sported their take on the trend!  

Recreate these head turning makeup looks with the below tips! Both of the looks can be recreated using Younique’s top-selling product Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+which sells at least one unit every 10 seconds* and increases lash volume by up to 400 percent.

Bella Hadid
The look: A twist on natural beauty with a slicked back hairstyle

For a natural glow, brush on bronzer (try Younique Beachfront Bronzer, SRP: $32) on the cheek bones, hairline and neck area to accentuate the face. Finish by using blending buds to create a natural radiance!

Capture Bella’s intense smoky eye look by layering a mix of eyeshadows. Use Younique Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette 3, SRP: $49, for the cool pinks and purple shimmer shades. As a base, brush on shade Ecstatic across the eyelid and apply Irate to the upper lash line. Sweep Flippant onto the inner and outer eyelid to create a smoky wing look. Use black eyeliner on the inner rim of the eye and on the eyelid to exaggerate the look.

Finishing the look: The lips are kept light and natural. Add a pop of pink gloss (try Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss in Loveable, SRP $15) for luster!

When you're going for an ultra-sleek look, it’s important to tame flyaways or frizzy pieces. Part hair down the center and apply gel to hair from the root to just above the ear. Brush hair behind ears with a comb. For extra hold, blow dry hair till dry and apply an extra hold gel along the roots as needed (try L.A. Looks Define and Shine, SRP: $2.99) to keep hair in place.

The look: Fresh, healthy glowing skin and a sleek, swept-back hairstyle

Ciara’s look starts with flawless skin. Attain a smooth dewy complexion by spritzing rosewater (Try Younique Refreshed Pure & Natural Rose Water, SRP: $29) help set and refresh the skin!

Keep eyes deep and sultry by using warm eyeshadow shades in the brown and peach family. Take lashes to the next level by applying two coats of Younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+, SRP: $29. First, apply an even coat of the Transplanting Gel to the lashes. Immediately apply  a layer of Fibers over the Transplanting Gel. Seal the fibers by applying one more coat of the Transplanting Gel.

Create eye-catching brows using a precision brow liner pencilYounique Moodstruck Precision Brow Liner, SRP: $19. To create the appearance of thick brows, brush on Younique Moodstruck Precision Brow Gel, SRP: $19) which contains buildable fibers, similar to the Younique Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.

Finishing the look: Keep lips a deep neutral shade with a glossy shine (Try Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss in Livid, SRP: $15).

For this romantically windswept hairstyle, loosely pull hair back into a low braid and tie with an elastic band. For extra shine, use a shine or polishing serum to keep hair picture perfect all night (Try La Bella Super Shine Polishing Serum, SRP: $5.99).

I think I'm pretty safe from needing any re-creation lol

I don't wear makeup at all. You just don't want to see the mess I can make. That and without glasses I can't see much.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

It sounds like waaaaay too much trouble to me. Makeup is a thing of the past for me.

I wouldn't mind learning how to do it. But I suppose it would all take too long and change my face too much

Ai Sakura said...

I wear minimal make-up too and wish I had the skills to do it better. I do like the dramatic change falsies provide though and they are easy enough for me to put on myself haha

I've been wanting to try that fiber mascara! My lashes are in serious need of help!

I love lip gloss, and had no idea that Younique made one. I haven't tried them, but I have heard many great things about their lashes.

Make up is not my thing. I usually wear no make up.

I wear NO MAKEUP -- except special occasions...
I think it would be fun to have someone do a makeover on me one day.

Younique is my FAVORITE! I love everything they sell. But of course I most love my mascara. :)

Kristi said...

I wear makeup so seldom that when I do, I appreciate blogs and directions like yours to help me out. Otherwise I would be very lost.
