My Fave Makeup Look From the 2015 Grammy Awards Red Carpet

taylor-swift-grammys-lady-gaga-grammysI’ll cut right to the chase. My two favorite makeup looks (or trends, more like) from tonight’s 2015 Grammy Awards? Allover nude or natural-looking makeup (a la Beyonce, Gwen Stefani and Chrissy Teigen) and jewel toned eye makeup (think Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift).

Ponytails Rocked At The 2013 Billboard Music Awards

taylor-swift-billboard-music-awards-2013-ponytail-backWhen it comes to rock-star-chic, a dressy ponytail is just what the doctor ordered at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Love it. The key to keeping this sequened-dress-appropriate is lots of volume at the crown of your head. If you’re not very adept with teasing (like, ahem, me), try using a teasing spray like Redken Quick Tease 15 Backcombing Lift Finishing Spray, $18. When you spray it right at your roots, it creates lift and gives hair a nice matte finish. When it comes to where you place the pony, really anything goes, but I love how these ladies opted positioned it just in the middle of their head, in line with their ear. It’s young and very hip. Just like most rockstars.

Who rocked the ponytail best?
