Grammys No Fuss Attitude

January 29, 2014ICLS0Tags: , , , Categories: Home, ICLS, Face, Skin

The Grammys are normally a time when the stars seem to relax, loosen up a bit and show more of their playful side. Whether the 2014 Grammys were a total hit with viewers in terms of Beauty Trends is still up for debate. Some say that stars like Beyoncé, Pink and Taylor Swift took the loose locks and fuss-free waves too far. However, I actually appreciated the fact that the looks these women were rocking were somewhere in the realm of attainable. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not comparing myself to the likes of “Queen B” herself, but some award shows like the Oscars put the stars on such a pedestal that my motto for recreating their looks might as well be, “why bother?” So even if you hated the gothic look of New Zealand born singer Lorde, or wasn’t a fan of Beyoncé’s “wet look,” can we at least agree that they looked like real women?

It’s likely that these “looks” were no accident. In fact, according to GloMinerals, (an anti-inflammatory, acne-healing, medical-grade makeup brand who really know their stuff) all of these Grammy looks follow what is trending in 2014! So we decided to compile a list of some of the most prominent looks from Sunday night’s Grammys and recreate them using our own GloMinerals products! If you are able to recreate these looks for a night out we would LOVE to see your photos. Please feel free to share on our Facebook page.
