We won’t know if Lana Del Rey will win her first (or second or third) very overdue and well-deserved Grammy Award until the ceremony is over, but we can say one thing for sure: Del Rey definitely deserves an award for some of the best glam on the red carpet.
No stranger to vintage hairstyles that reference eras bygone, Del Rey, who’s nominated for five Grammys, stayed true to her aesthetic but added a goth glam twist. Rocking a voluminous blowout and beehive bangs topped with an oversized retro bow, dark lip liner, fluffy cat-eye lashes, and subtle shimmering bronzer, she truly looked like an (especially edgy) Old Hollywood starlet. She is the blue print!
The Skims campaign star’s glam was created by makeup artist Etienne Ortega, who used the Charlotte Tilbury’s The Beautyverse Palette, Feline Flick in Panther, and Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes Mascara for her dreamy eyes. Del Rey’s trademark over-lined pout was achieved by lining with Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude, and finished with Hollywood Beauty Icon Lipstick in Icon Baby. I’m taking notes.
Finally, the “A&W” singer’s flawless complexion was achieved with Hollywood Contour Wand in Fair/Medium, Airbrush Flawless Finish in 2, Airbrush Bronzer in 1, and finished with Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray to keep everything in place.
Del Rey’s beautiful brunette shade and subsequent shine were courtesy of OLAPLEX Global Ambassador and celebrity colorist Jacob Schwartz. “Lana has fabulous dream hair and so much of it. She never uses extensions. Her hair just does what you tell it to do,” says Schwartz. “I do her roots pretty frequently, but we don’t always color the bottom. Instead, the ends will end up looking lighter, almost naturally.”
