Celebrity Spotlight: Grammy's 2017 Best Looks

The Grammy's are always an award show where the red carpet can get a little crazy (look up what CeeLo Green wore this year, I'll wait). The show had some fantastic performances as always. Beyonce slayed while very pregnant with twins and Adele's emotional tribute to George Michael shone despite a difficult start. Performances often speak for themselves, but we also like to give some love to the fashion looks. Without further ado, let's look at BeautyOfASite's favorite looks of the night!


Adele had a pretty good Sunday night. Adele took home five Grammys, sweeping album, song, and record of the year. We love that Adele changed up here stand-by classic black dress for some color! Her olive green dress by Givenchy is complimented by a soft high bun and fairly neutral make-up to let the texture and elegance of the dress take center stage. 



Is Demi Lovato channeling some Kardashian style? Jokes aside, we loved Demi in this Julian Macdonald intricate cord-knit stunner. The intricacy of the dress is set off by a loose, textured beachy hair. She follows the trend of neutral make-up that she put her stamp on with a bold brow. Power to you miss Lovato, we love it!

Okay, so we know this wasn't a red carpet look, but we can't talk Grammy's without talking Beyoncé. Queen Bey looked like a golden goddess complete with a shimmering sun-ray crown, a nice spin on the flower crown trend ubiquitous to Snapchat and Instagram. The garment, by Peter Dundas, is sheer and light. She continues the ethereal look with metallic bronze eye shadow that blends into her complexion so she just glows. Slaying as always.

What were you're favorite looks at last Sunday's Grammy's? Let us know in the comments below!

Q&A: Initial Impact!


How do I style a necklace and what are some trendy pieces right now?




mudpie-initial-bar-necklaceA good piece of jewelry can be the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. While you can go for bolder, statement pieces they tend not to be very versatile. What we recommend is to invest in simple chains at varying lengths and use charms to mix and match your look.

A big trend right now, with celebrities and us normal people alike, is the initial bar necklace. We love Mud Pie's take on the trend with its simple design in a warm gold. Since it is such a subtle piece you can wear it on its own for a subdued look, or glam it up by layering longer chains. Look for your letter here!

 

Winter Get-Away Beach Bag Musts!

When we're in the heart of the winter months, nothing sounds better than a nice vacation somewhere warm. If you are about to head out to the beaches to escape the cold, check out our Winter Get-Away Beach Bag Musts to make packing will be a breeze. To warmer tides!

1. The Bag

It all starts here! Look for a large tote that can hold everything you need. Also check to see if the interior has water resistant lining for the inevitable soppy beach towel. Mud Pie Shimmer Juco Totes are a great size and feature a laminated wipe-clean interior that will save you in the long run. Check out the Mud Pie collection of beach totes here!

 

2. Primped and Polished

Who says you have to pay for a spa day? Bringing along some of your favorite polishes and a nail file if you plan on a relaxed while you refresh by the beach. We recommend the fun, tropical colors of the Zoya Paradise Sun collection in shades like Mae and Aphrodite

 

3. Luscious Lips

Keep your lips moisturized and protected with a stash of your favorite lip balms. Look to see if your chapsticks have SPF protection to block out harmful UV rays. If you are looking for something fun, we love Agatha Ruiz tins like Tropical, or the citrus flavors in Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed collection.

 

4. Moisturized and Protected

A good moisturizer is important to have on hand, no matter the weather. Travel sized companions like Hempz Original Moisturizer or Get Fresh Santa Monica Rich Body Cream are good for when you're in a pinch for space. Also looking for moisturizers with SPF protection, like Refinee Daily Defense Cream, help combat sun damage.

 

5. Beach Babe Hair

Beach days can sometimes be bad hair days. Keep your hair sleek and sun protected with sun oil sprays like Phytoplage Protective Beach Spray. You can also embrace the ocean breeze with salt-based texturizing spray like Pre-Game Texturizing Spray by A Beautiful Life for easy style waves.

Q&A: Blowout Beauty


How do I get a great looking blowout that doesn't frizz?



The key to great-looking straight styles is drying the hair fast to reduce frizz. A high-wattage blow-dryer -- 1800 to 2700 watts -- works best. Start by dividing your hair into sections and use your dryer's nozzle attachment to direct the heat downward. A big round brush will provide the tension you need to smooth the hair as you dry and create the sleek look you desire. When purchasing a hair dryer, go with a professional model. They cost a bit more upfront, but they last a lot longer than the drugstore brands.

We love: Solano Top Power 3200, $200
