The 2023 Grammys are bringing all things glitz and glam, not to mention a plethora of hair and makeup inspiration. If we could, we would include a rundown of each and every look that graced the ceremony’s red carpet, but the least we can do is highlight some of our favorites. From Doja Cat’s fierce cat eye to Bebe Rexha’s voluminous blowout, these are the five looks that blew Reviewed’s beauty team away. Keep scrolling for some major hair and makeup inspiration, in addition to a glimpse at some products you can use to recreate the look at home.

1. Doja Cat’s eyeliner
Coming off the heels of an extravagant Paris Fashion Week (where she was memorably covered in Swarovski crystals), Doja Cat is continuing to let her beauty looks do the talking on the Grammys red carpet. The singer delivered a strong eye statement by way of some wispy lashes, a sharp cat eye and a coat of silver flecked on the bottom lash line of the inner corners.
To achieve Doja’s sharp cat eye, reach for a liquid eyeliner with a fine felt tip, like the Reviewed-approved Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. It claims to be smudge-free, stay intact all day and latch onto the skin “with ease.” Our tester, Jessica Teich, noted in her review that it “is easy to apply” and “doesn’t budge on watery, sensitive eyes or oily lids.”
2. Lizzo’s orange eyeshadow
Lizzo has officially arrived, and she came to this year’s awards wearing a monochromatic, orange eyeshadow look to complement her Dolce & Gabbana gown. For a deep orange hue similar to the “About Damn Time” singer’s, we recommend playing around with the three shades of orange found in the Huda Beauty Color Block Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette. The palette purports to be designed with all skin tones in mind to create a variety of subtle and dramatic eye looks.
3. Laverne Cox’s shimmering gold lip
“All that glitters is gold” and Laverne Cox turned that statement into a reality. From her gold chrome nails to her eyeshadow, the Orange is the New Black star came glowing in gold. The subtle gleam of gold on her lips is arguably the shining star of this look, and you can easily recreate this effect at home with a dusting of a powdered highlighter, such as the Rare Beauty Positive Light Silky Touch Highlighter in the shade “Flaunt” (true gold). It promises to deliver an an “instant glass-like sheen for an easy, natural-looking glow that lasts.” Our beauty editor Jessica Kasparian confirmed its versatile nature over on Reviewed’s beauty TikTok channel, Beautorial, by brushing it over her eyelids.
4. Bebe Rexha’s voluminous blowout
Bebe Rexha’s layered blowout has us swooning over here, and one product that can certainly achieve a style of this magnitude is the Reviewed-approved Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. It promises “to deliver gorgeous volume and brilliant shine in a single step.” When Kasparian put the styling tool to the test, she reported that “you can dry your hair from root to tip and customize your ‘do to have more or less volume and curls inward or outward at the ends.”
5. Shania Twain’s red lipstick
The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” singer appears to have taken some cues from Cruella De Vil’s wardrobe, and let’s just say you don’t need a black-and-white ensemble and a red wig to channel the energy of Shania Twain’s look for the night. In our opinion, all you really need is a red statement lip that you can easily recreate with the help of the Reviewed-approved Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in “Missy Fierce” (dark red).
It claims to glide onto lips like a gloss but dries down into a matte finish. Teich also put some of the most popular liquid lipsticks to the test, and arrived at Wet N Wild’s as being the best. “The lipstick is lightweight and so smoothing, it almost looked like it filled in any lines on my lips instead of settling into them like most liquid lipsticks,” she recalled of her experience in her review.
