These Grammy Nominees Prove Less Is More When It Comes To Makeup

Looking good, ladies!

The hair and makeup at the Grammy Awards is traditionally over the top, to put it mildly. Music artists hit the red carpet often wearing next to nothing amplified by the most intense eyeshadow, fake eyelashes, faux tan bronzer and ornate hairstyles. But we've noticed that the biggest acts in pop, R&B and hip-hop have shifted toward minimal beauty looks.

Taylor Swift swapped her metallic eyeliner and crinkle curls for softer makeup and a sleek lob. No doubt Nicki Minaj has turned over a new leaf after ditching her wild-colored wigs and Barbie-pink lipstick. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has followed suit with her glamorous getups.

Check out these Grammy Awards nominees' dramatic beauty makeovers below. Plus, see how artists like Beyoncé, Adele and Rihanna have also transformed.
