The standout makeup trend for this year’s Grammys performers and nominees was the perfectly polished ‘nearly nude’ makeup look.

To achieve this perfectly polished look complexions were given a flawless, clean glow with soft contouring and highlighted cheekbones, a swipe of mascara and nude glossed lips.

The look is fresh, confident and epitomises modern beauty – proving yet again that fully prepped and moisturised skin, with the right tone and texture of foundation expertly applied is absolutely key to achieving every make-up look.

Here are our favourite makeup looks of the night.
