Sarah Tanno – aka the makeup powerhouse behind Lady Gaga – takes us for a trip down Grammys memory lane with a little makeup dedication to her girl, Gaga.
From ice cold to red hot – and every temperature in between – Lady Gaga’s Grammys hair and makeup looks have been diverse, different and of course, spectacular. Take a walk with us (and Tanno), as we revisit Gaga’s Grammys beauty from 2015 to today.
ice cold in 2015
First up, 2015’s Ice Queen feels. The big, bad blowout made way for a set of spectacular frosty lids, with Tanno buffing a metallic marine green shadow into the upper mobile lid and finishing off the eye look with a big pair of falsies.
On fire in 2016
In 2016, the dial quickly turned from ice cold to red hot, with Gaga’s look a fiery one. Hair was quiffed high in Ronald McDonald red, acidic and bright, while Tanno got experimental, too. Playing with bolts of electric blue and crystal handiwork around the eye, the finished look was the Gaga we know and love; conceptual, colourful and a little crazy.

It was like the hair dye has just washed out a little, even though it had been a whole year, as 2017 served up pink-rinsed hair and tequila sunrise eyes in red and gold glitter.

There were a Million Reasons to love this look, and one is those eyes. The perfect wing, the heavy glitter, the colossal lashes, the glimmering swoop of lilac shadow; it was picture-perfect.
pOLISHED PARTY GIRL in 2019
Taking a slightly disheveled side-step from her Award-winning actress hat, today’s Grammys look recalled the Gaga of old – kind of. Looking rockstar rather than film star, Gaga’s beauty look was polished party girl; streamlined panda eyes, glossy lip and textured, scruffy hair. Tanno played on a classic smokey eye with glints of silver (an ode to her crystal-heavy Celine dress), focussing on the outer corners with imperfect perfection to create the ultimate “lived in” look, like she’d “put it on yesterday.”
