To say the hair and makeup at the 2014 Grammy Awards was a bit underwhelming would be an understatement? Where was Rihanna and her constantly-changing hair? And what was up with all the bridal beauty? (Yes, we're looking at you, Paris Hilton and Katy Perry!)
Luckily, there were a few celebrities who made it to the red carpet before the show started wearing some beautiful, bronzed looks. From Chrissy Teigen's ombre waves and sun-kissed skin to Ciara's gorgeous mommy glow to Miranda Lambert's amazing tan, these ladies were absolutely beaming.
See our best and worst beauty picks at the 2014 Grammy Awards and tell us who you'd add to our list.
BEST: Chrissy Teigen
If we woke up next to John Legend every morning, we might look like this, too. The model sizzled in beachy waves with side braids, smoldering eye makeup and bronze cheeks.
We love that Ciara kept it simple and sophisticated with a faux bob, fresh foundation, metallic gold eyeshadow and nude lipstick.
BEST: Miranda Lambert
Can Lambert's tan be any more perfect? The country star's radiant complexion paired well with her retro waves, lush lashes and bright red lipstick.
BEST: Rita Ora
The Roc Nation artist continues to channel a modern-day Marilyn Monroe with her full-bodied blonde curls, bold brows and matte pink lips. The purple smokey eyeshadow and false eyelashes add a modern touch.
WORST: Taylor Swift
While Swift's shiny Grammys dress was phenomenal, her eye makeup... not so much. A more subtle smokey eye or simple winged-out liner would have worked with her casual ponytail and pink lipstick.
WORST: Bonnie McKee
We were afraid that McKee would transform into Sonic the Hedgehog with just a whip of her flaming red hair. The dramatic hairstyle with her heavy makeup come across as very harsh.
WORST: Colbie Caillat
Caillat's severe topknot, runny mascara and faded lipstick left us scratching our heads and wondering if the singer ran out of time to get ready for the red carpet.
WORST: Cara Quici
We had no clue who Quici was before she showed up with this "Bride of Frankenstein" hair. It distracts from her otherwise pretty makeup.
