The Hair and Makeup at the 2021 BRIT Awards Are as Exciting as We Could've Hoped
The 2021 BRIT Awards have been a long time coming — as are the beauty looks that accompany the annual event. This year's award show was postponed by three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it was well worth the wait to see what our favorite celebrities were going to do when it comes to their hair and makeup.
Right off the bat, the red carpet beauty was even more exciting than we could have hoped for. Dua Lipa stunned us with an incredible towering beehive, which brought to mind Amy Winehouse's iconic hairdo, and Griff gave us a truly out-of-this-world look with lilac makeup and a crystal-embellished headpiece. Billy Porter went for an all-black ensemble for the occasion, which included jet-black lipstick and smoky eyeshadow, but he was sure to add a teeny-tiny crystal to the inner corners of his eyes to give the beauty a little bling.
