SO major. Thank you all for joining and congrats to the Twitter giveaway winners!

I absolutely loved the style on the GRAMMY red carpet last night, it was all about bold color and cutouts as a fashion statement – way to get around those new fashion rules, ladies! Last night we learned that a strategic side split or mesh panel can give a look sex appeal without sacrificing style. We learned that pantsuits are about to come all the way back. We learned that RED is a surprisingly hot color on the red carpet. We learned SO many things!

And we discussed some of the hottest new P&G Beauty products, like Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Duo (which I’m excited about), and the glorious return of classic Herbal Essences Shine Shampoo & Conditioner (which my husband is excited about), and the hotness that is the new COVERGIRL LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm and Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss (how much did you love the new commercials for nail art featuring Nervo? SO HOT)!

The good folks at P&G Beauty also gave me the lowdown on COVERGIRL Janelle Monae’s look on the GRAMMY red carpet. Janelle of course rocked her classic black, white and red color scheme but thanks to hot nails and a fierce lip, the look stayed fresh and inspiring! Want the full breakdown so you can get the look yourself? Of course you do! Check it out:

Janelle's Nail

I started with a light file to her nails. Shaping them square making sure the corners were not sharp, tending to the cuticle area next. I first applied two coats of COVERGIRL Outlast Nail Gloss in Forever Festive. I then added a layer of Outlast Nail Gloss in Clear for extra shine on her hands and toes. Janelle was sporting her signature tuxedo, with a pop of gold on the collar, so we wanted to accent that with a funky statement nail. For the statement nail we used Outlast Nail Gloss in Black Diamond with gold metals on the top, and then used Outlast Nail Gloss in Snow Storm to create the small circle designs.

I was inspired by a fresh faced look that I found in a magazine – clean with a touch of glamor. Janelle has embellishments on her jacket so we wanted to keep her makeup look clean and simple.

With such a hectic schedule, I immediately started with COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation in Warm Carmel. I love that this foundation has concealer, foundation and powder all in one – it saves so much time! To warm up her skin, I used Classic Color Blush in Iced Plum to make her cheeks pop and then I added a touch of TRUblend Minerals Bronzer in Golden Sunrise
On her eyes I glided Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadows in Golden Sunset, only underneath the crease. To give her a wow factor, I lined her eye with Lineexact Liquid Liner in Very Black very close to the lashes.

For the lips, I applied LipPerfection LipLiner in Passion all over the lip, and topped with LipPerfection Lipcolor in Hot (305).”

Janelle LOVES that Hot lip and so do I!
