The Internet Can't Stop Talking About Doja Cats Grammy's Glam and It Was a Mix of High-Low Beauty

There are endless noteworthy things about Doja Cat's Grammy Award experience on Sunday night. There was the switch from blonde to brunette hair, the pastel mint Versace dress, the glass purse full of candy, and most notably, the musician nearly missing her award win because of an ill-timed bathroom break. As a beauty writer, I was unsurprisingly captivated by Doja's awards night beauty, which is a masterclass in mixing high- and low-priced products.

The Internet was immediately ablaze with praise and obsession for Doja Cat's glam the night she won her first-ever Grammy Award. On Instagram stories, TikTok, and across websites, I saw Doja Cat everywhere. Thankfully, the comprehensive breakdown of Doja Cat's beauty routine for the night was shared by various brand representatives, as well as her makeup artist — and it's a multi-step process that makes my heart sing.

Doja Cat's Grammy Night Skincare Routine

Ernesto Casillas, celebrity makeup artist, began prepping Doja's skin with products from incredibly affordable brand The Ordinary. First, he cleaned her skin with the new Squalane Cleanser, then drenched her skin in moisture and hydration by using the Niacinamide 10% and Hyaluronic Acid 2% serums. He then used the SolaWave Red Light Therapy Wand (a recent celebrity-favorite beauty tool for its microcurrents and warmth), which functions as a facial massage but also helps skin better absorb products. Before moving on to her makeup, Casillas used The Ordinary's Natural Moisturizing Factors.

Doja Cat's Grammy Night Makeup Routine

For Doja Cat's makeup routine, Casillas relied on the luxurious and relatively expensive Pat McGrath Labs. The extensive makeup routine is 15 plus steps — which is a lot, even for a makeup obsessive, such as myself — so I've condensed it down to the highlights.

The pink shade of the Sublime Skin Highlighting Trio is to credit for Doja's incredible highlighted glow. It is a $50 palette, but I can tell you from personal experience, it is beyond worth it. I have hit the pan and repurchased this several times. The face-sculpting blush was a shimmering peach shade of Divine Powder Blush called Nude Venus.

Two eyeshadow palettes were used for the rapper's dimensional look, Mothership I and Mothership VII. The former is an array of black and blue shades, and the latter, browns and neutral pinks.

Like Megan Thee Stallion, Doja rocked a '90s supermodel lip — the pièce de résistance of which is Lust Lip Gloss in Love Potion. It's currently out of stock at Sephora, but Peach Perversion is a great, similar sub-in.

Finally, Casillas used Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton Skintillating Diamond Body Shimmer because as I keep saying(!), body glitter is back, baby. This one is not in stock, however, so I'd recommend this Patrick Ta Glow Body Oil in its place.

And there you have it: Doja Cat's Grammys Night beauty routine, which ranges from $7 serums to $125 palettes.
