Beyonce's 2017 Grammys Makeup Is Actually Something You Can Pull Off At Home
If you went to sleep dreaming about Beyonce's golden goddess look at the 2017 Grammys, you just woke up to killer news! Beyonce’s 2017 Grammys performance makeup is actually something you can actually pull off at home. Yes, you can totally copy one of the most buzzed about makeup looks from the 2017 Grammys without breaking the bank and with ease. Her look was Bey-ond and wearable; now it can be yours! I'll pause for a second to let that sink in.
Bey's golden goddess x Mother Mary look is surprisingly simple to replicate because most of the products that were involved in the creation of this look are available in drugstore aisles. That, and the fact that L'Oreal makeup artist Sir John shared the exact products and techniques he used to craft Bey's radiant glow. Pay attention, since the MUA clearly had the Midas Touch when crafting this look.
You can copy it exactly as is or you can dial it down a little, depending on the occasion and your skill level. But one thing is certain. You. Will. Glow.
According to the press release received by Bustle, here is how Sir John created Beyonce's glowing Grammy makeup by feature and by product.
First, prep and hydrate the skin with Hydra Genius Liquid Moisturizer.
Both products are $10 and you can custom blend them! Sir John recommends adding eyeshadow pigment, like Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine ($7.99), to up the golden-ness of the skin and face.
This shadow is multi-purpose — you will come back to it with this look and will use it as anything but an eyeshadow!
For a little contouring action, use the Infallible Total Cover Concealing & Contour Kit, paired with the Infallible Pro-Contour Palette. Buff and blend away any lines of demarcation with the brand's new blending sponges, which are $6 a pop.
Return to the Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator and apply to cheekbones. You can mix it with your body lotion and apply to your arms, legs, and your sternum for additional luster and radiance; contoured cleavage and gleaming sternums were so in at the 2017 Grammys, BTW. If you are showing skin with your outfit when rocking this makeup look, you can and should glow all over.
You can also use the aforementioned Eternal Sunshine eyeshadow to add a little extra highlight on the cheekbones by sweeping it over the Lumi Glow because #layers.
To get smoky and golden eyes, you can rock the Colour Riche La Palette in Nude. Use the deeper brown shades in the crease and lighter nude shades on the lid to create a sculpted smoky eye. Add Infallible Paints Eyeshadow in Nude Fishnet and buff it out for a halo-like effect.
Use the brand's Brow Stylist Frame + Set to fill and groom brows, as well.
Then add Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Chocolate Wasted to the sides and corners of the mouth to create a contoured, multi-dimensional lip.
Have fun rocking this look!
