Sunday was a big night of TV watching for me. I was torn between the Grammy’s and the season premier of The Walking Dead. So I ended up watching “smart” and recording the Grammy’s to watch TWD. And since I’m sure you have zero interest in looking at bloody zombie faces, I’ll focus on the pretty people from the Grammy’s and what makeup looks stopped me in my tracks while I fast forwarded through the commercials from the red carpet and show.
#1 FULL EYEBROWS : Zendaya, image via
Get The Look : Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil in “chocolate”, $21
I don’t know much about Zendaya (Disney star I believe) but I do know that her eyebrows are SPECTACULAR!! Nice and full, that arch, and clean as a whistle. They have been filled into perfection which can totally be mimicked with a thin tipped waxy pencil like the above mentioned ABH pencil that is my current favorite eyebrow product.
#2 PINK LIPS : Miranda Lambert, image via
Get The Look : Nars “Schiap” lipstick, $27.
I just love this country crooner and she looked so pretty and cool at the same time! You can’t go wrong with a pop of color lip – especially when it matches your dress! I didn’t find exactly what her makeup artist used on her, but I swear this lip color looks spot on Nars “Schiap” which is the hottest pink EVER. I did a blog post awhile back on it here if you’d like to see it on me.
#3 GOLDEN SKIN : Kim Kardashian West, image via
Get The Look : Nars Body Glow, $59
I’m forever in awe at how good Kim’s makeup and skin look. She’s definitely got one heck of a glam squad on her side. And when you’ve got this much cleavage and clavicle showing, you might as well make it look as good as possible!! Us normal folks can learn a thing or two from this look by not ignoring the neck down when it comes to applying beauty and skin products. The above mentioned Nars body glow would make anyone look like a golden goddess.
#4 SHEER LILAC LIP : Ciara, image via
Get The Look : L’Oreal Infallible 8 HR Le gloss in “Posy” $6.99
Singer Ciara just looked radiant with her soft makeup and slicked back hair. Her lips were the perfect balance of not too nude (skin colored) by having a slight hint of lilac to them. This gloss in Posy is one I like to use on all skin tones to give a beautiful high gloss of color that isn’t the expected pink.
#5 WINGED EYELINER : Katy Perry, image via
Get The Look : Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in “Trooper” $19
If I knew anything about how to recreate hair I’d say I love this because of her lavender shade but since I have no idea how you get hair like Katy’s, I’ll go with her fierce cat eye! It’s super thick at the ends and tapers off towards the tear duct area as it should. Y’all know I can’t recommend any other liquid eyeliner but this one by celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D. It’s the ultimate pen. Watch the video of her using this pen to draw with on Sephora’s website – it shows you why it’s THE liquid liner to own, I just wish it came in more colors!
