Cloud Paint, Boy Brow, Body Hero, the WORKS

If you thought Beyoncé's make-up look for this year's Grammys looked hella expensive, you couldn't be more wrong. Surprisingly enough, there were actually several bargain beauty brands at play here.

Featuring some L'Oreal and YSL, the majority of Beyoncé's look for the night comprised of none other than cult millennial brand, Glossier.

'We wanted to make a major impact on Grammys night,' says Queen B's make-up artist Sir John. 'The inspiration was Black Panther and I'd describe the beauty look as 'rebellion'. She is wearing a large hat, sunglasses and strong hair so I wanted the make-up to complement that.'

The look in question consisted of a flawless base, defined brows and bold purple lipstick, complete with ALL the accessories. Read on for every beauty product used on the First Lady of music, as told by her MUA.


'I wanted her skin to look flawless but not overdone, so I used Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, £20, in Dark and Deep. I then used Skin Tint in Rich to contour.'

'I'm loving a coral blush at the moment as it really brightens up the complexion. I blended Glossier Cloud Paint, £15, in Beam then added Haze to the countoured areas for extra dimension. I finished the complexion with L'Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow for a fresh, natural look.'


'I kept with the Black Panther theme for her eyes and did a natural, feline flick cat eye. I lined under the eye using a brown kohl eyeliner, and used a fierce black inky liquid eyeliner on top.

'To finish off the eye, I was lucky enough to be one of the first people try a new and exciting product from glossier – stay tuned to hear more but I LOVED using it on Bey all weekend.'

'I groomed and shaped Beyoncé's brows using Glossier Boy Brow in Brown (£14). Her brows are super accentuated, as she is wearing sunglasses throughout the ceremony, so I wanted them to look super strong.'


'We finished the look with a super strong magenta black lipstick. I used YSL Tatouage Couture Lip Stain (£29, Boots) and it offset the soft fresh cheeks and eyes perfectly.'

'Tonight Beyoncé was showing some skin so I wanted her skin to have a luminous glow all over. I started by using Glossier Body Hero Daily Perfecting Cream (£18) to hydrate the skin, and then finished with L'Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator for an extra glow.'

Just when you thought Glossier couldn't get any more popular...

Thank goodness they ship to the UK now.
