In case you missed it, Lizzo’s performance for the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards was one for the ages.
Though she has attended the Video Music Awards twice, this was her first time gracing the stage with her presence. The songstress with the incredibly bodacious body performing “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell” was everything I claim to be: DOPE!
What was even doper was her monochromatic makeup paired with a bright, in-your-face bodysuit and matching colored booties.
Her makeup artist for the performances, Alexx Mayo, wanted to create a bug wow factor - a “razzle dazzle” is what he called it.
If you were just as mesmerized by the vibrantly-colored crystal accents lining Lizzo’s eyes or the incredible, winged shape that covered them as I was, here’s where you can purchase the products for your own inspired look, or possibly, a total recreation.
To create the look, Mayo used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Goldmine ($22) to form the winged shape of her eyes. The waterproof pencil goes on smoothly, stays soft and is super-creamy for blending. The award-winning, bestselling liner dries to a long-lasting finish that won't budge.
Bringing the drama, he used the new UD Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette. “The palette contains 12 rectangular pans of never-before-seen shades of tans, browns, and golden hues in matte, shimmer, and glittery finishes. Specifically, their names are — from left to right — Flyby, Sweet, Swarm, Amber, Keeper, Golden, Honey, Queen, Hive, Drip, HBIC, and Sting.” As of now, there are no details of when the palette will be released, but word around the beautysphere is that it may be somewhere around mid-September.
The look was topped off with the finishing touches of Swarovski crystals placed around the corner of each eye, creating a look worth bringing down the house.
