If you had any doubts about pregnancy glow being a real thing, Beyoncé proved that it is — and then some — during her Grammys performance. After an introduction from her mom, Tina, the newly pregnant pop icon took the stage in a goddess-inspired production that had her looking stunning in both hologram form and in real life.
Hologram Beyoncé appeared in a chain-link bra and underwear, draped in a piece of yellow fabric and wearing a starburst floral headpiece. The look was accented with plentiful gold jewelry, including bangles, door-knocker earrings, and a neck plate. Real-life Beyoncé (which, let’s face it, is still pretty otherworldly) wore the same headpiece and jewelry, but had on a sheer, intricately beaded gown that put the emphasis on her baby bump. Even if Beyoncé weren’t to take home awards for all nine of her Grammy nominations tonight, she’s already won the entire show.
For tonight’s Grammys performance, Beyoncé wasn’t only carrying for two; she was also highlighting for two. Talking to Allure.com, her longtime makeup artist Sir John explained that he went a little extra on the highlighter and doubled up. To create a golden-goddess look, he technically tripled up on the glow by first adding an illuminator (L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Lumi Illuminator in Golden) into foundation. He then used the same gold cream on the cheeks and patted gold-powder eyeshadow on top for extra highlight (L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine).
As she performed “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” Beyoncé’s lips wore two shades of $18 long-wear brown liquid lipstick. Sir John used Dose of Colors in Cork as a lipliner and then Chocolate Wasted as the main. She might have looked priceless, but you can affordably buy the main parts of her beauty looks.
