Grammys Makeup & Nails: Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae looked luxe in her tux at the Grammys last night. Here, the beauty breakdown of her makeup and nails, courtesy of CoverGirl

Says makeup artist Saisha Beecham, “I was inspired by a fresh faced look that I found in a magazine – clean with a touch of glamor. Janelle has embellishments on her jacket so we wanted to keep her makeup look clean and simple.

With such a hectic schedule, I immediately started with COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation in Warm Carmel. I love that this foundation has concealer, foundation and powder all in one – it saves so much time! To warm up her skin, I used Classic Color Blush in Iced Plum to make her cheeks pop and then I added a touch of TRUblend Minerals Bronzer in Golden Sunrise

On her eyes I glided Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadows in Golden Sunset, only underneath the crease. To give her a wow factor, I lined her eye with Lineexact Liquid Liner in Very Black very close to the lashes.

For the lips, I applied LipPerfection LipLiner in Passion all over the lip, and topped with LipPerfection Lipcolor in Hot (305). ” 
Janelle’s nails were tended to by Tracey Sutter. Says Tracey, “I started with a light file to her nails. Shaping them square making sure the corners were not sharp, tending to the cuticle area next. I first applied two coats of COVERGIRL Outlast Nail Gloss in Forever Festive. I then added a layer of Outlast Nail Gloss in Clear for extra shine on her hands and toes. Janelle was sporting her signature tuxedo, with a pop of gold on the collar, so we wanted to accent that with a funky statement nail. For the statement nail we used Outlast Nail Gloss in Black Diamond with gold metals on the top, and then used Outlast Nail Gloss in Snow Storm to create the small circle designs.”
