Pink & Queen Latifah's Grammy Beauty: How To! (Glam Slam)

Two unforgettable moments at the Grammys were Pink’s performance and Queen Latifah officiating the marriage of 33 couples.

The ladies know how to steal the show!

Here’s how the COVERGIRLbeauties looked good doing it!

Pink’s Grammy Beauty Look:
Pink hit the carpet in a show-stopping red gown. Her fabulous dress was complimented perfectly by a graphic eye and a nude lip. Pink has great skin and she totally showed it off tonight. To help create the perfect glow, Pink wore a small amount of COVERGIRL truBLEND Liquid Makeup, mainly through the T zone, which uniforms the skin and gives a photo finish for the base. After the foundation, she doesn’t need much! Just a little COVERGIRL truMAGIC Luminizer to add highlights to the high planes of the face, cheekbones, jawline and crest of the upper lip.

Then, COVERGIRL truMAGIC Sunkisser to sculpt the sculpted the cheekbones, jawline and temples to add warmth and dimension. Another great use for the truMAGIC Luminizer is for your body just for a little glow.

To start the bold eye like Pink’s, apply truBLEND FixStick on the lid, brow bone and the inner corner of the eye. It adds a touch of brightness and defines the brow. The next step is eyeliner. Pink had a sharp black line along the base of her lashes COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Molten Black also helped her eyes totally pop. Then, just a quick curl of the lashes and COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara by Lashblast for red-carpet worthy eyes! The new Bombshell Mascara adds volume and intensity, which creates this amazing wet-lash look.

The brows were perfected and elongated using COVERGIRL Brow & Eyemakers Pencil in Soft Blonde and set in place with clear gel—COVERGIRL Professional Natural Lash Mascara never fails to keep pesky eyebrow hairs in place.

Pink showed off her amazing lips with a great nude color. She wore COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in Coffee Break and LipPerfection Lipliner in Seduce to create the perfect red carpet pout.

For Pink’s performance we kept her beauty look the same as her red carpet look. The only addition was some small punked pyramid crystals to the ends of her lashes for some extra sparkle.

Pink’s COVERGIRL Nails Complete the Look!

Pink rocked not one, but two polishes tonight! She layered COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Forever Fawn under one coat of COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Natural Blush to create that perfect, pinky nude.

Queen Latifah’s Grammy Beauty Look by Sam Fine:
The inspiration for the beauty look all begins with the dress… and Queen Latifah’s request to look elegant, simple and chic! Every look begins with flawless skin - beautiful coverage and a gorgeous glow! I used a synthetic foundation brush to gently apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless Foundation. This long-lasting formula fuses foundation, concealer and powder in one easy step! It was perfect for an evening of red carpet interviews, her groundbreaking on-stage performance and after parties.

After applying foundation, I dabbed a bit of COVERGIRL truMAGIC Skin Perfector along the bridge of the nose, crest of the cheeks and along the collarbone to highlight her golden skintone. I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder to set underneath the eyes and the center of the face, and then applied my favorite bronzer, COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer, near the outer perimeter of the face for glowing results.

A clean eye doesn’t mean that I don’t use eye shadow; it simply means I used natural looking shades to enhance her eyes. Using my index finger, I applied COVERGIRL Bombshell ShineShadow by LashBlast in Ice Queen over the entire eye to add a shimmering effect. Then, I applied Bombshell Intensity Liner by LashBlast in Pitch Black Passion closest to the lashline, extending it at the outer corner to lift the eye. Lastly, I applied individual lashes and few coats of COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black for added drama.
A deep colored lip always looks elegant and chic, so I chose COVERGIRL Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Soaked In Wine (Q850) for an effortless finish!
