Grammy's 2017: How to Channel Beyonce's Golden Goddess Look

All hail the queen. In case we needed any reminding that she's a bona fide goddess, Beyoncé took to the Grammy stage wearing an actual halo last night for a much-anticipated performance, flanked by a holographic legion of fellow female warriors. Oh my god. All in all, it was a powerful tribute to motherhood and the strength of feminine power and because it's Bey, she looked absolutely flawless while doing it.

But otherworldly talent aside, Beyoncé is a woman of the people, and you might be surprised to learn that her ethereal beauty look actually came courtesy of a bunch of drugstore makeup. Take that highlighter, for example, with a luster you could probably see from space: It's L'Oréal, and it costs $11. And in the interest of full disclosure, it was actually paired with a gold drugstore eye shadow to up the wattage even further.

We can all be golden goddesses without dropping a ton of cash. Get the full details below:

#1. Start with good skin

#2. Prep with Gold
To help model Sara Sampaio switch on her angelic glow before the recent Victoria’s Secrets show, beauty pros count on unapologetically luxe gold leaf face masks as their ultimate backstage secret. Besides making for a glamorous selfie, tiny gold particles actually penetrate skin to tune up its tone, texture and elasticity, whilst calming redness and sensitivity.

TRY: Sloane Inc. Gold Glow Recovery Mask (USD $65). It’s lavish blend of 24K pure gold and sea buckthorn berry extract (a.k.a Mama Nature’s liquid gold) soothes, nourishes and recharges skin for an instant look of vibrant radiance, and serves to protect the sublime beauty of your most priceless asset over time.

#3. Lay on the glowing gold
To create a golden complexion, Bey's makeup artist used L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation ($ USD13) mixed with True Match Liquid Lumi Illuminator in Golden ($ USD13) to create a luminescent complexion. 

To furthur "amplify" the golden look, Bey's makeup artist mixed in an eye shadow pigment, such as Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine ($USD 8) and pressed it on top of the parts where highlighter was applicated to create a striking, golden luminescence. 

We also highly recommend Stila's Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Glowing Goddess (USD $24). "The long-wearing, sparkle eyeshadow has the perfect blend of pearl and glitter to leave your eyes with incredible luster and shimmer. With its uniquely lightweight, water-infused texture, it glides on effortlessly, then dries down smoothly, locking in maximum sparkle with minimal fallout for elevated eye looks" - Gigi, Beauty Intern.

For the body, mix lluminator with body lotion and apply all over your body, including your legs, arms, and chest for an overall, golden look. We love Natasha Denona's Body Glow (USD $55) for its light, fresh, and fluid consistency that’s easy to apply on the body for an allover, radiant glow. This body shimmer is quick-drying, non-sticky, and resistant to water and sweat so that its suitable for any occasion.

You can copy her 24-karat manicure on your next visit to your local salon. Manicurist Lisa Logan applied two coats of OPI Nail Lacquer in Glitzerland ($USD 14) to complete Beyoncé's all-gold-everything look.
