Get the Look: Janelle Monae at the 2011 Grammy’s

Known for her always exquisite style, Grammy nominee Janelle Monae radiated perfection on the red carpet with a beauty look created with the help of Makeup Artist Oslyn Holder for Nyx Cosmetics. Oslyn wanted to keep things classic for the red carpet, creating a 40s-inspired doll-like beauty look using Nyx Cosmetics latest & greatest products.

“Janelle has a beautiful complexion, giving me the perfect base to work in classic, yet fun pops of color,” explains Oslyn.

For the Face

To keep Janelle’s skin looking fresh and dewy, Oslyn used a blend of Nyx Cosmetics Liquid Makeup in Caramel ($14) with a face moisturizer to create a light and flawless foundation for the look.

For the Eyes

Oslyn wanted to focus the color on Janelle’s cheeks, so she kept things subtle for the eyes. She used Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Brown ($5.50) as a base, then added definition using Nyx Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Charoal Brown ($5.50). Oslyn then used Nyx Cosmetics Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black ($4.50) to line the top lids of Janelle’s eyes followed by two coats of Nyx Cosmetics Volumizing Doll Eye Mascara ($9) to give her lashes that bright-eyed doll-like appearance.

For the Lips

Oslyn used a combination of Nyx Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil in Toast ($3.50) and Nyx Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil in Espresso ($3.50) as a foundation for lip color. She topped the nude lip look with Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in London ($6) and a swipe of Nyx Cosmetics Black Label Lipstick in Natural ($7.50).

For the Cheeks

To give cheeks a great pop of color with depth, Oslyn used a blend of Nyx Cosmetics Grinding Blush in Apricot ($16.50) and Nyx Cosmetics HD Grinding Blush in English Rose ($16.50).
