As if we needed another reason to fall completely head-over-heels for Beyoncé and her mind-blowing performance at the 59th Grammys, today we learned that all of the products used to achieve the star’s glowing look were under $20 each (okay, $20 USD, but still).
TBH, this has us questioning an impulse buy we made last month — we were so sure we needed that $70 foundation! What’s the return policy on this thing?
The ethereal makeup perfectly complemented Queen Bey’s naturally luminous skin (the pregnancy glow is real, folks), shining locks and golden getup. Also, that crown!
According to a press release, the entire look was dreamt up by celebrity makeup artist Sir John and used mostly all L’Oréal Paris products. The best part? All of the items are available at the drugstore for commoners just like us. Three cheers for Bey Bey!
And for her eyes — which we are absolutely going to rock this weekend — matte browns from the Colour Riche La Palette Nude ($20) were used, and the colour on her lids was blended together with Infallible Paints Eyeshadow in Nude Fishnet ($9).
After adding expert swipes of dark liner, he finished the look with one of our all-time favourite mascaras, Voluminous Original Mascara in Black Brown ($7).
Her lips? Yup, just as simple. Two shades of Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick (one in Cork and one in Chocolate Wasted, both $18 each) were combined to make the ultimate hue for the Queen.
And Beyoncé wasn’t the only one sporting an affordable face of beauty products. Katy Perry used all drugstore finds from her new line with CoverGirl. She even shared a BTS photo of her getting red carpet ready to announce the new collection.

It’s refreshing to see Hollywood’s leading ladies use cosmetics that don’t break the bank. Here we were desperately dropping hundreds of our hard earned dollars on expensive goods when it turns out the cheap stuff works just as well. Heck, if it’s fit for Beyoncé and Katy, we’ll wear it, too.
If you need us, we’ll be at Shoppers Drug Mart loading up on Beyoncé-approved eyeshadow.
