We're Obsessed with Beyoncé's Boss Babe Beauty Look from the 2018 Grammys

Peek inside the superstar's Grammy-night beauty bag. 

By Jenny Berg

There was plenty of action onstage at the 2018 Grammy Awards. But, if you're like us, you found it hard to peel your eyes off the front row of the audience, where Beyoncé held court. With husband Jay-Z and mini me Blue Ivy Carter flanking her, the superstar gave off a total boss-lady vibe. And though she was partially covered up with a dramatic black hat and sunglasses (yes, indoors and at night — this is Queen Bey, people!), Beyoncé's beauty look still shone. 

The singer worked with her longtime makeup artist Sir John on the evening's look, and the two relied on products from brands like Glossier, YSL Beauty, and L'Oréal Paris. Read on to see exactly which salves Sir John applied to the queen herself, and get some tips for how to recreate the look at home. 

Glossier Cloud Paint

After using Glossier's Skin Tint all over the singer's face, Sir John dabbed the gel-and-cream-based blush in "Beam" onto the apples of her cheeks.  

L'Oréal True Match Lumi Glotion


To give Beyoncé some subtle sheen, Sir John smoothed L'Oréal's glowing lotion onto her cheekbones, the bridge of her nose, and other facial high points. 

L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista

He sealed in the glow with a few dabs of highlighting power in "Sunlight." 

Glossier Boy Brow


Glossier's cult product helped prime the singer's brows for prime time. 

L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Liner

Sir John lined Bey's lips with matte liner in the purple "Strike a Matte-ch" hue.

Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain


Beyoncé's bold purple lip came from mixing two liquid-matte lip stains. Pick up the YSL stain in Fuchsia Intime and Carmine Encounter to mimic the look.
