Get Makeup and Skin Like Janelle Monae at the 2011 Grammy Awards

How to Get Janelle Monae's Grammy Awards Makeup Look

For Janelle Monae's appearance at the Grammys, makeup artist Oslyn Holder wanted to give her a pretty, '40s-inspired look with classic (yet fun) pops of color. To learn how to get dolled up like Janelle, using products from Nyx, just keep reading.

Face:
For a fresh and dewy look, Oslyn blended the brand's Liquid Makeup in Caramel ($14) with a little face moisturizer. To give Janelle's cheeks color with depth, Oslyn blended and applied the Grinding Blush in Apricot ($17) and HD Grinding Blush in English Rose ($17).

Eyes:
Oslyn used Eye Shadow in Brown ($6) as a base, then added definition with the Eye Shadow in Charcoal Brown ($6). She lined the top of Janelle's lids with Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black ($5), followed by two coats of Volumizing Doll Eye Mascara ($9).

Lips:
Oslyn applied a combination of the Slim Lip Pencil in Toast ($4) and the Slim Lip Pencil in Espresso ($4) to Janelle's lips. She then topped the neutral lip color look with Soft Matte Lip Cream in London ($6) and a swipe of Black Label Lipstick in Natural ($8).
