Lizzo wore a full face of discount makeup to the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party

Her entire makeup look cost less than $60!

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / March 12 2024

Lizzo is the absolute queen of bargain beauty.

Remember when she revealed that her entire skin care routine costs less than $60? Because we will never forget.

The singer and rapper is back at it with the discount beauty finds, except this time she and her makeup artist Alexx Mayo dreamed up an entire makeup look for Lizzo's first-ever Vanity Fair Oscar's After Party for less than $60. 

Mayo used all ColourPop Cosmetics products to create the '90s inspired look, which featured a thin brow and a nude colour palette.

The exact ColourPop Cosmetics products Lizzo wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar's After Party

To create Lizzo's flawless base, Mayo used multiple shades of the ColourPop Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Creamy Concealer ($9 from ColourPop) to correct, conceal and illuminate the singer's complexion where needed. The full coverage concealer has a natural finish that still looks fresh on camera and in-person thanks to the hyaluronic acid and coconut water-infused formula. 

Lizzo's cheek makeup was our favourite part of Mayo's artistry; the makeup artist layered the creamy ColourPop Stix Blush in 'Pretty Thing' ($7 (usually $10) from ColourPop) with the ColourPop Pressed Powder Blush in 'Just Cruisin’ ($8.40 (usually $12) from ColourPop) to create a cloud skin wash of colour.

In lieu of contour, Mayo used the ColourPop Matte Bronzer in 'Pacific Beach' ($8.40 (usually $12) from ColourPop) and the ColourPop Matte Bronzer in 'Moonlight Beach' ($8.40 (usually $12) from ColourPop) to add a bit of sunkissed warmth to Lizzo's complexion.

To finish, Mayo gently tapped the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in 'Mighty Morphin' ($7 from ColourPop) onto the centre of Lizzo's eyelids using the pad of his finger. It gave the singer's eye look a beautiful shimmer of light-catching highlight that made her eyes pop. Then the makeup artist applied a healthy layer of the ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in 'One Kiss' ($9 from ColourPop) to Lizzo's lined lips for a sumptuous shiny effect.

The price tag on Alexx Mayo's makeup kit wasn't the only thing that surprised us on Oscar's night. This tool was in almost all celebrity makeup artist kits.
