J.Lo & Taylor Swift Both Wore This Trending Makeup Trick At The Billboard Awards

The Billboard Music Awards red carpet may have been all over the map in the fashion department — we saw everything from huge ruffle sleeves to head-to-toe leopard print — but the makeup was far more wearable. As in, we’ll be copying these looks tomorrow.

See, if there’s one thing we took away from tonight’s show, it’s that matching your eyeshadow to your outfit is a surefire way to instantly pull a look together. What’s more, it makes you look like you thought long and hard about your look when all you did was throw a little shadow into the crease of your eye to match your top. Need a visual?

Jennifer Lopez has been a longtime fan of monochromatic makeup, whether it’s matching her lips to her outfit or her eyes. At tonight’s BBMAs, the star paired her velvet ensemble with a deep burgundy smoky eye. We’re willing to bet good money that she put her new makeup collection with Inglot to good use tonight.

For her return to the award show circuit (Swift hasn’t attended an award show in two years), the star stepped out in spring’s most popular color: lavender. But she didn’t just wear the color on her gown, a light dusting of matte lavender shadow adorned the crease of her eyes, too.

Ciara’s bejeweled gown was a play on soft neutrals. She stuck to the theme with her makeup, too, by donning a golden eye, lots of lashes, and a glossy, nude lip.

At first glance, Dua Lipa’s makeup may look like nothing more than a cat-eye and nude lip. But look closer and you’ll see that the singer-songwriter wore a layer of matte purple shadow in the crease of her eyes to match her metallic dress.

When Halsey stepped out wearing a black gown and a deep red smokey eye, we knew we had to cop the look. But then she changed into a matching crimson dress to present — and it sealed the deal for us.
