Have You Noticed That Ariana Grande Always Wears These 5 Beauty Trends?

When you think about signature beauty looks, we're guessing icons like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and Twiggy come to mind. But a steady aesthetic isn't relegated to old Hollywood stars. Just look at Ariana Grande.

Since breaking out of the Nickelodeon mold and settling into pop superstardom, the songstress has become almost as famous for her high ponytails and cat-eyes as she is her vocal chops. But there are a few things Grande always does that fly under the radar. For example: carefully-placed highlighter, bubblegum-pink lips, and a modern take on eye makeup. Oh, and let's not forget her expertly-applied body makeup. Want to see all the trends the singer has on constant rotation? Check out the slides ahead.

1. A Well-Placed Glow
Ariana Grande loves a glowy, luminous finish just as much as the next A-lister, but she doesn't just highlight her cheekbones — she highlights her nose, too. This technique is used by makeup artists to elongate the nose, making it appear higher and slimmer.

Grande opts for a touch of nose highlighter on the red carpet and IRL — and it couldn't be easier to copy. Simply grab your go-to luminizer and tap it onto the tip of your nose, blending as you go. Make sure to highlight your cheekbones, too, so your whole face has a similar glowy effect.

2. Super-Sleek Hair
We all know that high and half-ponies are Grande's go-to hairstyles, but the star also always gravitates toward sleek textures over wavy ones.

Grande's hair is naturally curly, so to achieve her polished 'do, she definitely keeps a good straightener, shine serum (we like this one), and a few extensions in the mix.

3. Body Gleam
When it comes to red carpet appearances, Grande can almost always be found in body makeup. Sometimes, it's in the form of a spray tan; other times, just a bit of foundation contoured down her neck. The result every time? A shimmery décolletage.

After months of hiding under turtlenecks and puffy jackets, chances are your chest and face don't match (especially if you're a fan of bronzer). Instead of shelling out for a professional spray tan, opt for gradual self-tanners or body makeup to even things out — just make sure to blend to avoid lines and streaks.

4. Modern Mod Eyes
Grande is partial to good ol' winged liner. But we're not talking thin kitten flicks à la Gigi Hadid or Alexa Chung — the singer opts for thick, retro wings that make her big brown eyes and long lashes the focus.

To make her typical wings a bit more sultry, Grande often slicks a bit of black kohl onto her waterline. To finish off the look, she reaches for a pair of gossamer falsies to further emphasize her eyes.

5. Bubblegum Pinks
We've seen Grande sport burgundy and crimson shades on the red carpet, but in her day-to-day life, she's almost always wearing a layer of matte pink lipstick.

The effect is similar to a nude but has a little but more punch. Thinking of rocking a similar hue? Try MAC's Saint Germain lipstick.
