There’s no denying Chrissy Teigen has been on our beauty radar for, well, ever. But last night at the 2016 Grammy Awards, Teigen stepped out with the most gorgeous complexion we’ve ever seen. Sure, the model is pregnant and no doubt rocking that expectant glow, but her stunning shimmer is also due in part to some amazing beauty finds. We got the scoop from her makeup artist, Mary Phillips, as to exactly what products she used to enhance that natural radiance, plus how we can combine high and low beauty products to mimic the look at home.

Phillips says she was inspired by Teigen’s pregnancy glow when creating this look and wanted to use “warm bronzes and heated desert tones” to make the natural colors of Teigen’s skin tone, eye color, and hair color appear lifted. And boy did she succeed! We were especially taken by Teigen’s rosy yet natural cheeks. To create that supple look, Phillips really only used three products on the cheeks. First, she applied drugstore find, Physicians Formula Super BB #InstaReady Contour Trio Stick SPF 30 in Bronze Trio ($13, drugstore.com). Pro tip: Phillips recommends keeping contoured areas super sheer and barely there. This stick is sheer, light, easy to use, not to mention it takes all the guess work out of contouring.

The next product she used is another drugstore all star: Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Blush in Natural ($13, physiciansformula.com). This pretty pink hue brightened up the star’s full cheeks with just a dash of color. Phillips suggests applying a touch of blush to the apples of the cheeks, the upper crest of the forehead near the hair line, and just a small dusting along the chin and neck to balance out the natural glow!

Lastly, Phillips finished Teigen’s golden glow with one of our department store favorites, Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love Glow ($40, shop.nordstrom.com).”This is a beautiful, natural color for a super warm undertone—sheer but not too sheer, not sparkly, just right!” she says. And we couldn’t agree more! To bring the whole look together, apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks for a fresh pop of color that adds extra dimension, says Phillips.

If this isn’t proof that you can use both drugstore and department store makeup for a red carpet look, we don’t know what else is.
