In this picture, Grande wears an oxblood lip and pairs it with a defined cat eye. It's the perfect dark makeup look for fall, and pairs perfectly with her lacy top and diamond necklace.

It's fun to play around with textures and finishes for an unexpected—but still exciting—look. Here, she showed us that a pale matte pink lip can be paired with a shimmery metallic shadow.

Who says nude needs to be muted? Spice up a nude look by sporting a shimmery nude shade on your eyelids along with big lashes.

A pink matte lip can be hard to pull off. The key is to match it with similar tones of pink everywhere else. Here, Grande wears a sweetheart-necklined dress befitting the pop princess she is.

Much like her other makeup, this is definitely shimmery eye goals. It's subtle enough that it doesn't overpower her features, but still strong enough that you see the glitter. Match with a similar but glossy shade on the lips to round out the look.

Personally, we love sticking to the idea you should keep the rest of your face neutral when we sport a smoky eye. See how Ari rocks it here? It's because with the eyeshadow, her eyes become the main focus, and that's strong enough to stand alone.

Copper tones rule this beauty look. The shimmery, metallic copper shadow complements her brown eyes well, with a pink nude lip to round out the look.

This look combines all three of Grande's staple beauty looks into one: cat eye, red lip, shimmery shadow. What could easily fall into the dangerous category that is "too much," this look totally balances out.

It doesn't have to be all shimmer all the time, though—this matte nude eye allows for her red lips and liner to do all the heavy lifting.

We're living for this shiny, deep-nude lip. Particularly when it's combined with a cat-eye so sharp it could cut diamonds.

Sometimes less is more. The matte nude lip and mostly-matte lids make the little bit of blue shimmer in the inner corner of her eyes pop. This is a major case for matching your makeup to your dress.
