SZA’s Makeup Artist Gives The Details Behind The Singer’s Grammys Look

Deanna Paley used one cosmetic brand for the singer’s face.

Last night, SZA walked away with her first Grammy at the 64th annual award show. All eyes were on her vintage, floral Jean Paul Gaultier dress and her natural makeup.

“SZA’s look tonight evokes enchanted floral goddess. Inspired by her gorgeous Jean Paul Gaultier dress, I wanted the makeup to be floral toned, feminine and flirty – something to complement her whole look, but not overpower it,” said Deanna Paley, the singer’s longtime makeup artist. The two have worked together on multiple of SZA’s red carpet looks, include the 2021 Billboard Music Awards and the 2021 American Music Awards.
