Bust out the sparkle, guys: Halsey’s silvery glitter eyes at the AMAs 2016 were pretty much everything, serving up some solid holiday inspiration with her American Music Awards beauty look: A gorgeous, glittery eye makeup move that she whipped out for her 2016 AMAs performance with The Chainsmokers on Sunday night.
Minutes after hitting the red carpet with a fresh-faced beauty look—which featured a subtle dusty-rose eye shadow and a glossy pink lip combo—the singer stepped onstage for her “Closer” performance with a fierce eye-shadow moment worthy of your undivided attention.
Leaving her red-carpet look intact (which we thought was understated, chic, and absolutely beautiful, BTW), she layered a showstopping iridescent silver glitter all over her lids, courtesy of makeup artist Lottie. And while the shimmer had a major disco-ball effect under the strong stage lights, the fact that the rest of her makeup was kept minimal meant the overall effect was cool rather than cheesy—and cool in that nonchalant, oh-this-sparkly-stuff? sort of way.
To get the look, Lottie layered a combination of Danessa Myricks Constellation Glitter in North Star and Latte on the singer’s lids, creating the glittery goodness that shined from the stage. And then with the same glow-effect in mind, the makeup pro added a slight sheen with M.A.C Skinfinish in Soft Frost, and finished the sparkly moment with understated nude lip using Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Snap.

And she didn’t just switch up her makeup—in addition to Halsey’s silvery glitter eyes at the AMAs 2016, there was also a whole outfit change in effect, too. Halsey wore a one-sleeve, hooded white minidress adorned with pins and studs and white and metal chokers. The mini moment was a stark contrast from her arrival look, an all-white latex-looking, belted jumpsuit and marble box clutch, which you can check out below.
