Speaking to Ariana Grande’s makeup artists, one thing is clear: She is a true artist. She’s not only carved out a space as a trailblazer in the music industry; she’s also become a fixture in the beauty sphere, especially with R.E.M. Beauty (which she’s been secretly wearing on tour and on the red carpet for years) and her successful line of Ariana Grande perfumes (speaking of which, I’d like to go on the record and say that her Cloud Eau de Parfum is as good as you’ve heard, if not better).
It’s also worth noting that Grande’s beauty team regularly lauds her collaborative nature and kindness—a trait not always seen in superstars of her size. “It’s always a collaborative vibe working with Ari,” says makeup artist Michael Anthony. “She makes me feel so empowered and valued by celebrating my creativity and my ideas. We just have so much fun creating together.”
