A range of electrifying red carpet looks proved A-lister attendees of the 2019 BET Awards were taking no prisoners at the annual event showcasing the best in Black entertainment. Everyone from Lizzo to Mary J. Blige came through with top-notch looks to kick off summer '19 aka "hot girl summer," and the star-studded guest list also delivered a slew of stunning beauty moments. While Rihanna slayed in a sleek half-pony and Yara Shahidi rocked pearl-encrusted braids, Ciara's BET Awards makeup look made use of a surprisingly affordable cult-favorite beauty brand.

Dressed in an eye-catching Jean Paul Gaultier mini dress featuring pointed shoulders and a floor-length train, the Level Up singer kept her makeup simple yet sultry, nailing the wet-hair look for the big night out. Featuring a smokey eye, natural glossy lips, and glowy highlighter accenting her smooth complexion, the entertainment icon's understated makeup look didn't distract from the red hot number and matching stilettos. Despite looking like a million bucks, it turns out the mother-of-two opted for a handful of products from Glossier, and most of them ring in at just under $20.

With celebrity makeup artist Yolanda Frederick breaking down each and every product used for this sleek and subtle beat, you'll likely be hitting up the Instagram-famous brand's website and adding more than one product to your cart.


From longtime staples in the skincare brand's product lineup (Priming Moisturizer), to new color cosmetic picks from the brand's recent launch, Glossier Play, there's much to consider from Ciara's plethora of products. Luckily, none of them are overly exorbitant, proving that looking like a total boss doesn't have to break the bank.
