How To Get Ariana Grande’s Signature Look

Since the mid-2010’s, not much about Ariana Grande’s signature look has changed.

She still rocks her high pony and bronzy glam makeup look, and you can recreate it at home.

How To Get Ariana Grande’s Hair

Before you begin, it’s important to start off with straight and smooth hair. Apply a heat protectant like the Tresemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray before straightening, and then apply a smoothing cream like the Tigi Bed Head After Party Cream to your hair. The rest of the hairstyle is hard to explain in words without showing visual steps, but YouTuber Ariba Pervaiz has a very simple and easy-to-follow tutorial to get Ariana Grande’s signature ponytail.

If you want to go the extra mile with hair extensions, celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton posted an easy-to-follow tutorial to get the perfect ponytail. The Ariana Grande tutorial begins at 7:27 in the video below.

How To Get Ariana Grande’s Makeup

Her Face Makeup

One thing I love about the majority of Ariana Grande’s makeup looks is that they’re bronzed, contoured, and highlighted to perfection. Some products to help you achieve this look are the KKW Beauty Crème Contour Stick, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow Highlighter, and the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer. To help achieve Ariana Grande’s signature bronzed look, be sure to follow YouTuber Brooke Lynn’s tutorial below.

Her Eye Makeup

Most of Ariana Grande’s eye looks can be achieved with a neutral or warm-toned eyeshadow palette and liquid or gel eyeliner. A good neutral palette is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette, and the Tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for warm tones. The Maybelline Eyestudio Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil is a great gel pencil, and the NYX Epic Ink Eyeliner is the perfect liquid eyeliner.

Her Lips

Ariana Grande is usually photographed in a nude or pinky nude lipgloss or lipstick. For lipgloss, the Maybelline Lifter Gloss in “Stone” is the perfect nude, and the Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream in “White Russian” is the perfect pinky nude. For lipstick the KKW Beauty Nude Crème Lipstick has a beautiful range of nude and pinky nude shades to match your complexion. 

Closing Thoughts

Whether you know every lyric by heart or only know Ariana Grande from what you see on Twitter or on TikTok (like her 1960s makeup!) her adorable signature hair and makeup looks are achievable for anyone.
