Ariana Grande rocked her signature look at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, confidently posing on the pink carpet with her long locks pulled into a half-up, half-down ponytail. Get all the details on her award show beauty, and let us know what you think of her look!
Ariana Grande, 22, stuck to the beauty look she knows best at the Billboard Music Awards on May 22 in Las Vegas. The petite singer wore a figure-hugging black and blue gown with cutouts and a thigh-high slit, paired with her favorite beauty combo — her ponytail and cat eye makeup.
Before she took to the stage, Ari hit the pink carpet with her signature beauty look. Never one to shy away from her bronzed skin, black cat eye and matte nude lip makeup, lately, Ariana has been switching up her hair looks, leaving us wondering what she would come up with for the BBMAs.
Going blonde for her “Focus” video, and wearing her dark hair completely loose and styled in volumized curls for her “Dangerous Woman” music video, Ariana has definitely been experimenting in the hair department. Ari was even spotted bringing the space buns back by wearing her hair up in double buns on the side of her head. For the BBMAs, Ari went back to her basics with her slicked back half ponytail hairstyle that will always be her go-to.
Likewise, Daniel Chinchilla stuck with Ariana’s favorite makeup look for the big show. Keeping her skin clean, Daniel created the perfect cat eye by keeping the liner as close to her lash line as possible and slowly building it up to control just how thick the lines would be. To complete her look, Daniel added a nude matte lip.
In addition to her BBMAs performance of “Into You,” it was an exciting week for Ariana, whose album, Dangerous Woman, finally arrived on May 20. The singer had seemingly been teasing her third album for what seemed like forever, revealing that a tour will be on the way, too. “It’s been the most positive reaction to anything I’ve put out,” Ariana told E! News on the red carpet about her new album, barely able to contain her excitement. Stream Ariana’s music completely ad-free by signing up for a free Prime Music trial!
