All eyes were on Lorde last night at the 2014 Grammy Awards, where the up-and-coming singer took home honors for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year -- all while wearing an edgy deep plum lip, at that! "We wanted to keep the look fresh and radiant," says the star's makeup artist Amber Dreadon. "Modern, a bit boyish, and darkly cool with a lip focus."

After creating a flawless canvas and adding subtle definition around the eye area, Dreadon picked up MAC's Lip Pencil in Vino ($15; maccosmetics.com) to trace Lorde's pout. She then mixed the dark aubergine lipstick in Cyber with MAC's recently-revamped Heroine shade ($15 each; maccosmetics.com) to create a custom indigo color. Since purple was a hue once reserved exclusively for queens, kings, and other high-ranking officials, we think the look is a perfect nod to the star's breakout single, while complementing both her quirky personality and unconventional dress choices. But Lorde isn't the only star who rocked a wine lip last night! Following her steamy performance with Jay-Z, Beyoncé donned a gorgeous bordeaux hue, which contrasted beautifully against her white Michael Costello gown.
