With a host of accolades under her belt — including the Grammys’ 2019 Album of the Year award — country singer Kacey Musgraves clearly settles for nothing less than the best. That principle seems to apply to her makeup as well. Musgraves has been spotted in products from Pat McGrath Labs, the eponymous line from the iconic makeup artist, on occasions from the 2019 Met Gala to a recent appearance on The Late Late Show. In her look for the show, Musgraves sported a shimmering turquoise cat eye using McGrath’s Eye Ecstasy Palette in Subversive — and you can shop a mini version for just $28 at Sephora.

Makeup artist Moani Lee used the palette’s blue-hued Lapis Luxury shade to accent Musgraves’s otherwise neutral-toned eyeshadow. To keep the shock of color at the center of attention, Lee paired the shadow with soft peach blush, a healthy dose of highlighter, and creamy taupe lipstick. Musgraves topped it all off with her signature black waves and an iridescent dress that brought her “Spacey Kacey” alter ego to life. The end result was an ethereal look plucked straight from our NYE dreams.

Whether you feel compelled to give Musgraves’s full glam look a whirl for New Year’s Eve or just want to get your hands on a Pat McGrath product, the mini Eye Ecstasy Palette’s $28 price tag promises low risk and high return. It’s available in two shade ranges, both of which feature five unique shadows. Subversive, used on Musgraves, includes candy-colored pigments of purple, pink, blue, and yellow-gold, while Sublime boasts subdued shades of bronze, platinum, pale gold, and peach. No matter which you choose, you’re bound to agree with the 20,000 Sephora shoppers who pressed “Love” on the palette; after all, McGrath has a reputation for creating easy-to-blend eyeshadows with otherworldly color payoff.
