Get to know the exact beauty products Olivia Rodrigo wore at the 2023 VMAs
The 2023 Video Music Awards have come and gone, making now the perfect time to do a little rewind on all the beauty details seen at the famed ceremony. Of course, the night served as an occasional moment for the classic award glamour. Take a cue from Selena Gomez’s smoky eyes and Demi Lovato’s kohl-rimmed gaze, but that’s not to say that minimalism hasn’t made a memorable impact. As for the standout entry? Olivia Rodrigo whose red lip look proved that the right swipe is enough to make a big statement.
The artist donned two noteworthy looks that both equally deserved recognition. On the pink carpet, she wore a custom Ludovic de Saint Sernin gown made of 150,000 Swarovski crystals. Her ensemble was complemented with a sleek blowout by Clayton Hawkins and a soft glam by Nina Park. Later on, she made a switch to a red two-piece custom piece from Sandy Liang and a bold red lip.
On her signature eye makeup
Olivia Rodrigo’s signature black eyeliner is undeniably a beauty favorite. But the question remains: what is the secret behind her budge-proof eye makeup? Nina Park might have the answer. In a post, she revealed that she used the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and Laguna Quad Eyeshadow to dress her naked lids. Meanwhile, the makeup artist reached for the brand’s Climax Liquid Eyeliner and Climax Mascara Explicit in Black for the finishing touches.

Nina Park unveiled that she achieved the artist’s second-skin-like base with the use of the NARS Light Reflection Foundation. As for her cheeks? Park revealed that she layered three different blush formulas — Afterglow Liquid Blush in Orgasm, Blush in Orgasm X, and The Multiple in Copacabana. Elsewhere, she completed the look with the swipe of the same brand’s Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick in 200 Breathless and Powermatte High-Intensity Lip Pencil in 180 Walkyrie.
On her performance look
Olivia Rodrigo’s red lipstick is definitely the focus of her second look. Working with the same base, Nina Park made a subtle switch to the brand’s The Multiple in Maui and Laguna Bronzing Powder in Laguna 02 for the cheeks. As for her lips? Her signature red lip look is courtesy of not just one, but four lip products: NARS’ Powermatte High-Intensity Lip Pencil in 185 Cruella, Powermatte Lip Pigment in Don’t Stop, Precision Lip Liner in Porquerolles, and Afterglow Lip Shine in Triple X.
