How the Hell Is Lizzo Operating at the 2022 Met Gala With Her Metallic Corkscrew Nails?


When Lizzo and her beauty team work together, you know the pop star is being painted, styled and sculpted into an adorable look. Her team consists of hairstylist Shelby Swain, makeup artist Alexx Mayo and nail artist Eri Ishizu, and they all never fail to create eye-catching beauty moments that we can’t get enough of.

Take Lizzo’s pretty pink birthday photoshoot the trio collaborated on. The singer-songwriter emerged from a giant cake with a massive pink bouffant and matching eye and lip makeup – the extraness of the monochromatic look felt like a match made in heaven for the feisty star.

Lizzo and her team didn’t skimp on the drama for the 2022 Met Gala, leaning into dark lips, finger waves and long corkscrew-shaped nails for the gilded glamor theme. She walked the red carpet in a structured black dress with a massive black jacket with gold floral appliqués. Mayo kept Lizzo’s eye makeup neutral with a smoky incised crease and used Charlotte Tilbury products. He dusted an orange blush on her cheeks and swiped a deep burgundy matte pigment on her lips.

Lizzo’s hair was full of texture, volume and sleek finger waves. Swain styled her hair in greased finger waves, stopping about a quarter of her head. The rest of her hair flowed around her in undefined curls that have just the right amount of frizz. A few thin strands of hair have been looped and looped around her hairline for some light baby hair.

The last part of the look were these epic nails. Those dark nails looked longer than a tube of lipstick. It’s amazing how Ishizu filed Lizzo’s nails into the corkscrew shape and we can only imagine how long it took. After sculpting the shape, she painted the abstract nails in Black Onyx with Opis GelColor. Although most of the nail looks black, the corkscrew part had a golden hue that complemented her entire black and gold ensemble.
