You would never guess (just by looking at it) that Bella Hadid's neutral 2016 Grammys makeup look took 17 products to create. Yes, you heard right: 17.

Celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo said the "inspiration for Bella's makeup look was a modern, bronzed Italian sexbomb in La Dolce Vita." To that we'd say mission accomplished considering her face was a favorite, but do you really need that many products to achieve the look? The below tutorial says yes, but an easier adaption is certainly possible.

Read on for a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this extensive yet subtle look. 

Step 1: Vincent prepped her skin with Sephora Collection Honey Face Mask followed by Sephora Collection Green Tea Eye Mask. Then followed those up with Sephora Collection Liquid Moisturizing Skin Concentrate and Sephora Collection Instant Moisturizer for light moisture before he applied any makeup.

Step 2: He took Sephora Collection 8 HR Mattifying Compact Foundation and buffed it into her skin with a foundation brush for a matte finish.

Step 3: He used Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette to highlight Bella's skin and warm up her complexion. He mixed Subconscious and Shadowplay and applied them under Bella's cheekbones, jawline, and around her eyes to define her face shape.

Step 4: From the same palette, he used Levitation to brighten her cheekbones. For a bronzy flush of color, he applied Sephora Collection MicroSmooth Baked Blush Duo in 01 Tangerine Tease on the apples of her cheeks and a little on her eyelids to warm up the look.

Step 5: For the eyes, he used Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette to create a warm taupe-brown eye color. Liberatus was used on the eyelid and under the eye then Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow in Hawaiian Beach on the inner part of the eyelids for a dose of sparkle.

Step 6: Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Thunderstruck was added to the inner corners of the eyes and brow bone for extra shine. To add more definition to the eyes, he lined the top of Bella's eyes with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.

Step 7: Now come the lashes! He curled Bella's lashes and used a generous coating of Sephora Collection The Mascara – Volume, Length & Definition to the top and then applied a set of Sephora Collection Luxe False Lashes in Plume for added volume.

Step 8: On the lips, he dabbed Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Thunderstruck on Bella's cupid's bow with a wet brush to define her lips. Then lined her lips with Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 01 The Nudest and filled in the whole lip with the color.

Step 9: Lastly, he applied Sephora Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care in 09 Iced Coffee for the perfect nude-rose lip to complete her look.
