ESC: Priv x E!ssentials Grammy Awards

Lana Del Rey's beauty is an extension of her music, and that's why it's genius.

Since the debut of "Video Games" in 2011, the singer's stylized cinematic voice and songs references to the '50s and '60s have been personified with the use of makeup. Her retro style, which includes cat-eye makeup and Americana-influenced hairstyles, standout on the red carpet with its romantic notes and glamour. It's her signature, and like her sound, it's remained consistent and unique.

This year, in honor of her nomination for Best Pop Album of the Year, the singer appeared on the Grammy Awards 2018 red carpet with her signature look. Like her album Lust for Life's nostalgic references (Watch: "Lust for Life" and "Love"), she sported her classic Hollywood style with an elongated cat-eye and dewy makeup. She kept her hair simple, with a middle part and slightly bumped ends. Then, she topped off her beauty with a Gucci halo-inspired crown, unofficially crowning herself the "Queen of Retro."

The elongated eyeliner with rose-tinted eyeshadow and lipsticks pair well with the glamour of the red carpet. It's also classic, bringing a glamorous and feminine flair to any outfit, at any event. It's a go-to for the star, and for anyone else that enjoys an easy, sultry beauty look.
