Miley Cyrus’ makeup look has been the beauty inspiration on everyone’s lips since her award-winning appearance at the 2024 Grammy Awards. Her talented MUA, James Kaliardos, turned to Pat McGrath to bring his glitzy ‘golden goddess’ vision to life, as Miley quickly became the showstopper at the event. 

Looking to recreate the look yourself from home? We’re rounded up the exact beauty products that James used to make her iconic look, so you don’t have to! Shop the look below... 


If you want to achieve Miley’s glowy, golden look, then good skin prep is a must! James starts by setting the 31-year-old performer’s complexion with Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Primer,a silky, weightless-feel formula that provides a semi-matte, soft-focus finish. The second-skin formula helps to enhance the longevity and wear of her makeup masterpiece, making Miley to be award-winning ready and leaving a flawless-looking canvas.


To ensure a durable base that’s fit for an all-out performance, you’ll need a long-wear foundation that offers a satin finish that won’t compromise on your glow.James uses Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundationto create a soft-focus finish that stays put for up to 12-hours of wear.Tested both backstage and under the spotlight, Miley wears shade 'Light 7’ in the sheer-to-medium coverage foundation.  

Next, James applies the creamy and featherlight Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Concealer in shade ‘Light 4’ to Miley’s complexion,working to illuminate and visibly minimise imperfection while blurring the look of blemishes and brightening the under-eye. 

Don’t forget to set and perfect your base using the Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Setting Powder, to lock your look in place and deliver a blurring, velvety finish to the skin. 


Carving her cheekbones like she carves her way through the music industry, Miley’s sculpted complexion is a want, not a need! James pairs the Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Divine Bronzer with the Pat McGrath Labs Divine Blush Legendary Glow Colour Balm, in shades ‘Fleurotique and Forbidden Fleur’, to establish contrast and definition on the skin, offering a flushed, radiant and dewy finish. 

Glazing the skin with a crystal-like glow, Kaliardos gives the star’s cheeks that extra pop with the Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Sublime Skin Highlighter in shade ‘Nude Opal’, illuminating her complexion with an ethereal beam. The buttery gel-powder highlighter grants a soft-focus glow over the cheekbones, cupid’s bow and high points of the face. 


A feast for the eyes, recreate the star’s eye-catching lid look by working the neutral, velvety matte hue ‘Velouria’ into the crease of your lid. Blend with soft sweeps using Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VII: Divine Rose I Palette, then, add subtle shimmer to the inner corner of your eye using the ultra-sparkly ‘Refined Gold 002’ pigment. 

Next, Kaliardos takes the Pat McGrath Labs Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Xtreme Black’ and paints the lash line, flicking upwards to create the illusion of lifted lids. Then, volumise and lengthen lashes with Pat McGrath Labs Dark Star Mascara also in ‘Xtreme Black’. 


James finishes Miley’s starstruck look by defining her lips with the budge-proof and richly pigmented Pat McGrath Labs Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil, in the shade ‘Nude Venus’. Lastly, he goes in with the luxe Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstickin ‘Honey Haze’ that effortlessly glides across the lips, complete with a comfortable, long-wear texture that leaves Miley ready to hit the red carpet.

Ever since I discovered makeup and tutorials from a young age, I have been completely in love! Makeup, for me, is more than just a look - it’s a feeling. I am obsessed with the process of applying my makeup, bringing a look together and feeling a whole new level of confidence. My makeup routines and looks have been on a transformative journey over the years but now my most favourite go-to look is glowy, natural and sun-kissed. The Iconic London Radiance Booster is the ultimate game-changer and a makeup must-have!
