ICYMI, Lizzo was transformed into a stunning Greek goddess for the music video accompanying her newly released, Cardi B-assisted single, "Rumors." Of course, she didn't do it all on her own. In the three-minute music video, the singer wears smoky black-and-gold eye makeup, along with bleached eyebrows and gold highlighter swept along her nose and cheekbones. When creating the looks, Lizzo's go-to makeup artist Alexx Mayo said that his goal was to focus on giving her a glowy complexion.

"As soon as I knew the setting for the music video, I immediately wanted to transform Lizzo into an out-of-this-world goddess from another time," he said. "Maybe it's the past, maybe it's the future. I wanted her complexion to be as if her skin was made of 24k gold. I used strategic highlighting to amplify a second skin that looked like metal."

To accomplish this gilded glow, Mayo relied on several Charlotte Tilbury products like the Instant Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir ($80), a light serum meant to hydrate the skin and give it a plumper appearance; the Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation ($44), a sweat-proof, transfer-resistant formula that gives the skin a flawless finish; the Beauty Light Wand ($38), a long-lasting, velvety highlighter; and the Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray ($35), among plenty of others.

Read ahead to check out a few behind-the-scenes photos showing how the looks came together, and if you haven't already, watch the "Rumors" video to see the final looks.
