Serena Williams absolutely stole the red carpet during her first post-baby appearance Monday night at the 2017 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards. The tennis phenom showed off her serious snap back game and delivered a glam slay worthy of its own award, including a sculpted ponytail coifed by Vernon Francois and a black and gold lace Versace mini.

While her dress may be out of our budget range, thankfully her makeup beat is not! Celeb makeup artist Renny Vasquez shared that he used one of our fave drugstore brands, Black/Opal, to craft her striking beauty beat.

“Knowing this was her first red carpet appearance since giving birth, I wanted to make sure she felt, and looked, simply amazing,” said Renny. And, of course, we needed all the details. Renny shared all the products he used, along with tips for recreating the look at home for out next big night out.

Starting on Serena’s cleansed and moisturized face, Renny first applied Black Opal’s True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation ($10.95). Starting at the center of her face, he created a smooth even finish by blended outward with fingers and finishing up with a moist blending sponge.

Next, he used the brand’s True Color Skin Perfecting Stick Foundation ($9.95) in Hazelnut and Heavenly Honey to highlight under her eyes, forehead and cupid’s bow and in Ebony Brown to contour her cheekbones. To set her makeup, Renny lightly dusted Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Loose Powder ($9.99)all over her face, with an extra layer to her T-zone area.

And, because every girl needs a bit of splurge, he finished off her glam look with deep lip using Pat McGrath’s Matte Trance lipstick ($38) in McMenamy. Slay!
