Ten years ago, Demi Lovato tweeted that she'd one day sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. That came true at Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, and Lovato truly delivered. It was impossible to watch her performance without getting chills.

What Lovato didn't prepare everyone for was the glam she brought to her big moment on the football field. She wore an all-white suit that allowed her stunning makeup to really shine through. Curious to know which products she used? Celebrity makeup artist Jill Powell gave a complete breakdown of everything she used to achieve the singer's beauty look.

Lovato's eyes stood out thanks to a dramatic strip lash, Eyelure Luxe Cashmere Lashes in #8 (Buy It, $15, ulta.com), and a medley of Armani eyeshadows and eyeliners.

Powell also used a noteworthy technique to give Lovato a natural-looking contour: She layered on foundations in multiple shades. "I always create dimension on the skin with multiple foundations," Powell wrote in an Instagram post. "I never like the skin to look flat, but try to re-create natural contours and dimension by using multiple shades."

For Lovato's skin tone, Powell went with Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation (Buy It, $64, sephora.com) in shades 7.5 and 9. For anyone who wants to try out her technique, Powell fully explained her multi-foundation method in a previous YouTube video.

Lovato's waist-length mermaid waves also deserve some recognition. Hairstylist Paul Norton relied on IGK styling products and shared the full lineup on Instagram. It included IGK best-sellers like Beach Club (Buy It, $29, ulta.com), a salt-free texturizing spray, and Thirsty Girl (Buy It, $28, sephora.com), a coconut milk leave-in conditioner.

Lovato has been plotting her Super Bowl performance for at least a decade and it seems to have paid off. She not only nailed the performance, but she also looked like a million bucks in the process.
