If you spent Sunday night tuning into Super Bowl 51, then you probably don't need us to tell you that Lady Gaga nailed her Halftime Show performance. And while high-flying tricks and plenty of pyrotechnics weren't even enough to overshadow the pop star's set, we couldn't help but steal more than a few glances at the glittery makeup look that served as a perfect complement to Gaga's even more glittery Versace leotards.

Gaga's makeup artist Sarah Tanno was inspired by her client's dynamite career, and for Gaga's most explosive appearance yet (literally) sought to take her beauty look to new heights. "I wanted her to be able to look at this 10 years from now and have it feel timeless," said Tanno via press release. Beginning by swiping Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop Stick in Au Revoir, a soft pewter shimmer, Tanno then defined the eye with a creamy pencil liner in a shade of dark violet to add definition while keeping things in the same color family. Next, a series of darker shades of purple served as contrast to softer lavenders and pink shades used from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye Con palettes in The Tease, The Lover and About Last Night.

And because no Lady Gaga makeup look would be complete without her signature heavy cat-eye, Tanno glided a pure onyx pencil all along the lash line to create the winged shape before sealing it with a heavy dose of liquid liner. Several coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara on the top lashes and editor-favorite Feather Noir Mascara along the bottom lashes completed the look.

As for the red lip seen from the very top of NRG Stadium? Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Dashing, topped with a fuchsia gloss. And that, friends, is a touchdown look if we ever saw one.
