Lizzo's Makeup at the 2019 Met Gala
"This was really a dream come true for all of us," Mayo said, pointing out that Lizzo's entire look was inspired by Shirley MacLaine's character in 1964's What a Way to Go.
"Again, we thought about that old Hollywood . . . [Lizzo] told me she had never worn pink eyeshadow until me. So I really opened up her mind to the idea of what a pink eye shadow could be and also how it could be really flattering and fun. We did a scene where we converted a photograph into black and white, and the interesting thing is that in black and white you can't tell obviously what the colours are, and it still gives you that remanence of what a black and white photo from that time would be like in the '30s."
