She's a triple threat, set to take the world by storm and definitely our girl crush. Crooning actress and star of Empire, Serayah McNeil, has got it all. At the 2015 American Music Awards she stunned in neutral shimmery makeup that's perfect for the upcoming Holiday season. The best part? Her makeup artist Brandy Allen used drugstore beauty brand, Shea Moisture to create the look!

Celebrity makeup artist, Brandy Allen, based Serayah's lids with the earth tones from Shea Moisture Nude Day Palette in Rich Earth. For an added touch of shimmer, she pressed the champagne shimmer shadow into the center of Serayah's lid using a damp brush to give the look depth.
