Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande know the show must go on, and leading up to a bummer Memorial Day weekend, the pop stars dropped a pre-quarantine music video for their new collaboration 'Rain on Me' just last week. The video is a reminder of a world we once knew, full of partying, congregating in large groups, and (gasp!) touching, as Gaga and Grande come together at the end for a long hug.

Although we can't be united in the way the music video depicted, there's another thing bringing fans together: The standout beauty looks created by makeup artists Sarah Tanno and Michael Anthony. The white eyeliner worn by Gaga and Grande is being recreated across social media, with fans using quarantine to perfect the sharp wings and lines.

Tanno, the global artistry director at Haus Laboratories and Gaga's longtime MUA, is surprised the look has generated so much buzz. "I did not see that coming," she told ELLE.com over the phone. "I never think of the looks like they're going to go viral like that. I wake up every day to thousands of fans and people who love makeup that have recreated that look. Usually, they'll they love the ones with the spikes or the chains or the more interesting, the more kind of dangerous punk ones. But the white look has really been the star of the show."

Tanno and Anthony worked closely with the two singers to come up with a look that made sense for both of them. "Her and Ari bounced off of each other, talking about ideas and the glam, and they wanted to merge their worlds and beauty and the way that they are dressing," Tanno explains. "The wing is something that's just so truly iconic to Gaga. So we wanted to do it differently, and I used to love white eyeliner and the '90s. We didn't want [Ari and Gaga] to be completely matching. It was important that we brought Ari into Gaga's world a little bit with the makeup."

To achieve this merge, Anthony used the white liner to draw a hollow cat-eye shape, requested by Grande. "The floating white cat eyeliner look that so many people are celebrating and recreating was something that we came up with to be universally flattering and chic," he explains. "Ari has such creative energy and really knew what she wanted to try. She came with a moodboard and direction for what she was thinking."

Ahead, the MUAs break down the 'Rain on Me' makeup looks to recreate at home.
