Ariana Grande isn’t exactly known for being relatable. With the kind of fame that affords her personal makeup artists and hairstylists, and the kind of fortune that makes buying six of her besties diamond rings no biggie, it isn’t easy to listen to her songs and consistently connect.
The song, which dropped at midnight along with the rest of the album, is basically about making up with a boyfriend and it not being an immediately regrettable decision (again, can’t relate!). On the track, she sings, “No eyeliner on, but looking at you is the fix / Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit.”
Back in January, Grande posted a video of the makeup and highlighter haul that Fenty Beauty had sent her, to which the brand replied on Twitter: “We’re gonna need you to drop that makeup tutorial sis!”

And to that, Grande wrote: “Wait til u hear ‘Make Up.'”

And now here we are. Fans, as expected, loved the mention.
“No eyeliner on, but looking at you is the fix
Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit” we had to stan!!!

Fenty Beauty was pretty stoked about it too, with the company writing on Twitter: “When @ArianaGrande said ‘Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit’ on ‘Make Up’ y’all KNOW we felt that.”
