Miley Cyrus released the music video for her new song, "Midnight Sky," on August 14.

Now, the singer is shining the spotlight on fans who have re-created the makeup looks she featured in her video, which marks her first single of 2020.

Makeup artist Janice Daoud, who did Cyrus' look for "Midnight Sky," recently shared a post on Instagram showing how she achieved the star's glittery purple eye shadow and bright red lip.

Daoud also credited hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, who brought Cyrus' shaggy blonde mullet to life; as well as the star's stylist, Bradley Kenneth.

Instagram users responded to Daoud's post, with many commenting on the star's hair and asking for details on her makeup.


"I'm obsessed with her hair," one user wrote.

"You've got to give us the deets on this makeup, please," another commented.

Over the weekend, Cyrus re-shared via her Instagram story a number of looks created by fans.

She spotlighted user @hollyjademua, who created a "Midnight Sky"-inspired makeup look featuring a bright-red lip color and vibrant purple eye shadow.

Jade shared that she used a MAC cosmetics lipstick in "Russian Red," which retails for $19 at the time of writing.


Another creator Cyrus recognized was @caracavalli, who posted a video of a full re-creation tutorial, featuring a mullet wig and bodysuit similar to the ones Cyrus featured in her video.

"The music video was just full of fashion that was edgy and powerful, but still done in a strong feminine way that really spoke to me," Cavalli told Insider.

"It was surreal getting posted on her Insta story! Drag artists more often than not aren't as celebrated by mainstream artists, but Miley is the complete opposite and has always been a huge proponent of LGBTQ+ talent," they added.

Cyrus also re-shared a creation from Instagram user @jmdelore, who emulated the star's lip color and eye makeup — and even wore blue contact lenses to match Cyrus' eyes.
