Usher’s star-studded Super Bowl Halftime Show performance on Sunday, Feb. 11, was about 13-minutes long, and thanks to a viral Danessa Myricks Beauty product in particular, the R&B superstar and his dancers didn’t have to worry about oily skin while breaking a sweat.

Makeup artist Lola Okanlawon worked with the eight-time Grammy Award-winning artist, while glam guru Jenn Hanching made up Usher’s backup dancers. Both women used products by the SI Lifestyle-beloved brand on their respective clients, including the Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder ($36).

The cream formula of the product provides light coverage that visibly reduces skin texture while keeping oil at bay—something that was obviously crucial while performing for a record 123.4 million viewers. While Okanlawon used shades 8.5 and 9 on Usher, the product is available in over a dozen shades, so you’ll likely have no trouble finding one to match your natural skin tone.

Following the Big Game, Okanlawon shared a pic of her celebrity client on Instagram on Monday. Myricks reposted the pic, along with a message of gratitude.

“I AM SHAKING! Yesterday @lolasbeautymark used Blurring Balm Powder on @usher during one of the most iconic halftime shows ever!” she wrote. “I am so grateful to you, Lola; your artistry and beautiful spirit inspire me.”
