- Lady Gaga, 31, wears Swarovski crystals on her eyes and lips during her Joanne World Tour concerts
- The singer's make-up artist Sarah Tanno gave fans a peek at her twinkling tour beauty looks ahead of the first show last week
- Femail looks at back at more celebrities who have incorporated extravagant materials like crystals and diamonds into their beauty looks, including Madonna
Lady Gaga kicked off her Joanne World Tour last week in Vancouver decked out in 550,000 Swarovski crystals.
The sparkling gems dotted her bodysuits, gowns, jackets, hats, instruments and even her make-up.
Close-up images of the superstar's tour beauty looks posted on Instagram reveal that make-up artist Sarah Tanno is using the crystals as a finishing touch atop silver glitter shadow on the eyes and red lipstick on the lips.
Sarah previously used the stones to construct a dazzling eye mask for the singer's Super Bowl performance in February. The removable piece enabled her to switch up her make-up look in between songs.

Lady Gaga is far from the first to shine in jewel-encrusted beauty looks.
Madonna famously wore diamond-studded false eyelashes during her Confessions Tour in the mid-aughts and Kelly Osbourne was the talk of the town in 2013 for hitting the red carpet with a glitzy manicure worth one million dollars.
Below, we remember those moments and more.
GIGI HADID'S CHROME AND CRYSTAL MANICURE
On-theme: Gigi Hadid's crystal and chrome manicure matched her and her boyfriend Zayn Malik's (left) robot-like ensembles at the 2016 Met Gala
Inspired by the evening's Manus x Machina theme, Gigi Hadid, 22, channeled a chic robot at the 2016 Met Gala.
The model wore a glitzy Tommy Hilfiger gown and silver accessories and rounded out the look with custom chrome press-on KISS nails that featured crystals underneath each tip.
According to the brand, the manicure cost $2,000.
JANELLE MONAE'S $45,000 HEADBAND
A winner's crown: Janelle Monae, 31, wore a $45,000 Chanel headband to accept the honor for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the SAG Awards
Janelle Monae stole the red carpet on more than one occasion during awards season earlier this year thanks to accessorized looks created by hairstylist Nikki Nelms.
Among the inventive items the hair pro used to embellish Janelle's updos were safety pins, pearls and leather cord.
One of our favorite looks was the one Nikki created for Janelle ahead of the SAG Awards in January, when she sourced accessories not from the craft store, but from Chanel.
The Hidden Figures actress wore the same fabric flowers seen on her Chanel gown in her hair, along with an 18 karat white gold headband from the fashion house that retails for $45,000.
KELLY OSBOURNE'S QUARTER MILLION AND MILLION-DOLLAR MANICURES
Nail bling: Kelly Osbourne, 32, wore black diamond nail polish from Azature worth $250,000 at the 2012 Emmy Awards
She looked like a million bucks: A year later, Kelly got an even more expensive manicure from the brand that featured white diamonds
Kelly Osbourne was criticized for flaunting her wealth after she arrived at the 2012 Emmy Awards with a $250,000 black diamond manicure (the polish was designed by luxury jeweler Azature).
The former Fashion Police host was quick to defend the treatment on Twitter: 'I see your point, but it was a once in a lifetime experience. No I did not pay for it. I was just lucky enough to be the one that got picked to wear it.'
Clearly, the controversy didn't faze her because she got another manicure from the brand a year later, but this time, it was worth a million dollars.
She took to Instagram to reveal that if she helped get the bottle of white diamond-infused nail polish sold, a large portion of the proceeds would be donated to medical foundations close to her heart.
MAKE-UP ARTIST VLADA HAGGERTY'S $26,500 LIP ART
Breaking records: Make-up artist Vlada Haggerty broke a world record when she created the most expensive lip look ever in March
Pricey pout: Vlada used over 80 diamonds worth $26,500 and Smashbox lipstick to achieve the lip art
Make-up artist Vlada Haggerty, known for her stunning lip art creations, was tapped by Smashbox Cosmetics this spring to be the brand's Lip Editor-in-Chief.
For her first project in the role, Vlada teamed up with jewelry designer Zoe Chicco to break the world record for 'The Most Valuable Lip Art'.
She achieved the feat by adhering more than 80 diamonds valued at $26,500 to a model's top lip.
MADONNA'S DIAMOND EYELASHES
Material girl: Madonna, 58, reignited the false lash trend when she wore a diamond-encrusted mink pair on tour in 2006
Make-up artist and former Shu Uemura artistic director Gina Brooke made Madonna's eyes sparkle for her Confession Tour concerts in 2006 by adhering diamonds to mink false lashes.
There was such a demand for the look that Shu Uemura made them available to the masses for a cool $10,000 a pair.
RITA ORA'S $56,000 MANICURE
How she does: A manicure that featured diamond nail polish, diamond spider decals and bow-shaped ruby gems cost Rita Ora, 26, $56,000 in 2014
To get Rita Ora ready for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, celebrity manicurist Barbara Windsor reached for Azature Black Diamond Nail Lacquer - the same pricey polish that Kelly Osbourne made headlines for, but in red.
As a nod to Black Widow, Rita's hit song at the time, Barbara added nail art in the form of hand-crafted diamond spiders and ruby bows. The flashy manicure was worth $56,000.
