Ariana Grande left a lasting impression after meeting some devoted fans at Tuesday’s R.E.M. Beauty pop-up event in New York City.
A couple had asked the songstress, 30, to hand-draw a pair of hearts of them so they could get them tattooed as an homage to her song Tattooed Heart, featured on her 2013 debut studio album, Yours Truly.
The actress recently celebrated the album’s 10th anniversary and revealed she had changed the original cover art due to the constant ‘bullying.’
One of her loyal fans, Annie Zambrano, uploaded multiple clips sharing the once-in-a-lifetime experience of meeting the 7 Rings hitmaker with her boyfriend.
Afterward, she posted photos to Twitter showing her new arm ink and her partner’s new tattoo above his knee.
In a clip shared to TikTok, she revealed she did not expect the R.E.M. Beauty founder to be at the Sweetener Ice Cream Shoppe — an event to celebrate the launch of her new foundation range.
She also gushed over the former Nickelodeon actress and called her ‘the absolute sweetest person ever.’
She also said she ‘started crying’ after Grande surprised them and introduced herself personally in a humble manner.
In response, she said Grande took off the apron she wore to give to her.
She also shared several self-portraits that they took with the two-time Grammy winner as they were one of the first four lucky fans at the event.
On the same day, Grande took to her brand’s official Instagram account to share photos and clips from the event, providing shade matching, complimentary ice cream, and exclusive merch.
She also posted a clip of herself popping up from behind the counter to surprise the fans above, greeting them warmly with hugs, and taking photos together.
She was seen sporting a limited edition brown crewneck for her pop-up event, but Grande had also posted photos of herself in a bright yellow ensemble before opening the ice cream shop.
She modeled a sleeveless, boxy crop top teamed with the matching A-line skirt in the snaps. She added inches to her height in a pair of brown leather boots.
She styled her platinum blonde tresses in a voluminous, high ponytail and rocked a pair of tan, retro sunglasses as she posed in front of a fridge full of ice cream.
For jewelry, she donned a pair of dangling pearl earrings and no other jewelry to showcase her vast collection of dainty tattoos.
She also sported ’90s-inspired makeup as she wore baby blue eyeshadow and a mauve pink lip.
She also shared a sweet clip of her mother, Joan, interacting with fans and working behind the counter to help scoop ice cream.
Recently, Grande purchased the makeup company she founded back from Forma Brands for $15 million.
She initially launched her cosmetics line on November 12, 2021, effectively expanding her business ventures following the success of her perfume line.
She announced the highly-anticipated Sweetener foundation — named after her same-name fourth studio album — on her social media.
The foundation was launched on August 24 and is now available at the official R.E.M. Beauty website, Ulta Beauty, and Sephora stores.
