BET Awards Makeup Showdown

Hello BH Beauties!

Did you get a chance to watch the BET awards this past Sunday? Between the #LionelRitchie fail and Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech, it was a crazy night of performances. Oh course, since we’re makeup addicts, we were focused on the red carpet beauties!

Here are some of our favorites:

Gabrielle Union! Can you believe she is 41? She looked stunning at the BET awards with gorgeous hair and radiant, dewy skin. Her brows were flawless and her eyes were lightly lined and finished with a full lash. Her lips were neutral and glossy, and her face had just the right amount of contouring. We love this simple, elegant look!

Actress Zendaya wore a similar look with a neutral peach lipstick and dark-lined eyes, heavy mascara, and perfect brows. Her skin looked gorgeous and sun-kissed and looked fabulous with her casual outfit.

Jennifer Hudson paired thick winged eyeliner and heavy mascara with a bright red lip, keeping the look simple so all attention was directed to her sexy new pixie cut!

Nicki Minaj – if you only remember her from the crazy colored wig days, you might not have recognized her at the BET awards with long, dark hair in tight curls. She kept the focus on her gorgeous hair by keeping her makeup neutral pairing defined brows, simple lined eyes and a glossy lip. To copy her look, don’t forget to use a highlighter to mimic her stunning cheekbones.

We’re not sure what’s going on between Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj, but we love Iggy’s bright pink lips (kind of like our pop cultured lipstick!), winged eye and shimmery eye makeup.

Kenya Moore paired a beautiful orange lip (try Sweet Mango) with tight-lined eyes and thick, full lashes. Her brows are also thick – another big trend we noticed at this year’s awards!

What was your favorite look at the BET awards this year?

Xoxo,

Jessica
