Alicia Keys is certainly on fire. Not only does she have a fabulous album out, but she also knows how to look cool while rocking both the best in fashion and beauty looks. Her recent appearance at President Barack Obama's Public Inaugural Ball was ultra glamorous, and ladies everywhere should try the look out for their next big event.
Smooth the skin
Keys' best feature might be her complexion, since the crooner's skin always looks smooth and moisturized. To achieve a similar goddess glow, start by applying a light foundation on your face and then swipe on a powder bronzer to get a sun-kissed complexion.
When your skin is spectacular, move on to your eye makeup. Keys stole the show thanks to a dewy peach-colored eyeshadow on her top lids to the crease lines. You can either find a similar product, or take an existing eyeshadow and mix it with a drop of Vaseline to create your own creamy version. Next, grab a dark brown hue and apply it on the crease line on the top lids and along the bottom lash lines. Then swipe on a thin line of black liner on the top lash lines. Finish the eyes with a few coats of mascara.
Light on the lips
Since Keys was performing in front of some major people, she kept her lips simple. A touch of light brown lipstick with a top coat of clear gloss worked perfectly to enhance her pout in a subtle way.
