BET Awards 2014 Beauty Roundup

Last night was the annual BET Awards, which are definitely in my top 3 awards of the year, especially in terms of hair and makeup!

So here are my favourite beauty looks of the evening, in no particular order:

First up, Amber Rose. I’m such an Rosebud. I love this woman. Her look is amazing and she is such a good mother and is so supportive of Wiz. So she is always in my favourite looks of any award show she attends. Furthermore her makeup artist, Priscilla Ono, is perhaps my fave MUA of all time. Check out her gorgeous look below:

I love the natural golden glow on her eyes with the subtle pink sheen to the lips. Plus those eyebrows are on POINT! Perfect, Muva.

Next up, Paris Hilton. I know, but it isn’t about her, it’s all about her makeup artist, Etienne Ortega. His glam on Paris is flawless.

The extra dark smokey eye with the nude lip compliments her hair and skin perfectly. He makes her look classy, which is pretty impressive. And I love the pink blusher. Pink blush is so underrated these days because everyone is feeling the peachy tones, but I still rep the pink.

This next woman has received a lot of flack recently for being asked to play Aliyah in a biopic about the singer’s life. Due to the hate, she turned the part down. I think the negativity was unnecessary because it was not her fault she was asked. People just don’t want this movie to happen but it was unfair to take it out on her. It is Zendaya Coleman.


Unfortunately I could not find a close up of her face for the makeup, but I love this hair. As my dolls know, I am big into braids so anyone braided up gets my approval!

This next girl is one to watch. Tinashe.

She’s a singer and performed her single ‘2 on’ at the show. She also looks fantastic with her caramel curls and super feline eye liner. It’s lined right into the inner corners to accentuate the almond shape of her eyes. So cute.

Next is cutie Karrueche. I personally preferred her overall look from the award’s Pre Dinner, but she still looked cute last night.

The loose curls are very youthful and pretty, and I like the lined eyes with the nude lips, but personally I think this look from the Pre Dinner wins:

The sleek hair looks so much more grown up and less Disney. Plus the major eyelashes and super bronzed skin are killer. I love the dab of highlighter in the inner corners of the eyes. It’s a great trick for looking more awake. Beautiful.

Pia Mia Perez is some singer/songwriter/actress/model but probably more Instagram famous than actually famous.  Her looks are always so fire. She’s definitely my hairspiration and she looked fantastic last night.

She is just so cool. I LOVE the hair with the white bandanna tied, plus the dark red lips with her skin tone is perfection. The has this gorgeous golden glow going on which is TO DIE.

Her MUA, Arianna Garcia, used Anastasia Beverley Hills on her brows and the lashes are Flutter Lashes Inc. I love the top and bottom false lashes look. Later on in the evening she applied an orangey lipstick to match her dress and it looked great.

Actress Raven Goodwin also looked fierce last night.

Another girl rocking the orange lips. And that eye makeup is amazing. I love the eyeshadow in the outer edge of the lid going up to the brow bone, used to give a more feline shape to the eyes. Plus her skin is just glowing.

Last but not least, Adrienne Bailon looking hella elegant:

Maybe the hair is just a little too scraped back for my taste, it just looks a bit severe with the already OTT makeup. This makeup would have worked better with a more relaxed ‘do. She’s got the eyes lined and lashed up to the nines and the orangey/red lips that are so on trend. Even though I am not a big fan of matte skin, it does look great  on her.

I recommend watching the awards, if only just for Chris Rock’s jokes.
