Yummy411: Alicia Keys Makeup at the BET Awards Show!

Just about all of the celebs that came out for the BET Awards show looked stunning with flawless makeup and awesome wardrobes. One person that I keep on my radar at all times is Alicia Keys. With natural, radiant beauty, makeup on her is easy, I'm sure. However, it's still nice to know what products her makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff used in hopes of being as beautiful as A. Keys!
Ashunta tells us:

"We were channeling Carrie from Sex & the City from head to toe. I wanted clean yet a touch of funk to go with the downtown soho chic look.

· I used Cover Girl Queen Collection Mineral Bronzer (*more on this to come!*) to enrich her naturally tan skin and the mineral pressed powder to set her makeup.

· Dior Pro Cheeks in Hip Peach

· Giorgio Armani Fluid Shine #3

· I added a little dazzle in her eyes with Shu Uemura Luxe Black False lashes with Urban Decay glitter eyeliner in Metal Head for eye poppin' fun

· Cover Girl Volume Exact Mascara in Black because the brush is so amazing it gets each and every lash.

· Her body was adorned with Makeup Forever Diamond Cream in Gold"
Thanks Samara!!
