Alicia Keys at the 2009 American Music Awards…

Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created a lovely yet slightly avant garde look for Alicia Keys at last night’s American Music Awards.  Her brows aren’t really filled in so it puts all the focus on her eyes and skin….and both were luminous.


“Alicia’s look was inspired by her hand beaded Armani Prive Gown in various shades of blue. I focused on golden glowing skin, beautiful blue and burgundy eyes, soft pink shimmery cheeks, full lashes and light pink lips. The look was pretty, regal and sexy. I also did a beautiful bronze body shimmer so Alicia’s skin glistened like she spent hours on a tropical beach.” ….says Ashunta:

Her must have products for this look are COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Light Bronze – its golden sparkly flecks truly make skin have a fabulous glow. Mary Kay’s lip gloss in Pink Diamonds perfectly set off the look in a soft and subtle way. Finally, for great lashes try Shu Uemura. I love their lashes because there’s sooo many to choose from so have fun with it.”

Stay Pretty!!
