Get The Look: Alicia Keys at the World Series…

jay-z-alicia-keysGame 2 of the World Series and the Yankees and the Phillies were raring to go.  But not before Alicia Keys knocked it out of the park with her gorgeous makeup look.  Sure she and Jay Z were performing their NYC anthem, Empire State of Mind as a tribute to New York and the Yankees.  Loads of people were there to see Jay, but it ended up that all eyes were on Ms. Keys who dazzled with Mary Kay makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created a glam look for the superstar which she achieved with the help of some favorite Mary Kay products.  Ashunta says, “The inspiration behind Alicia’s look was retro 1980s hip hop Harlem meets Brooklyn – when matching lip color to clothing color was very popular. The eyes were smoldering and the skin bronzed to accent the amazing lip color.

To create Alicia’s all-star look, Ashunta Sheriff used:

  • Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Bold Berry and Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powder in Dessert Sun to give Alicia’s cheeks a glowing, natural look
  • Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Pink Melon and Mary Kay NouriShine Lip Gloss in Pink Diamonds to attain the desired effect on the focal point of the entire look – Alicia’s lips
  • Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Raisin on Alicia’s eyes to help accentuate Alicia’s stunning features and natural beauty.  The overall affect was a hip hop beauty homerun fit for a tribute to the NY kings in pinstripes
  • Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer in Beige 2 and Mary Kay Concealer in Beige 2 to get Alicia’s beautiful face looking flawless

The overall affect (that and those thigh high lavender boots) were a definite home run.  That night, beauty and hip hop were the perfect match.  Alicia looked amazing…and just in case you missed the performance, here it is again below…

Stay Pretty!!
