The 2018 BET Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, brought together some of Hollywood’s biggest heavyweights. And though the evenings performances were on point, and host Jamie Foxx impressed with his off-the-cuff commentary, we here at Beauty could not look away from the red carpets many offerings – because, They. Were. Fierce.
But fashion forward style statements aside, we couldn’t help but be captivated with this year’s eye-popping makeup. From Tyra Bank’s bubblegum pink lip, to Amber Rose’s chic, monochromatic palette, the star-studded event left nothing to be desired. Here, we share our top tips and tricks for ‘stealing that style’ – so you can bring you’re a-game to the warm weather months ahead!
Steal it: Tyra’s Angelic Lip Look
Tyra Banks is known for her striking style statements – but her look at this year’s BET Awards was unparalleled. With creamy locks that matched her creamy, one-piece jumpsuit, the model pulled out all of the stops. But the look we’ll be stealing? Her bubblegum pink lip, which was the perfect pop of color against her otherwise monochromatic palette. Try Givenchy Beauty Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick, Rose Neon No. 21, which touts rich pigments and nourishing oils.
Steal it: Janelle’s Brazen Pout
For her red-carpet appearance, Janelle Monae deviated from her usually-understated wardrobe, and instead, donned a bold rainbowed colored frock. She pared it with a vampy red lip, which we can’t help but think looked like summer encapsulated. The best part? It’s a wear anywhere hue that has the ability to instantly elevate any look. For a moisture-rich option that glides on in a single swipe and boasts a stay-put satin-smooth formula, reach for SMASHBOX Be Legendary Cream Lipstick, Red-Rage.
Steal it: Blac Chyna’s Bold Eyeliner
Blac Chyna is known for her traffic-stopping style statements – and her BET Awards Ceremony ‘fit wasn’t an exception; silver chainmail, which left very little to the imagination, adorned her curves. She complemented the look with an electric blue liner. For a toned-down version, reach for Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner, 17 Turquoise. Whether for a pool party or a festival, this versatile shimmering aqua won’t budge or smudge.
Steal it: Amber’s Monochromatic Makeup
Amber Rose wore a skin skimming green velvet gown, which she complemented with chic, monochromatic makeup. And though the technique might seem daunting, you can steal the style in a flash with the Trish McEvoy New York Makeup Planner CITY CHIC Set – which hits all of the right notes.
So whether you watched for the all-star performances, the brazen style statements, or the celebrity reveals, the BET Awards were a sight to behold – and we here at Beauty Coach can’t wait to take our beauty cues from our favorite, fierce ladies!
