The BET Awards is the biggest award ceremony on the Urban Calendar. Big congrats to Davido on his win. Moving on, the makeup trend like most red carpets this year was flawless nudes and coloured pouts. Hair was kind of boring as well. I guess black women just got the memo that less is more. Anywho here are some beauty looks from our ebony sisters.
Tiwa’s Makeup and Hair was really pretty. Her side fishtail braid and nude makeup with nude pink lips really brought out her youthful side.
Not a great picture but my fav OAP looked great with her hair pulled off her face and flawless makeup.
Loving the bouncy shoulder length bob and nude pink pout on Stephanie. Really goes with her personality.
I like the idea of the fringe and the bun. But that synthetic weave is a no no. Like her fellow African sisters the nude pink lips look great on her.
Would have loved her hair if it was a side or centre part but that Big bird looking fringe just makes it look wrong.
Curly and Wavy Locks
This is how you do long curly or wavy locks –
This is how you know it’s time to take off your long curly or wavy locks –
The pinned back, volumized straight hair brings out Gabrielle’s youthful face. A modern take on the 70s teased do.
Orange lipstick on dark skin is a hot trend this summer (click here) and it looks fantastic on Kenya. Her hair looks messy though.
Karrueche Tran as always looks pretty with her curly long locks.
You can never go wrong with shoulder length, side parted hair like on Kerry Washington and Shayne Murphy.
THE BOBS AND THE 7
My Favourite Bobs – they all look stunning. (Latoya luckett, Tameka Tiny, Regina Hall)
Sevyn Streeter looks like she rolled out of bed and unto the red carpet with that hair. Terrible cut and wrong weave in my opinion.
The orange lips and the tight bun looks fab on Adrianna Ballion and I love the messy bun and pink lips on Latasha Rose.
However I really don’t understand what’s going on with Laura Govan’s hair. I want to believe she was running late for the awards and her hair was wet so she decided to do something to it (confused face)?
Almost didn’t recognise Ashanti and Lil Mama with their new blonde dos. Well I guess when your career has stalled you need to make a statement with your hair on the red carpet. Don’t know how I feel about their hair. What do you guys think?
Amber Rose always looks flawless in her shaved blonde hair and almost nude make up.
BEST HAIR AND MAKEUP LOOK
It just had to go to Charli Baltimore. Love her blonde side French roll and instead of wearing nude makeup and coloured lips like the others, she did the opposite by keeping her lips nude and smoking up the eyes. Absolutely STUNNING!
WORST HAIR AND MAKEUP LOOK
I’m not going to acknowledge this look with a long comment, all I’m going to say is modern day Medusa.
What are your favourite looks?
