Celebrity Makeup Inspo: Cardi B 2018 VMA Makeup

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you a makeup look that I was totally inspired by.  Cardi B's makeup artist, Erika LaPearl created a really fierce cat eye mauve lip combo for the 2018 MTV VMAs.  I loved her red lip version too and knew that I wanted to recreate it.  If only I had a short wig to match.  Check it out!
First, I started with matte full coverage skin.  I used the new IT Cosmetics Matte CC Cream.  Next I went for a full, darker brow.  I rounded my shape to match Cardi B's.

The eyes are a cat eye shape with a cut crease, gold in the lid, and brow to contour the outer v.

Lastly, is a matte, mauve lip.  A liquid lipstick is a good choice.  

I love Cardi B's deep set eyes but this look works on any eye shape - cat eye makeup is super flattering and as you can see also works on my flat lids.

Hope you all enjoyed!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
