Get the Look: Alicia Keys at the AMAs

Alicia Keys‘s makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, took inspiration from the songbird’s sexy Giorgio Armani dress to create a “sophisticated, sexy, glamorous” look for her. Ashunta created a retro smoky eye by first drawing a super thick line along Alicia’s upper lashline and adding an exaggerated wing at the outer corner, then lining the inner rim of her lower lid with Dior waterproof pencil in Trinidad Black, $24. Then for a little sparkle, she brushed Dior 1-Colour Powder Mono Eyeshadow in Silverdust, $24, onto her lid and inner corner of her eye. Finishing with a swipe of Dior 1-Colour Powder Mono Eyeshadow in Ready to Beige, $24, on the browbone and crease. And then she added a couple of coats of Dior DiorShow Mascara in Black, $23, for dramatic lashes. To complement Alicia’s dramatic eyes, she went for neutrals on the rest of the face — a coat of peachy Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Lacy Sorbet, $25, and some rosy Dior Blush in Stawberry Sorbets, $34, along her cheekbones. To give Alicia a gorgeous glow, Ashunta brushed Bare Escentuals I.D. All-Over Face Color in Warm Radiance, $18, to her entire face. The look was so glamorous that all she had to do to get her stage ready was add sparkles with Girlactik Signature Sparkle Shadow in Bronze and Gold, $10.
