Alicia Keys's Makeup at the 2009 MTV VMAs

Get Alicia's Popping Pink Lips and Rosy Cheeks From the VMAs

With descriptions like "impeccable" and "chic" in the comments section of my love it or hate it poll for Alicia Keys, it was obvious you were feeling her 2009 MTV VMAs style. Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created the flattering look using Mary Kay products. You know I'm all about the basics, and for just under $25, you can have the same exact cheeks and lips palette Alicia wore last night. Since the lips are such a focal point of any singer's performance, Sheriff wanted to make Alicia's lips pop, but not at the expense of making them look unnatural. To achieve that goal, she used NouriShine Lip Gloss in Melon Sorbet ($13). To complement the palette, Sheriff opted for a rosy shade — Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream ($10).
