2009 American Music Awards: Alicia Keys’ Makeup

Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created a colorful, dramatic look
for Alicia Keys at the 2009 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. I was not obsessed with her dress, but I did love her blue shadow moment fluttering out from behind a fringe of lush lashes. Here are the deets, straight from Ashunta.

“Alicia’s look was inspired by her hand-beaded gown which was various shades of blue. I focused on golden glowing skin, beautiful blue and burgundy eyes, soft pink shimmery cheeks, full lashes and light pink lips. The look was pretty, regal and sexy,” said Sheriff.
