The MTV Music Video Awards may have come and gone, but we’re still in total awe over just how fabulous Yara Shahidi looked.
Per usual, the 17-year-old Black-ish actress slayed from head to toe. Serving a vibrant golden look fit for only a goddess, her silk dress and finger waved ponytail were dynamic. But aside from her fit, her minimal but effective makeup had us ready to take notes. Especially her barely there nude lip.
Executed by makeup artist Emily Cheng, instead of going for a dry matte look, l. To mimic Shahidi’s complexion, Cheng blotted her lips with concealer and then swiped a coat of Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Beige Dore ($37) to seal the deal.
“The incredibly beautiful color of her dress definitely had a huge part in planning her makeup look,” said Emily. The makeup artist went on to share that Shahidi’s full look featured a lightly smoked golden green eye using more beauty finds by Chanel, including Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Dore, Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tisse d’Automne layered with Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Poudre d’Or.
“When she finally came out in her dress and I saw the color of her eyeshadow literally reflect off of it, I was squealing with joy,” said Emily.
