Sunday night’s MTV VMA awards was full of hit (or miss) hair and fashion moments. But, what we loved most were the understated and matchy matchy beauty looks of the night. Tops on the list was black-ish actress Yara Shahidi who served up golden goddess vibes in a silk Zimmerman dress and vintage waves
Instead of opting for a basic nude lip, makeup artist Emily Cheng added a barely there shimmer with a golden beige offering from Chanel. For an even tone, Emily first applied concealer, then coated Yara’s lips in the brand’s glossy Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Beige Dore ($37).
“The incredibly beautiful color of her dress definitely had a huge part in planning her makeup look,” said Emily about the look which also 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.
