Cardi b

When Cardi B isn’t making waves in the music industry, the iconic rapper is slaying the red carpet and social media with her latest beauty looks. Whether she’s hitting NYFW week or taking risks with her fashion and beauty statements at the Grammy’s, the hot new mama is truly a force of nature. Excitingly, the Bodak Yellow music mogul always keeps her #BardiGang on their toes thanks to her fabulous long-time makeup artist, Erika La Pearl. The Latina MUA is behind all Cardi’s perfectly sculpted cheekbones and highly pigmented eyeshadow lids. The dynamic duo is known for creating bold and vibrant pops of colors to match the Bronx Native’s outgoing style. Recently Cardi accepted her iHeartRadio Music Award for “Hip-Hop Artist Of The Year" via satellite video with a full face beat, which was everything! Luckily for us, the makeup gods aligned and we got her MUA to dish on all the details behind the gorgeous look.

“ I wanted to make sure that she was flawless. For this [look], I used ICONIC London. I actually love their products,” Erika told HOLA! USA. "The brand is global sellout, and many of their beauty buys are used amongst A-listers such as Kim Kardashian, Meghan Markle, and more."
