Historically MTV's biggest night in music is known for bringing out the best in our favorite artist, and this year was no different.t The 2019 VMAs red carpet was one to watch. From J Balvin’s leopard green hair to Rosalia's perfectly sculpted eyebrows, celebrities brought their “A” game in the beauty department. Our favorite Afro-Latina singer, Amara La Negra was no exception to this rule!
Amara hits the red carpet with a sparkling number
The former Love & Hip-Hop Miami star, who is known for her empowering afro, traded in her iconic hairstyle for a silky straight blow out. To complete the look, Amara’s hairstylist added a chic crown braid with some head-turning bangs to her long lob. Her sleek blowout was accompanied with a dramatic plum-ready makeup look and wispy lashes.
The What A Bam Bam star’s shimmering metallic lid gave us a bold plum and black smokey vibe. If you’re looking for Fall-approved beauty inspo, look no more. While these purple shadows look glamorous on all skin tones, they beautifully complement medium to dark complexions. One of our favorites to recreate this stunning look is Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette, $27. The nine-pan palette boasts highly pigmented plums and eggplant tones in two finishes — mattes and shimmers.
