Erika La Pearl’s makeup artistry to is undeniably out of this world! She has crafted looks for some of today’s stars such as Mona Scott Young, Sofia Richie, Tamika Scott, and Cardi B. Erika showcased her talents once again at last night’s American Music Awards and she’s giving us all the details! You’ll be quite surprised to know that the look was crafted with all L’Oreal products!
“When I first saw Cardi’s dress, I had actually planned on creating a neutral look, but then as we were doing her makeup today we decided to have a little more fun and add some color. We opted for dewy skin with pops of purples and pinks on her eyes and a subtle, cobalt blue lash.” Erika explained.
Erika began Cardi’s look by creating a pink and purple eye look. First, she used the pink tones from the Paradise Enchanted Palette all over the eyelid. She then used the Colour Riche Pocket Palette in both Violet Amour and Avenue des Roses, creating dimension with the various purple and pink shades.
Next, Erika lined the bottom of Cardi’s eyes with Infallible Pro-Last Eyeliner in Purple.
For lashes, Erika utilized a mixture of black and royal blue mascara to complement the purple-pink eyeshadow. For the top lashes, she used Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Blackest Black. On the bottom lashes, she used Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt Blue. She also swiped the top lashes with a coat of the cobalt blue on top of the black mascara as well.
For Cardi’s face, Erika first prepped the skin with Derm Intensives Hyaluronic Acid Serum.
Then, to create a super-dewy skin look she mixed True Match Lumi Glow Amour Drops in Golden Hour with Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation (#207 & #209) and applied all over.
Next, Erika spot-concealed with the Infallible Pro-Glow Concealer.
For blush, Erika used a mixture of the various shades of Paradise Enchanted Blush. She first used the deeper shades and then layered on the lighter, peachier shades.
Erika then finished off the dewy skin look by highlighting with True Match Lumi Shimmerista Powder in both Moonlight and Sunlight. She applied the powder to Cardi’s cheekbones, the bridge of her nose and her collarbones.
For brows, Erika used the NEW Brow Stylist Unbelieva-brow in Brunette and Dark Brunette. The brow gel helped create a bold brow look that also had staying power to last through Cardi’s performance.
Next, on Cardi’s body and legs, Erika applied True Match Lumi Glotion in Medium all over for added glow.
Erika finished Cardi’s look by adding a red lip, using Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly In Love (#102) applied straight from the tube.
