Her Royal Rap Highness Cardi B Has Blessed Us All With Her Met Gala Beauty Look
Her royal highness Cardi B came through drippin' on the Met Gala red carpet. Seriously — the star made her first appearance at fashion's buzziest event looking like rap royalty.
Not only were her bedazzled, baroque gown and headpiece absolutely stunning, but her hair and makeup were equally enviable. Cardi rocked booty-length waves courtesy of wig-master Tokyo Stylez. Her makeup artist, Erika LaPearl, used Marc Jacobs Beauty to create a stunning burgundy lip and cut-crease on her eyes.
"Cardi gave me full creative control in cultivating her makeup look. I worked closely with hair and wardrobe to ensure that all of our creative efforts complemented one another," Erica told POPSUGAR exclusively. "Her eyes are so beautiful and I wanted them to be the focus, so I exaggerated the extension of her eye area with Kiss Triple Push-Up lashes in Teddy and diffused eye shadow and intense black liner," she told us.
Of course, Cardi's nails were blinged out in coordinating gemstones by her longtime artist Jenny Bui.
We only have one word to describe how we feel about Cardi's Met Gala look: owwww!
