A Roundup Of KC-Approved Makeup Looks From the 2016 CFDA Awards

Having worked in the beauty business for many, many years, I can be pretty picky when it comes to makeup looks.

However, on the heels of this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards, I wanted to take some time to hand out compliments to a few celebrities who excelled in the makeup department on Monday evening.

Here are my three favorites.

Shanina Shaik 

Shanina maybe

Bold brows, dewy skin and baby pink lips seems like they were made for the magnificent Shanina Shaik, right?! Whether it was by design or not, every element of this makeup look allows Shanina’s natural beauty to shine through. Absolute perfection.

Rachel Roy


Not sure the murmurings about a mid-show flee are true or not, but Rachel Roy looked absolutely divine when she stepped onto the red carpet before the event kicked off. She went for a demure makeup look, opting for long lashes and a swipe of pink lipstick, which worked well with her red dress, hair and dangly gold earrings alike.

Jasmine Tookes

2016 CFDA Fashion Awards

Jasmine Tookes is always a knock-out, but her expertly-applied foundation, smoky eyes (with a dab of sparkle to boot!) and glossy-but-not-too-glossy lips helped her to steal the show the other night. Really, really lovely.

Until next time, ladies!
