VMA Beauties

PC to

In traditional fashion, you know I have to speak on last night's VMA's. Usually, I pass up this opportunity because, well, it's BORING! LoL However, last night's VMA's were definitely on point for a few reasons.

So of course, the highlight of the night was none other than Mrs. Carter! Who proved once and for all that she will always raise the bar in music, dance and fashion! But I digress, let's actually recap some of  the fashion and beauty that stood out to me, from the night.

Let's start with who absolutely killed it in every way possible, besides Queen Bey of course! ;)

PC to

JLO is the definition of perfection in this stunning Charbel Zoe dress! The makeup compliments her golden skin and is very subtle! I absolutely love a nude lip on Jlo. Well played, gorgeous!

   Oh, Miss Kylie! My how you've grown into such a beautiful young woman! I love everything about this look! The Dress, the hair, the shoes and of course the makeup! Kylie does well with a vampy lip. Dark colors compliment her olive skin tone perfectly. **3 twirls to her stylist**

Ariana Grande can pair just about anything with thigh high boots. I love this little gem. Her voice can seriously move a crowd and her fashion sense for being so young, is on point. Ariana is wearing a semi-Hollywood glam look with a soft smokey eye and dark red lips. Love this!

There's nothing crazy at all about Uzo Aduba as she clearly can do no wrong! I only have one word for this look and it's FIERCE! Her stance alone screams that she's not here to put on a show but that she's definitely making a statement! With a silver smokey eye paired with bold dark red lips, she's just stunning! Not to mention, her hair is laid hunty! 

Ms. Minaj is gorgeous with her natural dark hair. With a smudged cat eye and nude lips, her makeup compliments her entire look perfectly.

In the words of Jay Z, "On to the next one!"  Beyonce is just glowing in this Nicolas Jebran Black Sheer Gown.
With shades of bronze and subtle smokey eye, she is just glowing on the red carpet. Her stylist Ty Hunter is just a beat behind her, ensuring that every single inch is perfection. 

Her makeup from her performance was just as stunning! Still rocking the soft smokey eye but with a pop of color on the lips! Ugh, so much life!

 Let's talk about Beyonce's 15 minute VMA performance that left the audience in tears! Sigh. Now, I've seen this woman perform live a few times but I've never seen her do damn near a whole album in 15 minutes! LAWDD! 

And that she did! My edges are gone, I cannot focus.. all I want to do is watch Bey dance and drop it... all day long.

 She even had Blue Ivy, groovin!

 Get it, Blue! 

I leave you with this. Check out Mrs. Carter's full performance here!

So.. besides Bey, what were your thoughts on this year's VMA's? Feel free to drop a comment below.
