Get the Look: Alicia Keys at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball


Alicia Keys rocked space-age silver eyes at the 5th annual Keep a Child Alive Black Ball. She’s a co-founder of this charity. Go Alicia!

Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created Alicia’s dramatic-yet-sophisticated look for the event. “I wanted to make Alicia look a little more sophisticated and grown compared to years before,” said Sheriff.

Here’s Ashunta Sheriff’s breakdown of Alicia’s look:

“I made her complexion a radiant and creamy beige using DermaBlend Quick Stix in Natural to conceal eyes and then sprayed DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation in 400 for a flawless finish. Then I set makeup with Black Opal Invisible Oil Blotting Control Powder.

I wanted to focus on her eyes since she would be performing for two hours so I used Dior Eye Show in White Disco as a base, then layered using the Dior 5-Colour Eye Palette in Moonlight.

I finished the look with three coats of DiorShow Iconic Mascara in black and Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Oil Slick. I used an entire pack of Shu Uemura’s individual lashes to create volume and length. Finally, I used Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Linen Beige on the lips.”
