81ST ACADEMY AWARDSWhile I still maintain I did not like the “hair style”, Alicia Keys’ makeup was right on target.

Her face was actually done by Ashunta Sheriff using Mary Kay cosmetics, and it was styled to channel the era of  Veronica Lake and Lena Horne,

Ashunta used a peachy palette to punctuate the cheeks, including  Mary Kay’s Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush and then maintained the fruity trend by using a raspberry lip liner  and Polynesian Petals lipstick.

The goal had been classy and glamorous – and the makeup definitely worked. We won’t talk about the unfortunate hair.
