Ah, the American Music Awards. What an interesting night. The many highs (Janet, Lady Gaga, Mary J.) and the many, many lows (Adam Lambert, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna). Speaking of Rihanna, announcers kept calling this her “return”. Where the hell did she go? Have we not seen her out and about doing various Riri activities in couture outfits since she came out? Whatever the case, I was extra excited to see her perform. I never thought of her as much of a singer, but the girl can crank out some hot singles and dress to impress!
The biggest beauty buzz of the night had to be the red cat eye that she wore, care of Mylah Morales and sick lashes by Jamaal Buster. (Azia or Faces from Azia kindly pointed out that she was most likely wearing the Disturbia lashes. Makes a lot of sense, right?) The picture was sent around the twitterverse by Concrete Loop. The red liner and her green eyes make a lethal combination! ( I thought it was a hot pink, but Mylah told us on twitter that it was red.) So, after many hours of speculation, I had to try it. I used MAC Bold and Brazen Pigment from the Starflash collection. The Verdict: Mine looked a mess.
Not only did it look a mess, I experienced the reason they tell you not to wear certain colors around your eye area. I know they don’t put those disclaimers on products for their own health, but what can I say? I’m a rebel! Now I’m wide awake, eyes blood shot, itchy and crusted over. Why? I was trying to get my Riri on. Okay Scandalous Beauty, fall back!
