In honor of the recent announcement of nominees for the 2021 BET Awards, we’re spotlighting some of the bold beauty trends that are often spotted on the red carpet at the BET Awards. From eye-popping eyeshadows to bold and sexy lips, see the bombshells who continue to give us inspiration for our next makeup looks.
Keri Hilson knew just how to compliment her hazel eyes—with colorful cosmetics! The I Like singer sported a trendy winged look featuring purple eyeshadow at the 2010 BET Awards. We’re pretty sure that this 80’s look could easily work today.
Kelly Rowland gave us serious makeup inspiration at the 2011 BET Awards. The Motivation singer’s gaze instantly caught our attention thanks to her gorgeous champagne-colored eyeshadow featuring bright purple eyeliner on her waterline.
We couldn’t talk about bold makeup looks without highlighting Serayah’s vampy lip at the 2015 BET Awards. Such a rockstar moment!
The same year, Eva Marcille walked the 2015 BET Awards red carpet with a similar vampy lip. While we loved the model's choice of an edgy lipstick, we were especially mesmerized by her sparkly eyeshadow and super dramatic lashes.
Shay Johnson went for a flirty look for the 2019 BET Awards. The reality star looked muy caliente in a shimmery gold eyeshadow with frisky red lipstick to match her monochromatic red ensemble. Sizzling, hot!
We’re already anticipating all the gorgeous beauty looks to be seen on this year’s red carpet. Watch the 2021 BET Awards on June 27 at 8/9C p.m.
