Alicia Keys wears BLACK OPAL at the 5th annual “Keep a Child Alive Black Ball”!
It’s no surprise that the always-fabulous Alicia Keys looked super chic at the 5th annual “Keep a Child Alive Black Ball”!
BLACK OPAL Invisible Oil Blocking Powder.
Her makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, says:
“I wanted to make Alicia look a little more sophisticated and grown compared to years before. 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 Blocking 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.”

Black Opal is a leading skincare and color cosmetics line specifically designed to address the unique skincare needs of women and men of color. Created in 1994 by BioCosmetic Research Labs, Black Opal was developed with the consultation of Dr. Cheryl Burgess, an African-American dermatologist who had spent years treating troubled skin and seeing the inadequacy of over-the-counter skincare products available for black skin.
