BET Awards 2012

Monday, 2 July 2012

It’s not the most talked-about event, but the ladies at the Black Entertainment Television Awards whipped out their nude lippies and lengthy falsies in style.

Eddie Murphy (51) showed off his new girlfriend, 28-year-old Rocsi Diaz at the award ceremony – Rocsi’s soft waves with reddish highlights subtly complimented her peach cheeks and lip. As one of half of the Jocelyn and Antonio Pierce sporting couple, Jocelyn’s coral eye shadow was reminiscent of the MTV Movie Awards 2012 trend as was celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins’.

Actress Joyful Drake played matchy-matchy with her eye shadow and lip colour while LaLa Vasquez-Anthony and Tichina Arnold opted for a darker eye. Singer Letoya Luckett radiated a fresh-faced look as fellow songstresses Michelle Williams and Tamia let their bronzed cheeks hit the high notes.

Why Did I Get Married actress Tasha Smith stepped out with bangs and a red lip while The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s Tatyana Ali proved she was all grown up drawing her hair off her face for a sophisticated finish.

Singer Nicki Minaj rocked out with her platinum locks, actress Kerry Washington softened her do with a half-up braid and subtle waves while Wendy Raquel Robinson went au natural with tight curls.

Brandy also opted for a half-up do, brown lip and subtle smoky eye, but Taraji P Henson went all the way and then some, twisting her up-do in a loose side bun.
