Singer Alicia Keys has a relatively low-key sense of style, but that doesn't mean she avoids daring beauty looks every now and then. Recently, she showed up at an event wearing a tough fitted leather jacket, bold red lipstick and a unique pairing of eyeshadow and liquid eyeliner, reports Glamour Magazine's beauty blog.
Alicia's slicked-back hair always draws attention to the gorgeous features of her face, and she likes to play up those pretty almond-shaped eyes. While it's usually custom to pair bold lips with subdued, neutral eye makeup, Alicia took a risk by using a mauve eyeshadow and a thick application of liquid eyeliner.
According to the news source, the fact that the songstress was able to pull of this unlikely combo had a lot to do with her warm skin tone. It also helped that she didn't go all-out with fake lashes, and stuck to a heated lash curler for extra curve and tube mascara for a bit of added length.
