I am a huge fan of Ava and was so thrilled to see her at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show. She was by far one of my best dressed that night……everything was working, the navy dress, the makeup and the locs in an updo!

Speaking of makeup, I was thrilled to see that her makeup was done by international makeup artist Uzo and NARS cosmetics. She looked gorgeous!

Here’s a breakdown of the look and an inspiration:

The Inspiration

“The look was about a woman in a position of power. Ava’s statement-making makeup was kept soft and ethereal to balance her bold hairstyle and architectural Zac Posen gown. I created a velvety, smoky chocolate eye and soft neutral shades for her cheeks and lips.”

Her hairstyle was done by celebrity natural hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood and I loved this! Basically, if I had locs, I would want them to look like hers!
