ICYMI: The Black Girls That Owned the Red Carpet at the 2018 Black Girls Rock!

These celebrities prove there’s no such thing as too much #BlackGirlMagic

In the words of Rihanna, ‘all girls rock but black girls, we are on another level’ – and this statement has never been more true. This past weekend black women came together for a night to celebrate being themselves!

As expected, they snatched our edges with their bold makeup looks and mesmerising hairstyles. Here are some of the best beauty moments that we spotted on the red carpet:

The Black Girls That Owned The Red Carpet At The 2018 Black Girls Rock:

Amandla Stenberg

Darkest Minds starlet Amandla Stenberg kept things very natural on the red carpet, but ensured that her lips made a statement. Her curls are goals – so voluminous, so curly and so chic!

Actress Skai Jackson didn’t come to play! The precision in that winged liner is everything, and can we also have a moment for the silver eye makeup?! STUNNING!

Janet Jackson

The woman of the moment, Miss Jackson looked so regal on the red carpet with her work-of-art topknot. The sultry under-eye smokey makeup perfectly sealed the beauty moment.

The Level Up singer looked oh-so-glam with classic red lipstick and a shoulder-length wavy bob, which beautifully framed her face.

Storm Reid

Wrinkle In Time actress Storm Reid looked so angelic with her minimal makeup. She also killed it with the cutest curly updo.

Lil Mama

The hip-hop artist kept her look very clean, soft and dewy, successfully completing it with glossy lips. This look totally gets the stamp of approval from the COSMO beauty team.
