Queen Latifah was honored at the awards and looked amazing on the red carpet. Her makeup was done by COVERGIRL Beauty Ambassador Sam Fine — he is spilling the exact tips, tricks and products used below!

Queen Latifah’s Makeup At Black Girls Rock! — Get Her Exact Look With COVERGIRL

Sam tells HollywoodLife.com:

Makeup is often inspired by the outfit and after seeing the shimmering copper and black dress, I decided to go for the gold! Queen was being honored with the BGR! “Rock Star” Award so she had to have a show-stopping beauty look!

Every red carpet look begins with a great foundation! I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3-in -1 Foundation in Toffee #Q820. Not only does it provide flawless looking skin, it helped Latifah maintain a shine-free finish that lasted all through the night.

I frequently use two bronzers to achieve the perfect glow! COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Brown Bronze #Q110 matches Latifah’s complexion perfectly and can be used in place of blush. Yet, for a more dramatic effect, I used a bronzer one shade deeper (Ebony Bronze #Q120) around the outer perimeter of the face — hairline, cheekbones, etc — to add dimension and gently contour her gorgeous face!

I’m often responsible for packing Latifah’s purse for an all-night affair… and the only product she needed for an occasion like Black Girls Rock! is a touch of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder in Golden #Q410 applied to her T-zone — around the nose, center of the face — and of course a lip (but more on that later).

For red carpet events, I suggest choosing one feature and making the most of it! For the awards, I decided to make it all about the eyes! I started by applying COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel #330 from the lashline to the crease and gently blending outwards toward the hairline for a sexy, sultry, elongated eye. I topped off my shadow work by drawing a dramatic line using COVERGIRL Ink it! Liner by in Black Ink #230 and few coats of COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lash Fanatic Mascara in Very Black #Q115. Lastly, I applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Midnight#300 inside the inner rim for added drama!

Allowing the eyes to take center stage, I opted for a nude lip using one of my favorite COVERGIRL Queen Collection products: Jumbo Gloss Balm in Twinkling Toffee #Q855. Just twist up and glide on for subtle color with a hint of shine.

Watch Black Girls Rock!

BET will air the show on November 3 at 7pm EST.
