Jessica Alba took a beauty risk at the Billboard Music Awards, and we’re kind of into it. Wearing her hair slicked back into a high knot, Jessica completed her look with defined blue eye makeup. What did you think of her beauty look?
Jessica Alba, 35, completely surprised us when she stepped out onto the pink carpet at the BBMAs in Las Vegas on May 22. While most of the other attendees stuck to beachy waves and smokey eyes, Jessica wore her hair in a structured updo with bold blue eye makeup.
Wearing a see-through black Zuhair Murad mini dress, Jessica added a bit of edge to her look with thigh-high black boots to match. Despite the reportedly hot weather, Jessica’s dress included a turtleneck and long sleeves that hardly seemed to make the actress break a sweat.
To show off the details of her dress, Jessica wore her hair slicked back in what appeared to be a ponytail from the front, but was actually pinned into several knots at the back of her head. To copy her, use a gel like Garnier Fructis Super Stiff Gel at the crown of your head to smooth your hair back into a high ponytail. Twist the ponytail into a knot and pin it into place, spraying with Garnier Fructis Anti-Humidity Hairspray to lock the look in place. Finish by wrapping a black ribbon around the elastic at the top of your ponytail like Jessica did.
For her makeup, the Honest Company and Honest Beauty founder surely turned to some of her very own beauty favorites. For her defined blue eye makeup, use the Honest Beauty True Velvet Eyeliner in Truly Sapphire to line your lower and top lash line, blending well. Then, use the Eyeshadow Trio in Ocean Blue, creating a winged out shadow look. Letting her eye makeup do the statement making, Jessica finished the look with a nude gloss like her Lip Gloss in Dreamy Kiss.
Before presenting the award for Top Male Artist, Jessica shared her excitement on her Instagram account with a sneak peek at the seating arrangement, saying: “So I guess I know where I’m sitting tomorrow! 💃🏽@bbmas #bbmas.” In the pic, Jessica’s name and picture were placed directly behind Britney Spears, who was set to open the show with a medley performance of her greatest hits.
