Best Beauty Moments From the NAACP Image Awards

This year’s NAACP Image Awards was like a family reunion that everyone was able to get time off work for since everyone was in the building! Beautifully beat faces graced the screen at every turn. Read on for a recap of some of the best beauty moments from the star-studded event.

Starting with our girl Taraji P. Henson who puts the slay in sultry with bronze eye shadow accompanied by copper brown lips.
Henson's makeup was a great complement to her sexy, natural look and curve hugging Balmain gown.

Kerry Washington is literally glowing. She has the perfect combination of highlighter and rose blush to make her skin flawless.
And I love that she’s keeping it sexy & simple with the eyes and lips. It just enough of a pop of color to make the whole look a sculpted masterpiece.

Gabrielle Union, as always, is beautiful. Here we have a consistent color played throughout the whole look. A soft burgundy color greets us with a glance of her eye, then graces the apples of her cheeks and finishes with a kiss goodbye at her lips. Three great places to take a color all the way through your look and not look over done. GET IT Gabby!

Laverne Cox was poised in pink for the event! So many say the rule in makeup is to pick a focal point, eyes or lips, but never both. Well Laverne Cox has mastered breaking the rule beautifully. She gives us a smoke eye with a pop of fuchsia pink color to the lips. The look was completed with the perfect touch of brown in the cheeks to sculpt that face. LOVING IT!!!

Gugu Mbatha-Raw pulled this look totally together. The bold yellow color of her dress needed a contrasting pop of color and she gave it exactly that with that beautiful pink lipstick of hers. Soft touch of blush in the checks and the nude lids, pulls the whole look together perfectly.

Yara Shahidi looked amazing wearing a blue graphic print Milly by Michelle Smith gown. The 15-year-old Black-Ish star completed the look with an age appropriated twisted updo.

Viola Davis was all smiles for the event rocking a bold fuchsia lip and smokey eye.

Queen of natural updos, Teyonah Parris, did not disappoint with unique and glam hair. The Chi-raq star slayed in a silk crepe gown by Romona Keveza.

Empire star, Serayah stunned in a sultry Philipp Plein dress, warm cheeks, and flirty lashes.

Naturi Naughton was Hollywood Glam in a sexy Galia Lahav gown and classic red pout.

Jada Pinkett-Smith set it off with a glamorous teal ruffled gown by Marches Resort 2016. The actress completed the look with a short, sleek 'do and glowing skin.
