Beauty: Cardi B’s Makeup Artist Talks About That Baby Announcement Photo That Broke Instagram

Most heavily pregnant women will tell you, a full-on makeup glow up and costume pregnancy photo shoot is not a drive through. Yet Cardi B appeared so refreshed and regal in her latest picture posts to announce the arrival of her first child, baby Kulture Kiari Cephus.

Where else can we get the behind story than to look to her makeup artist for guidance?

Makeup guru Erika La’ Pearl has shared the intel on the look everyone is raving about. She revealed she made Cardi B using products almost entirely from the reasonably priced brand, BH Cosmetics.

For her skin, it is revealed that Cardi’s natural pregnancy glow got prepped with Stacked Skincare’s Dermaplaning Tool, and then vegan based BH’s Naturally Flawless liquid foundation got applied to her skin.

For extra coverage, La’ Pearl used Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer, before setting with Studio Pro Matte Finish Press Powder.

Cardi flaunted that gorgeous bronzed eye from BH’s Studio Pro Ultimate Neutrals Palette, highlighter from Duo Light Highlight Palette and then the glowing effect of her exposed skin was intensifying with Blacklight Highlight Palette.

La’ Pearl finished off the look by applying layers of TL3 3D Luxury Mink lashes from Tatti Lashes to give Cardi a bright-eyed effect and lastly, a deep red lip.

Her hair was by hairstylist Tokyo Stylez and her custom skirt from Project Runway contestant Michael Costello for a second shot was put together by stylist, Kollin Carter.

Yes! It does take a village.
