Get the Look: Erica from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

Reunion edition...............

Ok, Listen. I KNOW the show is GHETTO, and I know Erica and Francine, Shay looked so ridiculous fighting over 'Lil Scrappy' on the stage...............................    but Erica's makeup was FLAWLESS.

The scarlet/purple/magenta and slightly vampy color scheme worked well for her.

Here's how I would re-create this look.

Cheeks:  I would use this scarlet color from Black Radiance in "Raspberry" in my contour then blend it out with this really pretty purple blush from Makeup Forever in number "9"

Lips:  To get Erica's dark/vampy lip color, I would use this deep magenta/purple lipstick from Sephora's Rouge collection in "R23".  If you want a more purple lip color, Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in "04" would also work for this look. Regardless of the lip color, I would top it off with a clear gloss to make the look more "wearable."  Here I have Smashbox's "Relection High Shine Lip Gloss."

Eyes:  Erica is wearing a light/pastel purple color on her lids, but I would just keep it simple by using Milani's Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in "Black" in my waterline, and wing it out with Maybelline's Eyestudio Gel Liner in "Blackest Black" on my upper lid.

And I know y'all don't see it for Ms. Hernandez either, but she looked good on the reunion too.... Admit it! lol

Let me know what you think.
Whose look did you like the best on the reunion show?
