Beauty Tips With Dunni: Hair & Beauty Report From The 2015 AMVCA’s

share on:

I am sure that many of you are tired of reading about the AMVCA’s but I am almost certain this would be one of the last articles on it, besides you shouldn’t whine about this article because this one is looking at it from a different angle.

We are basically going to discuss the beauty trends from the red carpet at the AMVCA’s


I am glad there were no major make-up faux pas this year, females minimized the contouring and highlighting and every one seemed to have the right shade of powder on.

For eye-shadows, bronzes, browns, and golds were opted for by many.

I honestly thought purple, red or oxblood would be the major lip trend.

I was not at the event but I have looked through every single picture about four times and I can guarantee you that only a small number of females had on any of those lipsticks altogether . Every one seemed to opt for other colors especially fuschia pink, light pink, dark pink and nude.

To achieve the fuschia pink lip color, you can use the following lipsticks: MAC’s Candy Yum Yum, House Of Tara’s Kontagora, NYX Black Label Hot Pink, Anastasia Beverly Hill’s liquid lipstick in Party Pink

To achieve the light pink lip color: MAC’s Please Me, House of Tara’s Inyanga

To achieve the dark pink lip color: MAC’s Girl About Town, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Carina , House of Tara’s Onitsha

To achieve the nude lip color: This is a little dicey, because the nudes I am familiar with are brown-nudes e.g MAC’s velvet teddy, MAC’s Mocha & MAC’s Taupe. I am not a fan of  clear-nude lipsticks but you can simply walk into any store and ask for clear lip gloss or apply a very small portion of any of the light pink lipsticks listed above .


Moving on to hair, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I wasn’t sure if people would extend the grey hair craze to the red carpet also blonde isn’t apparently all that cool anymore so I was honestly clueless.

But then, arrived the thousand and one pictures in my mailbox and I figured it out. The Side Sweep!!!

When I realized it I just kept screaming Oh-My-God. Why I did that I do not know…lol

About fourty-five percent of females at the 2015 African Magic Viewers Choice Awards had the side sweep on and they all pulled it off beautifully. I think the weirdest part was that most of them had it on in black.
