Awards ceremonies (like the 3 Music Awards) are exciting shows for me. Unlike most people, who go in to watch performances or see which celebrity gets awarded, I tune in because I want to see what they wore and the other prominent question, “Girl who did your makeup?”

It is not easy to pull a look that is picture perfect or stand the test of time because cameras and flashlights will expose you and all your powder mishaps. So let’s salute these celebrities(and their makeup artists) that brought their A game and served us looks on the red carpet.

1. Benedicta Gafah

3 Music Awards Benedicta Gafah

Benedicta kept it very simple with the eye look, almost natural. However, she has a bit of drama on her lower lash with a dark and light shade on her waterline. She finishes of the look with a nude glossy lips.

2. Nikki Samonas

Nikki Samonas 3 Music Awards

I have always been a fan of Nikki Samonas because she is not afraid of bright colors and knows how to work it to her advantage. Nikki opted for a smokey eyes and a bold red lip to finish it off. Look how she coordinate her yellow! We stan a queen!

3. Clara Benson

Clara Benson or Maame Serwaa was a breath of fresh air at the award ceremony. She went in with a classy dark smokey eye, blinding highlights in her tear ducts and a nude lips.

4. Gloria Sarfo

Gloria always make bold statements and I love that about her. She decided to go with a dark cut crease, the classic red lips, and her natural hair is held in a high bun to accentuate her features. We love it!

5. Adina

Talk about representation! Adina infused a waxprint into her gown, strayed away from the classic reds or nudes but gives a slightly matte orange lipstick to match her glitter eye look. She bagged this look!

6. Shirley E. F. Tibilla

Shirley or Cookie of Starr FM was the host of the award ceremony. She had a very subtle glam with a bronzy eyeshadow look and a colorful waterline. Her choice of lipstick was a matte red brown.

7. Cina Soul

Cina Soul was definitely my best dressed for the night! Cina Soul rocked a nude cute crease and ombre glossy lips. I am a fan!

Below’s a Spotify playlist of her songs.

8. Margaret Dery

Margaret Dery was Miss Ghana 2017 and clearly does not stop stealing spotlights at award shows. Margaret chose an ombre lips and smokey eyes for the ceremony

9. Beverly Afaglo

Beverly’s eye look was one of the best looks of the evening. She also opted for a dark smokey eye but gave us a dash of blue color in her tear duct. She rounded up the look with an ombre pink lip. I am here for this look!


These are some of my favourite looks from the awards ceremony. If you think any other celebrity or guest was impeccably dressed too, I will love to hear from you.

Love,
