Amber Rose Is Our Beauty Icon Of The Day — Here's Why

AmberRose
We're totally smitten with Amber Rose's look from last night's BET Awards. Her matte lip is obviously what we noticed first, as it's probably our favorite runway trend for this summer. We love how the color has a splash of violet in it, making it way more compelling than your standard pink lip. If you are as into it as we are, Bite Beauty's Matte Crème Lipstick in Pastille Violet is a similar color.

Also, though, check out her eyes. With white liner on her lower waterline, and lashes for days, Rose looks like she's never missed a minute of sleep in her life (this is even more impressive considering she has a four-month-old baby). Her bright eyes and lips combined with a glowing pink right on the apples of her cheeks makes Rose look totally summery, fresh, and original. We'd say this Rose is in full bloom, wouldn't you?
