Aaliyah "We Need a Resolution" Makeup

Nov 5, 2012

 I was feeling a bit nostalgic and was watching videos from the late 90s/early 2000s. I saw "We Need A Resolution" and was inspired to the look. The look itself is fairly easy to do. It's a black smokey and in the video you can see there is a hint of blue whenever Aaliyah looked down which I liked. The whole makeup/wardrobe in this video is great, this is when Aaliyah was becoming a little more sexier. She still managed to be tasteful as well. I kind of miss the days when female artists didn't have to be outrageously sexy in order to sell records.

This is my interpretation of the smokey eye and red lip she wore. Hope you enjoy!
