For the 2016 VMAs in New York City, celebrity makeup artist extraordinaire and cosmetic genius, Andrew Sotomayor, used Hard Candy cosmetics to create the red carpet beauty look for "Saturday Night Live" star Sasheer Zamata.

"For Sasheer's VMA's look, I wanted a glam look that was rock and roll without going grunge. Rather than trying to match her makeup to her outfit, I used face, eye, and lip colors that played up her natural coloring but would still pop on the red carpet," said Andrew. "On her skin, I used the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Makeup Drops.  Unlike traditional foundation, these liquid pigments are dense so that a little goes a long way offering enough coverage.  To play off the matte texture of her outfit, we chose to keep her lips matte with a saturated brown plum lip paint."

"For her eyes, I used the Top Ten Eye Shadow Collection in Naturally Gorgeous," he said. "To make these metallic's really shine, I prepped her lids using a gold eye pencil as a shadow base, then an ombre of bronze, copper and gold shades on the lid, with the darkest color on the outer corner and the lightest color on the inner."
