Makeup artist Erika La’ Pearl has become an indelible part of Cardi B’s glam team, creating gorgeous looks for everything from award shows to music videos. So it’s no surprise that Cardi called on her for one of the most important moments in her pregnancy: her baby shower.
Although Tuesday night’s flower-packed shower took place in Atlanta, the theme was “A Bronx Fairytale,” with symbols of the New York City borough — from street signs to subway trains to a “baby bodega” — displayed from wall to wall in shades of pink. Cardi was a vision in pink, as well, wearing a sleeveless, floor-length, pale blush dress, which worked perfectly with the rosy makeup look created by La’ Pearl with all Marc Jacobs Beauty products.
“Makeup by me on my flawless boo @iamcardib,” La’ Pearl wrote on Instagram, captioning a photo of Cardi and her husband, rapper Offset. “I used everything from @marcbeauty to create this flawless look! I wanted to go with the theme of her party that’s why I did a soft pink Smokey eyes on her since she’s having a girl.”

That eye look started with the pink shade She Said from the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene followed by the brown shades Covets and For More. La’ Pearl then applied the Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer for Cardi’s signature cat-eye look.
Before Cardi’s dramatic lids, La’ Pearl started by giving her face a flawless finish with Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation SPF 25, which she says “is everything!” Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy and O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan in Tan-Tastic gave her an incredible glow, while Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in Kink & Kisses kept the pink motif going.

After Cardi’s face was set with Finish Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder, two lip products were used to create her nude-toned lips: (P)outliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil in Oh Cocoa and Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in J’Adore.
It’s been widely speculated that Cardi B is due in early July, so it shouldn’t be long before we see if she brings La’ Pearl into the delivery room to get glammed up for meeting her little one.
