It’s safe to say that Serena Williams is winning. She won her first match at Indian Wells earlier this week (only to be bested by her sister, Venus, in the end, but it’s all good). She’s definitely winning at motherhood — have you seen her adorable daughter? — and now, after years in the spotlight, she’s still winning the red carpet beauty game.

It’s been reported by Blaq Vixen Beauty that one of her go-tos is Smashbox Lipstick in Splendid with Sephora Collection Lip Gloss in In the Buff, which looks exactly like the look she’s wearing here.
3. Rosy Blush
Sir John (who created Williams’ Met Gala 2017 look) told us that a little bit of well-placed blush is all you need to make your face come alive. Williams consistently relies on this trick to bring life to her visage, typically choosing a deep pink shade worn on the apples of her cheeks. Tip: …read more
