Every day is an opportunity to celebrate Black excellence, though NAACP Image Awards serve as a particularly glamorous platform for, as the historical organization says, "to celebrate the outstanding achievements and achievements of people of color in the arts, as well as the individuals or groups that promote social justice through their creative efforts." And while the Image Awards differ from other award shows with their specific mission, they also fit right into the awards show season with some of the most incredible hair and makeup looks you see throughout the year. (And it's only February!)
This year's entertainers nominated as Lizzo, Regina King and Billy Porter – who have already earned us some seriously wonderful looks this year at the Grammys and Oscars – bring even more beauty to the Image Awards tonight. Outstanding nominee actresses such as Cynthia Erivo and Lupita Nyong & # 39; o maintain their glowing reputation as red-carpet stunners. And Janelle Monae, Tracee Ellis Ross and Yara Shahidi continue to dazzle us with their bold self-expression through hair and makeup.
Here you will find our favorite beauty look seen by nominees, presenters and guests who have come to the NAACP Image Awards to celebrate some of the most amazing contributions to entertainment and culture.
