Cardi B’s pregnancy announcement during her performance at the 2021 BET Awards truly had us shook, but that wasn’t the only thing. It’d be remiss not to discuss her glowing skin, so we really need her to drop that skincare routine—and STAT. Lucky for all of us, we got the scoop on the exact skincare products she used that night, and they’re majorly discounted at Ulta Beauty right now—but only for a few more days!
According to a press release SheKnows received, Cardi B’s makeup artist Erika La’ Pearl used Urban Skin Rx (all products she used are under $32!) to get the rapper’s skin prepped for her performance. “Tonight’s inspiration was about celebrating Cardi and her wonderful announcement of her second child,” La’ Pearl said. “Showing that as a woman, you can have it all – perform while pregnant and look beautiful. I wanted to create a look that enhanced her natural glow.”
While the products are already a steal at under $32, Ulta Beauty has a buy one, get one half off deal going on for the line through August 28th. So, you only have a few more days to get her glow for less.
Urban Skin Rx creates clinical products for diverse skin tones, which we’re all about. On top of that, it’s all at a wallet-friendly price point. Are we dreaming? Nope, so let’s get to it. Without further ado, Cardi B’s skincare routine from the 2021 BET Awards:
First, she cleansed her skin with the Resurfacing Vitamin C Cleansing Bar, which can help improve the look of uneven skin tone and dark marks. Next, she used the Even Tone Resurfacing At Home Peel Pads to help tighten pores and diminish fine lines. After that, she used the Radiant & Bright Glowing Moisturizer to lock in moisture. And lastly, she applied 4-6 drops of the Reti-Glow Gentle Resurfacing Night Oil, which gives dehydrated skin a boost—it also doubles as a makeup primer.
