Reality show divas have definitely changed since the genre debuted, and no cast gets more glam than the ladies of VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ Throughout the show’s two seasons, fan favorite and former cast member Chrissy Lampkin showed off a gorgeously beat face that made brown girls swoon. Tekoa Hash, glam coordinator for the series, is responsible for the flawless makeup in every episode. The beauty maven gave us a detailed cheat sheet of the top products used on set. 

CHRISSY’S GO-TO: Chrissy's makeup is always flawless. She's a true brown girl, so you chocolate dolls should be happy to know that Tekoa used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation on her delicate skin.

STAY GLOSSY: The ladies keep their lips glossed with MAC Lip Conditioner SPF 15, C.O. Bigelow lip glosses, and MAC Lipglass in "Lychee Luxe". 

HANGOVER REMEDY: To cover dark circles and bags on a cast mate who's had a wild night, Tekoa uses MAKE UP FOR EVER 5 Camouflage Cream Palette. It’s a color corrector that masks all sins.

CONCEAL & GO:  Don’t you just love concealer? The cast wears "Lift Concealer" from MAKE UP FOR EVER

LASH OUT: When you’re in a rush and need to put on a set of false lashes, Tekoa says to use bonding weave glue, however, her top choice is DUO Eyelash Adhesive. It takes a little longer to apply, so set aside the time.

SET YOUR FACE: To set everyone’s makeup for several hours, Tekoa uses MAC Studio Fix Plus Spray

BLINK, BABY: To extend lashes, several coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara do the job. 

HIGHLIGHT HOW-TO: Though Tekoa says having a great skincare regimen helps the ladies achieve a fabulous glow, she often mixes moisturizer with a little bronzer to highlight skin.
