While the rest of the world may just now be catching on to the force that is Cardi B, we’ve been tracking the rising star’s success for quite a while now. And while we know every word to Bodak Yellow, we’re equally as obsessed with Belcalis Almanzar’s, that’s her real name, beauty looks.
From the streets of New York to sitting front row at Fashion Week, the rapper has been slaying for years. Though 2017 propelled her into the limelight, she’s always taken risks with her beauty (and fashion) looks, and we are completely here for it.
In honor of Cardi’s, figuraive and litteral, glow up we’ve rounded up our favoite beauty looks, past and present.
