Jazmine Sullivan’s strong voice, raw lyrics, and classic sense of style makes her one of today’s most relatable artists. After a brief hiatus from the limelight, the singer reintroduced herself with her most recent EP Heaux Tales. Since then, she appeared on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk, performed at the Super Bowl Kick-Off show and NAACP Image Awards and now she’s bringing her act to this year’s Urban One Honors award show on May 16. And we’re anticipating a fabulous ensemble to go with it.
Jazmine has been out and about flaunting a new kind of confidence. Every now and then she’ll do a casual flex in her Savage X Fenty garments, or give us vintage glam during her performances. When it comes to beauty, the singer has adopted small signature elements that have become a staple in her looks. Jazmine’s love for exaggerated Twiggy-style eyelashes and vintage glam takes her entire persona to the next level. If you haven’t noticed, she’s been giving us a modern-day version of the Supremes, with the voice to match.
“I love the clothing and the styling from the sixties,” said Jazmine while promoting her participation in this year’s Urban One Honors. ” I love the makeup looks and the hair and the flips. I felt like people were doing that a little bit even now. And I just wanted to try it and I fell in love with the aesthetic. I get excited to kind of go and do things for my different periods and stuff. And that’s the one right now.”
Here’s 5 times she gave us retro beauty vibes.

5. JAZMINE SULLIVAN FOR VULTURE, 2021
Jazmine Sullivan gave an alluring gaze in an article for Vulture. This simple glam look relied mostly on her bold, sultry lashes. I would love to pick the brain of her makeup artist to find out the inspiration behind each lash look. So far, Jazmine is the only artist I’ve seen make a continuous style statement through eyelashes!
