We were first introduced to Tika on the soap opera “One Life to Live” but the talented, statuesque stunner has recently been making waves in the media industry with roles on “Gossip Girl,” “The Game,” Sparkle and BET’s upcoming sitcom “Being Mary Jane.”

From soft braids and lavender lips to curls and coral gloss, Tika is a hair and makeup chameleon who never disappoints. Scroll down to see Tika’s 5 best beauty moments:

Tika Sumpter pink lips
Where do we start with this look? Is it the expertly executed cat eye? The gorgeous lavender lipstick? The “glow from within”? The snatched brows? We love it all.

Tika Sumpter red lips

Ms. Tika is serving serious glamour with this one. She pairs a bold, black smoky eye with red lips for a look that’s fierce yet balanced.

Tika blue liner

Tika paired a pretty pop of color on her eyes with peachy cheeks and a nude lip. The sparkling blue liner is refreshing and chic while her side braid adds a subtly sexy touch.

Tika Sumpter curly hair
Although her glossy coral lips and graphic cat eye are gorgeous, the curls and golden tips definitely steal the show.

Tika Sumpter natural look
Tika’s black liner, rosy cheeks and pink gloss look pretty and polished without being too over the top.

    She is gorgeous. I would love to know how long it took y’all to narrow it down to only 5 looks lol

    I LOVE looks one and two! But she is stunning every time I see her!

  • LadyP

    All of Tika’s looks are beautiful, but the first one with the goddness braid is simply stunning. Nice pics! They truly reflect the beauty of a woman when she can wear her hair in different styles, long or short, curly or straight. .

    I been a fan of Tika Sumpter when she was one half of the Williamson’s sisters on the soap One Life to Live (shout out to Renne Elise Goldsberry who played Evangeline Williamson, someone need to hired that sista she is gorgeous too!) But I love the first picture she was simply radiant in that shot.

    see, now here is a dark-skinned woman whose make-up looks I can emulate.

  • Jessica

    I never watched OLTL, but I came across fan videos of Evangeline & Christian and enjoyed the scenes! Unfortunately Renne was off the show when I learned about their story line.
    Goldsberry has had a few scenes on ‘The Good Wife” for a couple of seasons…but they’re very small. I hope she finds something where she can have WAY more screen time.

    I became aware of Tika on Gossip Girl and loved her! I hope she continues to have an amazing acting career
