Her shade of blonde she donned this evening has a subtle touch of pastel pink. This cotton candy blonde hue is such a vibe. So Camp.

We're lucky that Kaling is quick on her 'Gram game tonight because she JUST posted a photo revealing her uber talented glam squad.

This hair was flawlessly executed by Marc Mena. Okay, fine, we know it's a wig—obvi. But I'm hoping the blonde comes out to play even more this summer. Her makeup is shimmery and neutral to complement her deep skin tone. Her face was slayed by celebrity makeup artist Janice Kinjo using Burt's Bees products. Kaling is serving, hunny!
