Drawing inspiration from Hollywood starlets of the '40s and '50s, makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff offered a dramatically glamorous red-carpet look for Alicia Keys. Keeping classic stars like Veronica Lake and Lena Horne in mind, she went for sultry eyes and strong brows on luminous skin. Get started with the following steps:
- Skin: Prep with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold capsules to add hydration and a radiant glow to skin then follow up with Pure Finish Mineral Powder 5. Lastly, contour face with CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer (in Light Bronze) as desired.
- Eyes: Mask under-eye circles with Mary Kay Concealer (in Beige 2). Highlight eyes with Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil and add Shu Uemura Smoky Layers Lashes for extra drama.

- Brows: Highlight brows with a brown Dior Eyebrow Pencil before softening with Dior Brow Gel (in shiny blonde).
- Lips: Plump up lips with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump Perfect Lip Moisture. Line with raspberry Mary Kay Lip Liner before filling in the entire lips with this pencil for lasting color. Top it all off with the pink Mary Kay Fleur De Polynesie.
