How-To: Kristi Yamaguchi's Champion Makeup Look

How-To: Kristi Yamaguchi's Champion Makeup Look


I haven't seen the iconic and friendly figure ice skater Kristi Yamaguchi for what seems like years, but she looked fantastic at last night's premiere of boxing flick The Hammer. We'll be seeing more of Kristi's moves in the future since she's appearing on Season 6 of Dancing with the Stars. If you're interested in recreating her fresh and clean makeup look at home, read more.


  • FACE: Begin by applying a light shade of creamy concealer under the eyes and to any visible red areas. Next, dust your face and jawline with a mineral foundation such as Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Powder Foundation for a flawless face. Then, gently blend a touch of brightener around your orbital bone to create that wide-eyed, angelic effect.
  • CHEEKS: Dusting an apricot blush on your cheeks and on the tip of your nose will add warmth to pale skin. Use a light hand (you don't want to over-do it) and skip bronzer.
  • EYES: Kristi's eyes are actually quite simple to achieve. Believe it or not, you can create this look with just three products. Start with a neutral shadow palette like Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio in Headshot. Use the base color all over the lid and then add the pinky tone to the area between the top of the lashes and the crease. Next, blend the soft brown shade in the crease, focusing on the outer corners of the eyes. Line your upper lashes only with a creamy black pencil such as Lorac Front Of The Line Waterproof Eyeliner and wing-tip the edges to make your eyes a little sexier. Lastly, apply two coats of black mascara to your top lashes and one coat to your bottom lashes.
  • LIPS: A sheer, brick/burnt sienna shade looks beautiful with a neutral face and neutral eyes. One of my favorites is Mind Game from the new Nars Exotica Collection. If you like, you can add a sheer red or a clear gloss on top for extra punch.
