"Queen's wardrobe changes were my inspiration for her look," he said. "Since she had three changes I wanted to create a look that would suit all of her choices." Check out my gallery below to see how this cool- and warm-toned palette worked for the entertainer's various ensembles, and get the how-to at the link below.
To get the instructions just
- Eyes: Michael used MAC Eye Shadow in Brown Down ($14.50) right above the crease and under the lower lashes. "Doing this allows you to blend your darker shadows into a softer color," he said. Next, he applied Lancôme Eye Shadow in Garment Intense ($17) on the lids, blending it into the previously applied brown shadow. For depth and contrast, he used CoverGirl Outlast Eyeliner in Onyx ($6) on the inner bottom eyelid.
- Lips: Michael applied MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy ($14), a matte, deep-tone beige, as a base coat and lined Queen's lips with Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Deep ($24). "Be sure to rub lips together to blend your lip liner for a softer line," he advises. For luster and shine, Michael then added CoverGirl Lipslicks Lip Gloss in Cutie ($4).
- Cheeks: MAC's Blush in Sweet as Cocoa ($18), a shimmering pearly brown, was applied to accentuate the cheeks. For a subtle glow, he then added CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer ($18).
