Want to get the royal treatment? Makeup artist D’Andre Michael created Queen Latifah’s soft and sexy look for the Oscars, and now he's giving us the breakdown on how to re-create it at home.
To bring attention to Queen's eyes, Michael applied CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plume ($8) on the entire lid. He then placed CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke ($8) in the inner crease, blending up on the brow bone. After waterlining the rim of her bottom lid with black eyeliner, he finished the eyes with a coat of black waterproof mascara.
For Queen Latifah’s lips, Michael began with a base coat of MAC Lipstick in Midimauve ($14), then lined her lips with Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Deep ($24). A coat of CoverGirl ShineBlast Lip Gloss in Ablaze ($8.50) added shine. To complete the look, he swept Cargo Blush in Siena ($22) on the apples of her cheeks.
