Beauty Bomb: Serena Williams’s 2017 Glamour Women of the Year Awards Flawless Makeup

Rumors are swirling that Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian are getting married in NOLA today! And based on her flawless makeup at the 2017 Glamour Women of the Year Awards this week, we are giddy with excitement to see which beauty look she chooses.

At the awards show on Monday night, she was fierce in a black and gold, curve-hugging Versace dress and eye-catching high ponytail. Renny Vasquez then contributed to her makeup. “I adore working with Serena—she is a beautiful person inside and out,” he stated. “Knowing this was her first red carpet appearance since giving birth, I wanted to make sure she felt, and looked, simply amazing. I used Black/Opal makeup to create a natural-looking, yet elegantly sculpted look that complemented her high ponytail and black Versace dress.”

Here, all Renny’s steps & products to achieve Serena’s look for the holidays!

1. On freshly cleansed and moisturized skin, Renny applied Black Opal True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation in Black Walnut. Starting at the center of Serena’s face, he blended outward first with fingers and then used a moist blending sponge to create a smooth, even finish.

2. Renny then used the best-selling Black Opal True Color Skin Perfecting Stick Foundation in three different shades: Hazelnut and Heavenly Honey to highlight, and Ebony Brown to contour. Renny applied the lighter shades—Hazelnut & Heavenly Honey—under her eyes, to her forehead, cupid’s bow. He contoured and accentuated her cheekbones using Ebony Brown.

3. Lastly, to set her makeup and to ensure extended wear, Renny applied Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Loose Powder to control oil and prevent shine. He dusted the powder lightly all-over and applied an extra layer to her T-zone area.
