Kerry Hilson radiated with glowing skin and pretty pink makeup while attending the post BET Awards Show dinner. What’s great about this look is it works on our range of brown skin from French vanilla to chocolate deluxe (© Wu-Tang). Wanna steal her look? Read on!
1. After cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your face according to your skin type, cover any discoloration with a creamy concealer like BECCA Compact Concealer then set with powder (try Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder). It’s summer so you want coverage but don’t want anything too heavy.
2. For the eyes, apply an eyeshadow base like MAC Paint all over the lid. Then grab a shimmer pinky-coral eyeshadow like MAC Paradisco (try NYX Tropical if you’re a drugstore diva) and blend it onto the lid. Blend a matte eyeshadow about 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone on your brow bone. Line the eyes with a black waterproof pencil and apply 2-3 coats of mascara. For extra flair, apply corner lashes. To finish off the look apply a reddish plum shimmery shadow with an eyeliner brush like MAC #266 to the area right under the lower lash line.
3. Get a glow like Keri by dusting a mineral bronzer like Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Bronzer to the tops of the cheekbones and lightly across the temples. Add a touch of color to the cheeks with a coral blush like Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak.
4. Top it all off with a deep pink lipstick like Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Embrace. To keep your makeup put, spritz with a setting spray like Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Spray.
