Fashion Bomb friend and celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez has created some of your favorite beauty looks for stunners like Beyonce, Solange, and Zoe Saldana.


One of the looks she’s recreated regularly for Solange is the signature “war stripe” Solo often sports across her eyes (she did the above one for Solange’s appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”). Below, Jackie gives us the *exclusive* scoop on how to paint it on yourself, along with recommended products for each step!
1. First: make sure to do your foundation. Recommended: Korres Organic Primer, MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation.


2. Contour, highlight, and, of course, bronze the face. Add a pop of light colored blush. Recommended: NARS Bronzing Powder in Casino, NARS Blush in Lovejoy.


3. Select a creamy eye makeup in any color. Using an angled eye makeup brush, apply it between the eyes. Start at the center of the nose as both a guide and to achieve a perfect line across the eyes. Make sure to go a little under the crease of the eye for a thin and sexy line! Recommended: MAC Paint Pot.


4. Once you’re done applying the cream color, take a liquid eyeliner and apply it as close to the lash line as possible. Recommended: Makeup Forever Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.


5. After the eyeliner dries, curl the lashes and add on 3 coats of mascara. Apply lash extensions for a fuller effect. Recommended: MAC #7 Lashes.


6. Finally, use a nude pencil to line the lips and apply sheer gloss to balance the look. Recommended: Korres Cherry Lipgloss in #37 (Golden Beige Shimmer).
