Celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine perfected Paula Patton’s beautiful face at the premier of Jumping the Broom. Here is Sam’s step-by-step instructions to recreate Paula’s look for the premiere.
Inspiration for the look: It always begins with the dress! Once I saw the sheer, jewel encrusted neck and sheer sleeve of Paula’s dress, I felt that makeup should be fresh, yet defined, nothing that would compete with the drama of the dress!
SKIN: I began dabbing COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in Light directly underneath her eyes, closest to the lashline to highlight and conceal. Then, I used my fingers to apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Liquid Makeup to unify varied tones and give her skin a flawless, yet natural-looking finish. After applying foundation and setting with powder, I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Mineral Bronzer in Light Bronze to add luminosity and dimension to the skin. I often suggest using bronzer as blush, but this time I opted for a pop of color using COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink.
EYES: I decided to go for a clean eye and well-defined eyebrow. Whenever I address brows, I always begin by using COVERGIRL Professional Natural Lash Clear Mascara to groom the brow and hold it in place. Then, I gently stroke pencil through the brow with a pencil a shade lighter than the hair, so it never looks drawn on. I played up Paula’s eyes using liner and lots of mascara. I used COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black to draw a fine line that wasn’t overly dramatic, then added a few coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara to upper lashes to make eyes appear “lifted”.
LIPS: Lastly, I chose COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in PowderPuff Pink to complete this feminine, fresh look.
This look is perfect whether you’re going to work or walking the red carpet! Beautiful glowing skin, a well-groomed brow, tons of mascara and a luscious lip are basic… yet very beautiful!
