Tika’s dress was a form-fitting metallic silver Herve Leger bandage dress, so we wanted to complement the dress with a sexy and sultry makeup look.
On her face, I created glowing skin by first using COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in 2 different shades, Light and Terra, to both conceal and brighten areas of her face.
I then applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation, using a slightly lighter shade in the middle of her face and darker on the outside for a 3-D effect. I then applied COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Mineral Bronzer in Brown Bronze in a 3-shape motion along each side of her face to contour. Don’t forget to bring the bronzer down into your neck to balance the color in your face!
I finished her glowing skin by adding COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Sculpting Blushin Lush Berry on the apples of her cheeks and blending outward with a synthetic brush.
To create Tika’s sultry smoky eye, I first applied Intense COVERGIRL ShadowBlast in Brown Bling along the entire lid to add a subtle shimmer and prime the eye for the rest of the shadow.
I then applied the lighter end of COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky along the lid and the white end of Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke in the inner corner.
I then took the black end of Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke on the lid and into the crease for a more dramatic effect. To amp up the drama even more, I lined her eyes with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast in Black Fire and and blended that up into the shadow, creating a v-shape with a brush to blend it all together.
I finished her eyes by adding some false lashes and 4 coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume in Black, perfect bold eyes for the red carpet!
To balance her dramatic eyes, I wanted to create a pinky-nude lip, so I lined her lips with COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipliner in Sublime and filled in her lips with COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in Penelope Pink.
