Hi Beautiful Friends!
I created a natural everyday makeup look on my gorgeous model Nicole. My model has similar features to Rihanna as you will see in the video. Rihanna’s makeup always looks so flawless and pretty, ok I will say she has her ‘moments’ of trying different looks but her makeup artist always gets it right with her skin. I love how Rihanna always pulls off just about any lip color. I kept Nicole’s makeup very neutral using lots of blush pinky tones. This is a great look if you are a bride or going to a special occasion now that the weather is warming up! For darker toned skin it’s very important to get the skin tone right. I love Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk in #10 as it has a built in corrector color. The orange in the foundation really warmed up her skin, keeping the skin looking like skin. I also love to use a corrector color concealer under the eyes and around the nose area. I don’t like to go too light in those areas, it should blend well with the foundation color making her eyes look bright and warm. Nicole didn’t have too much to conceal, so I used a liquid concealer. I will always use a more creamy concealer if someone has darker circles as this gives more coverage. I love also using natural strip or individual eyelashes for an everyday makeup look. To create a natural look, the eyelashes need to be soft and flexible at the base and it’s important not to have them too long as then it will start to look too dramatic.
