  • I prep her skin by using DERMAFLASH, which allows me to get the highest level of exfoliation plus remove unwanted peach fuzz so skin care products work ten times better.
  • I used Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm to decrease puffiness and hydrate eyes. Then I used the brand’s DermalQuench Liquid Lift and Quench Oil Free Hydrating Face Serum. Both of these products work together to plump, hydrate and give skin that superior radiant glow.
  • I applied Dior Airflash CC Primer to create an even canvas for makeup application. I love that is also has a radiance booster.
  • Next, I used Perfect Blend by Ashunta Sheriff in Tan to create a natural, glowing, contoured and lifted canvas.
  • Set everything with Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Banana, which is great for warm skin tones.

  • I wanted a soft rose glow affect so I used Taraji’s MAC Collection Highlight The Truth on the lid just tapping with my finger and using a MAC 266 angle brush on lower lash line for a soft smokey affect.
  • Then I added Taraji Glow, a coppery gold highlight in corner of the eyes and center of eyes so they popped.
  • I took her eyes to the next level with Cozzette Brushes and Eyeshadows.
  • I added Penultimate Eye Liner from Taraji’s MAC collection to give a tight precise line on the top lash line and then added two coats on top and bottom lashes with Haute and Naughty Tooo Black Lash Mascara.
  • I completed her eyes with Damone Roberts Minx Brow Pencil for brows.
  • Finishing Touches
  • For cheeks, I added a soft subtle warmth with Maybelline Crème Blush Stick and highlighted cheekbones with Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit
  • I lined her lips with MAC Cosmetics Plum Lip liner, adding MAC Cosmetics Amplified Lipstick and shining them with a touch of MAC Cosmetics Lipglass.
  • Finally, I set her pout with Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray, Sensitive Formula for Lips.
