Gabrielle Union, 42, seriously never ages! She looked flawless at the BET Awards, held in Los Angeles, Calif. on June 28. Her makeup artist is spilling the exact breakdown of her makeup — and you can get her exact smokey eye palette for $16 and her exact lip color for $11!
Celebrity Makeup Artist Fiona Stiles created Gabrielle’s sexy smokey eye look. Here is the exact breakdown:
“After I prepped Gabrielle’s skin, I used Laura Mercier Foundation Powder to sculpt Gabrielle’s features; the lightest shade in the center of the face, the medium shade on the cheeks and the darkest shade around the outside of her face to create depth and dimension.
For her cheeks, we went with a warm deep sun-kissed bronze since there was such focus on her eyes and lips. In small circles on the apples of her cheeks, I swept on Guerlain’s Terracotta blush #7, giving a soft warmth to the face.
Before starting her eyes, I sculpted her brows using the Surratt Expressioniste Brow Pencil in Raven. After that I patted on the darkest navy color in the mark. On The Dot Smokey Palette for a deep sultry eye, gently blending the color up towards her brow bone. After that I used the mark. What A Line Max Waterproof Liquid Liner in Blackest Black to add some drama by painting on an elongated cat eye that extended into the inner corners. Two coats of the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes in extra black framed the eyes perfectly.
We went with a deep berry pout using a combination of lip liner, a lipstick and a glossy high shin lip color. First I outlined the lips using the Clinique Quickline pencil in Chili, followed by mark. Lipclick Lipstick in Whiney then adding a touch of the mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Razzamatazz to add a touch of brightness to the center of the lip. Then I very lightly dusted the lips with translucent powder to set the color.”
