The beautiful face of Dania Ramirez was tended to by Celebrity Makeup Artist Matthew VanLeeuwen for the evening of the COVERGIRL 50th Anniversary party.
Dania’s makeup inspiration was a twist on a classic beauty look. She called me earlier that day to tell me she was in love with her dress and thought she wanted a red lip, which I totally agreed with once I saw her outfit. We stuck with a fairly clean, pale lid and sculpted brows, but I also wanted to add a little gold to the eyes in honor of COVERGIRL’s 50th Anniversary.
To start, I prepped the skin with a light moisturizer and then applied COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Serum Primer. I then used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Foundation in Nutmeg which gave her perfectly polished skin with a luxurious finish.
On her eyes, I applied COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Citrus Flair, using the green color on the lid and the bronze color in the crease and then darkened the outside of the eye with COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire. I created a minimal line to define the eye with COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast in Black Fire and finished with a few coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara in Black.
On her lips, I created a strong, glamorous red lip with COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick in Hot.
Lastly, I applied COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Blush in Plush Peach on the apples of her cheeks to balance out the look. It is really important to create a natural looking balance on the skin especially when working with a bright red lip. I finished it off by setting her face with a light dusting of COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Tawny.
