Queen Latifah for COVERGIRL 50th Anniversary.

In celebration of it's 50th Anniversary, Queen Latifah rocked the night away at the COVERGIRL party, but first hosted the People's Choice Awards. Her makeup look was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist D’Andre Michael.

Queen Latifah’s wardrobe for the show varied between Black, Hot Pink and Turquoise Blue so I wanted to give here a look that accentuated the eyes.

I started by using COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation in Golden Honey and set it with COVEGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Pressed Powder in Brown Bronze 1.

For the eyes, I started by applying COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Onyx Smoke (black color) on eyelid and under the lower lash.  Doing this allows you to blend your darker shadows into a softer color.  I then used COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Black Tie over the Onyx Smoke and blended it above the crease of the lid.  I did this to intensify the color and set the Smoky ShadowBlast. I lined the inner bottom eyelid for depth with COVERGIRL LiquiLineBlast in Black Fire.  To finish the eyes I applied 2 coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara in Very Black.

For Queen’s lips, I offset the smokey eye with a lavender lip gloss. Try COVERGIRL ShineBlast in Dazzle. By doing lighter colored lips, this allows her eyes would stand out.

I accentuated Queen’s cheeks with a light powder blush to add a hint of color and tone.  To complete Queen’s overall look I brushed COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Brown Bronze for a soft and subtle glow.
