Makeup artist Jessica Smalls shares every detail for re-creating Janelle Monae's Golden Globes' look! Monae was styled by 2019 Hollywood Beauty Awards Styling Nominee Alexandra Mandelkorn.
“This look is all about glowy, heavenly skin with a touch of Egyptian-Glam” – Jessica Smalls for Giorgio Armani
GET THE LOOK:
COMPLEXION: To make Janelle’s skin look heavenly, Jessica gave her a divine glow by massaging a nickel size amount of Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm all over her face, neck and shoulders. To ensure a long lasting and flawless foundation application, she primed her skin with the Fluid Master Primer and moved on to foundation. Using a damp sponge, she applied Luminous Silk Foundation in 13 from her nose and blended the makeup upwards and outwards. Next, she used Neo Nude Compact Powder Foundation in 14 as a bronzer to softly accentuate the gorgeous contours of Janelle’s face. For blush, she made Janelle give a big smile and applied Neo Nude A-Blush in 50 to the apples of her cheek and dabbed a bit of Neo Nude A-Highlight in 11 on top for that divine glow.
EYES: For the eyes, Jessica applied Eye Tint Eyeshadow in 12 to Janelle’s eye lids as a shadow primer and then used a soft bronze from the Eyes To Kill Eye Quattro Eyeshadow in 2 Avant-Premiere all over as well. Next, using the Eyes to Kill Eye Quattro Eyeshadow in 8 Festival, she applied a rust color in her crease and a deep brown on the outer corners to define Janelle’s eye shape. She then used a shimmery gold and applied it to the remainder of her lid for a gorgeous gold shine. Next, she lined the water line and upper lash line with the Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in black and created a subtle Egyptian winged line. She finished off her eyes off by coating the lashes with Black Ecstasy Mascara.
LIPS: Jessica filled Janelle’s lips in with the Rouge D’Armani Matte Lipstick in 102, Androgino and a swipe of Ecstasy Lacquer Liquid Lipstick in 502 Boudoir.
