My last makeup look for the summer! Browsing through Instagram and the first makeup artist that I ever started paying attention to, Sam Fine, posted this look that he had done on Queen Latifah.
Sam Fine’s book was the first one that I bought years ago, even before I bought Kevyn Aucoin’s book. Who is this black guy doing beautiful makeup? Sam has been working with Queen Latifah for years, on numerous campaigns and photoshoots and I just love the Queen. A true, true pioneer in the rap game and I love that she can go hard in the ring with any dude and in the next step, be very feminine.
Anyway, Sam posted this photo of the Queen that was shot by Annie Liebowitz and I was in love! Super bronzed and sunkissed. In this video tutorial, I will show you how I achieved this look, that is really just about the skin and giving it that glow. This would be great all year round even when it is cold. As a dark skinned woman, colder weather leaves me looking dull and ashy. So some extra glow is no problem for me. If you have oilier skin, you can tone down the amount of glow by putting it in select places, like the top of the cheekbones.
So here is the look and the tutorial that will take you from summer right through to the end of the year!
