Bellas! 2011 is bringing in some gorgeous new makeup to the drugstore, are you ready?
The Queen Collection has had a classy new makeover, and their new Queen Collection Lip Color lipsticks are swoon worthy! Moisturizing, smooth, rich, vibrant color in a wide range of shades. I just got some samples in the mail and it was love at first swipe.
Queen Latifah just hosted the People’s Choice Awards (according to MTV, she was great!), and I got the step-by-step breakdown from Cover Girl and her makeup artist D’Andre Michael. Just in case you were wondering. Take it away, D’Andre!
“Queen Latifah’s wardrobe for the show varied between Black, Hot Pink and Turquoise Blue so I wanted to give her a look that accentuated the eyes.
I started by using COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Compact Foundation in Golden Honey and set it with COVERGIRL 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.“
