COVERGIRL Celebrates 50 years with a Red Carpet Bash– and Celeb Models! Queen Latifah’s Look!

Last week COVERGIRL kicked off it’s 50th Anniversary with a red carpet bash in LA celebrating that every woman is a COVERGIRL.

All 5 of the COVERGIRLs came out for the event following the People’s Choice Awards (Ellen Degeneres, Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah and Dania Ramirez). There will be a beauty break-down each day this week. So check in every day for the look you want to see from these lovely ladies.

Queen Latifah – by Celebrity Makeup Artist D’Andre Michael


Queen Latifah

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.

Love that look and you too can get Queen Latifah’s gorgeous look by following the step by step breakdown!! Now hurry on down to your local drugstore or mass merchandise store to stock up on all these Covergirl products.
PS– tomorrow there is another look. Dania Ramirez!!
