The Makeup How-Tos You Need To Score Her Look!

For one of Hollywood’s biggest nights, COVERGIRL Janelle Monáe showcased a gorgeous natural beauty look in support of her two Best Picture-nominated films, Hidden Figures and Moonlight. Janelle stunned in a larger-than-life Elie Saab Haute Couture gown with a beauty look that was all about the details—starting with bold lashes and balancing it out with a muted peach lip. Here, celebrity makeup artist Jessica Smalls divulges the beauty details about Janelle’s stunning Academy Awards makeup:

Soft Peachy Lips: “I wanted to keep Janelle’s lip look soft with a peach toned nude lip, I started by lining and filling in her lips with COVERGIRL LipPerfection Liner in Smoky and then applied a swipe of COVERGIRL All Day Color & Gloss in Profound Peach to give a muted touch of color that would last throughout the entire award show”

For an all over glow: “For a bronze goddess look I took some COVERGIRL truBlend Bronzer in Bronze and mixed it in into her moisturizer to prep her skin, this added a bit of shimmer and all over color. Once her look was complete, I defined her cheeks a bit more by blending COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Ebony Bronze to intensify the glow.”
