Makeup Musts

Lewina David

Lewina David has been commanding the beauty scene since 2011. The celebrity makeup artist, who was inspired by her fashion-forward mother, has created looks for Kat Graham, LaTavia Roberson and Salli Richardson-Whitfield. Her gorgeous work can be seen on television, in music videos, in countless campaigns and all over the red carpet.



“For The Real Housewivesof Atlanta star Kenya Moore, I used Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 550 Suede and William Tuttle Crème Foundation in Chocolate Cream to contour, and set it with CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Ebony Bronzer. I used MAC Woodwinked, Cork and Brown Down eyeshadow and her lashes were Mykonos Lilylashes. I lined her lips with MAC Cork Lip Pencil and went over it with CK One lipstick in #140 Undressed and Smashbox lipgloss.”



“For Chrisette Michele’s face I used Beauty For Real Cheek Tint & Luminizer in Goldrush/Afterglow cream highlighter, then primed her skin with Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-HR Perfecting Primer and Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer. I used Dior SkinForever in #050 Dark Beige for foundation and concealed with Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Natural and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Caramel.”


“For Black-ish cutie Yara Shahidi, I started with Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation in BD60. For her eyes, I blended Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours Copper, Plum and Smoke. To give her a “glow,” I used The Balm Cosmetics Mary Lou Manizer. I used Calvin Klein CK One Lipstick in #800 Brainiac and a nude lipgloss called #800 Trouble. To set everything, I used Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder and to complete the look, I applied Ardell #151 lashes and went over them with two coats of L’Oreal Carbon Black Mascara.”



MAKEUP MUST-HAVE: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder: “[This] sets your makeup beautifully. It’s so universal; it’s been my go-to for year and years. It can take your everyday makeup to red-carpet ready.”
