Makeup Musts

Tia Dantzler
Celebrity makeup artist Tia Dantzler is well known among Hollywood hotties. This talented beauty maker has worked with former President Barack Obama, singer/actress Jennifer Hudson, big screen/television star Viola Davis and rapper Kanye West—just to name a few. Here, she breaks down a few of her stunning looks.



“I went all out to make sure singer Jennifer Hudson looked glamorous for the world premiere of Chi-Raq. When going for a bold lip you have to make sure the skin is absolutely flawless. So, I started with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for the base and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer to conceal. Then, I set the face with MAC Mineralized Skinfinish powder. I defined the brow with Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Pencil in Dark Brunette. Next, I used Smoke and Mirror Beauty lashes in Vegas and Mirror for maximum definition and followed with two coats of Benefit Cosmetics’ They’re Real! Mascara. For the lip I used IMAN luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Taboo.”



“For singer Lalah Hathaway’s look for The Steve Harvey Show I started with Becca Aqua Luminous Perfection Foundation, which I applied with a Beauty Blender sponge for a flawless finish. I highlighted the skin with Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter in Rivera and set everything with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. Then, I contoured her cheeks with Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit in Medium to Tan. Next, I used eye shadows from Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette in Golden Flower to add color to her eyes. To finish the look I used Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in #643 Everdior.


URBAN DECAY ALL-NIGHTER LONG LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY: “Absolutely love the Urban Decay All-Nighter makeup setting spray. It’s long lasting and can be used in different ways. Another good was to maximize this spray is by spraying the eyeshadow brush before picking up color for greater intensity.”
