Makeup Musts

Darya Latham
Pro celebrity makeup artist Darya Latham is a true artist! Her work has appeared in countless magazines and she’s glammed stars like Vivica A. Fox, Missy Elliot and Kandi Burruss. Meet her here and take a look at just how fierce her glam game can be.

“For this eye look on singer/reality TV star Kandi Burruss, I wasn’t really sure what the look was going to be and she went through a few outfits. So, I used a Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid eyeshadow as a pop on the lid. I also wanted the skin to glow, so I used shimmering primer from Temptu under the Black Opal Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation.”

“This look on singer Kandi Burruss was for a daytime television appearance so I wanted something neutral with a subtle pop. I started with MAC Paint Pot applied over concealer on her lids so it can give an opaque finish. Then, I blended that out before going in with a deeper color in the crease I used so many shadow colors but all are in the same family—which gives my looks more dimension. On brows I like to use powder and then finished the eyes with a Stila liquid liner.”

“Media mogul Mona Scott-Young wanted an evening look with a hint of color so I opted for teal and blue tones from the BH Cosmetics Zodiac palette. In the crease I used a light cranberry shade from a Morphe palette and “smoked” the whole look out with a dark blue. I lined her eye with the Stila pencil and then I used Mink lashes from Bold Lashes. Her lips are Fenty Beauty over a neutral liner.”

STILA GLITTER & GLOW LIQUID AND SHIMMER & GLOW LIQUID EYE SHADOWS: “Some of it is just like a shimmer and the others are glitter. I feel like they are very pigmented, I love the fact that they’re waterproof, once they set on the eye they don’t move and you have that look the whole day without any fallout.”
