I’ve been really excited to see “Jumping the Broom” since I first saw a trailer for the film a few months ago, so I’m looking forward to finally seeing if this weekend. I’m a fan of actress Paula Patton (and that handsome hubby of hers…) so I was glad to get the details on her beauty look for the film’s premier this week in LA. Read on as celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine (@SamFineBeauty) details how he created this gorgeous look:
Sam’s Inspiration for the look: It always begins with the dress! Once I saw the sheer, jewel encrusted neck and sheer sleeve of Paula’s dress, I felt that makeup should be fresh, yet defined, nothing that would compete with the drama of the dress!
SKIN: I began dabbing COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Concealer in Light directly underneath her eyes, closest to the lashline to highlight and conceal. Then, I used my fingers to apply COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Liquid Makeup to unify varied tones and give her skin a flawless, yet natural-looking finish. After applying foundation and setting with powder, I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection Natural Hue Mineral Bronzer in Light Bronze to add luminosity and dimension to the skin. I often suggest using bronzer as blush, but this time I opted for a pop of color using COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink.
EYES: I decided to go for a clean eye and well-defined eyebrow. Whenever I address brows, I always begin by using COVERGIRL Professional Natural Lash Clear Mascara to groom the brow and hold it in place. Then, I gently stroke pencil through the brow with a pencil a shade lighter than the hair, so it never looks drawn on. I played up Paula’s eyes using liner and lots of mascara. I used COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black to draw a fine line that wasn’t overly dramatic, then added a few coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara to upper lashes to make eyes appear “lifted”.
LIPS: Lastly, I chose COVERGIRL Queen Collection Lip Color in PowderPuff Pink to complete this feminine, fresh look.
Paula looks stunning, no? This look is really beautiful, but very easy (and inexpensive!) to recreate! Will you give this look a try? Will you be seeing “Jumping the Broom” this weekend?
