Mo'Nique and Sam

Precious Premiere

“This is a golden, carved, sculpted face. I really wanted to accent her gorgeous dress and since she wore minimal jewelry I was able to play up the golden hues without overpowering her look. Plus, it still allowed her to look effortless.”

Face: “The key here is to layer [subtle] your bronzer and blush until it looks like a sculpted version of you. After finishing her base, I used a dark hued bronzer from the CoverGirl Queen, and then layered it with the Iman Sheer Finishing Bronzer in Afterglow, which contains a bronzer, blush and highlighter trio.”

Eyes: “This is a bleached brow – and no it doesn’t match her hair! I did this to allow her brows and eyes to really pop and stand out – again this goes back to being part of the ‘carved out’ look, and just allowed her to glow even more. I lined her eyes, and then used a beige liner – not a white liner because that would create too much of a contrast – on the inner rim of her lower lash line. The beige liner is much more subtle than white but still opens up the eye area. I then used golden hues on her lids, like Stila Eyeshadow in Twig ($18), and Nars Eyeshadow in Night Star ($22). Lashes are a must on the red carpet so of course I used false lashes! I fused her natural lashes and the falsies with L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara ($7.50) I finished the look by adding a touch of gold glitter on the inner corners of her eyes to offset her dress!”

Lips: “ I also used golden hues on the lips but took the same ‘layering’ approach like I did with the rest of the face. This means I used lip liner, lipstick and a golden gloss (try Dior Addict Ultra Gloss) to complete this look.”

  • Sam Fine creates magic! I love Monique because she wears her number one accessory on a regular basis…Confidence. She looks “fantabulous” no matter what. I love all of the make-up mentioned in the article. If any of you have not tried the Queen Collection and Iman’s make-up already, the colors are phenomenal! To me, NARS is one of the best eye shadows on the market because they go on so smooth and a little goes a long way.
