Star of FOX’s hit TV series Empire, Taraji P. Henson, sported Milani Cosmetics on her appearance on last week’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! With its vast assortment of brilliantly beautiful cosmetics for the entire face, it’s no wonder celebrities and their makeup artists turn to Milani for makeup that lasts through long days and nights on set. See below for pro tips on how to get Taraji’s look from her makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, and how you can recreate the on-camera look.
“I started with clean moisturized and primed skin. I then used Milani Creme to Powder Foundation in Warm Honey, $8.99, to even out her complexion and create a flawless template. I used Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream in Golden Beige, $5.19, under the eye area and to clean up any lipstick bleeding around the corners of the mouth. I then softly contoured her cheeks with the Deep Tan shade of the Secret Cover Concealer Cream; by following the natural bone structure of her face we give a great contour which looks chiseled and sleek. I took the same product and slightly contoured her nose using my fingers until it blended in.
I applied the Rose Powder Blush in American Beauty Rose, $7.99, to the apples of her cheeks and used the Baked Blush in Dolce Pink, $8.49, for strobing, which is a technique that mimics what light naturally does.”
“For the eyes, I started with the Eye Shadow Primer and then opted for the Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eye Liner since we wanted to keep the look simple, yet sleek and fashion forward. I lined the lower lash line on the water mark with the Supreme Kohl Kajal Eyeliner and then applied the Runway Lashes and Total Lash Cover Mascara to provide volume, and define, build and curl lashes.”
“I kept Taraji’s brows natural with the brand’s new Stay Put Brow Color, $6.99, in Brunette. I used the angled brow brush following her natural shape to define and sculpt without looking overdrawn. I also love the Brow Shaping Clear Wax, $4.49, for creating molded brows that stay on all day even through the hot lights of filming for television. I finished the look with Milani’s new Amore Matte Lip Crème, $8.99, which worked amazing with Taraji’s skin tone.”
