Jourdan Dunn’s Inspiration: Porsche Cooper, celebrity makeup artist for Maybelline, wanted to give Jourdan a sexy and smoldering smoky eye look to bring the attention to her gorgeous eyes, especially with her hair styled away from her face. “
Breakdown For Face: Cooper wanted Jourdan’s skin to glow and reflect light to showcase her healthy skin, so she applied moisturizer to her face and décolletage, followed by Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Prime in Blur + Illuminate. She then brushed on Maybelline New York Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth Foundation and applied Maybelline New York SuperStay Better Skin Concealer as needed, to ensure Jourdan’s skin stayed flawless all night.
Contour and Cheeks: To accentuate Jourdan’s cheekbones, Cooper contoured with the Maybelline New York Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick, and applied Maybelline New York Fit Me! Blush in Deep Coral to the apple of her cheeks.
Eyes: Cooper thought it best for Jourdan’s eyes to be tinted with color, to give contrast to her white gown, so she applied Maybelline New York Master Prime Long Lasting Shadow Base in Prime + Illuminate to her eyelids, followed by the dark plum eyeshadow from Maybelline New York The Blushed Nudes Palette in Nude from her lid to crease. She then blended the lightest shade from the palette under the arch of her eyebrows and the inner corner of her eyes, to reflect light and make Jourdan’s eyes shine. Cooper then smudged Maybelline New York EyeStudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Sleek Onyx on Jourdan’s lash line to give a smoldering look. Jourdan loves dramatic lashes, so the eyes were finished with layers of Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara in Black Pearl.
Brows: Jourdan’s brows were filled in with the powder from the Maybelline New York Brow Drama Pro Palette, and defined with the wax applied by the accompanied angled brush.
Lips: Because the eyes were the focus feature, Cooper wanted the lips to compliment but not compete, so she completed the beauty look with the new Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color The Loaded Bolds in Gone Griege. *
