Original, trendy and inspiring, Zendaya has everything going for her! Here’s how to recreate the makeup she wore at the most recent GLAAD gala.
For this smoky, modern look, you’ll want to focus on your eyes to get diffused, smoldering results. If you need to, don’t be afraid to use a setting spray. Psst! It’s best to apply foundation after you finished with your eyes in case you get dark powder on your cheeks.
Start by applying a neutral shade on your entire eyelid and under the eyebrow arch. You want to create a tone-on-tone base that will conceal imperfections and make it easier to apply darker colours.
With a mid-tone colour, define the crease of your eye with a blending brush. This shade will produce a gradual transition between the darker colour on your eyelid and the rest of your eyes. For a lifting effect, you can even slightly extend the colour to the outer corner of your eye, just like a cat eye.
Use a flat brush to apply carbon eyeshadow on your upper eyelid. Do not go beyond your eye crease because you want to blend this darker shade with the one you applied in the previous step.
The last step for scintillating eyes? Several layers of your favourite mascara!
Zendaya loves well-defined and structured eyebrows. Make sure your arches are flawless by redefining the outer tip. You can even make them darker for maximum impact.
Once you’ve applied your foundation as you normally would, you can boost your lips with a rich, creamy flesh-coloured balm. This will help your lips shine without stealing the spotlight away from your smouldering eyes.
