Issa Rae Beauty Breakdown 2019 Critics Choice Awards

The beautiful Issa Rae walked the Red Carpet at the 2019 Critic’s Choice Awards in stunning fashion and face. Wearing a Aliétte by Jason Rembert dress, Tamara Mellon shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, Issa was rocked the Red Carpet. Her makeup was done by Makeup Artist Joanna Simkin who  shared the scoop on how she created Issa’s gorgeous Red Carpet look.

Eyes: “I was inspired by Issa’s beautiful black dressed designed by her stylist and felt pressure to make sure her makeup looked extra gorgeous tonight. Her dressed was designed with various textures and I wanted to incorporate some contrasting textures into her look. I started by smoking some matte black shadow to her inner and outer eye corners. To intensify the black shade, I used the Defining Moment Eyeliner to further smoke out the color. I loved that COVERGIRL provided vibrant colors in a drugstore palette, I knew I wanted to bring some of those colors to her look. I then packed on the shimmery green shadow in the Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette to the center of her lid to draw attention to her eyes.”

Lips: “To balance out her bright eye shadow I decided on a lip closer to the nude range. I swiped the Idol Satin Lipstick in Undone all over her lips and blended the Idol Liquid Lipstick in Royalty to the center of her lips to bring in a subtle pop of pink to her nude lip. The satin and matte finishes of her lips help balance out her matte and shimmery eye in a way that gives her a more hydrated look opposed to being too matte or too shiny.”

Face: “It’s great that COVERGIRL was able to create an amazing shade range of foundations. The undertones suited Issa’s skin tone perfectly. I tied in the whole look by popping the purple-pinky shade in the Rose Rush Cheek Palette to give her complexion a livelier look to complement the black colors in her dress and eyes.”
