Taraji P. Henson at the Oscars Get The Look


MAKEUP AND SKIN BY:  Ashunta Sheriff

INSPIRATION: “Taraji is a firm believer in 'less is more' so we didn’t want to over complicate or overthink anything. What we were looking for is glamour. It’s old Hollywood with a modern twist.”

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: Using a mitt, Sheriff swept a layer of the St. Tropez Luxe Dry Oil, covering the body in a gorgeous, bronzy sheen that would keep her skin hydrated and flawless. For added definition, she sprayed the St. Tropez Dark Bronzing Mist just along the natural contours of her legs and arms for added definition. Sherriff also contoured Taraji’s face using St. Tropez 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder, sculpting her cheekbones and jawline. Later, once Taraji was dressed and ready to hit the carpet, Sheriff added NEW St. Tropez One Night Only Finishing Gloss onto her d√©colletage, arms, and legs to ensure every inch of skin that was showing would be absolutely glowing.

ADDITIONAL TIPS: Perfect Blend by Ashunta Sheriff Beauty in Tan was applied using the dual ended brush for a smooth and flawless coverage. Sheriff added a little more lift with MAC mineralized concealer in NC40 under Eye area and on brow bone. Then, she set makeup with Dermablend Oil Control Blotting powder using Surratt Beauty Powder Brush. Sheriff opted opted for Glossier Blush in Dusk then applied Enlighten by Danessa Myricks in Halo on Taraji's cheekbones. For her eyes, Sheriff based the lid with Urban Decay Eye Primer then used a navy Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil to line her eyes on both top and bottom lash line making a thick line then feathering out with a Surratt Beauty blending brush for a sultry smoke. She then used Urban Decay Smokey Eye palette, blending black in the crease then the dark brown on top to soften the edges. Then she applied House of Lashes Iconic lashes with Duo Black Adhesive fand used one coat of MAC Waterproof Mascara on Taraji's bottom lashes. Next, she added NYX Shimmerball Eyeshadow in Salmon on Center of eyes and in the inner corner of the eyes. She used Damone Roberts brow pencil in Minx to define her brows. For her lips, Sheriff lined them with MAC Cork Lip Pencil and used Surratt Beauty in Vivacious Pink. Danessa Myricks Enlighten in Halo was added to Taraji's collarbone and shoulders for an extra highlight.
