I immediately needed to know more. Once the front of her dress was revealed, I couldn’t get enough of the supermodel’s makeup. I’ve been lucky enough to work with Maybelline New York so I reached out asking for more details about Jourdan’s sultry look created by Hila Karmand for Maybelline New York.
The makeup inspiration was a modern take on a futuristic look. Inspired by the hair gradient from grey to black on the shadow with a pop of color on the inner corner of the eye to reflect the dress.
Karmand applied Maybelline New York Master Prime in “Blur + Illuminate” all over Jourdan’s face to give her skin an even, beautiful canvas. Next, she mixed a moisturizer with Maybelline New York Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation in Coconut , making the skin look incredibly natural with a dewy finish. She applied Maybelline New York SuperStay 24HR Concealer to conceal any imperfections and also under the brow as a highlight.
Karmand highlighted Jourdan’s face and enhanced her eyes by contouring the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, bow of the lip, and the inner corner of the eyes using Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Contour Face Contouring Pro Palette. She then applied the blush from the same kit to the apples of the cheeks to create a shimmery wash of color that brightened up the face.
To create a gorgeous, soft smoky eye, Karmand started with Maybelline New York Eye Studio 24HR Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Audacious Asphalt all over the lid as a base. Karmand applied Maybelline New York Eye Studio 24HR Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Silver Strick in the inner corner of the eye, and then she used Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Drama in Midnight Master to define the eyes.
Using the silver eye shadow from the Maybelline New York The Rock Nudes Palette, she swept the shade all over the upper lid. From the outer corner, she applied the glittery charcoal color and blended it over the silver shadow until a well-blended gradient was created. Using a pointy pencil brush, the grey shadow was blended with the black liner on the lower lash line to create a smoldering smoky eye.
She finished with applying a generous amount of Maybelline New York The Falsies Pushup Drama Mascara on upper and lower lashes to create drama on the eyes.
Karmand filled in and shaped brows with Maybelline New York Brow Drama Pro Palette in Deep Brown. She then set them with Maybelline New York Eye Studio Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara.
Karmand completed Dunn’s look with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor in Totally Toffee, topped withMaybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Taupe for a high shine gloss with a soft wash of color.
