  1. Skin Preparation – Before applying makeup, it’s important to moisturize and protect. My favorite moisturizer is RX for Brown Skin Essential Hydration moisturizing cream. It is the perfect primer because it hydrates and leaves the skin soft without leaving it oily. Next I apply RX for Brown Skin Age Block AV Shield with SPF 15 to protect the skin while on red carpet during the day ala Oscars. 
  2. My next step is to apply foundation. I use Lancome teint vetra in 510 suedec. Dust with a hi def translucent powder to set the foundation.
  3. I like to keep the eye more natural with a nude shadow and a light gold shimmer in bronze by MAC. Add a pair of lashes and line with a black eyeliner in Fluidline by MAC. Smudge a dark brown shadow in Smut on the outer corner of the eyes along the lash line. 
  4. The cheeks are next and I lightly dust with Fever by MAC. It’s better to have less rather than too much. It can change the direction of your look drastically.
  5. Finally, the lips finish the look. Line with a wine color in Storm from Fashion Fair. Finish with Fashion Fair’s lipstick, Earth Red.
