As Empire gears up for a much anticipated fourth season, Taraji. P. Henson debuted a FIERCE new look at the show’s season premier last night. Her signature flawless skin was downright iridescent as she stepped out with a trendy new hairstyle to show off her statement ear candy – #WANT.
Taraji’s go-to makeup guru, Ashunta Sheriff shares how to capture her lit-from-within glow:
I always start with clean skin and I love using NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Cleanser to begin so pores are really clean.
I then used MAC Vibrancy Eye Cream, Strobe Creme in Pink Lite, Prep and Prime and Lip Conditioner to prep and condition her skin.
I used MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC45 all over and MAC Mineralize Concealer in NC30 in her t-zone to create a subtle lift.
I contoured and sculpted cheekbones and nose with Film Noir Matte Blush.
Then I popped checks with wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blush and added a high watt ‘POW’ on cheekbones with Mineralization Skin Finish in Gold Deposit. I added Soft Focus on top for an alien luminescent glow.
Finally, I set look with MAC Prep + Prime Finishing Powder using a large powder brush and Setting Spray for a night full of carpets and cameras to hydrate skin and give it a fresh look.
