Actress Taraji P. Henson looked fabulous while attending the 2016 BET Awards. Her makeup artist, celebrity MUA Ashunta Sheriff gave us the inside deets on achieving her beauty look.

GET THE LOOK:

FACE:

Black Opal Flawless Concealer_Tan

Black Opal Flawless Perfecting Concealer in Tan was applied onto the under-eye area and brow bone to give a natural, clean lift to brows.

Black Opal Perfecting Primer Medium

I started with clean and moisturized skin before applying Black Opal True Color Perfecting Primer. I used a wedge sponge starting from the inner parts of the face, moving outward.

I then set her face with Black Opal Invisible Oil-Blocking Powder.

True Color Stick Foundation

Then, I applied Black Opal True Color Stick Foundation in Rich Caramel with a foundation brush only on areas that needed coverage to even out her complexion.

Basic CMYK

To contour and sculpt the face, I used Black Opal Color Splurge Eye Satin Matte duo in Bordeaux Bliss. Using a fluffy crease brush, the darker color softly contoured as the lighter shade created a soft lift on the tops of her cheekbones.

EYES:

I used the same Color Splurge Eye Satin Matte duo in Bordeaux Bliss, using the lighter shade on the lids and darker shade on the outer corner of the eyes to create a blended out, smoldering look.

Luxe Creme Eyeliner

With a thin liner brush, I created a cat winged eyeliner look with Black Opal Luxe Crème Liner in Onyx.

Black Opal Precision Eye Definer

To finish the look, brows were shaped and groomed with Black Opal Precision Eye Definer in Coffee Bean.
