First Step: Be Naomi Campbell
Nothing speaks to the power of Youtube like the trend of celebrities creating their own lifestyle vlog channels. J.Lo, Adrienne Bailon, Shay Mitchell, and, now, Naomi Campbell. This supermodel gave us selfie models the deets to her quick makeup routine and -just, wow. Thank you.
First off, Ms. Campbell starts the video with her immaculate bare skin -the woman has no need for makeup. Makeup needs Naomi. After years of getting her makeup done by the industry’s best, of course Naomi has picked up a few tricks along the way.
“My quick 5 minutes -er, no.. my quick few minutes makeup”
With her skin looking like hydration is thristy, she begins with some concealer to highlight her T-zone.
“Highlighting the T-zone is always important”
“I love using these [triangles]. They lay flat and dont apply too much [product].”
Throw out your beauty blender, folks, and get you a big pack of wedges!
Naomi’s look was all about highlighting her bone structure and keeping the look as minmal as possible.
“i dont really where base on my forehead because I want to look like I dont really have anything on.”
For this look, instead of apply foundation all over the face, use a highlighting concealer on the center of your face and blend outward.
Pause. Can you believe she just has concealer in the center of her face??? The woman is just stunning.
Concealer. Contour. Blush. Boom. Naomi Campbell.
One of the biggest takeaways from this tut is that we all need to scrap how we’ve been applying blush. Naomi prefers “high blush.” Apply your blush to high part of you cheek rather than the apple.
“High blush not low blush. I dont like to apply blush on low cheeks. I think looks like clowny and takes away from the bone structure”
She blended the highlight and blush shade from the NARS cheek palette for highlight.
She finished the look with some brightening powder under her eyes.
And threw on the tinyest bit of purple eye shadow. She used the darkest shade from this palette and did a wash of color.
“Purple is my favorite color”
She shared that when she was younger, NARS Honolulu Honey was her favorite lipstick.
“After years of sitting in a chair for so many hours, when I do it, it has to be a minute thing.”
She skipped mascara entirely because her lash extensions were so beautiful and she said she doesn’t really wear mascara.
She likes a ‘pinky’ lip and blended these two glosses together.
There were a few moments where our hearts dropped. To remove the excess powder, Naomi Campbell kept blowing on her brushes!
What is happening!
But don’t you dare come for Naomi.
Everyone was just honored to be here, honestly.
