Editor’s Note: I am so thankful that Mr. Sam Fine is sharing what he used on Mo’Nique via Twitter. I wish more celebrity makeup artists would do the same! You can also follow him @SamFineBeauty! All pictures from his Facebook account.
It all started with a question. Amber from Brown Bombshell Beauty asked Sam Fine on Twitter what type of lashes he used on Mo’Nique for the Golden Globes.
face. Sam Fine described Mo’Nique’s Golden Globes look as “classic glamour.” He sculpted her face with one of his favorite drugstore foundations for women of color, Black Opal True Color Creme Stick Foundation with SPF 8. Next, he dusted CARGO Bronzer and MAC Bronzing Powder on cheeks to achieve a glowing complexion.
eyes. Fine chose the #747 in long, a wispy style from the Image Exclusive store in Los Angeles. The #747 is Fine’s favorite style and it also comes in small and medium. To make Mo’Nique’s eyes pop, Fine reached for Shiseido The Makeup Eyeliner Pencil Duo in Desert Dusk. Instead of using white eyeliner, Fine recommends that for brown-skinned babes, we opt for a beige eyeliner since it is more wearable. He used the Shimmery Beige shade inside the inner rim of the eye to make it appear wider and whiter. For her eyebrows, first he bleached them and then he filled them in with Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil in Medium Brown.
lips. Fine topped off Mo’Nique’s look with Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss Shimmering Lip Gloss. This gloss contains 0.2% 24k gold, which of course was perfect for our Golden Globe Goddess.
