Timeless Beauties like Iman and Beyonce will always inspire Make Up Artists like myself. :)

If you guys have been with me since I started writing my blog, you know how obsessed I am with perfecting the skin and brows.

I wanted the focus to be on Milena's amazing features so I decided to keep the hair clean and simple with an updo.

I used 3 eyeshadows on the crease. When making a look like this, make sure that the colours looks as if they are melting into one another.

To make the crease more pronounced, I outlined it with a black liquid liner.

I skipped false lashes and used 2 coats of Benefit's They're Real Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

The 70's and 80's produced legendary beauty Iman and I could not think of a better way to pay tribute to this woman who paved the way for other women of colour to take centre stage than by combining her signature look which is amazing skin and full lightened brows with one of today's beauty icons' more famous look, Beyonce's make up in Video Phone.
