There were more than just a few shining moments during the Grammys on Sunday evening! The bright spot for us was seeing Kesha, in all her glory, rocking both the red carpet and the stage with a beautiful message of forgiveness and empowerment. Count us way in!
We were inspired to take a few beauty pointers from this icon and were most inspired by her brown smoky eye, extra fluffy lashes and perfectly pink lips! Follow along while we show you how to recreate this look using our plant-based, nontoxic, good-for-you cosmetics!
STEP 1: Start out by perfecting Kesha’s full-coverage look with our Narcissist Foundation Stick. Using the stick, apply it directly to skin. Start at the center of your face, then use a foundation brush and downward pressing motion to press the coverage in and blend outwards to the edges of the face. And then dab onto any other problem areas.
STEP 2: Correct any dark circles or blemishes (we all gottem), using our Bio Correct Concealer. This power-packed natural wonder provides serious coverage, but also helps de-puff, brighten and improve skin’s texture. Focus on the inner corners of the eyes, where it is usually the darkest, then blend outwards across the under-eye area.
STEP 3: Apply a light layer of our Altruist Mineral Powder to help set the base and make this look full-coverage and matte. You can also swipe a small amount across your lids to help even out eyelid color and prep them for eye makeup.
If you are oily, rely on our Realist Setting Powder to set those areas and help absorb oil throughout the day. Simply dust a layer onto your T-zone or any other areas that tend to be more oily. Oily lids sometimes, too? Dust a bit across your eyelids if you have creasing problems and press some under the lashline to help prevent smudging from eyeliner or mascara!
STEP 4: Use our Bio Bronzer Powder to help get Kesha’s simple, smoky eye. Focus it in the crease of the eye and use circular motions to blend the color. Then use the tip of your eye brush to gently press color into the lower lashline.
Use the edge and not the tip of our Hypnotist Eyepencil in brown to do short thin strokes on the lash line (halfway across the lid) then get a basic eye brush to diffuse the color. Go from the outer corners to the inner corner. Use this same technique on the lower lash line. You can also use our Hypnotist Eyepencil in brown to fill in and shape your brows!
STEP 5: To achieve Kesha’s fully defined lash look, swipe on a few of our Expressionist Mascara Black! Make sure to go with the natural flare of the lashes (outer corner: pull towards the ears, inner corners: pull towards the nose), then use the tip of the mascara wand to define the lower lashes. The state-of-the-art rubber-bristled wand has little teeth that will help apply without getting too clumpy. If you prefer the doll-like effect of Kesha’s lashes, you can use fingers to gently pinch them together for a chunkier look.
STEP 6: Grand finale! Finish this look with our Nudist Multi Use Stick in Nude Berry #10. Use a foundation brush to apply this cream blush onto the center of the cheek and pull back to the cheek bones. Diffuse any color using the clean side of the brush or the tip of the brush.
For your pout, grab a lip brush for a more precise application and apply the Nudist Multi-Use Stick in Nude Berry #10! It’s a multi-tasking product that adds color to cheeks, eyes and lips!
