I'm heartbroken over the lack of participation in this thread!

I'll see what I can do to breathe life into it. I think I'll buy some magazines for ethnic women, scan the beauty pages, and post them here.

Until then, I'll raid Makeup411.com:

Thanks for the post. I'd love to see some scans in here

It's not makeup but I did just buy the Rx for Brown Skin regime from Sephora. So far I really like the way makes my skin feel.

Beyonce Knowles

Foundation - Black Opal in Heavenly Honey
Concealer - Black Opal in Honey
Powder - Chanel Translucent No.3
Cheeks - Shu Uemura powder blush in Rust, and Shu Uemura Cherry blush on apples of cheeks.
Eyes - Varied for every look depending on the outfit. She wore very warm shades (lots of yellows, golds, oranges) and basically her shadow color matched her clothes. For instance (in the picture to the left in all gold) she wore a mixture of yellow/gold and bronze glitter all over lids, her lashes were from Naimies (style #80), and mini black rhinestones were applied over black creme liner by MAC, which ran along lash line. When she wears the green hat, her shadow is a periwinkle green color and her lashes are "pixie" lashes (#302). For the pattern eye (in green leather outfit, not pictured) they used a stencil over gold shadow, and painted little black dots on lids.
Eye liner - The inside rim of her eyes was always lined with a black pencil. MAC Crème liner in black was used to line along her lashes and alway swept up at outer corners.
Brows - Nicely defined with a dark brown pencil by Max Factor
Lashes - Chanel Instant Lash mascara in Black. As previously mentioned, lashes were a big part of her look. The make-up team used a variety of different styles of lashes from Naimies Beauty Supply in Los Angeles. Mostly used styles #80 and #302.
Lips - Benefit lip pencil in Smolder with clear MAC Lipglass was the staple lip look. Depending on outfits, glitter was mixed with the gloss.
Body Make-up - Max Factor Lasting Performance in Bronze



Foundation: La Mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation in Tan and Caramel mixed with Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Tan.
Cheeks: For blush, Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder #2 mixed with Nars blush in Lovejoy.
Powder: La Mer The Powder in Translucent.
Eye shadow and eyeliner: White glitter from a craft store; MAC Glitter in Purple, Jewelmarine and 3-D Gold; MAC Glitter liquid eyeliner in Divine Lime. Tolot followed the natural shape of Knowles’ eyes when lining them, resulting in a bold almond contour. She extended the white glitter upwards, so that it touched Knowles’ eyebrows.
Mascara: L’Oreal Double Extend in Blackest Black.
False lashes: MAC’s 5 Lash and Ardell’s Runway Claudia.
Brows: Tolot used no product, leaving the focus on the shape and grooming of the brows. This contrasts this with the beginning of the film, when Deena’s less refined look required Tolot to thicken the brows.
Lips: L’Oreal Colour Juice in Sugar Coated.
Working with this face: Tolot says Knowles “has a great face, which is great for make-up.” She notes that Knowles “has just the perfect amount of space between her eyebrows and eyelashes.”

Also, KLS by Kimora Lee Simmons is all on sale @ Sephora. I bought her stick concealer in Dark 10 and it was a perfect match. I'm usually a MAC NC45 girl.

From Essence.com:

"Red is timeless and especially flattering this season. Make a bold statement with rich, vibrant shades like cherry, brick and wine on your lips, cheeks and eyes. We love Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Red, Red, Red, $14, sephora.com. If you really want to take it there, try brushing on a few strokes of red shadow along your lash line. Two to try: Nars Cream Eye Shadow in Amarcord, $21, sephora.com; and Make Up For Ever Star Powder Iridescent Powder #949, $18, Make Up For Ever Studio, New York, 212-941-9337."


"Serve up some drama with a bodacious blue. Let your eyes do all the talking in deep blue hues like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Black Pearl, $23, bobbibrown.com. Bring on the Hollywood glam with shu uemura False Eyelashes, $10-$50, shuuemura-usa.com."


"Go for the gold-on the lid and in the crease. Modern technology infuses the deepest, darkest shades with micronized flecks, which means you won’t end up looking as if your makeup got stuck in the eighties. Try L’Oréal HIP High Intensity Pigments Color Rich Crayon in Attentive, $10, drugstores nationwide and Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Honey, $18, Ulta Stores nationwide. Sheer, velvety textures create a luster that’s elegant and sophisticated from day into night."


"Sparkle this season with metallic makeup. Whether it's a sheer sweep of eye shadow or a shiny coat of nail polish, silver is the perfect edgy accent for day and night. Let us show you how to get the look. On lids: Try Clinique Colour Surge Platinum Eye shadow $14, clinique.com; Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowStick, $18, esteelauder.com, under the eyes, and finish with Max Factor Volume Couture Waterproof Mascara, $7, Wal-Mart stores nationwide. Brush on three coats of Essie Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Loophole, $8, essie.com, to shimmer like polished steel."


"From lavender to plum to violet, this shade makes a statement when used on lashes, lids, lips and cheeks. On lids: Try Dior Beauty 5-colour Eyeshadow Palette in Sweet Illusion, $52, neimanmarcus.com, and complete the look by defining the eyes with MAC Cosmetics Liquidlast Liner in Pop Iris and Electrolady, approximately $17 each, maccosmetics.com; or L'Oreal HIP Pigments Color Truth Cream in Eggplant, $12, drugstores nationwide. Perfect the pout with Kissable Couture Gloss in Tyler, $25, kissablecouture.com."


"Say good-bye to pigment-saturated glosses and hello to the new breed of soft, matte satin lipsticks. Because the finish is translucent (and not "heavy metal"), it won't overwhelm your look. And since the way forward is to take a minimalist approach, make sure to keep lips ultrasmooth. Metallic lip color will amplify any dryness or flakiness and ruin the sensuous pout you're aiming for. Gilty pleasure: Pucker up with a hydrating lip balm, then apply IMAN Cosmetics Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Sheer Gold, $9, Walgreens stores nationwide, at base using a lip brush for a strobe-fresh finish."

From The Powder Group:

Corrine Bailey Rae

Makeup artist Amy Chance made up songbird and Grammy nominee Corinne Bailey Rae for this year’s Grammy Awards. In the midst of a world-tour, Corinne flew in to Los Angeles from Japan and immediately went into rehearsals for the awards.

To revive her skin from the traveling and make her tired eyes look more awake, explains Amy, they started off the day using DuWop IGels. She followed that up with L'Occitane Express Eye Treatment and Biotherm Biopur moisturizer. For foundation, Amy applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #9. She concealed with Biotherm Light Catch concealer in #30 under the eyes and wherever needed. Laura Mercier Setting Powder in Beige was dusted on the t-zone and under the eyes. Amy made her cheeks pop with NARS blush in Torrid. For eyes, NARS Faith was applied as the highlight color. Amy did the rest of Corinne’s eye with the Chanel Winter Nights palette: purple in the crease with the sparkly black color on the lid and smudged under the eye. She then lined eyes with MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder. To highlight the inside corners of the eyes, Amy added the gold color from the Scott Barnes Brandywine Chic palette. Shu Uemura individual lashes were added and topped off with Lancome Hypnose mascara in Black. Amy completed the look with Nars Dolce Vita lipstick and Scott Barnes Lip Slick in Satisfied.

To ensure flawless and shimmery skin, Amy applied DuWop Revolotion to her body. And in the spirit of her single, Corinne radiated just like a star.

Jennifer Hudson

According to Shutchai Tym Buacharern, the makeup supervisor on the much anticipated Dreamgirls, the team of skilled makeup artists for the film went through 30 to 40 jars of MAC Blacktrack FluidLine and 15,000 – 20,000 pairs of eyelashes from Ardell and MAC to Valerie Beverly Hills’ mink lashes. Talk about the price of beauty.

Of course, it wasn't just used for Dreamgirls Jennifer Hudson, Anika Noni Rose, Beyoncé Knowles and Sharon Leal. As Tym explains, the lashes and liner were applied to everyone from the main actresses to the extras.

As makeup supervisor, Tym created the overall look based on an updated version of the late ‘60s through mid-‘70s style. “When the girls first start out, they are very simple. They are like girls from the ‘hood who become more refined,” explains Tym who applied makeup for both Jennifer Hudson and Anika Noni Rose. Jennifer Hudson’s “Effie White” transforms from a poor girl from Detroit into a superstar and then to an ex-singer on welfare. Her makeup demonstrates that—with plain and innocent to glammed up to torn down to nothing, not even mascara. Unlike the glamorous transformation of Beyoncé’s character, Jennifer’s Effie is stripped away of all her glamour and takes on a more natural style wearing neutral, earthier makeup tones.

When it came to makeup, Tym didn’t discriminate—he used everything from well-known brands like MAC and Bobbi Brown to newcomers Jack & Jill Cosmetics. Jennifer’s foundation is a mixture of Dermacolor, Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick and MAC. To even out her skin tone, Tym applied Amazing Cosmetics concealer. He set makeup with MAC invisible powder. For touch-ups, Tym liked I-Iman pressed powder. Her blush is Nars Torrid which all the girls wear in the film. Tym opted for a satiny finish lipstick as opposed to the matte lips of the time and used Nars lipstick in nude shades like Honolulu Honey and Belle du Jour. To update the look, for the ‘70s scenes, he went all out with YSL Golden Gloss in no.1, 2 and 3. He also used Biotherm’s lip gloss because they are heavily pigmented and piled YSL Golden Gloss on top. In the “disco scene” performance, he glossed up lips with MAC Lip Glass in clear for added shine.

All the Dreamgirls wear MAC Fluidline Blacktrack eye liner. For an “everyday” look, Tym used Prescriptives Duo Bronzing Powder in So Warm as eye shadow on Jennifer. He liked the lighter color on the lid and darker in the crease. Tym also used a lot of MAC Pigments for various scenes. Tym bronzed Jennifer’s body with Classified Cosmetics Era Raze spray on bronzer, Lancome Star Bronzer Magic Golden Spray or Sue Devitt Liquid Gold Coast mixed with L’Occitane Butter Lotion. Instead of all-over bronzer, Tym just emphasized sheen with blush and eye shadow with an occasional dusting on Physician’s Formula Bronzer.

Beyonce Knowles

Dreamgirls opens this month and the buzz surrounding this film seems to be everywhere. After chatting with Beyoncé’s makeup artist, Francesca Tolot, and learning about the 40 or so different wardrobe, hair and makeup changes, I can see what all the fuss is about—at least as far as eye candy goes. While all the looks aren’t entirely detectable in the film, it should still be fun to see the makeup department put a modern twist on the classic ‘60s and ‘70s.

Francesca was kind enough to let me in on her inspiration and the products she used to transform singer-turned-actress Beyoncé into “Deena Jones.” From Motown and The Supremes to icons like Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Cher and Veruschka to classic Vogue & Bazaar magazines, Francesca pulled inspiration from all over the classic ‘60s and ‘70s eras. “We’d be picking a feeling from one picture with a twist from another and mix it together in a creative way. Nothing was specific to one person or another,” says Francesca. In order to convey Beyoncé’s youth at the start of the film, she wears barely any makeup. Francesca drew thicker eyebrows on the actress and left her lips bare with La Mer Lip Balm. We see her transition into superstar status with lots of lashes and L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara in Blackest Black. “Sometimes she is wearing three sets of MAC lashes piled on top of each other,” says Francesca.

Beyoncé wears La Mer Foundation in Natural, Caramel or Tan depending on the scene. To create a much lighter skin tone under Beyonce’s eyes, Francesca used Amazing Cosmetics Concealer and explains “In the ‘70s, concealer was part of the look. Women started to have the raccoon effect…so it wasn’t so much that Beyoncé needed it, it was used more in a natural and beautiful way to go with the era.” For powder, she dusted on La Mer.

Along with concealer, some bronzer and lip gloss helped take Beyoncé's character from the ‘60s to the ‘70s. “The ‘70s is when bronzer, lip gloss and concealer were popular,” adds Francesca whose thorough research on the era is evident in every makeup decision she makes. Beyoncé was bronzed with Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer and occasionally Nars Laguna. Francesca stepped up the color in the ‘70s scenes with Nars Torrid blush, but for the most part Beyoncé is just wearing bronzer. Lips go from creamy pink, beige and orangey-salmon in the ‘60s to natural or fuchsia tinted gloss in the ‘70s. Francesca liked Lorac Lip Polish (for the pinks and beige) and L’Oreal (for the gloss). Nars, MAC and L’Oreal Hip eye shadows were used on the eyes, especially when stronger color was required. For Francesca’s favorite look in the film, the Disco Era, she uses glitter in an unusual way. “I used MAC Glitter like paint,” explains Francesca. “I did her whole eye makeup like it was an eye shadow, but it was glitter.” She mixed MAC Glitter with a MAC Mixing Medium and painted it on to the eyes as if it were eye shadow. She admits they didn’t know if the look would translate on film but adds “it did and you can see every color.” Once the makeup was finished, she painted white glitter on the brow bone and cheeks and then lightly showered Beyoncé with glitter. She says of the film, and in particular this “disco era” scene, “We had a fantastic lighting director. It was coming alive in such a beautiful way that it was like a dream.”

Heh, I didn't even know this thread existed-which says a lot. I tend to go very natural as far as makeup goes, with usually none at all. Hello school and work!
Does anyone know of a good concealer, especially for undereye circles? I'd love to wear eyeliner but my eyes end up looking tired, dark, and evil after a few hours. Any advice or brand names?

I like MAC's concealer stick but Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation gives really nice coverage as well.

I don't have super-dark undereye circles, but I the MAC studio finish concealer in NW40 (my complexion is similar to Gabrielle Union / Aisha Tyler). Looks just like skin!

When I need more coverage for hyper-pigmentation, blemishes, etc I use Dermablend cover creme in #5 1/4 - cafe brown.

After working together for over a decade, I insisted on providing my services as Veronica prepared for her 40th (yes, 40th!) birthday celebration. When she isn't working the runway and red carpet, she favors a simple approach to beauty, so I began by selecting Prescriptives Virtual Skin liquid foundation for a glowing, natural finish. Then, I filled in her brows with my favorite eyebrow pencils from Damone Roberts. I began using a dark brown pencil (Minx) then lightly adding strokes of soft black pencil (Miss Ross) in areas that required added definition, such as the tail of the brow. Topping this look off with tons of individual lashes from MAC Cosmetics make her eyes stand out without liner or shadow. And finally, using a sheer gloss (sans liner) makes this look glamorous, yet understated!

It's not much, but I scanned the feature MUA page in SBH, I have loads more issues if anyone is interested they feature different celebs make up artist every month.



Sorry I don't know how to make it bigger!

That's a nice page. I haven't picked up that magazine in ages, the layout is much nicer now.

It's not makeup but I did just buy the Rx for Brown Skin regime from Sephora. So far I really like the way makes my skin feel.
I'm thinking of buying the Rx for Brown Skin regime from Sephora. How is it working for you? What results were you hoping for and did you get those results? Thanks
