Normally when you think of the great outdoors, you probably don’t think scary-hot. Think again. LA-based celebrity makeup artist Shekinah Garner rocked this jungle-inspired look featuring brilliant tropical colors and sinister contouring. Check out the How To below:
Make eyes. Start by applying the Shade 1 all over upper lid into the inner corners. Swipe it out well past the outer corners of the eye in an eye mask-like shape. Bring the shadow all the way to the brow bone and into the eyebrows. Highlight the lower lash line as well. With Shade 2, forest green, press color into the crease from the outer corner to the inner corner and blend with a large shadow brush. Next, line the eyes — upper and lower lash lines plus the waterline. Finally, shape and fill in brows with black eyeliner then create twig- or feather-like lines up and off the brows. (Even Mother Nature likes high-impact arches.)
Create contoured face and cheeks. Apply créme blush onto apples and cheekbones — go ahead, be heavy-handed — blending with a sponge. Work Shade 3 shadow, a khaki shimmer, from brows into the hair line around the forehead and temples and down under the cheekbones and jaw line in a “number 3” shape. Add more Shade 1 and 2 for darker contouring effects. Then smooth out the edges with a sponge. With a brush, work the green contour into the pink cheek créme to blend colors together and make them seamless. Finally, use Shade 1 to go over contouring at the jawline, cheeks and hairline.
