Celebrity Inspired Makeup: Tia Mowry's Peachy Glow

Hey Dolls!

How is everyone doing? I hope F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!
This week is my last week of Summer School and I cant wait until it's over. lol

I saw this picture of Tia Mowry and loved her makeup. It’s a simple smokey eye and I love to wear a smokey eyes but that’s not what caught my eye. I loved how her cheeks looked! On her cheeks it looked like a combonation of Peach, Gold, and Bronze. It was so gorgeous and made her face glow. So, I wanted re-create that same look on my cheeks. I was nervous at first because I don’t like shimmer on my face and when you have oily skin and blemishes on your face, shimmer can make them stand out more. But when I wore this look out everyone asked me what blush I have on. So I guess all in all the look was a success.

Here is Tia's Peachy Glow

...And here is my inspired look


The Makeup (all products MAC unless other wise stated)

IMAN Foundation Stick in Earth 7 & MAC Foundation Stick NW45
Stuido fix powder in NW45 (for center of face)
Studio fix powder in NW50 (for the entire face)
Embark e/s (used for contour)

On my cheeks:
I first used Wet n Wild Bronzer in Bali Bronze (a light copper color with shimmer) on my cheeks. Than I applied MAC Raizin Blush (a reddishbrown peachy color) on the apples of my cheeks and I used MAC Dreammaker eyeshadow (a shimmery gold) as a highlight. I than took a clean Blush brush and blend the three together, so there wouldn’t be any harsh lines.

Lid: MAC Carbon eyeshadow
Crease: MAC Blunt Blush and MAC Embark eyeshadow
