“Multiple cutting edge hairstyles and wardrobe choices inspired the look. We planned in advance to create a makeup look that would look gorgeous with all of her wardrobe changes throughout the evening,” Frederick-Thompson said about the inspiration behind Ciara's makeup look.
So, is it possible to re-create this beautiful makeup look at home?
First and foremost, Frederick-Thompson prepped Ciara's skin. She cleansed her skin with the Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Towelettes. Then, she used RèVive Skincare Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream. This works amazingly to highlight the eye area.
As Frederick-Thompson continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance Bronze. This works to give the skin a supple and radiant quality. A quality that is very much needed for smooth and flawless makeup application. Next, the celebrity makeup artist applied a thin layer of Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Chai to even out Ciara's complexion.
Then, the celebrity makeup artist applied the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-4 which works to highlight the t-zone and to keep the songstress's skin looking flawless. As Frederick-Thompson continued, she lightly contoured Ciara's forehead, nose and cheekbones using the Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette followed by an application of the MAC Sheer Select Loose Powder in Peach.
This look is all about the skin so the celebrity makeup artist continued with applying the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder all over the singer's face before applying the Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Canyon on the apples of her cheeks. She finished the face with the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Seduction and the Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Face Makeup Powder in Candlelight. This works to create a beautiful radiant glow.
As she continued with the makeup look, she began shaping and defining Ciara's brows with the Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette. The celebrity makeup, then applied the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Layin’ Low to the songstress's eyelids. Frederick-Thompson then contoured the outer corners of the lip, crease and entire lash line with Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Tuxedo. This works to give the eyes more depth.
Frederick-Thompson continued by layering the eyelids by using the pewter-toned eye shadow, Rock from Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette. Frederick-Thompson then highlighted Ciara’s brow bone with a warm vanilla shadow, Dust, also from Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette. And for that extra dash of glam, she dotted the inside corners of Ciara's eyes with the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Moonlight. To finish the eyes the celebrity makeup artist applied several coats of the Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils in black.
Frederick-Thompson lined and contoured the singer's lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Chestnut. As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Embrace. To finish the look, Frederick-Thompson highlighted the center of Ciara's lips by using the Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Brigitte.
Congratulations! You have just re-created Ciara's makeup look at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.
