Sultry and Sophisticated Makeup Look – Get The Look 10

Sultry and Sophisticated Makeup Look - Ariana Grande

Welcome to today’s edition of our “Get The Look” series, where we bring the secrets of celebrity makeup artists to your fingertips. In this session, we’re all about achieving a sultry and sophisticated makeup look that’s perfect for any glamorous outing.

The makeup in the image is a beautiful rendition of classic beauty, featuring a flawless matte base, perfectly contoured cheeks, bold, structured eyebrows, and a stunning smoky eye with a winged liner. The lips are a lovely nude, complementing the dramatic eyes while keeping the overall look balanced and elegant.

Begin with a mattifying primer to create a smooth canvas. Then apply a long-wearing, matte foundation to achieve an impeccable base. Use a concealer to brighten under the eyes and cover any imperfections. Set the foundation with a loose setting powder to keep everything in place and to mattify your complexion.

For the cheeks, contour with a matte bronzer beneath your cheekbones to define and sculpt. Then apply a warm peach blush to the apples of your cheeks for a touch of color and blend it outwards towards the hairline. Highlight the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the cupid’s bow with a shimmering highlighter for a radiant glow.

The eyes are the highlight of this look. Start with an eyeshadow primer, then sweep a warm brown eyeshadow across the lids as a base. Define the crease with a slightly darker brown to add depth. Use a dark brown or black shadow to create a winged effect and smudge it out for a smoky finish. Line the upper and lower waterline with a black kohl pencil to intensify the look. Apply false lashes for an extra fluttery appearance and finish off with a coat of volumizing mascara.

Shape and fill in the eyebrows with a brow pencil or pomade to create full, defined brows. Set them with a clear brow gel to keep them in place all day.

For the lips, line with a nude lip liner that matches your natural lip color and fill them in with a long-lasting matte nude lipstick. Add a touch of clear or nude lip gloss for a subtle sheen.
