Modern Glamour: Gabrielle Union


”I prepped Gabrielle’s skin with Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream in the center of her face and Rose De Mai Cream on the cheekbones and neck and décolleté for a rich, dewy glow.”


1. ”I used Future Skin Foundation in Banana in the center of Gabrielle’s face and Suntan around the perimeter and applied Future Skin Cushion Skincare Foundation in Espresso for a touch of contour. Real Skin+ Eye and Face Stick concealers in shades 8, 9 & 10 to create dimension on the face.”

2. ”A light swipe of Éclat Brillant Face Powder gave a pretty highlight down the bridge of the nose.”

“For the eyes, I wanted definition and shape but with no hard lines, just extreme soft glamour.”


1. ”I love a beautifully shaped brow, which I achieved by using Waterproof Brow Definer in Oak Brown, then set it in place with Full Brow Perfecting Gel.”

2. ”I started by smudging Luster Glide Eyeliner in Raven along the upper and lower lash lines, buffing it out. Then I applied a layer of the Earth shade at the edge of the black and buffed that with the Smudge Brush to create a tonal smokey eye.” 

3. ”For the eyes, I wanted definition and shape but with no hard lines, just extreme soft glamour. On the upper lid, I dusted on a layer of the Luminescent Eye Shade in Leopard to add a touch of sheen to the lid and then a bit more of the liner shades to lock in the depth.”

4. ”I also lined the waterline with the Luster Glide Eye Liner in Raven on top and bottom and then coated the top and bottom lashes with Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara.”


1. ”For the lips, I used Lip Definer in Tone all over the lips. I love using a lip pencil all over to give a good, secure base for lipstick and gloss.”

2. ”I used a touch of Le Matte Stylo in Meadowsweet over the liner and patted on a thin application of Brilliant Gloss in Blithe to complete the look.”
