“Often clients make requests,” says makeup artist Sam Fine. “Last night, Queen had one request: she wanted to look natural with wonderful skin, sparse lashes and a great brow. Most of the time was spent perfecting the canvas.”

Want to get Queen Latifah’s natural look? Here’s how…

FACE
Use a cream foundation to give skin a supple, flawless complexion. Next, apply a bit of powder to the t-zone only. This allows the outer perimeter of the skin to glow naturally. Layer on bronzer to add a glow, then follow with a bit of blush on the apples of the cheek. “Since Queen was wearing a strapless dress, I applied a thin layer of moisturizer to her shoulders and collar bone. Then I dusted on some bronzer to make draw a bit of attention and make them shimmer,” says Sam.

EYES
Apply a small amount of highlighter to underneath the brow bone. Then use the same bronzer as a shadow and sweep it lightly across the eyelids. Use a smokey black pencil liner to line the upper lid and then smudge it with a deep ebony shadow. Apply a few coats of mascara. “I used barely any eyeshadow when creating this look. Very less is more,” advises Sam. ” An alternative to the deep ebony shadow could be a dark navy. As always when creating an eye for an awards show or event, don’t forget your false lashes.”

LIPS
Line the lips with a liner that is one shade darker than your natural color. Then apply a matching shimmering lip gloss on top. Voila! “The lips were extremely nude to compliment the rest of the classic look,” says Sam.
