Fall may have fallen hard by now for most of us, but that doesn't mean that those Hollywood stars have let go of the summer just yet! The Sixth-Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday, October 17, saw the Californian sunshine bring some gorgeous summer beauty looks back out for the red carpet, with actress Ashley Madekwe standing out as one of our top favorite looks of the whole event: just look at that natural flawless glow!
We loved the Revenge star's beautiful beach-ready glow so much we just had to throw our knitwear to the side for a moment to get it down to perfection! Here we go...
Get the glow
Always start on clean, freshly-moisturized skin: this is the staple base for any and every makeup look! Once your face cream has absorbed into your pores, apply a thin layer of illuminating primer to even out your skin tone and give your complexion a luminous touch.
Next, swap your regular foundation for a lightweight BB cream for an even, matte coverage that also hydrates! Dot the cream onto the back of your hand as you would do with your foundation then apply to your face using a clean application sponge, starting from the center of your face and working out towards the hair line. Touch up any uneven patches of redness with a liquid concealer.
Now reach for your lumi powder glow quad to achieve Ashley's softly-contoured facial definition. Dust the darker shade lightly into the hollows of your cheeks, around your temples and under your jawline. Switch to one of the lighter powders to line the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your forehead with a hint of illumination. Blend the powders together using a clean blush brush.
Finally, it's about time you got the rest of your beauty look in order! Use a black liquid eyeliner to smoothly define your upper lashline, and give your upper lashes a coat of volumizing mascara. Add to the body of your brows with short dashes of a brow pencil, using the spoolie brush attachment to comb through to both blend the color and shape the brow line. Complete your glowing beauty look with a simple coat of light-pink, matte lipstick and you are ready!
