Get The Look
GET THE LOOK by Nayla McCann

Our very own Editor-In-Chief, Nealette Douglas, attended Runway Houston 2017. She summoned me to hook her up with bad and Bougie look to match her style for the night. It was fairly easy for me. This natural beauty, with thick dark curly hair, had a model bone structure, flawless skin, and naturally plump lips to work with.
I made sure her makeup would photograph well without any flashback or what we all like to call —
I love for skin to look like skin!
I started with IT Cosmetics Bye-Bye Pores Primer as a layer of protection for her skin. Not only does it protect, this serum contains ingredients to perfect the skin. I used MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation in NW43 as a base. A pea size goes a long way.
This gel based foundation blends well and gives a very airbrush like finish. I highlighted her under eyes with the MAC Prep + Prime highlighter in Peach Lustre and lightly contoured with MAC Matchmaster concealer 9.0. I used MAC Mineralized SkinFinish in Dark Tan to blend and softly buffed MAC Powder Blush in Modern Mandarin into her cheeks.
For Lips, I applied MAC Lip Liner in Chestnut, MAC Satin Lipstick in Fleshpot, and MAC Mineralize Glass in Lovingly Yours to create the bombshell nude lip. To complete this sweet glam look, I applied the limited edition MAC Vibe Tribe GlemStones Highlighter and MAC FIX + Spray to give her skin the appearance of a natural glow.
