GET THE LOOK: Lena Waithe at The 2019 Met Gala

Rebekah Aladdin shares how she got Lena Waithe ready for the 2019 Met Gala.  INSPIRATION: Though Lena typically keeps her face simple, for the Met Gala festivities Aladdin included a red lip to honor Marsha P. Johnson, a highly regarded beacon within the gay liberation movement.

Lena's look was about clean flawless skin to compliment the burst of color on her lips. To accomplish this look, I focused on creating a beautiful base foundation using AJ Crimson Beauty Dual Skin Foundation mixed with Dermablend Flawless Creator Foundation. [After that] I used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer to highlight under eyes, and Dermablend Loose Setting Powders to set her face. I [then] used MAC Cosmetics‘ Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in “Dark Deepest” to create a soft contour around the perimeter of her forehead, cheekbones and the bridge of her nose. I finished off the look with Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lipstick in “Boy Collector.”
