Amandla Stenberg's Braids Matched a Fenty Beauty Palette in This “Dramatic Ass” Makeup Tutorial
Search no more for your perfect New Year's Eve makeup, because Amandla Stenberg just served up both inspiration and a tutorial for us to admire and recreate.
The actor became an ambassador for Fenty Beauty back in May and has since served plenty of beautiful campaign images, as well as tutorials as part of the collaboration. But they were certainly saving the best tutorial until the end of the year. Stenberg dropped a New Year's Eve tutorial on Dec. 8, which featured a beautiful blue smoked eye makeup. The tutorial also resulted in the look being used in the newest Fenty Beauty shoot, and the outcome was (unsurprisingly) stunning. Rhianna — founder of Fenty Beauty — was obviously a fan as well, and commented on the look, "Love a multifaceted Kween!"
Of course, their eye makeup was the star of the show. So much so, that they even matched their braids to the eye shadow palette. Stenberg used the two blue shades from the Moroccan Spice Eye Shadow Palette ($41, originally $82) to create a smoky eye that stretched toward their temples. Then, they used Flyliner ($30) for their sharp winged liner, which pulled the whole look together. Aside from the eye makeup, the other key products they used were Pro Filt'r Hydrating Primer ($46), Pro Filt'r Hydrating Foundation ($52), and Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in I Quit ($28).
Not only were fans raving about how beautiful the NYE look was, but they were also asking Amandla to spill the secrets of their skincare routine — here's hoping that's the next tutorial they drop.
