Women of Color: Before and After

When it comes to applying makeup, every woman is unique in her needs. In this series, Eve Pearl shares her Before and After makeover images, highlighting the individual considerations of Women of Color.

In this makeover, Eve sought to even out the model's skin tone and enhance the stunning shape of her eyes. Before applying any foundation or concealer, she applied the eye makeup, giving the model an elegant smokey eye, complete with false lashes. (Watch a video on how to apply false lashes here.)

After applying a dark dual-toned foundation using her innovative Reverse Contouring technique (learn more about the method here), she used a salmon-hued concealer to cover the hyperpigmentation around the model's mouth and under her eyes. She then set the makeup with a dual pressed powder to ensure a long-lasting application.
