Alicia Keys wears Dior Beauty

"I wanted to make Alicia look a little more sophisticated and grown compared to years before. I made her complexion a radiant and creamy beige using DermaBlend Quick Stix in Natural to conceal eyes and then sprayed DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation in 400 for a flawless finish. Then I set makeup with Black Opal Invisible Oil Blotting Control Powder. I wanted to focus on her eyes since she would be performing for two hours so I used Dior Eye Show in White Disco as a base then layered using the Dior 5-Colour Eye Palette in Moonlight. I finished the look with three coats of DiorShow Iconic Mascara in black and Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Oil Slick. I used an entire pack of Shu Uemura's individual lashes to create volume and length. Finally, I used Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Linen Beige on the lips." - Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff created a dramatic-yet-sophisticated look for Alicia Keys at the 5th annual "Keep A Child Alive Black Ball" on Thursday November 13th.
