How to Score Paris Jackson's Tomboy Makeup Look
It's all about playing up her natural beauty, says artist Jo Baker.
When Paris Jackson stepped out onto the red carpet at the Grammys on Sunday night, makeup artist Jo Baker wanted to make a statement that would not only showcase Jackson’s natural beauty, but also make her comfortable.
"Paris is a natural cool girl with tomboy ease," explains Baker, who bonded with the young star during her recent Rolling Stone cover shoot with David LaChapelle. "We wanted her to feel beautiful and clean at the same time."
For Baker, that translated into "strong angular brows, sculpted cheeks with a nude eyelid and fat lashes, and a buff nude lip," she says. "In forgoing color impact, we were able to focus on perfecting the things that made her feel beautiful."
With Fleetwood Mac, Jackson's soundtrack of choice, playing in the background, Baker began by prepping Jackson’s skin with Flower Express Mask by Sisley. Next, she created a base using a combination of Rimmel London Match Perfection concealer and Rimmel London InstaFlawless skin tint. "I used the concealer to smooth out her under-eye and sides of nose and lip area and the skin tint to add a natural glow and healthy radiance," says Baker.
To sculpt Jackson’s cheeks, Baker applied Rimmel London InstaFlawless Matte Setting using a medium-sized blush brush, followed by swipes of Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands from the corners of the mouth to the top of the ears.
Eyelids were left natural, while lashes were coated with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara to dramatic effect. Brows were given added definition and fullness with Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown.
The look culminated in a nude lip, lined in Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Innocent, followed by a swipe of Baker's personal favorite, Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte in Trendsetter.
