I just love Tia & Tamera Mowry, my favorite celebrity twins. I was recently watching their reality show on the Style Network and was really inspired to do a makeup tutorial. I love that they have fun with makeup, experimenting with colors and bold looks, but it doesn't look too overdone like a lot of the makeup you see these days on other reality shows.
I started googling pictures of the makeup on the Tia and Tamera and found this smokey eye. It's super simple, but I love the pop of teal on the waterline. It's a great way to wear color without being too over the top. I know a lot of people do this trick with a pop of aqua/teal with more bronzey looks in the summery, but this is a great way for some pop with a smokey eye, all year round.
For the smokey eye, I did a traditional method using The Balm NudeTude Palette. I applied a medium brown shade in the crease to help blend, and patted a matte black on the lid. For the lower lashline, I applied a teal pigment by OCC called Nori, and applied it with mainly the center of my waterline/lowerlashline. That way it brings center focus to the girl.
To balance everything out, I used a warm pink blush from Wet N Wild called and Nude lips from Kiss Makeup. I used Makeup For Ever Face and Body Foundation in the center of my face, darkened the outer perimeter with CoverFX cream foundation and used YSL Touche Eclat to give a higlight. Set it all with Ben Nye Banana Powder and MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark and that's it!
After doing some research, I decided to leave you with some of the twins' makeup must-haves and tips:
- Always use moisturizer with SPF
- It's worth investing in foundation to find the perfect shade - they like Make Up For Ever and Bobbi Brown
- Tia loves Nars blush and Tamara loves more bronzey cheek colors like Cargo Bronzer
- They love to play up their eyes and use Smashbox shadows
- They love MAC lipglasses
