Issa Rae’s entire exclusively CoverGirl makeup look cost less than USD $50, but her icy metallic eyes looked like a million dollars! The stunning palette was inspired entirely by the beading on Issa’s dress, makeup artist Joanna Simkin revealed. “We were at a fitting a month ago when I saw the sketches,” Simkin told Refinery29. “So I asked the team for the swatch of the fabric.”
The final look combines a bright blue shade from the CoverGirl TruNaked Dazed Palette topped off with a gleaming pearly shade from the brand’s TruBlend Super Stunner It’s Lit palette. Check out the full breakdown here.
