Jourdan Dunn’s beauty look from the GQ Men of the Year Awards was perfection. The key to achieving a similar look would be to start with the skin. Use a moisturizer that has a pearlescent glow. For skin tones like Jourdan’s I recommend a golden undertone rather than anything too pink. Once the skin is prepped continue with a dewy foundation like YSL Le Tient Touche Eclat. Try a matte bronzing powder to warm up the skin tone and under the cheekbones for definition. The easiest way to apply a smokey eye is to begin with a super black pencil wrapped around the eyes and smudged out. Top the pencil off with black shadow to intensify the look and for added staying power. Of course the classic nude lip completes this look. Maybelline Stormy Sahara is a caramel beige nude, a go-to in my personal makeup bag.
