Get Queen Latifah's Look!

Celebrity makeup artist and true legend in the business, Sam Fine, who helped Queen look her most fabulous self last night, gives a how-two below.Sam also works with celebrity moguls like Tyra Banks, Beyonce, Vanessa Williams and Brandy to name a few (visit www.samfine.com for more information).

Classic with a hint of color - Fine complimented her purple dress using subtle shades. For the green dress, he simply created a bolder lip.

Fine used eggplant on the eye - it’s easier to wear than lilac and is closer to brown/mahogany tones. He applied it to the crease of the eye and underneath for definition. Fine used CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit in Ice Princess, $5.61 at drugstore.com. He paired the eggplant with an opalescent beige shadow on the eyelid to open up the eye. Fine used eye liner for definition on the top and tons of lashes.

I don’t know anyone who can hit the red carpet without lashes.” - Sam Fine

Mascara help to fuse Queen’s lashes to the fake lashes. Fine used CoverGirl VolumeExact Mascara in Very Black, $8.47 at drugstore.com.

Fine started with a dusting of bronzer. Queen had just come back from the holidays so she had a nice base tan. The bronzer helped to keep the golden glow going. He then layered on a rose colored blush on top of the bronzer. It added a hint of sublte color. Fine used CoverGirl Queen Collection Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer in Brown Bronze, $8.18 at drugstore.com.

Fine lined Queen’s mouth with a liner.

Liner is a step I never skip, even when doing a nude lip, especially on women of color. It really helps to define the lip.” - Sam Fine

The lipstick and gloss were a neutral yet mauvy tone. The gloss was put on top to make the color stand out against her skin. Fine used CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Pink Positive, $6.25 at drugstore.com.

For the green dress:
Fine went with a bold mouth. He created a totally different look by just changing the lips. It completely transforms the look into one that is glamorous and sexy. Fine used a cranberry colored lipstick and gloss. Fine used CoverGirl Queen Collection Vibrant Hue Color Lipstick in Cherrylicious, $7.26 at drugstore.com.
