No matter how hard I try, no matter how good I get at makeup, I can’t seem to pull off a heavy, dramatic winged eyeliner look. I wasn’t expecting a former first lady to completely blast the graphic eyeliner I dream of, but when it’s someone as cool and gorgeous as Michelle Obama, it’s not at all surprising. Obama is on tour for her new book The light we carryand she’s never looked better.
On Friday, December 2nd, Obama took the stage in Atlanta wearing a really chic Palmer//Harding leather jacket and pants, a Reiss tank top, tough Stuart Weitzman boots and Grace Lee jewelry, styled by Meredith Koop. Hairstylist Njeri Radway was responsible for her braids and high bun. But we’re talking about the makeup here, right? It’s all just so good, I can’t follow.
Makeup artist Carl Ray was on glam, which showed off that killer winged eyeliner, glowing skin, bold brows and a banging lip.
The best part? He revealed exactly what he used on the former first lady so we can all try to see her look at home. To achieve the bronze and black cat eye look, he used two Beauty Pie products. “I love working with the Beauty Pie Precision Liquid Eyeliner,” Ray said in a statement. “It’s so precise and glides effortlessly. It’s smooth and long lasting – both things I’m looking for in an eyeliner! The Wondercolour Longwear Cream Shadow Stick in Copperini is the perfect partner.”
Ray has tagged more of our favorite makeup brands, like Pat McGrath Labs, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Fenty Beauty, but we’ll have to wait for him to reveal more about what he used and where. We especially need detail on that bright pink lip, something we don’t see her sporting often — and it looks like it Well.
