This woman is simply incredible. She’s like a real-life super hero.
She looks better on this cover than she did on Like a Virgin more than TWENTY years ago.
We got the scoop on how Shu Uemura artistic director Gina Brooke created this look for Madonna:
STEP 1: Prepare the face
Begin with prepping the eyes with the MOISTURE EYE ZONE MASK. This will not only calm puffiness but it will give your eyes the ultimate hydration. Then apply PHYTO BLACK LIFT FIRMING CREAM on the whole face – it’s an amazing moisturizer and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, apply FACE ARCHITECT SMOOTHING FLUID FOUNDATION beginning at the arch of your brow down to the middle of your eye, directly onto the middle of the cheekbone. Each time the sun reflects off your skin, it will create the illusion of glowing, dewy, healthy, radiant skin!
STEP 2: Prime the eyelids
Using a KOLINSKY BRUSH 11, apply PRESSED EYE SHADOW in M BEIGE 800 above the eyelids. Then, use COVER CRAYON in 9YR LIGHT in the inner corner and water line of the eyes to make them appear larger. Using the DRAWING PENCIL in BLACK, begin at the inner corners extending the line out all the way to the end of the eyebrow.
STEP 3: Prep the lashes
Use the EYELASH CURLER before applying BASIC BLACK MASCARA beginning at the base and rolling the brush through the tips of lashes. Apply SOFT CROSS LASHES to draw attention and enhance the shape of the eye.
STEP 4: Finish off with the lips
Since the focus is on the eyes, use ROUGE UNLIMITED CRYSTAL SHINE in PK 301S layered with GLOSS UNLIMITED in BG 930N for a soft, natural look.
Now all we need is 4 steps to Madonna’s perfect bod and we’d be set for life.
