Today is Zendaya’s 20th birthday, and here's a quick reminder of just how ridiculously talented she is: The Disney star can act, dance, sing, slay a red carpet and beat her face to perfection (At 20, I could barely apply lipstick without getting it on my teeth, so to say I’m impressed is an understatement). Long before joining the Covergirl family, Zendaya made it clear that she could easily add the of title makeup artist to her already extensive Hollywood resume:
And now I find myself constantly scrolling down her Instagram feed for motivation to up my beauty game. For instance:
I need the 411 on how she managed to add just the right amount of color to the cheeks. The only “princess makeup” look I acknowledge is this one:
Yes girl, where are these tutorials? Teach me how to create the perfect matte lip before it goes out of style!
Let’s talk about this perfect smoky eye and slick brow combo. With the help of her amazing stylist Luxury Law, Zendaya transformed into an Old Hollywood goddess for the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards. How can you not acknowledge this perfect slay?
Even with bangs covering her forehead, Zendaya’s brow game cannot be ignored.
If ever you need motivation to spend an extra five minutes putting on makeup in the morning, just look at this red carpet moment. Bow down to the makeup queen.
Yes, you can be fresh-faced with a full face of makeup. Case in point: Zendaya’s beat face during this standout red carpet moment.
And as much as we love her mellow makeup moments, we’re equally elated to see vibrant ones like this.
Here’s to another year of #blackgirlmagic. Happy birthday, Z!
