If you caught Latifah’s stirring performance of “America the Beautiful” kicking off last night’s Super Bowl, then you know that the Queen’s eyes looked prettier than ever. “She was wearing a black and gold jacket with a black tank and dark-wash jeans, so I wanted to compliment that look,” says celebrity makeup artist Monifa Mortis, who created Queen Latifah’s big game face. “Plus, I wanted to make sure that her eyes had smoky definition so all the fans could see her!” Here, a step-by-step breakdown of how Mortis created the superstar’s sexy eye look. After rimming the eye with a simple black eyeliner, Mortis applied a black eyeshadow to the outer corner and crease of the lids. For a pop of color, she blended a shimmery cranberry shadow in the center and inner corner of Latifah’s lid. Try CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast in Purple Plume.
