#BlackBeauty of the Day: Erica Ash Rocks the Perfect Summer Shadow
Noam Galai

Actress Erica Ash attended the “Survivor’s Remorse” season 3 screening in New York City yesterday in all of her carefree Black girl glory.

The actress, who plays M-Chuck on the popular Starz show, ditched her character’s usual edgy blonde strands in exchange for her natural curls and spruced up her lids with the ultimate summer shadow. Needless to say, Ash is #BeautyGoals.

To get super defined curls like Ash’s, wash and condition hair using your favorite products and apply a dollop of your favorite leave-in to your strands. Bend over and shake your head so your curls separate, and follow by diffusing. This will stretch your curls and give them definition and body as seen here on Ash.

For makeup, start with a clean base, and opt for a gel-based formula that offers a dewy finish. We love Marc Jacobs Beauty Gel Genius Gel Super Charged Oil-Free Foundation, especially for oily/combination skin. Use a champagne shadow on the base of your lids and add an espresso-hued shadow to your crease. Line your lower waterline with an olive green kajal and highlight the inner corners of your eyes with a liquid shimmer liner. Complete the look by grooming your brows, lining your lids and topping your lips with a frosted gold lipstick. If you’re feeling particularly magical, dust the bridge of your nose and the high plains of your cheekbones with your favorite highlighter and head out the door.
