Make-up artist Carol Lopez Reid reveals her top tips and tricks to recreate singer Jorja Smith’s beauty look from her Kali Uchis tour.
I started by prepping with Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum followed by Dior’s Hydra Life Hydration Rescue Intense Sorbet Creme. To even out Jorja’s skin, I used Dior Forever Skin Glow in shades 3 and 4 and Dior Forever Skin Undercover Concealer in honey beige. I added some dimension with the Dior Skin Mineral Nude Bronze using the warm sunlight shade. Next, I applied Dior Rouge Blush in 219 Rose Montaigne to the apples of her cheeks and highlighted with the gold and pink shades from the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette.
“My inspiration for the look was all about Jorja. We wanted to match her styling for the show and embrace and enhance her natural beauty. Think 90s London garage girls, super cool, natural, full-face glam”
I filled in Jorja’s brows with a combination of the Dior Backstage Brow Palette in dark and Dior Show Brow Styler in universal dark brown. To ensure that the eyeshadow stayed put all night, I applied the Dior Backstage Eye Prime. I then added a mix of all the colours from the Dior 3 Couleurs Tri(o)blique Palette. Next, I applied coral canvas to the lids and added depth to the outer lids using a warm sulight colour. I added brightness to the corners of her eyes by mixing the white and gold shades from the Dior Backstage Palette. I also used both the brown liner shades from the 5 Couleurs Collection and finished with a flick of black liner and Dior Show Pump ‘n’ Volume Mascara to thicken the lashes.
I applied the rouge Dior ultra rouge lipstick in crave and topped it off with the Dior Addict Stellar Shine Gloss for a bold look.
