Just before the holiday’s kicked in, Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards brought out some of the most beautiful and stylish women that deserve to be celebrated because of their excellence but it was Serena Williams that came to slay with her stunning strength and beauty.
As an early gift, Serena presented us with her first red carpet appearance after becoming a mommy. Her makeup look was stunning all thanks to makeup artist, Renny Vasquez, who created her look with Black/Opal products.
“I adore working with Serena– she is a beautiful person inside and out. Knowing this was her first red carpet appearance since giving birth, I wanted to make sure she felt, and looked, simply amazing. I used Black/Opal makeup to create a natural-looking, yet elegantly sculpted look that complemented her high ponytail and black Versace dress,” Renny shares with Pynk.
On freshly cleansed and moisturized skin, Renny applied Black Opal True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation in Black Walnut. Starting at the center of Serena’s face, he blended outward first with fingers and then used a moist blending sponge to create a smooth, even finish. This lightweight liquid foundation minimizes the appearance of pores while also controlling excess oil for beautiful skin all night long.
Renny then used the best-selling Black Opal True Color Skin Perfecting Stick Foundation in three different shades: Hazelnut and Heavenly Honey to highlight, and Ebony Brown to contour. A perennial makeup artist favorite, the Stick Foundation effectively conceals imperfections and provides seamless full coverage.
Renny applied the lighter shades, Hazelnut & Heavenly Honey, under her eyes, to her forehead, cupid’s bow.
He contoured and accentuated her cheekbones using Ebony Brown, for a perfectly sculpted look that complemented her overall look.
Lastly, to set her makeup and to ensure extended wear, Renny applied Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Loose Powder to control oil and prevent shine. He dusted the powder lightly all-over and applied an extra layer to her T-zone area.
What do you think of Serena’s look?
