New Work: Make-up Artist Rea Ann Silva & Mo'Nique

You guys asked for it, so here it is! Make-up Artist Rea Ann Silva dishes on how she achieved this beautiful look on Oscar Winner Mo'Nique on the Barbara Walters Oscar Special last Sunday, March 7th.

For the face, Rea Ann used Kevyn Aucoin concealer in No. 12. She used La Mer Bronze for the inner face and Make-up Forever No. 178 for the outer face, and then used Bobbi Brown powder in Orange yellow for top off the look. To highlight Mo'Nique's face, she used La Mer's The Powder in Translucent. "I like this powder as it has a wonderful iridescence to it, perfect for bringing out the high points on the face."

On the cheeks, she used blush by Scott Barnes in the 3-color palette in Brandy Wine utilizing all 3 shades. Those tantalizing eyes were created by using Christian Dior's 5-color palette in Night Dust. She used Damone Roberts in Latte for the eyebrows and lined the eyes with MAC's Fluidline in Blacktrack. Rea Ann swears by Shu Uemura eyelashes and topped them off with Christian Dior Beauty's Diorshow in Black.

For lips, she not only lined but shaded the lips from the corners inward with Francesca Guerrera Lipliner in Dante Clay. She left the center of the lips nude, highlighting that area as well as the rest of the lips with YSL Golden Gloss in No. 2. And, for that all over body glow, she used Prtty Potion in Dark on the legs and body.
