Janet Jackson's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup

You know you’ve reached diva status when it only becomes necessary to refer to you by your first name. Janet, the sexiest member of the star-studded Jackson family, is definitely there. She’s come a long way from her first debut as "Michael’s little sister." Today Janet is a full-blown sex symbol and R&B superstar in her own right. If you’d like to get Janet’s glam makeup follow these few easy steps for the ultimate in sexy star style.

STEP 1 Apply a matte finish foundation using a brush or a sponge. Go over with your fingers to blend. With a concealer brush, apply a cream concealer under the eyes, on the lids and around the nose and blend well. Using a powder brush, dust a light application of pressed powder all over the face.

STEP 2 Use an angled blush brush to apply a deep brown bronzing powder just under the cheekbones, along the hairline and under the jawline. Use a small shadow brush to dust this color down either side of the nose starting at the eyebrows and ending at the top of the nostrils. It’s important all this color be very well blended.

STEP 3 Sweep a banana color eye shadow all over the lid, from lashes to brow. Apply a reddish-brown shadow to the lower lid by starting the color at the lash line and blending the color just up into the crease.

STEP 4 Create a banana-shaped line on the outer half of the crease using a deep chocolate brown shadow. Use your shadow brush to make sure this color is blended well into the crease. With a shadow brush or your finger, press a pearl-colored shimmer powder into the inner corner of the eyelid to brighten the eye.

STEP 5 Line the inside of the top lash line with a black eye liner pencil. Use the same pencil to line the outer edge of the bottom lashes, keeping the color close to the eye. Apply two coats of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

STEP 6 Cut a strip of false lashes to the length of your upper lash line. Apply a small amount of glue to the strip and then press it into your top lash line. Wait at least a minute for the glue to dry. Moisten a liner brush and dip it into black eye shadow. Use this to line the top lash line only. This will help to conceal the false lashes and add more intensity to the eye.

STEP 7 Apply a rosy-pink powder blush to the apples of the cheeks, blending well with a blush brush. This is a fairly bright color. If you find the blush looks too hot use a little loose powder to cool it down.

STEP 8 Line your lips with a chestnut lip liner. Use a lip brush to apply a pale rose shimmer lip color. Finish the lips with an application of gloss in a similar color as the lipstick.
