Learn how to do an easy, everyday makeup look for black women from professional makeup artist Nicole Williams in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


So, for every day make-up on Aminata, I'm just going to add, she's already got really great brows. The eye shadow's nice, but I'm gonna go in and add a little mascara and pop this shadow with a little bit of orange. That really looks great on African-American women. It just makes the skin and the eyes glow.

So, let's start with the mascara. Let me just show you how you can make this shadow pop, which she already has on, by just adding a little bit of Maybelline's Great Lash. I'm gonna take an orange from MAC and go right in that crease, just to make what she already has on stand out.

We're gonna do a little bit of the orange on the cheek. And then for the lips, we're gonna go in with something really subtle and really pretty. I love the O-GLOSS from Smashbox, because it intuitively knows, takes on, the color of your own natural lip. Try this, it's really a great product. So let me just show you how it works. It goes on clear and takes on that natural shade. And it looks like she actually put on a lip color. It's really, really pretty and that can be something that you can do every day.
