We think Naya Rivera's makeup artist Jo Baker is an absolute artiste. She takes a blank celebrity face as her canvas and creates a veritable makeup masterpiece time and time again. (Then again, with Naya's flawless face and strong features, it isn't eactly hard for Jo to create perfection.)
Her latest work of art was showcased at the "TrevorLIVE LA Show" honoring Jane Lynch in Hollywood last night. Naya wore a stunning multitonal bodycon frock, so Jo complemented her neutral dress with toned-down nude makeup look, which was warmed up with contoured dimension.
For the record, contouring is our favorite beauty trick. This simple illusion slims down a round, chubby face, enhances cheekbones, slims the nose, and gives your features an overall more pronounced look.
To quickly contour your face, just create a backwards 3. Start just above your eyebrow, then sweep the brush down and around underneath your cheekbone, then double back and drag it along the jawline. (Repeat on the other side, obviously.)
You can do this with any angled blush brush and your favorite powdered bronzer, or you can pick up an all-in-one set. Our current favorite? Sleek Makeup Face Countour Kit ($8.49 at SleekMakeup.com).
