How to Get a Sunkissed Glow Like the Married to Medicine Cast
Makeup artist Kendell Dempster shows us how to shine bright like Dr. Jacqueline Walters, Mariah Huq, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe, and Dr. Simone Whitmore.
Through all of the tears, drama, and hardships, the ladies of Married to Medicine always maintain their glow. Haven’t you noticed? When it’s time to get down to business, you can count on these ATL stunners to appear radiant and refreshed no matter what debacles may have gone down the night before. And this isn’t a coincidence. The Married to Medicine crew has a secret weapon in common that helps them all achieve a luminous complexion: His name is Kendell Dempster.
“As a makeup artist, achieving a sunkissed glow is definitely a must... especially with the women of Married to Medicine,” Dempster told The Lookbook. Dempster also shared that this look is fairly simple to execute.
We’re guessing we aren't the only ones looking to perfect a kissed-by-the-sun glam this season, so we asked Dempster to share how he keeps the Married to Medicine cast looking radiant.
Dempster's Glow Tips:
No.1: Go easy on the powder.
Use powder only in the oily areas like the t-zone (forehead, nose, and on top of the lips).
No.2: Prep the skin.
Mix primer and moisturizer together so the makeup looks seamless against the skin.
No.3: Create the perfect base.
Steal the Married to Medicine Ladies' Looks:
"One woman who loves her skin to glow is Mariah Huq. I love to prep her skin with MAC Strobe Cream in Peachlite (this adds hydration to the skin and gives it a soft glow before putting on foundation). To add more dimension and make sure the face is illuminated in the right areas, I use MAC Hyper Real Glow Palette in Golden."
Dr. Contessa Metcalfe
"On Contessa, I like to use brown and copper tones to achieve a natural soft look."
Dr. Simone Whitmore
"I like to use the same tone concealer as her foundation under the eye to blend with her foundation, so it gives a beautiful clean skin look."
Dr. Jacqueline Walters
"I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder to give her skin an airbrush finish."
