If you’re part of the Lori Harvey army, you know she’s the epitome of Black elegance.
From carrying Birkin bags to owning a luxury skincare brand, Lori is, for sure, on her way to becoming the next African-American billionaire.
And let’s not talk about her sophisticated glamour and stunning makeup looks – this goddess undoubtedly influences every beauty enthusiast’s routine.
So, if you’ve always wanted to pull off a head-turning Lori Harvey makeup look, here’s your chance.
Below, Lori’s go-to 10-minute, 90s-inspired makeup routine.
She Starts With Skincare
In a recent interview with Vogue, the SKN by Lori Harvey founder admitted to having rosacea, a skin condition characterized by regular skin flare-ups. That’s why she gravitates to using products that are super-hydrating and calming.
Her favorite skincare products?
The SKN by LH collection, obvi. She starts with the SKN Goji Berry Cleanser ($38), which has a low PH meaning it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry and follows it up with the SKN Peptide Eye Complex ($45), which effectively depuffs and de-circles your peepers.
She’s also gaga about Supergoop! ’s Sunscreen, the Unseen SPF 40 ($20). It loads up the skin with a significant dose of moisture, soothes redness with frankincense, and keeps your skin looking Poreless – all while keeping it protected from UV-ray and infrared radiation damage. It’s, how do we put it, a freakin’ dream!
She Primes Her Face For Makeup
Ms Harvey loves to slick on the Laneige Lip Glowy Balm in Grapefruit ($17) before putting on any makeup. Its featherweight, moisture-coating formula hydrates your lips and gives them a sexy tint that lasts throughout the day.
She then preps for makeup with the Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primer ($42), that’s just a fantastic, skin-perfecting steal.
Afterwards, using a trick she learned from a friend, she powders her face with Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($40) since it allows her foundation to go on smoothly and flawless – zero pores.
Lori Goes Light With Her Makeup
Next, Lori Harvey sets with Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($33), which helps keep her makeup looking fresh for 8+hours without fading or setting into fine lines.
For foundation, Lori applies a mix of two Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation shades ($105) and then lightly contours with Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Matte Skinstick ($28). It’s weightless yet long-lasting and blends seamlessly to give you a creaseproof matte finish.
For concealer, the skincare queen uses the iconic NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($31), which is enriched with hydrating, multi-tasking ingredients and light diffusing technology to instantly blur imperfections and diminish signs of fatigue.
‘My earliest makeup tutorials were courtesy of my mother, who’d often have her makeup professionally done. I’d literally sit and stare as the makeup artist worked her magic until I learned to do it myself.’ Lori explained to Vogue as she perfected her brows with Kelley Baker’s six-piece kit and brow-enhancing powder.
Lori Makes Some Killer But Subtle Finishing Touches
After perfecting her brows, Ms Harvey swooshes over her face with the NARS Bronzing Powder ($38), which creates all-over warmth with a long-wearing, imperceptible finish.
Then it’s on to eyeshadow – the Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette ($54), to be exact. It comes with luscious bronzy, brown, and taupe shades that give you a flawless, natural-looking glow.
When her eyeshadow is nothing but perfect, Lori swirls the NARS Blush ($32) across her cheeks and then picks up the Patrick Ta Lip Liner ($26) and Pat McGrath’s Lust Lip Gloss ($29) for a glimmering, ultra-kissable supple pout.
Lastly, Ms Harvey goes with a light touch of Tom Ford’s Sheer Highlighting Duo ($89) to add some much-needed radiance before finishing with her best-kept secret – the Anastasia Beverley Hills Dewy Setting Spray ($26). The lightweight mist survives 14-hour shifts and heatwaves while allowing you to maintain a picture-perfect glow.
