No matter how mean your cut crease may be, when Naomi teaches you how to put on your makeup, you listen. I have to admit that I don't know much about doing makeup, I'm still trying to get contouring down, but Naomi Campbell just dropped a quick makeup tutorial that will have you looking like a supermodel in no time. Using an array of NARS products, the 49-year-old showed us how she gets her face all the way together for a natural, every day look that anybody could pull off.
These are the 7 products Naomi Campbell uses for an on-the-go glow:
She starts by applying NARS Soft Matte Concealer in Amande to her T-zone, upper lip, and cheekbones using a wedge-shaped sponge while leaving the outer areas untouched. Naomi suggested only applying concealer to specified parts of the face to create a more natural look.
"You always have to get a good balance and make sure it's even right under the nose, above the mouth."
She uses a medium-sized brush to apply NARS Mountain Pressed Powder to the oiliest parts of her face to remove shine, again, leaving her forehead untouched and focusing on her T-zone and cheekbones.
"I don't want my base to ever look like a mask. I want to just look like I don't have anything on."
Using another brush, Naomi used this Contour Blush palette to define on her cheeks, under her neck, and above her eyelids.
For the next step, the supermodel applied a bright-colored blush to her upper cheekbones. Naomi said that while on vacation, she'll apply a little more blush on top of the eyes. She never applies it to her lower cheekbones because it takes away from her bone structure.
Naomi shared that she prefers powder highlighters and that her favorite of them all comes from a NARS Cheek Pallete. She mixes a neutral gold and a rose gold from this palette to give her just the right glow.
"This one's one of my favorites: I like powder highlighters. I think they're easier. It's also nice to just put a little highlighter down the nose."
After retaching for her coveted contour palette to finish shading her nose and neck, Naomi uses a large spooley to groom her brows and gets her lip gloss poppin'. It pretty much seems like Naomi created pink lip color with this vibrant mix of Outrage and Sexual Content.
According to Naomi, your day can never be too casual to rock a vibrant, purple eyeshadow. Naomi pulled her amazing 10-minute look together by applying a bold amount of purple eyeshadow and a gold highlighter from the NARS Tropical express palette to her eyelids and lower brow.
There you have it folks! If you're dying to know the 10-minute routine that will help you serve supermodel face all damn day, check out Naomi's full tutorial below!

September is National Self-Care Awareness Month, so for my girlies who have been putting off self-care, here’s your opportunity to start. Self-care means exactly what it says: taking care of self. Why is it important? Well, many of us have busy lives that may include careers, family, and activities that consume us daily. Taking some time for self regularly can help prevent depression, stress, anxiety, and burnout.
In February 2023, Future Forum polled 10,243 people in six countries, including the U.S., and 40% said they are experiencing burnout, and 46% of that number are women. According to CNBC, many factors contributing to burnout include companies demanding employees return to the office, hiring freezes, and layoffs.
Psychologist Debbie Sorensen explained to CNBC why women and millennials are experiencing burnout in higher numbers. “We haven’t had time to recover from the trauma of what we’ve been through the last few years,” she said. “Women and young people, in particular, are putting an immense amount of pressure on themselves to keep going, keep working, no matter the cost.”
As women, particularly Black women, we tend to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Other people's problems become our problems, and then we are expected to show up to work and show up for our family and friends with a smile on our faces. Whew, chile! What if we are having a bad day? How are we supposed to cope if we have to be everything to everyone? Well, here’s your sign to make time for yourself, especially on the days when you are feeling down.
Below is a list of self-care ideas for when you are having a bad day.

Spend time in nature
Sometimes something as simple as surrounding yourself with trees, grass, and/ or water can improve your mood exponentially. The American Psychological Association’s (APA) research shows that spending time in nature can improve attention, lower stress, and reduce the risk of psychiatric disorders.
Got to a Spa
There’s nothing like going to a spa. You can relax in a sauna, get a massage, and just be. According to research, massages help release serotonin and dopamine, which are often referred to as “feel good” hormones, that will instantly perk you up and have you going about your day with a smile on your face.
When was the last time you did arts and crafts? Drawing a picture, painting, or even coloring can help you discover your inner child, thus boosting your mood. Purchase an adult coloring book, or go to a paint-and-sip class by yourself, or you can make it a group activity and bring your besties.
Look your best
The old saying, “When you look good, you feel good,” didn’t just come out of thin air. There’s some truth to it. The Kentucky Counseling Center shared a link between self-care and feeling good. “Self-care regimens are extremely important not just to stabilize your day but to make you feel great. Simple things like getting a facial, taking care of your hair done, or exercising can make you confident because when you look good, you also feel good,” according to its website.

There’s a reason why it is suggested that you breathe when you begin feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. Breathing brings oxygen back into your body, and WebMD reports that it can decrease the fight or flight response that happens when you are stressed.
Spend time with babies
I don’t know about you, but nothing makes me smile quicker than a baby, especially a smiling baby. If you’re the same way, then spending time with a baby or babies may help put you in a better mood, too.
Last but certainly not least, do nothing. There’s nothing like laying in your bed and not being forced to do anything. Stay in this moment and use this time to relax and replenish your energy.
