Beauty Bonus: Easy Does it
The Hair: To create voluminous waves for Keisha Whitaker, cocreator of the lip gloss line Kissable Couture, Ted Gibson, owner of the Ted Gibson Salons, used a medium-sized round brush to blow out her hair straight. Then, starting at the back, he carefully wrapped two-inch sections of hair around a medium-barrel curling iron to make tight ringlets. With his fingers, he worked a quarter-sized dollop of Ted Gibson Tame It Shine Lotion from roots to ends as he tousled the curls to loosen them up. A middle part attracts attention to Whitaker's eyes and mouth.
The Makeup: Warm, neutral colors were Lancôme makeup artist Sandy Linter's choice. After Linter applied foundation to Whitaker's face, she swirled pink blush over her cheeks. Then she lined Whitaker's upper lids with dark brown pencil and added a dark brown shadow from lash to crease. She lined the lower rim of Whitaker's lids before applying two coats of black mascara. Whitaker's nude gloss, from her own line (in First Lady, a shade inspired by Michelle Obama), let her lipcolor show through.
