When Zendaya posts a beauty tutorial, we listen. She stole our hearts in Spider-Man: Homecoming, has a gorgeous singing voice and looks good in just about anything she wears (she has her own fashion line, after all).
Sure, Z’s glowing skin, bone structure and perfectly arched brows were probably helped by genetics, but we’ll try anything to get closer to that Zendaya glow. If it takes three minutes, even better. So, when she posted her “Bare Beat” tutorial on her YouTube channel, we were all over it.
First, she starts with a clean, moisturized face, adding cream concealer to acne scars and dusting with translucent powder. Next, she dabs on under-eye concealer and sets it with the powder again. She then applies bronzer, concentrating on her temples and cheekbones, followed by cream blush on the cheeks and across the nose.
For eyes, Z keeps it simple, using the same bronzer as an eyeshadow and a few coats of Covergirl’s The Supersizer Fibres Mascara on her lashes. She uses a taupe brown shade to define her brows.
The best part, which Zendaya calls ‘the magic step,’ is where she applies Aquaphor as a highlight (on the top of the cheekbones and down the centre of the nose, in Z’s case), adding a layer of powder highlighter ON TOP of the Aquaphor. No Aquaphor? No worries. Any clear balm will do.
Finally, she finishes the look with a swipe of clear lip gloss. You can watch Zendaya in all her beauty glory below:
