It’s almost unbelievable that legendary Supermodel, Beverly Johnson just turned 61-years-old. That old saying “black don’t crack” is forever true in her case. We caught up with celebrity makeup artist, Rodney Jon who is the man behind her makeup brushes. He’s worked with celebrities in many genres including Marsha Ambrosius, Draya Michele, Elle Varner, Chef Roble, Dawn Richards and Nina Sky.
Now, he’s giving us insider details on how to create Beverly’s flawless natural look.
“The vision of the look was to keep it very ‘clean, fresh and modern.’ I wanted to keep it very simple, and use earth tone colors to capture her features and enhance her natural beauty,” Rodney Jon explains.
Skin: I prepped her face with Aveda Tourmaline Charged Radiance Fluid, Aveda Tourmaline Charged Hydrating cream, MAC Natural Radiance Face Primer, Darci Lip conditioner and Peter Thomas Roth eye cream. I used Bobbi Brown foundation stick in the color of #7 to highlight her skin and Bobbi Brown foundation in the color of #8 to lightly contour her face. I finished the skin with Black Opal invisible oil blocking powder.
Cheeks: MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Dark to create more shape and contour, Darci Mineral blush in Cinnabar was swept over her cheeks and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Champagne cream blush was used to highlight and give a healthy glow to her skin.
Eyes: Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer was applied first. MAC eye shadow Blanc Type was applied all over the lid with MAC eye shadow Expresso swept in the crease. Kiss strip Eyelashes #01, Maybelline Blackest black gel eye liner and Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara topped off her look.
Lips: Darci lip conditioner, Rodney Jon lipstick Pope Olive’ with a pop of Iman Crystal lipgloss in the center of the lip to give her lips high shine.

1. 11 Celebrity Hair Crushes
I don’t really need to explain what a hair crush is. Just know that we love every single thing about these 11 women and we’re totally down to trade tresses (or just their hair styles) as soon as they say the word. In the meantime, I’m just gonna gawk at what I know to be my hair crushes. Enjoy!
I am aware that Solange is notorious for the natural hair weave. But I love it anyways. Big hair always makes me smile.
3. Tracee Ellis Ross
I mean, doesn't everyone have have a crush on Tracee. Beyond that fact that she's enter her fab forties, she's mastered the art of tame those curls in an epic fashion.
4. Teyonah Parris
Teyonah is probably not on your radar, but she's on mine. The "Mad Men" actress doesn't shy away from showing her natural locks on the red carpet. And I adore her for that!
5. Christina Milian
Don't you just love Christina. Whether her hair is blonde, red or a deep dark brown--her hair is always laid! I want it.
What's a list without King Bey. The End.
7. Jill Scott
YAS! Jill Scott and her versatility always wow me. She's got a "I don't care what you really think" attitude that I love. I think I will attempt this style--stat.
8. Taraji P. Henson
Ahh Taraji. Kisses to the stylist who keeps this DC native fly, fierce, and fabulous. She makes me want to hire a flunky to carry a fan to enhance my flow time.
9. Keke Palmer
The ombre, the finger waves, the length--I want this too. I personally know her stylist and I plan to sell my ovaries in exchange for her hair appointment.
How does she do it? It's long, it's short--it's always flawless and fabulous. Ciara has never met a hairstyle that didn't work for her. I hate it!
RiRi has been slaying the hair game since she stepped on the scene. And this Halle Berry remix style is doing the most--but in a very awesome way!
12. Jordin Sparks
Oh Jordin. I love her. Her tresses looks so healthy and soft. I've never touched them but I can imagine that they feel like my favorite Barbie doll from the 80's.
