To recreate any Janelle Monae look, you’ve got to start with flawless skin. After all, she has been the spokeswoman for Covergirl since 2012. Any good face routine starts with primed skin. Try the Maybelline Face Studio Master Prime Primer ($7.99, target.com). The “Blur + Pore Minimize” formula will give you that smooth, poreless finish to set the perfect base for foundation. Next, go in with the Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation ($11.99, ulta.com) to match Janelle’s natural, skin-like glow. It’s just enough to keep your skin looking like skin, with a lightweight formula that’s comfortable to wear. Now it’s time to bronze. Yes, bronzer is important for black girls, too. Adding warmth and color to the perimeter of the face adds back some of the dimension that a flat layer of foundation strips away. To match Janelle’s bronzy glow, try the e.l.f. Cosmetics Bronzer Palette in Deep ($6.00, target.com).
