The Atlanta-based MUA has worked with other celebrities, including Toya Johnson, Reginae Carter, Dess Dior, Kaliii, India Love, Jordyn Woods and Mehgan James.

What was your original idea for Koryn Hawthorne’s makeup look?

For her look, I just wanted to do something soft, [so] that I could build on [it] and make [it] more dramatic later throughout the different looks.

How did the song inspire you to create the makeup look?

The song is very soft, and even the scenery makes me want to use nudes and warm tones to build up the dimension of her eyes. That’s why I went with a very soft look, and then we gave her some glow because we were outside and the light was hitting. I also gave her a nude lip, but [added] bomb lashes because she still has to be glam.

What do you think of the song?

I just heard a bunch of her new music, and this song is one of her best. It’s beautiful, it makes you feel at peace, and makes you feel gratitude. It makes you appreciate God and everything that we have. Yeah, I love it. It’s beautiful.

Below are some Black-owned makeup products below to help recreate Hawthorne’s look from the music video.
