Since breaking onto the fashion scene in 2015, activist, actress, and model Hari Nef has never been afraid to pull back the curtain on her life. And providing an unfiltered, fly-on-the-vanity look into her beauty routine is no exception. Before a night out in New York City, the brunette serves up the beauty secrets behind her “below 14th Street aesthetic,” replete with her signature pithy one-liners: “I hear David Lynch writes all his scripts when he’s putting on his makeup,” she says. Beginning with a concealer pen in “whatever color anemic is,” Nef brushes the creamy formula underneath her eyes with her fingertips as a warming trick. For a “bicycle hazard glow,” she breaks out a mystery highlighter housed in an inconspicuous square compact, then taps the iridescent powder along the upper cheekbones, brow bones, and cupid’s bow for an overall shimmering effect. She seals in the strobe with feather-light sweeps of setting powder that doesn’t make her look “too dusty, just lusty,” she says. On the eyes, she traces a deep brown liner into the upper and lower lash lines before blending pink and mahogany shadows onto her lids for a dusty rose smoky eye. Then she preps her lashes with a primer before showing off a custom bedazzled mascara wand. After a few unintentionally heavy-handed strokes of blush on her razor-sharp cheekbones (it happens, and she makes it work), Nef runs a slick of MAC’s Lipglass over her mouth. “It’s lip gloss but with a Boston accent,” says the Massachusetts native. Finally, because “an evening look is direly incomplete without a fragrance,” Nef mists Gucci Bloom, the forthcoming white floral fragrance for which she is a campaign face. And just like that, Nef is ready for anything the lower half of the city has to offer. “Maybe I’ll fall in love,” she says. “Maybe I’ll fall in a dumpster. Maybe I’ll run into Sarah Jessica Parker on the street—I’ve been waiting on that for, like, six years and it still hasn’t happened.” A girl can always hope.Read more at:http://www.marieprom.co.uk/prom-dresses-uk | http://www.marieprom.co.uk/cocktail-dresses-uk
