Teyonah Parris is most recently known for her roles as Lysistrata in Spike Lee's satirical film Chiraq, Missy Vaughn in the StarzTV show Survivor's Remorseand the star of TV One's Original Miki Howard Biopic, Love Under New Management. Here, Teyonah is wearing an everyday natural look with a creamy burgundy lip. Below the break, I've made a list of affordable drugstore beauty favorites as well as the steps required to recreate this look at home.

Always start with a clean, moisturized face.
  1. Apply Maybelline Baby Skin Primer Instant Pore Eraser to your face, paying close attention to cheeks and other areas that pores appear the greatest.
  2. Fill in and shape brows with the Maybelline Master Shape Eyebrow Pen. The spoolie wand on the end of this pen makes taming brows a breeze! 
  3. To create a beautiful, yet subtle cat-eye like Teyonah's, line the upper eyelid with e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner in black
  4. To give your lashes a fuller look, first apply Ecotools Naturally Beautiful Lash System in Naturally Lush. This lash system comes complete with lashes, adhesive, and a tool for easy application. If you need help with applying your lashes, check out this in-depth YouTube video from AshleyDBeauty. Follow up by applying Maybelline Volum' Express Lift-Up Mascara to the lashes. 
  5. For a flawless, natural complexion, apply Black Radiance Color Perfect Oil-Free Foundation to your face (and neck if needed). Then set your foundation with Black Radiance Pressed Powder.
  6. To add a nice, subtle highlight to your face, apply a flush of Black Radiance Artisan Baked Bronzer to places where light naturally hits the face (ie, the arch of your brow or the bridge of your nose).
  7. To finish up the look,  add an application of NYX Butter Lipstick in Licorice to the lips. 
Now, you have a simple celebrity inspired look that could be worn for any occasion!
