First Look: DJ Havana Brown Embodies Soft Summer Beauty
Makeup artist May May’s blog Max Made is an endless source of inspiration, but it’s his editorial shoots that really blow us away. December’s cover story features DJ, singer and songwriter Havana Brown in a soft, romantic boudoir-inspired scene. Feminine but with a sultry edge—we’ve never seen her look like this before. May’s accompanying blog speaks to his long-standing desire to shoot beauty with Brown: "The one thing that remained the same throughout all my ideas was to capture a warm, seductive, yet dreamy side that I saw in her during the time we had spent together." Can we just say… goal = kicked. The makeup looks May created for Brown—a plum-spiked bronze eye and plum lips—are basically what we want out of life this party season.

May prepped Brown’s skin with cult favourite Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream ($125) and La Mer The Eye Balm Intense ($270). That lit-from-within skin is thanks to a pump of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ($66) in Moonstone mixed into La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF15 ($250). May also used Guerlain Illuminating Matte Powder ($211) like an "Instagram filter" to mattify and illuminate the areas under the eyes, across the tops of cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose and across the chin, and contour was added with Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette ($69).

May created the nude look above using a combo of La Mer The Lip Balm ($95), MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil ($42) in Nothing Sexier as well as the brand’s Lipstick ($36) in Crème dNude. This stunningly beautiful bordeaux pout came courtesy of Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Liner ($38) in Currant, and Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($50) in Insolent Plum.
