It’s no secret that Ayesha Curry is absolutely gorgeous, but there’s so much more to her than her beauty (like these six things I learned after hanging out with her). The mother of two and wife to Steph Curry isn’t focused on being glammed up 24/7, despite her incredible lifestyle — she actually doesn’t spend too much time on her makeup (with the exception of her always strong brow game) when she’s not in the spotlight.
I recently got to tag along on an all-day photo shoot with her and was able to to get the scoop from makeup artist Ashley Bias about Ayesha’s fave products, plus some insider tips Ashley uses to get her looking extra gorgeous. Ashley describes Ayesha’s makeup mindset as, “Not super picky and very easy to work on.” Bias uses the products below for photo shoots, but also turns to these tried-and-true makeup items for big events like the ESPY Awards, where Ayesha slayed (as you can see in the Insta pic above). Scroll down to see Ayesha’s makeup artist’s tips and which products she swears by.
1. Using two blushes is key.
2. Matte Bronzer is her go-to for contouring.
“I love using Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer ($29) on Ayesha to contour her cheekbones. It’s buildable and never shimmery, which I love for her.”
3. Setting products are crucial.
4. Use lightweight foundation for a natural look.
“Ayesha always wants her skin to look soft and light. Her skin isn’t shiny at all, so we use NARS Sheer Glow Foundation ($45) a lot. It covers really well but isn’t cakey,” Ashley said. “When it’s time for a touchup, I’ll freshen up her T-zone with a mattifying foundation when it does get a little shiny.”
5. DIY lashes for a customized look.
“I feel like mink lashes are heavy on the eyes sometimes, so I like to make my own lash combos. I use affordable lashes like Ardell Glamour Wispies Black Lashes ($4) — I love using these — and then I’ll add individuals in the center to open up her eyes. This method helps me cater to each individual eye shape,” Ashley said.
