"We used that as our source of inspiration for glam, and we put a lot of emphasis on achieving a glowy, kind of sinister siren vibe." The skin has a gorgeous pearly sheen all over it, and there are highlights that have been strategically put on the face. After that, we applied some liner to the eyelids and heavily smeared and diluted it so that it appeared more integrated and less like a major eyeliner moment.'

Kale utilized a variety of items from the Milk Makeup line in order to do this, such as the internet-famous Hydro Grip Primer and the Sculpt Cream Contour Stick. Her inherent radiance was accentuated by the Bionic Glow, which was applied to the skin as a primer before to the application of foundation.
