Taraji P. Henson, Ashunta Sheriff Cover THR’s Beauty Issue
The Hollywood Reporter recently unveiled their dual-cover beauty issue and our girl Taraji P. Henson was selected as one of their cover girls, along with her makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff, who styles the actress both on and off the set of “Empire.” During the interview, Sheriff explained that they’re a lot more “exploratory” with trying different looks in Henson’s life than they are with Cookie.
“Cookie has a few lipstick color and one basic lash,” said Sheriff, who stars on one of two covers with Henson for The Hollywood Reporter’s 2015 Beauty Issue. “We have to keep it like that because she’s a character and that works for her character.”
Henson adds that they always avoid Cookie’s signature looks when they’re not on set.
“I try to stay as far away from Cookie as possible when I’m on the red carpet,” said the actress. “I like to be Taraji. I have enough of Cookie.”
The issue also features portraits of other Hollywood beauties with their glam squads—including Lupita Nyong’o. Reese Witherspoon and her makeup artist, Molly R. Stern.
