Taraji P. Henson remakes Michael Jackson’s Look in recent post on IG.
It was in an Instagram post that the actress and Empire star uploaded a selfie of herself that easily bore resemblance to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson.
As the combination of a wet and wavy look and bright lighting made for an optical illusion.
“Uuuuuuummmmmm kinda Trippy NO?
Hair and make up is something huh?
I think it’s the lighting,”
“If not I was supposed to be the 6th of the 5,”
Henson wrote in the caption. making reference to the Jackson 5.
Henson’s makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, later confirm that the lighting was to blame for the strong resemblance.
“Lighting makes a major difference in how your makeup appears,”
“Taraji has a yellow undertone and in her trailer the lights are fluorescent.
Where as in the #makeuptrailer the lights are natural light bulbs.
Anyone who is a pro knows that fluorescent lighting will turn your skin tone green and make you appear ashy.”
However, 50 Cent reacted with the caption:
“what the fuck is going on cookie,” 50 Cent penned in a brief roast. “LOL 🤨get the strap #lecheminduroi.”
