Taraji P. Henson‘s look as Empire‘s Cookie Lyon has been named No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter’s list of Hollywood’s 25 Best Beauty Moments of 2015.
Not only has the Cookie Lyon character reinvigorated Taraji P. Henson’s career, droves of Empire fans are mimicking the character’s fearless onscreen style.
Fan pages devoted to Cookie’s beauty, including tens of thousands of YouTube tutorials on how to re-create the diva’s makeup, have flooded the Internet this year.
Well, according to Ashunta Sheriff, the artist behind Henson’s looks, both on screen and off it, “Cookie is uninhibited, and that is giving women the courage to try new things. She isn’t afraid of the trends.“
