You can have Kim Kardashian, this is beauty. Simple, clean, real. Being a woman who loves herself, respects herself, and carries herself like a lady is more beautiful than all the cosmetic surgery and contour in the world.
I know this picture is old, but I love Solange Knowles in it. The center parted hair, the high arched bold eye brows, the perfect purple liner, and the falsies are the perfect look for her. I was okay when she went all Amber Rose on us…we technically she did it first so Amber Rose when Solange Knowles…but this full hair softens her face and her make up draws the viewer to her huge eyes. I say kudos to whoever styled this shoot, standing ovation.
Red lips are the hottest trend this season. The perfect collection of reds was just pulled from the Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2011 runway. Dolce and Gabbana’s Pat McGrath, lead make up artist and consultant, said “Thre three reds were chose are very luscious, shades I’ve worked with time and again on the runway. I’ve played with them a lot-I’ve mixed them together, used them solo-and have come up with very rich passionate looks. And Nude is so perfect for contrast or a really simple natural look… they’re all just gorgeous… overall stunning.”
The quad color compact features Nude, Dahlia, Ultra, and Devil. Nude, of course, is a very pale tan with a matte pale pink appearance. Dhalia, to the right, has a deep pink feel with almost an amaranth hue. Ultra, below nude, is a warm holiday red. Finally, Devil is a high energy hard hitting brilliant red. No matter who you are you will LOVE at least one of these shades. Find them at saks.com ($60).
I just bought the MAC Haute and Naughty mascara. I very rarely purchase MAC products, I know I’m one of those weird people, but this product was a must have at the top of my cosmetic shopping list. It’s double applicator feature makes it easy to go from day to night. The pink tip defines and lengthens eyelashes while the purple tip kicks up the lash drama. Only $18 online or in stores.
