I was so excited to create my Youtube video yesterday! I ended up shooting over 25 minutes of beauty news, and ended up with this. I had no idea what look I was going for, but one color led to another, and this is what I ended up with!
Mally beauty created the look for the Tracy Reese 2012 Spring/Summer Fashion Week show. For this gorgeous cheek, Mally’s team used 24/7 Cream Blush kit in Medium High. This looks like the perfect easy-to-wear brown girl pink blush! I’m totally a fan of orange and pink blush on Women of Color, so this gets me giddy. Check out this video tutorial where I wear one of my favorite pink blushes, MAC Azalea.
Kim Kardashian. I don’t watch her shows, could care less what products she sells. The media doesn’t really depict her in the most positive light. But, her body shape is a lot like mine, so I do check out her fashion from time to time. With that being said…
I live for her makeup.
The girl is effin’ gorgeous. She’s pretty without makeup, and stunning with it on. Best of both worlds! She’s one of my makeup role models. Because I’m a fan of her makeup (and I love weddings), I was dying to see photos of her big day. Here’s what she wore, care of Mario Dedivanovic and Lancôme Paris!
Her eyes were sculpted with Color Design 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Frenzy. This bronzy quad is a great use of every day shades for a special occasion. Lips were coated a soft orange with L’Absolu Nu Lipstick in Coral Sand and La Laque Fever Lipgloss in Ravishing Coral.
My Summer beauty routine is always a quick event. I hate wearing a lot of makeup, especially when it’s hot out! I do my DIY Tinted Moisturizer for a glowy face. For a bronze effect, I use an orange blush (this time I used Nars Exhibit A) and a bronzer (in this picture I used Cover Girl Queen Natural Hues Bronzer in Ebony Bronze.)
This was a super simple, 6 minute look. I was having dinner with some friends, and wanted to step out of the neutral zone. Here’s what I came up with. The look was inspired by Oprah’s look when she interviewed Nadya Suleman [aka octomom] last week. I didn’t realize that I rely on MAC for a lot of my looks! Thought I switched it up, but maybe not?
