I have so much to tell you all, I can’t give any clues. But, check out this video, backstage at The Blonds. It’s totally ridic. Had the TIME OF MY LIFE!!!! So happy to have been included!!! I was even featured on a Cotourture.com with Darian from the MACPro store!!! Wow!!! Can you find me?!?! Stay tuned for ALL of the details!!!
I must truly thank all of you for your support during the few short weeks of the Black Weblog Awards. I was really shocked to be nominated, and I was just short of dumbfounded when I saw the final results! SB was the judges pick for the Best Style and Fashion Award. Fabulous. We were nominated with the amazing Afrobella and The Fashion Bomb (which I read all the time, Claire is a fabulous writer). Who says that beauty blogging is all fluff?? It feels absolutely amazing to be recognized for my baby, Scandalous Beauty. Check out all of the other winners here!
The “no makeup” makeup look seems to be a prominent trend inside the tents. I’m freakin’ loving the gray, just FYI. To rock this look, use concealer only on uneven spots of the face. Set with an undetectable powder, such as Make Up For Ever HD Powder. View the entire show here at NYMag.com. Fashion Week is off to a fabulous start!
It’s Friday the 5th, the official kick-off date of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!!!! This may be just another week for some, but it’s a HUGE deal to many!!! As you know, I’ll be front and center in NYC covering all kinds of events. I love fashion, who doesn’t?? But I’m in it for the trends, the ambiance, the scandal. There’s even a HUGE surprise in store, for you all, and for myself!!!
I’ll be sure to highlight the Spring and Summer trends in beauty, and I’ll definitely be sure to show off as many brown girls as possible. Speaking of which, NYMag.com highlights 10 models to watch, including Sessilee Lopez (above) and Arlenis Sosa (below).
You may or may not know this, but MAC Pro has Fashion Week on LOCK! What’s even more exciting is that you can follow nine Senior Artists as Fashion Week progresses via Twitter. Scandalous Beauty has a special widget on the right hand side where you can get alerts, or you can follow them yourselves! Be careful…Twitting is addicting!!!
One of my beauty resolutions was to keep my brows on point. Some people’s brows grow at a glacial rate, while others (like yours truly) have hairs popping up every other hour. I love getting a fresh wax, or better yet, a painful threading session, and to see that lovely sculpted arch!!! I have to be on point for Fashion Week, and brows are very, very high on my to-do checklist next week. Anastasia Beauty is definitely my top pick as far as brows are concerned. I bought the stencils last year, and trust me, they are really, really handy!! You can completely fake a perfect arch!! Sadly for me, I’ll have to grow my brows so that I may achieve the perfect look. For this, I’m using Brow Enhancing Serum. This is a scary thought, but it’s a must.
Why do I trust Anastasia? Well, she’s arched the brows of dozens of A-listers, including Oprah, Naomi, Jada and Jenny from the Block. I remember hearing that Oprah flew to Beverly Hills just for her brow appointment, then came right back. I’m testing out a few products from the line, and I’ll be sure to give you the real!!!
