I Love This Look: Dolce & Gabbana Beauty at Milan Fashion Week

Dolce and Gobbana Beauty Smokey Eye Look

Want to know my go-to ‘night on the town’ look? It’s the non-smokey smokey eye. Dark all around the eye without all of the extra eyeshadow. Simple, and oh, so effective. Here’s the look at Dolce & Gabbana this week. Black and coffee eyeliners, plus eyeshadow quad in Femme Fatale were used for this look. Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation was applied all over face. The makeup team was lead by the one and only Pat McGrath.



Update–I Love This Look: Pink Cheeks on Brown Skin at Tracy Reese c/o Mally Beauty


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.

Halle Berry and Gucci Westman for Revlon

Fashion’s Night Out was jam packed throughout my Twitter timeline last night. The streets of fashionable cities all over the world threw parties (and had sales) in the name of Vogue. While I love the world of fashion, I’m forever indebted to the world of beauty. Icon Halle Berry and leading makeup artist Gucci Westman were the headliners for Rag & Bone in NYC. Don’t you love how stunning Halle looks? Barely there makeup is always in.
