I love a pop of color! A vibrant, opaque, matte lip can take me a long way. Sometimes lipstick is all I need to turn my frown upside down. This HOT pink Nars Schiap is luscious and sexy and girly all at the same time!
Products, Secrets & New Obsessions
Being on stage requires different make-up than Red Carpet or shooting a TV show or a movie. Everything needs to be bold so the bright lights don’t wash you out (soft colors don’t really work) and because of HD make-up has to look flawless and has to hold up in the heat of those oppressively hot lights! With all this in mind I still like to look natural and like myself. This year at the Black Girls Rock awards show I rocked 4 different looks and because of quick changes we had too keep it simple. I thought it’d be fun to suggest a few different products that you can use to achieve the same look in everyday life.
Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick is hands down the best red ever and one of my beauty “must haves.” I’m never without it! It was the first lipstick I discovered in high school, and has been a staple of mine ever since. I’m known to wear lipstick for my workouts (it makes me feel pretty when I look in the mirror even if I’m covered in sweat) and Ruby Woo is what I use!
This is my favorite Mascara!!! I love spikey, spidery, twiggy-like lashes…so I load up on my COVERGIRL. You can get your own here!
