Celeb Looks: The Adele Cat Eye

22 Feb

If you’ve seen Adele perform, or heard her songs on the radio, then you already know how talented she is. Last week she tied Beyonce’s record as the only female recording artist to win 6 Grammys in one night. And at 23 years she’s the youngest artist to ever  do so; this record previously belonged to the late great Michael Jackson who was 25 when he won the Thriller Grammys. PROLIFIC.

My question for you is, have you ever stopped to notice her makeup? Chile her face is B-E-A-T! *snaps fingers* See for yourself…


Celeb Looks: The Cynthia Bailey Smoky Eye

10 Feb

I’m one of those annoying people who comment the aesthetic appearance of cast members when I watch a tv show or movie. I can’t help myself, it’s a disease… LOL! Cynthia Bailey’s face is so BEAT! Whenever I watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I get emotional over her makeup. Her signature look is a smoky eye that incorporates shades of gray, brown or blue. See for yourself…

Guess who’s a spokeswoman/model for Fashion Fair Cosmetics?

Celebrity Looks: Purple Eye

21 May

Don’t you just love the color PURPLE?! (while I love that movie, I’m referring to the actual color itself… LOL) It’s feminine, yet strong… regal, yet accessible. Purple eye makeup is unique in that it can accentuate every eye color & any complexion. There are so many different shades of purple in the color spectrum & a wide variety of makeup options choose from (purple eyeshadow, pigments, glitters, eyeliners, even mascaras) you can definitely find something purple that looks good on you! So if you haven’t already, please give purple a try! *DISMOUNTS SOAPBOX & TOSSES MICROPHONE*

DO THE PRETTY GIRL ROCK! I love Keri Hilson’s purple smoky eye with black eyeliner & golden sparkles along her tearducts… Notice the way it makes her hazel eyes POP?

Tyra’s neutral makeup compliments her shimmery lavender eyeshadow superbly… *taking notes*

Rachel McAdams looks fresh as a lilac in her understated purple makeup.

Thandie Newton is minimalist in this version of the purple smoky eye… To re-create it smudge purple eyeshadow on your eyelid & waterline, line your upper lashine in black eyeliner, add mascara & GO!

I saw this photo in an Ulta sale paper & fell in love with their interpretation of a purple smoky eye… it’s smoky, yet spring-timey all at once!

Rihanna keeps it punk-tastic with her matte eyeshadow in electric violet!

So we’re not exactly celebrities, but we are wearing purple! My brother & were I up to our usual shenanigans on Resurrection Sunday… we were trying to create our own version of the Stepbrothers DVD cover… LOL!

Stay tuned for my interpretation of the purple eye…

Celeb Looks: Smoky Blue

19 May

These pics are living proof that blue eyeshadow makes brown eyes pop & face it folks: smoky eyes are just plain sexy. What’s not to love?! There are many ways to achieve a blue smoky eye, these are just a few examples… ENJOY!

Solange is smoking hot in a bluish-gray that extends to her lower lashline & look-at-me lashes! NOTE: When you wear subtle colors on your lips & face, your eyes take center stage!

This look demonstrates a linear gradation of blue to gray, using eyeshadows w/ shimmer finish & a nude lip. BTW, I'm LOVING the contour & highlight on her cheeks!

Beyoncé keeps it simple w/ this monochromatic smoky eye in sapphire blue (matte finish), peachy blush & sheer pink lip gloss.

Tyra looks positively "FEE-US" in this navy smoky eye & bold berry lips! I LOVE IT! BTW, I need these earrings AND this hairdo... LOL

  Stay tuned for my interpretation of the smoky blue look…
