THE INSPIRATION

“I was inspired by a young Hispanic girl in New York. She’s really confident and likes herself –  she doesn’t entertain all the makeup tricks “contour, foundation & powder” she goes straight for a strong lip. This is a sophisticated update on the heavily-lined lip from the 90’s. I played with the color and application on the lips, kept the rest of the face clean and bare, and brushed gloss through her brows to keep it young. It’s beauty with attitude.”
—Mark Carrasquillo for NARS Cosmetics

The year is fast approaching to a close, but this might be the most exciting time of the year! At least in the US, it’s when everyone is going to have massive sales just in time for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas.  Many business wait for this time to have their deepest discounts and it is a great time to pick up that high priced item you have been looking at all year. Or this is the time to stock up on all of your favourite hair care products. I usually get the jumbo sized versions of my holy grail products that last me for more than a few months into the new year.  I also take advantage of the discounts to do all my Christmas shopping!

I will be compiling a list of beauty, makeup and natural hair related sales and discounts that are happening during the week of Black Friday/Cyber Monday.  Black Friday this year is on November 27, 2015 and Cyber Monday is the following Monday.  I will include as many natural hair and related black-owned small businesses.

So sign up below, for my email newsletter to get these deals straight to your inbox!

LOTD: Lupita Nyong’o’s US Vogue October 2015 cover + opulent autumn look

Lupita Nyong’o US Vogue October 2015. Makeup by Nick Barose for Lancome and hair by Vernon Francois. Image source Huffington Post

When the first pictures of the October Vogue cover crossed the news feeds, we all collectively gasped and shouted ‘Yaaaaasssssss!’. ‘Yaaaaaaaasssssss!’ Lupita slayed!  The look is not overly fancy but super luxurious and I knew instantly I had to recreate the look.  Although it is 2015, seeing a woman of colour in on a major magazine cover is still quite uncommon and they often share covers during the same month. So *obviously* , I had to go out and buy it.  As I flipped through her spread, I was so impressed! She is not a model, but between the herself, the stylists/artists and who ever organised the shot did a fantastic job! They knew exactly what would look amazing on her! And could we for a moment talk about her skin? Gawd!  Like butter! Just proves that amazing skin and skincare should be the focus of your beauty routine.  And her hair! Love when she wears a side part and I also love that she is always switching it up.  You can totally have short, natural hair and it can be so versatile.

So I selected the picture of Lupita in the gorgeous blue dress by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Haute Couture.

UGHHHHHHH! This dress! This look!! Source

The focus of the makeup look was flawless skin and deep aubergine lip, but there was also a hint of green colour surrounding the eyes.  It’s a very wearable look, not overworked, not over contoured/highlighted, but is bold and packs a punch!

Here is what I came up with.
