So New York Fashion Week is almost upon us and one reason why I love this event is that you get to see the makeup looks and face charts from various shows.  I loved this look from NARS for Sophie Thaellet SS 2011 collection.

A smoked-out eye and bold, sexy red lip!! Edgy and sophisticated at the same time.  I am going to have to check out Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio as it looks amazing, especially left as a matte colour!  Falls in line with my red lip obssession!

Anyone bought this colour?

She hails from the twin island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago but currently reside in the beauty/fashion capital of the world, New York City (Harlem to be exact!). She is passionate - well, obsessed - about beauty and in addition to blogging, she is also a corporate beauty professional and a budding web designer/developer. She loves combining her in-depth, practical knowledge with her chemist/scientific training to make your cosmetic choices fun and easy. She likes to take the guesswork out of beauty, separate the hype from what really works, to help you bring out the most beautiful you! She loves colour, and makeup, and she has been natural for years! She also loves great food, culture, sports and laid back vibes!
