FOTD: Scandal-inspired Kerry Washington EW cover look/Hiatus edition & Hair of the day

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey! So, I am OBSESSED with Scandal.  I am OBSESSED with Scandal!!!  I don’t think that there has been a TV show that literally affects me physically, emotionally.  I live for this show.   I plan my week around Scandal.  And I love how they style OP!  It’s amazing to see a strong, amazing, brilliant, successful woman who dresses so well! I want EVERYTHING in that closet! I am still crushing on a few of those dresses and that white coat she always wears.  We can have both, intelligence and a great sense of style! Yes I am a gladiator! I’ve been a fan of Kerry Washington for a long time and I love that she’s getting what’s due to her.  KW will always be Olivia Pope to me! Tony Goldwyn will always be the playa Prez Fitzgerald Grant III! And for the record, I ship Olitz all day long! Olitz for life! So I pretty much died last week when Entertainment Weekly hit the newstands!  LOVED it! Loved it! I had to recreate the look on Kerry Washington.

But before that……

If you haven’t seen Episode 218, you might want to skip to the next section…

***SPOILER ALERT***

So uhm…how insane is this Jake/Olivia/Fitz storyline! What’s Jake’s real situation? Who’s the mole?  Who’s the random black dude?   And I’m going to need Shonda and dem to stop messing with Huck!! I’m over seeing him being so tortured! 🙁 And these 3 week hiatuses? I see you ABC….I see you…I don’t know how I’m going to survive the next episodes.  I am still exhausted from Episode 218.  I usually am physically and emotionally drained after each episodes and my poor TV is tired of being screamed at.  I hear they are going to be gut –wrenching! Lawd….I can’t wait to see Episode 220, the episode directed by Tony Goldwyn (YUM!)

***END OF SPOILER***

So back to the tutorial!

Hot right??!! I loved this super sultry bronzed smoky eye look.  And the full-on lashes made the look for me.  Perfected skin, nude shimmery lips, corally cheeks.  I did something that I don’t usually do, I added lower false lashes.

So on to the look!

LOTD: A Pink Summer Look

Hey,  just a quick LOTD.

Saw this look done by Erin over @Makeup Fiend.  I love this look and I have not done it in a long time!!! So I worked it out!!!  Of course, it’s a great summer look, since it features golds and bronzes.  This look is an easy way to use pink, which some people find hard to use sometimes.  Also works well with other brights –  corals, teals etc. Not too bright, used the 224 brush so that it’s a wash of colour.

The Ingredients

  • TFSI
  • M.A.C. Material Gold Cream Eye Shadow (a shimmery pinkish champagne, applied to inner third of eyelid, with 224 brush)
  • M.A.C. Cocomotion Pigment (a midtone golden beige, on the center of eyelid with 224 brush)
  • MUFE # 56 Powder Blush (used as an eye shadow, a bright, dark fuschia matte colour, outer eyelid and outer crease, blended softly)
  • M.A.C. # 224 brush
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Shimmer Gel Liner in Black Mauve (brownish, mauve-ish black liner, on the upper and lower lashline)
  • Givenchy Magic Kajal in Black (shiny black liner, applied to the lower waterline, minimal smudging)
  • Maybelline Lash Stiletto in Very Black
  • Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar
