LOTD: Jordin Sparks for bebe inspired

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

So the movie Sparkle debuted in the US a few weeks ago and it stars American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.  I never really watched the show, but I think she has a good voice and lately she has been everywhere with her new svelte, healthy body!  This is also the last movie done by one of the greatest voices of our time, Ms. Whitney Houston! I still in ah lil shock!

Anyway, so I saw this poster where Jordin Sparks appeared in an ad campaign for the clothing store bebe as a promo for Sparkle.

It was glamorous, without being over the top.  It was actually similar to a look that I did on Jannelle here, but with updated technique.  This would be a good Labour Day/Carnival look,  and it’s actually really simple.  A gold glitter.  And I used a new method of applying lashes that I picked up at The Makeup Show from artist Johnny LaVoy!  I even included a foundation (!), which I never wear, but I was intrigued when I purchased  it at the Mehron booth at IMATS NYC earlier this year.

Here’s the look!

FOTD: Inspired by Adele

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Hey!!

So I have wanted to do a look inspired by Adele for a long time now.  Adele is an amazing chanteuse! I love her voice, her look, her style, vibes, everything!   Her albums are full of true, true tabanca songs.  She’s just stunning to me!

Adele’s signature style seems to be modern 60’s makeup.  The focus is always the eyes, winged out liner, full, flirty lashes and the rest of the face is understated. Nude lips, matte foundation, cheek contouring and not a lot of shimmer.  She also follows this up with full, sexy, voluminous hair and spiked nails.  I love it all! It matches her personality and curvy figure well and I hope she does not succumb to societal pressures.

Anyway, I saw the October 2011 cover of Vogue UK and had to a look based on it.
