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!

Do you want to ease into summer? Pret a Papier is here to help!

M.A.C. continues to roll out collection after collection and Pret a Papier is one of its latest ones.

It’s actually a fairly subtle collection – nothing bright, bold nor too sparkly.  This would be a collection for people who are afraid of a lot of colour.  It’s mostly neutrals with small elements of summer i.e. peaches and corals. This would also work well for those with fair to tan skin tones.

One item that people might love is the nail lacquer in Originality. This is a bright bronze colour with shimmer and flakies.  Flakies????? Yeah, flakies are becoming more and more popular in polishes.  They look like flakes, not glitter,but irregular flakes that are suspended in the polish and often they are opalescent or prism-like in the way they look.  Very cool!  They just add another dimension to the polish.  This has a foil-like finish as opposed to a glittery one.

This one did not speak to me.  It’s a nice collection – but it’s just that, nice……

I love bolder, brighter, more vibesy colours.  So great…..this allows me to save for the upcoming summer stuff. :-)!

Here are a few swatches……….
