[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Yes it’s 2014 and awards season has just started!  Last Sunday was the Golden Globes, which is thought of as a predictor to the Oscars.  I was just really interested in the fashion and makeup.  And waaaay before the show actually started, I was slayed, by Lupita Nyong’o!!  I thought that I was obsessed with Kerry Washington (I still love her), but this chick is flawless!!!!

When was the last time we saw a woman on the red carpet with a close cropped fade?? And that red dress??? The awards were over for me!  I cannot wait to see how her career unfolds!!

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!

Here’s my final installment of ‘So you want to wear makeup…‘, your basic, beginner’s guide to makeup.  Lip products are probably the first makeup items that young girls begin wearing.  Easy to use, inexpensive and you feel like you are wearing something, even if it’s a colourless product.
