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!

The Makeup Show NYC 2011: The Big Show!!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Finally my last post on The Makeup Show! I’ve waited for this all year and it did not disappoint! The biggest show ever, now occupied 2 floors of the Metropolitan Pavilion! I was a little overwhelmed.  More vendors than before and the main theme of the event centred around education of the artist on new techniques, product lines, marketing yourself etc.  One of the best things were the PRO Pods, which allowed experts to connect one-on-one artists to exchange ideas.

I spent the day attending as many workshops that I could and I also did a little bit of shopping (of course!!!).  Met some new people, caught up with some old friends and had an amazing time!!!

Enough talk! Here are the pictures!!! And again, if we took pictures together, tag me or let me know!!!

Enjoy!
