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.

So J. Lo has been making a comeback and she is one of the latest spokespersons for L’Oreal.  I saw this ad in a magazine for L’Oreal Colour Riche le Gloss, where the look was very glossy and smokey.

She has been rocking the heavy, defined, black liner with thick, dense lashes on magazine covers and other ads.

Anyway, here she has pointed liner, peachy-bronzey eyeshadow, peach lips, full brows and full lashes.

This is what I came up with:

Summer makeup!

Hey!!!

It’s hot in NYC and I love it!!! When the weather gets hot and humid, you need to keep your makeup simple and long lasting.

Here are a few of my favourite items that I think are important and can withstand the summer heat!

Sunscreen

You really should wear sunscreen everyday of the year, but during the summer months when the sun’s rays are at their strongest, you need something to protect your skin from premature aging and sun damage.  Also, don’t forget to reapply often if you are going to be outdoors for long periods or perspiring.  I switch between a regular moisturizer with SPF and a tinted moisturizer with SPF.  Doesn’t matter what you use, just protect your skin!!!
