hey say the fashion and beauty world never sleeps with each week bringing a line up of exciting events and celebrations worthy of our attention. Certainly, last week was no different with movie premiers, award shows, and private galas all taking a spot on our calendars. True to us, we claimed front row to the delightful spectacle that was peppered with Black women serving fashion and beauty looks that were nothing short of stunning. Thus, some celebrity beauty inspo to love.
For example, at the Elle Magazine Women in Hollywood dinner/award show, there was a good representation of beauty championed by Black women. From subtle to glam, edgy to delicate, women of color undoubtedly stole the show in statement looks. The same was true for the movie premiers as well as other events from last week. While fierce looks were the dominant theme, there was the occasional subtle and delicate takes.
Star girl Ciara evoked sultry in a glam by celebrity makeup artiste, Yolonda Frederick. The entire look focused on playing up the singer’s strong features — eyes and cheekbones — and the result was a hit. From thick brows, to heavily mascaraed lashes, dark-toned shadow and grey contact lens, every element certainly played it’s role. Another A-lister who played the eye-game was multiple award winner, Kerry Washington. The actress/producer/director turned up the heat in voluminous lashes and dark-toned shadow for the Elle Women in Hollywood dinner. To complete the look, she opted for gloss with a hint of shimmer that glided across her lips. We foresee rich detailed eyes taking center stage in the beauty space in the coming weeks. Inarguably, a celebrity beauty inspo to adore.
South African actress, Nomzamo Mbatha, stood tall in a twisted-locs updo that commanded a regal vibe. The hairstyle that begins as a simple updo takes an unexpected turn at the bun with twisted-locs that sat beautifully on top. The mane gave her a queen-y aura and the metallic pin details were surely the cherry on top.
