The Four Faces of Fabulous

Alright Ladies ( and Gents if you're just curious), I have given you the latest hairstyle, now it is time for the four faces of fabulous! In my opinion, there are four main looks that can be achieved and displayed fabulously. And they are as follows:

1) Subtle Eye, Dark Lips
What better example than the fashionista Rhianna. As we all have just spotted her on BET's red carpet Tuesday night, what stood out most about her makeup was her dark vixen-like matte lipstick, complimented by a burgundy lip line. As for her eyes, she rocked little to no color. With a simple black liner lining her lid and a few simple strokes of mascara, Rhianna looks fierce. Now it's your turn, give it a try.

For the eyes:

Mascara - M.A.C Mascara X

Liner - M.A.C Eye Pencil in Ebony

** As with Rhianna's look here, her eyes give off a shimmer/sheer look as if a creme based eye shadow is used. By all means, MAC has some of the best around. If you're on a budget here's my secret: Vaseline! Dab your finger in and take out just a little and smudge it across your lid. It definitely does the trick and gives off that glossy look.

For the lips:

Lipstick - MAC Lipstick in Dark Side or Odyssey

2) Subtle Eye, Soft Lip

Looks like Rhianna is Two for Two. With this pic, you can clearly see how much this star has grown and matured into a young woman. Going for a more subtle day time look? This is definitely the look you should be aiming for. For the eyes, a sleek black eyeliner and mascara will get you one step closer. As for the lips, a light sheer gloss will create a nude/skin tone lip color.

For the eyes:

Liner - MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder

Mascara - MAC Pro Lash in Coal Black

Shadow - MAC Cream Colour Base in Shell

For the lips:

Gloss - Tinted Lip Glass in Viva Glam V (it looks a little dark online, but trust me its a soft neutral pink gloss)


Blush - MAC Powder Blush in Raizin

3) Dark Eye, Soft Lip

Who can rock this look flawlessly better than Kim Kardashian?? As with most pics, here her eyes are skillfully defined with black liner and has an edge to them. With heavy black liner on both lids and lengthening/thickening Mascara, her eyes truly make a statement and pop out at you fiercely.

P.S This is my Favorite!!

For the eyes:

Liner - Both MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder

Mascara - MAC Plush Lash in Plushblack

Shadow - MAC Eyeshadow in Knight Divine

For the lips:

Gloss - L'Oreal Colour Juice in Bubble Gum

4) Vibrant Eye, Bright Lip

With the release of her video "Tambourine", Eve definitely nailed the color spectrum. With vibrant colors in shadow and gloss, a trend was re-birthed. This look absolutely suits the nightlife girl, the adventurous girl and the glamour girl. If your outfit fails to be on point, this fresh summer look is guaranteed to have heads turning as you strut by.

For the eyes:

Liner - Both MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack for the top lid and MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder for the bottom lid.

Mascara - MAC Zoom Lash in Zoom Black

Shadow - MAC Eyeshadow in Electric Eel

For the lips:

Gloss - MAC Slimshine Lipstick in Tropical Glow


Blush - MAC Powder Blush in Raizin

**Give it a trial run Ladies. Tell me if the looks suit you. With makeup, it's always fun to try out new colors and products before sticking with your favorites. As for me, you can clearly see through my recommendations that I'm a MAC customer. MAC has yet to fail me with it's products. With the right tools and the right colors, you can achieve any look. So pick up the products and tell me if the looks are a go or a no-go for you.
