This month the commercial for Gatarade that I worked on with Dwayne Wade finally came out. It was a day full of grooming Dwayne, designing wigs, and creating rip away clothes. It was a great time, but I'm sure I'm not making any sense right now so let me just slow down and start from the beginning.

Well it all started on a hot day in June when I got a phone call from my booker from the Opus Beauty agency. They wanted to see if I was available to.....



Beauty Questions
Beauty question: "I'm African-American with a dark brown complexion. I normally wear fuchsia lipstick but I would like to try a more subtle brown lip color, but I'm afraid it will just blend into my skin. What do you suggest?"- from Marcy in Ohio.

Answer: If you feel a typical brown lipstick is not to your liking, try the shade in a different texture like one with shimmer in it. I like the Black Opal Patent Lips Liquid Lipstick in Uptown Brown. The bronze flecks of shimmer give the color additional depth and dimention that won't 'blend in' to your skin town.



MY FAVORITE THINGS

My favorite thing this month is the NYX Black Lable Lipstick. I really like how you don't need a lot of it, because it is so highly pigmented. I like to apply it with a brush instead of straight from the tube so I don't waste any of it.

It is a great creamy lipstick to try! Love it!
