LIFT: 2011 BET Awards

L.I.F.T = Looks I’m Feeling Today!!
I really enjoyed watching the 2011 BET Awards last night. The host, Kevin Hart, was too funny. It kinda hurt laughing so hard. The “Real Husbands of Hollywood” parody sketch were simply hilarious. I also watched the pre-award show and it was nice seeing the all the Nominees for Best International Act (Africa). But I was even more excited that 2Face Idibia and D’ Banj were the big winners of that category. The highlight of the show for me, were the performances by Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland and Patti LaBelle. So, on to the the important stuff 🙂

As for the fashions and makeup looks, ummmm, I wasn’t really wowed, but I did like Tracee Ellis Ross and Kelly Rowland’s looks.  I also liked Eve’s hairstyle at the pre-award show performance. 

Kelly Rowland's Makeup is totally on point!

I love her pink dress. She looks amazing!

Tracee Ellis Ross...I love her shoes

Eve's hairstyle was the business

I thought D'Banj looked great

My ChaCha’s Wedding

One of my favorite cousins, Yetsa and her boo, Sly, got married a couple of weekends ago. Now, I have been to a million weddings (well, maybe only a thousand, lol) and I have to say, her wedding is hands down one of the most fun weddings I have ever attended. It was like a family reunion, I also met some fantastic people and of course we all danced our hearts out, lol. The whole weekend was simply perfect. Yetsa has been so supportive of my Makeup Artistry Business and this blog. She is truly an amazing soul. I was honored to provide makeup services for the bride and her bridesmaids. Below are pictures of the Bridal Party:

Blush Review: Warm Berry Blush

Hellooooooo…is anyone there??? Pls excuse the silence on the blog. I can’t believe it has been over a month since I last shared with you guys. May was a crazy busy month, but I am back. Thanks for all the concern and questions I received while I was gone.

So, while I was at Walgreens last month, I came across the most amazing deep colored blush called Warm Berry.

Below are some pictures:

The Packaging

Blush Swatch

I love, love, love how pigmented this product is. It’s a great color for women of color. The color payoff is great and one might have to apply the blush sparingly to avoid putting too much product on your cheeks. It blends with ease and gives a great glow as well.

Pros:

Amazing product for the price ($5.69)

Cons:

Very pigmented, so you need a light hand when applying the product… this is really a Pro in my opinion.

Verdict: Most have blush!!!

Price: 5 out of 5

Packaging: 4 out of 5

Functionality: 5 out of 5
